Am I going to kill my son or what! He decided he needed fibre optic broadband for his gaming and now my computer is not online!!! The whole shebang had to be rewired and my little computer is not up to the job so I've ordered a cable that should be here tomorrow and hopefully I will be active again. I'm using someone else's cable to post this lol
I'm so late with everything again, sometimes I don't know why I bother. Life is not going to plan this year. I did have a fabulous day at Sir Stampalot on Friday with some great mates and I made some new ones. Louise, who took the class was awesome!!! I love what we made, though true to form mine isn't finished!!!
Any way enough with the chit chat I'm already so late with this.

How much do I love this little stamp? 
Little Miss Hollywood
She's so cute she will have to have another outing soon. 
There's a new challenge that started today at


and once again this was my DT card at


Which I'm sorry didn't make it up on my allotted day, and this is me trying to do better!!
I'm just going to post it now and cut out the drivel! I'll be back to add her to some challenges later
Thanks for sticking with me
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I Heard It On The Radio @ MAWTT

Good Morning lovely people, I hope you are all well . My this year is flying by it must be my age!!! I just can't get my head around crafting and blogging lately, I have been missing in action so long, I thought I would have been back in a routine by now but I'm just not feeling it!!
I am here today with  a card I made weeks ago again which fortunately fits my DT commitments for the new challenge at


and this week we have one of my favourite themes

Heard It On The Radio

I've gone with 'Love & Marriage'
You can't beat a bit of Frank Sinatra!!!
This card was requested after I made one very similar earlier in the year (I think everyone I know wants me to use these images together for a wedding card now, thanks Sharon what have you started!) It is my favourite LOTV stamp so I didn't mind too much lol
I've used some gorgeous My Minds Eye papers that I've had for a while and you can tell from the date of the wedding I added to the card, I made this a couple of months ago.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some
 gorgeous inspiration from my teammies.
That's it from me, enjoy your weekend

Late for Diva's and the Paper Nest DT

Oh my goodness am I in trouble! Why can't I get my head back into making stuff and blogging? I really thought by now I'd be back in the swing of things but there are just not enough hours in my days anymore!! I am totally late for the new challenge that started at


on Wednesday  so I thought I'd combine two and use my


DT card to tell you about both events

The Theme over at Diva's is

In The Pink 

so that's nice and easy for us all and these gorgeous Paper Nest Dolls are such little darlings to colour, so easy to work with and too cute taboot!!!
The lush papers are Maja Design and I love my star hatpins that I've used again.

Head over to 
To check out all the fabulous rubber stamps on offer
and lots of inspiration from the DT

and don't forget to check out Diva's to see what fab prize is on offer this week along with some beautiful makes from my Teammies

I really am sorry I've not been around
I hope I can get back to normality soon!!

Pretty Pastels @ MAWTT

Hello Peeps, I hope you are all well. I'm way ahead of myself here as its only mid March when I'm writing this! I may edit this with an update on life lol
It's time for a new challenge at


and this week our hostess is Kelly
and she has given us a lovely theme of

Pretty Pastels

Nice and easy for us all so I hope you will join us.
Here's my offering, I made this for one of the first blog friends I made, the lovely Sue B and I'm pleased to say we are on 2 fabulous DT's together now so I get to spend lots of 'virtual time' with her!!

The image is of course one from Krista Smith at Saturated Canary, this one is called Yvonne and when I saw her I couldn't resist! I have far too many images, especially Saturated Canary, but I guess that's why its called an addiction!! Papers are from Maja Designs, I think they are the Spring pad. I'm not fed up of using my PTI birthday die yet, I hope your not fed up of seeing it!!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and some super pretty inspiration from my talented teammies.

That's all from me, I will be back tomorrow
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
