Kitty Robot

Some of you may know that I am a DT member for Kitty Robot! and I thought it was about time I wrote an entry about my favorite products! and show some layouts of how I used the buttons!

I must say that Kitty Robot buttons are my favorite embellies! there are soooooo many varieties and the quality of the product is amazing!

The newest addition to the shop is these BRIGHT GLASSED - cute bright and fun buttons handmade from sculpey clay! I have just seen them today and they are my new favorites! they are bright and funky and have alot of detail to them!
Here is a layout I have created using these fun BRIGHT sculpey buttons - set of 9, polymer clay - scrapbooking sewing or craft buttons, (see closup photo below) you can buy them HERE
These buttons I bought months ago long before I was asked to be a DT member! when I got these in the mail I fell in love with these! they so so cute and I cannot explain how much detail is on each button and how much dimention there is! they really make a layout or project stunning.

Here is another layout I made with these bright buttons.

I also wanted to point out these Adorable little owl buttons!!!! I have a couple in my DT pack, I am waiting till I create a layout where these will fit perfect on! again just look at the detail on these!
Kitty Robot create products for all different styles! vintage buttons, cupcake buttons and rainbow buttons! as well as the Kitty Robot kit which is always full of fun and vintage goodness! go and check out the shop HERE!

Eating Hershey's Kisses!

Things have been really busy here the last week! but at last Sunday is here and I slept in until 10am! scrapped this layout for the Scrap Mojo Challenge, and have watched some of the first series of SATC I am kind of having a marathon of the whole box set before I watch the film.

I am in love with these Dymo labels and keep buying them! I keep using them for the back of envelopes and packages! I cannot get enough of the Dymo.
I went for a meal in Covent Garden yesterday and bought some of these gorgeous cupcakes! I could not resist! they are little yummy pieces of art and I love this photo I took.

I have started the gym again! Its alot of money because its an exclusive gym where only people over 18 can join and everything is modern and just lovely! but I need somewhere like that to motivate me to go and get fit!!!!
I have been spending my money Friday ordering online! I have ordered this "Little Miss Giggles" Top! thats so me!!! I am always giggling! I love funny people because they make me laugh I am not a funny person but I like to laugh at people who make me laugh........If that makes any sense lol! people always say to me "what you laughing at?" or "you are such a giggler"

Have a wonderful Sunday, I am going to keep watching SATC I want to be on seies 3 by the end of the day and its 2.30pm so looks like I will be up till midnight!
I have tomorrow off as it is a national holiday so I can stay up late.

Scrap Block

I have been suffering with Scrappers block! I just have not been in the mood to scrapbook! its horrible! here is a layout I did today for Scrapstars you have to think of a person you know who has a song with their name in it and scrap it. Mine is of Roxie, we got her name from the musical Chicago, I love that song Roxie sings "The Name on everybody's lips is gonna be...ROXIE"
I used a mushroom Kitty Robot button! I got in the mail this week, thank you Jodie!!! I am also on the blog this week so go check it out!
I had yesterday off work which was lovely although I spent until 12.30 in the hairdressers, then I went to my local shopping mall, I treated myself to some gorgeous chocolate from a shop called "Hotel Chocolat" Yum Yum! they even give you free chocolate when you are browsing the shop!

Here is what my creative mess looked like today! Sweet Spuds May kit layed out on my floor! I scrapped one layout with it so far. This layout is for Category Stories latest challenge about candy! I LOVE my candy I cannot go a day without it! and I could not resist using some candy/choccie wrappers for this layout.

I have the whole house to myself now for about 4 hours............I am going to do what I have not done in a long time, but some music on REALLY LOUD and dance around my house like I am the best singer/dancer in the whole of the uk! (even though I am the most rubbish)!

Summer Time

It has been hot here in the UK for a week now, summer is officially here! I scrapped this layout this morning, so early because I wanted to scrap but wanted to sit in the sunshine and chillax, so I decided to scrap at 9am. I used some funky Kitty Robot buttons they actually made the layout complete as they added so much dimention and color.

I love this because its true for me at the moment! I am starting to be proud of myself and my beliefs and I am starting to be happy with the person I am becoming! I have alot of strong views and opinions and do not want to follow what is "normal" I want to just be me!

Here is some eyecandy some cupcakes and eyeshadow I bought this week, look at the colors on that eyeshadow!!! it lasts all day which is good for someone like me, I never carry a mirror or makeup so what I put on in the morning has to last lol.

I spent all afternoon in the garden! it was lovely and Roxie came out and sat with me.......she is a strange cat, she does not like going outside in the day. Roxie is getting better though and as its Summer and we are all outside she does not want to miss out on the fun and comes outside to join us!
I took an hour this morning to go though some kits I still have in boxes that I have used but not thrown away the scraps etc, I had 4 boxes and had to decide what to keep! I feel like I have more room now!
Have a great weekend.

Wow! I am so happy right now! sorry to sound like I am bragging but I made this weeks Catwalk HERE with the layout "I Rock" which I posted in my previous post! Lisa Garay picked me! and I am so so honored! this layout kind of ment alot to me, because it was not easy to be positive and the design with cutting out the photo etc was a change for me so I guess this layout has made me feel good about myself a tiny bit.
This layout I created yesterday "A Step Break" having a break on the Spanish Steps in Rome! I used the April Dozens kit! I still have some left! its amazing how much you can make out of kits.Here is today's 365 photo! after having a 3 day weekend (national UK holiday yesterday) I really did not want to go to work today.

Tomorrow after work I am going shopping to spend my birthday money! I cannot believe I have not spent it yet. Its also gorgeous weather here in the UK.........well here in the south! a bit of sun and everyone is in their shorts and flip flops lol. xxxxx

Got My Scrap On

I got up at 9am this morning (late for me) and ate a fruit salad and cleaned my bedroom until there was no dust in site! then got my scrap on! I am liking scrapping on the floor at the moment! I feel I have more space and can move around more.

The top layout was for a challenge on SISTV to do a layout about positive things about yourself. I found this really hard, I know not many people love themselves but I have no confidence in myself! I was bullied pretty much all through school which convinced me I am ugly and I am always negative about myself I never say "I am really creative" or "I am a great cook" which I am........I wish I could love myself more...
This layout Is of the Trevi Fountain in Rome, I thought the paper went really well with the photo! I loved the April Sweet Spuds Kit!

Now this gorgeous piece of art I just had to share with you! I took this photo in Rome, we were walking to the Spanish Steps and came across a man outside his restaurant carving Roses out of a pumkin! I was amazed!

Sunny Saturday

Today is my first day of my 3 day weekend! Its now 4pm here. I went shopping this morning and got back at 1pm! I tried to find a skirt but could not find the perfect one, to big too small or did not like the way it looked. I ended up buying clothes which I did not go to get lol.

I made this layout when I got back, me eating Ice-cream in Italy! using the April Sweet Spuds Kit! I then made some home-made soup from scratch for lunch and bought some french-bread. I have been baking bread too! now I am sitting back relaxing and watching juno for the 3rd time.
Here is what I was wearing today, I can never decide what to wear, what accessories match my outfit and what bag goes! I always judge the weather wrong too! If I wear short sleeves it ends up being a freezing cold day.
Have a great Saturday. xx
