I think i may have a sore throat tomorrow, i have been on a chat-a-thon over the last few days ! I met Kirsty at her favourite coffee shop yesterday and i think we had a bout a three hour catch up and of course spent some time talking about Scrapstars :) Then today i went to meet my friend Val for lunch and we chatted from 12 - 3, straight from there I went to see my mate Claire so from around 3.15 to 8.15 yes a straight five hours, Claire and i were catching up. Craig can't believe that women can get together and talk for five hours straight! It's always the same when i see Claire, I usually go straight from work and stay from about 5 - 10 and Craig is always amazed, i just say "I could have been there until midnight and we still wouldn't have run out of things to say"! It's good to catch up with friends, and even though we don't get to see each other as often as we would like, we just pick up where we left off, it's great, love you guys. :)

I cant believe how long it's been since I blogged but i have been consumed with work and the fast approaching Scrapstars retreat. Things have been pretty grim at work, with the recession hitting hard and work being very thin on the ground. We have had to carry out redundancies and i have found myself (very reluctantly) promoted to personnel department (just me with a little help from my colleague Mel). It has been grim following the redundancy procedure at our factory in Liverpool and has meant me putting a lot of extra days in at work, last week I worked every day, Yes, that was a shock to the system, it's been a while !!!! Anyway, my solace has been my crafting and (ignoring most of the housework last week) in the few snatched half hours here and there that I did have, I did my best to switch off with a bit of crafting. I have been making lots of cards, yes cards !!!! for my Stampin Up demos, and have also managed to do a scrapbook layout with Stampin Up papers. This is not all last week! I'm not super woman, this has been the work of the last 3 weeks or so :)
I chose the Stampin Up Big Top Birthday papers, as they are right out of my comfort zone! As often happens once i've taken my photo, I then decide i should have added more, so it may be one of the four B's, bunting, butterflies, buttons or brads! Enjoy.
