Thought I would share a couple of cute photos of our young cat Sunny he likes his comfort as you can see from resting on my cusions that I put on the floor while sorting an area of the room out and he decided that it was great to go to sleep on especially as he was leaning against the warmth of the radiator. In fact he is against the heater again tonight as I type this. I am sure you will agree he is a cutie.

Here are some more layouts I have done for my sons album he is 18 next month so I have been doing this album which represents his life up to 18 years of age. The one with the train is at Towyn Mid-Wales I always took the boys on the narrow train this train was Peter Sam to do with Thomas the Tank Engine. Another is with my ex-partners dog Fergie a Red Setter she was a gentle giant a wonderful dog and the same temperment as Ds. Police pals was taken at a open event in Towyn where the Army, RAF, Police etc were all in attendance and they had the chance to get on the Police bike that was a fantastic day. Towyn is just a general one of when DS was just coming back from a morning in the rock pools. Family generations this photo was taken around the time of my parents 40th anniversary. In the photo is myself and my 2 boys, my brother, his wife and step-daughter, my parents and my Nan (she is still alive now and is the grand old age of 96).
I signed up for the usual Advent swap and I am really looking forward to it this year as I know what to expect this time. This will be my 2nd Advent swap I have bought some bits and pieces and very crafty slipped a few things in for me and Mother. I am also doing a Secret Santa with the team I am in on uks. I have been sorting the boxes out for each swap and they are getting fuller each time I look I have been busy today sorting my scrap paper drawers out and using my big shot cutting flowers and embossing card etc. Can't wait till Friday when we are give our Advent swapees name.

Again another last minute card to make for a friend/work collegue last friday. I forgot it was her birthday during the half term break so had to quickly make a card up and take it into work with me. I used a medallion 3D peel off onto gold mirror card and cut round and applied 3D pads to the medallion. I just added some birthday banners to the front and a verse inside the card. This card had 6 layers.

At last I have managed to get on to post onto my blog. This is a layout I did the other day for of my eldest son with his brother. The photo is of the pair while they were in Devon on holiday with their Dad. I am trying to do an album for my eldest son to celebrate his life up to 18 years as he will be 18 next month.
I used the male papers from Dovecraft, the title is a rub on which I got in the sale for 50p and the sticker is another sale item too.

I actually managed a layout this morning - YES!!!. Well the brodband was down so had time to think on this one took ages just to find a photo out. A few weeks ago I asked my teamies to put suggestions in to liven up the team abit we decided because of the Christmas swap we were do and it getting a bit close to Christmas we would do some challenges using a sketch or colours etc. On of the team find a sketch out and this is my result not very inspiring I know but I managed to at least do a page of my Nan is is 96 and being a right pratt at the moment. I can't remember what paper I used but just used some PM buttons, HOTP paper for backing the photo and used some fancy edge scissors for the title and journalling.
I have managed to sort out my cricut as asking someone on the Circut thread on UKS and here is the result. These are a square and round little Christmas bag which I cut from the Cricut there will be a few more but I would like to give one to each female members of the family with tissue paper and sweets/Chocolates/nuts in or pot puree in. Just hope they will like it.
