Mixed Bunch review

Mixed Bunch
So when I have had some craft time in the last few weeks, I'm afraid I have reverted to type, in other words, I need to stand up and say "My name is Caroline and I'm a scrapaholic". The thing is I can pick out one of my packets of papers and embellishments and put the basics of a scrapbooking page together in about half an hour. I sometimes have to go back to it and add more bits and pieces, and of course find some photo's, but when it comes to cards making, i really have to think, so for relaxation, it's scrapping. I guess most cardmakers are the other way around, and they can complete three cards in the time it takes me to make one, but that's just the way i am :)

Mixed Bunch

Robyn and Danielle (her roomie)
Mixed bunch might be the name of the stamp set, but I've also had a few mixed weeks, work has been increasingly difficult, which has impacted on my normally chilled husband, this has caused me to be stressed too and on top of that Robyn's house has finally come through. That's a mixed blessing, Robyn is very excited and can't wait to move in, but of course there is a lot to sort out first, a million things to order and to organize. Robyn has never had to make so many decisions in her life, and where we've always found shopping a pleasure, it has turned in to a chore over the last few weeks. Anyway, as we keep saying, it will be lovely when it's finished, but here are a few photo's .....

Birthday Break ....

Well I have been very remiss at blogging lately and I apologise for that, I had a wee birthday break last weekend, and have been back to a crazy time at work (yes I did a four day week again, phew, and saturday morning urgh). So, being so busy at work has meant that we couldn't take time off for a proper holiday, so i booked us a long weekend away .... you guessed it, to the wettest place in the UK Wales !!! Only i could do it huh. I used to go to Wales with the girl guides camping and have such fond memeries of the place, and remember (even back then) thinking it was really beautiful. Well even in the rain it didn't dissapoint me, it is still stunning. It was my birthday while we were away, and i just thought i would post some pictures of my cards .....
