Hopefully you can expect a few more pictures this week as tomorrow is Harry's 2nd birthday, in fact in exactly 18 minutes it will be the exact time he was born two years ago, 24 minutes past midnight, February 28th 2005. I think at this point I was completely away with the fairies on pethidine and telling the midwives I'd had enough and was packing my bags and going home! I'd only been in hospital one hour when he came into the world, it was the best day of my life and gosh, that was two years ago! Where has my baby gone?! We're having a little get together on Saturday for him, to give me a chance to catch up with my friends and Harry the chance to play with their children. Really looking forward to it already. Just finished making his birthday card, and also this LO - my first 8.5x11 - taken when we visited The Deep last August. I love that picture. Both the card and LO were taken from sketches in the fantastic Creating Keepsakes Easy Patterns For Scrapbooking magazine/book that I picked up in the USA. It's filled with ideas for LOs, and shows you how best to use patterned paper, which I often struggle with it. Every page shows more gorgeousness and I would definitely recommend it.
See you soon!

Anyway Florida was amazing, not so much the weather (it was freezing in Disney World, I was soooo cold) but the stash shopping was just fantastic. I bought so much stuff, as I knew I would, including a tote and a Cuttlebug, which I just love and have almosr worn out already while cutting alphabets for a swap. It really does cut chipboard and embosses so well. I was also really pleased to find alphabets are quite reasonable to buy in the UK as well. They were my biggest bargains (the Cuttlebug was only $40, about £21) but there were just too many to mention. I'm still trying to find room for it all but I am a very happy bunny. Now all I need is some time to stop and scrap and use some of my new stash and hopefully produce something as good as LOs published in the US magazines, all I can say is wow, they are so inspiring (brought a few mags back as well in case you hadn't already guessed!)
Didn't take too many pictures while away, Harry was still getting over the flu and just wasn't himself and we didn't really get up to too much, apart from Disney and shopping of course! But I'll try and get dh to put my pc back together (don't ask!) and see if I can upload some tomorrow.
Bye for now. :)

I still have loads to do, although the list is getting shorter, just a Clippykits cosmetic bag, my mum's recipe tin and my CJ to do now. Tomorrow is the Leeds crop so hopefully I should get a fair bit done, at least I hope so as time is really running out now. I can't wait to get away though, I'm so looking forward to devouring all the goodies in the scrapbooking shops there and my mum has already booked me in for a two-hour class, bless her! But that means I have to take a few things with me, which leaves less room for new stash on the way back LOL!
Sorry I've not posted pictures of my returned CJ yet, I will get round to it soon I promise!
Bye for now!
