Warmth

YAY! my printer and scanner is all working again! every day I have got it working again it broke down again the next day.......but its been 3 days now and its still working.........so thats got to be good right? so I was able to print this picture of Starbucks Christmas Hot chocolate and scrap the above layout for this weeks challenge at Category Stories the challenge was "Warmth" and I had the idea almost automatically to do a layout of Starbucks hot chocolate. For me its "Instant Warmth" there is nothing better than being cold and buying a yummy hot chocolate from Starbucks to Warm you up.


Last night I went christmas shopping straight from work! it was manic, soooooo busy that I could not enjoy shopping, and thats a Friday night, I dread to think what its like Saturday and Sunday!


Lastly I received a parcel full of Ki memories new "Pop Culture" collection! I love it!!!!
Today I am cleaning the house, then going into the country to a farmshop to buy frozen chestnuts for our Christmas chestnut stuffing! they are already pealed and cooked, you just have to defrost and chop! so much easier! we have had stuffing gone wrong with chestnuts you have to peel and cook yourself!

OH SNAP

At last!!! I can scrap!!!!!!! I have had 10 days without a printer.......and this morning I got it working again, I printed 4 pictures and then the printer stopped working again!!!!!!!!!! which is kind of annoying, but on the bright side I have the four pictures I wanted to scrap with. Hopefully an engineer will be over this week to fix it.

The above photo I have used the gorgeous "Zoe" range from "Love Elsie". I had this idea in my head for ages!!!!! the scan came out a little bright as that is not working well either.

It has got very cold here in the UK the last week! frost all over the car in the morning, so I have to leave 10 mintues early to get the ice off my car! I kind of like it though.......I love this time of year!

A Couple Of Layouts & Scrapping The Music

Here is a layout I created today! I was in the mood to scrap a really bright layout, I feel down today because I have been off work all week and have to go back tomorrow, so to take that dread feeling away I scrapped! its the best therapy lol. This photo is of my brother and I years ago, its such a happy picture, we are drinking non alcholic cocktails! I used Hambly, KI memories felt flowers, foam flowers customised by me you can buy in my etsy shop. Buttons, Queen and Co felt, paint.
Here is my layout for this weeks challenge at Scrapping The Music we have an amazing prize, there will be two winners and two prizes this week! so exciting!
I used some of the lyrics to this weeks song in the border of the photo.
Hope your having a great weekend.

Picture Post

This is such a bad pic of me! no makeup and awful hair which I covered up with a hat, a quick picture of me and Roxie just before I went to the shops to buy some bread for lunch.



Hershey bar which my parents bought back from Las Vegas! we dont get this chocolate here in the UK, we have cadbury's which is probably better chocolate but its nice to have something different.


They bought me 3 packets of these as I love them! when I went to NYC I bought a bucket of these home from the Hershey shop in Times Square lol



Ok these were a BARGIN! here in the UK Timberlands are £100 which is roughly converted $180, but because of the great conversion rate at the moment these boots were $40 which is £20! so I have saved like £80! these boots are somthing I wear for casual days and walking! I cannot believe the price of them!



Lastly a sneak peak of my layout for tomorrows challenge at Scrapping The Music!

Questions Please

I created this lo yesterday at like 6am LOL the idea for this girly hello kitty lo came into my head and I had to scrap it, yeah I know its mega pink but I think it suits the layout. Roxie always follows me around the house and I always say "hello kitty".

My parents are back from Vegas tomorrow! I have really missed being able to speak to them! and Its been hard work having to clean the whole house all the time, normally my mum and I share the jobs but its been such hard work......and Roxie has been a naughty kitty! seriously jumping into washing machines eating wires......all things which could kill her she has been doing.

Ok I am bored Ask me some questions?????????? go on! it can be scrap related to favourites........anything PLEASE COMMENT WITH A QUESTION!
I need a little task lol. I will type the answers and make a post of the questions and answers!

I was also thinking it would be really cool to do a photoswap.........so watch this space I shall make a post! :D

Week Of Relaxation

All is good today because I have my new "Love Elsie" goodies, my first delivery arrived today, I am still waiting for my USA package but half of it is here WOOOO! and of course I jumped right into the stash and created this fun lo "Creative". I used pink a pink background and cut out the patchwork style squares from the Zoe pp and stuck them on individually. The foam flower is handmade available in my Etsy shop. I doodled buttons to frame the photo & ribbon to frame the jounaling.

I love how this turned out, my brother says this is his favourite of all my pages and is very creative. lol



This layout is for this weeks challenge at scrapping the music The challenge this week is the song "Best Days" go check it out!

My week off so far is going well, I am still recovering from my virus, but I managed a trip to Bluewater my favourite shopping mall, I bought a new top and kind of made the mistake of walking into a shop called "Hotel Chocolat" which of course is full of chocolate, and I spent some money on some rocky road and various other chocolate slabs.........I have such a sweet tooth.

My Etsy

Here is some news! I have opened an Etsy Store......... FUNKY DESIGNS

At the moment there are 3 sets of 4 handpainted/handdoodled foam flowers, which was inspired by my little cousian as she had to do an art project and I took her to hobbycraft and looking at kids crafts and found foam shapes including flowers. We added glitter for her project but then I decided to make the leftover foam flowers into cute funky embelishments!

I am hoping to put together some mini kits too soon! but I wanted to test the water so to speak and see if these flowers are a hit and if they are I will create some more. I have just created a paypal account so I hope that all works!







Also I have the whole week of work! horray!!!!!!!!! and Love Elsies Zoe and Noel ranges came out in the UK on Friday so I ordered a next day delivery, so the order will be dispatched Monday and I will receive it Tuesday WOOOOOOO!

I also have some yummy Hambly to play with!

Have a great weekend Love Nikki
