NOT MUCH TO REPORT...

It's a week since my last post - what have I been doing???? Well, not much really (apart from ferrying kids around)....

On Saturday I went to the Aberdeen Crop at the Papermill in Dyce - great laugh.. and loads of cake!!!! Jude decided that the time was right for her to come along and so she has survived her first crop.... I am hoping she enjoyed it.... I wasn't very productive tho... Did manage to make one LO and did some sewing of a grungepaper bag that was featured in the October issue of Craft Stamper which I will show when it's finished (so should be sometime about July then...lol)...
I used Making Memories acrylic paints in Red Wagon and Eat Your Carrots and just splooshed the watered down paint on the page.... I then used the photographs from Niamh's secret photoshoot that I blogged last week... The hearts and flowers were cut out using my Sizzix machine and then I ran the kraft ones through the corrugator (not sure if that's the right name for it but you know what I mean)... I then stamped the date in the corner with the Making Memories magnetic date stamp set and that's it... I was trying to do this in a Dina Wakley kinda style but not sure I succeeded... but I like it....

Yesterday I received my blog candy parcel from Debbie at Country Heart and Home and Niamh and I promptly set to work with it... As some of you may know my oven went out with a 'bang' a couple of weeks ago and until such times as I get another we are making do so with this in mind we decided to 'bake' a pudding/cake.......using the slow cooker.....

Chocolate and Banana Pudding with Chocolate Sauce












Turned out ok and tasted absolutely delicious....very sweet... so thank you once again to Debbie for the lovely parcel....
Have also made a 'pink' card today for Jacqui's challenge over at Simply Create which I will drop of to her on Saturday at the Post Christmas Party which she is hosting... Can't wait...Lots of people going including my two good friends Susan and Sonja....that's it for today...xoxo
