I'm pretty sure that time is on warp speed at the moment and I wish someone knew how to turn it down a bit!  Things were supposed to get easier once my course finished but obviously I stacked up a load of stuff for "after" and still haven't quite caught up with myself yet.

I have managed some time at my desk this week, to make a card for a lovely friend's 30th birthday.  I hope to goodness that she likes pink!

We went out for a drink for her birthday last night and the night before that I went to see Strictly Confidential with another couple of friends.  Seriously, I go for months without going out at all and then I go out two nights on the trot!  

Today I am doing a photo shoot in Beaulieu with my lovely niece.  She has some great ideas for her and her baby but I hope she is not disappointed.  I get a lovely shot once in a while and then people think I can do full on shoots!

We've also been busy with Bugsy Malone recently which is now finished.  Here is my boy sporting the remains of his pencil moustache after his performance.  Considering they are only just 7, they did amazingly well.

Please link up with the rest of the desks at Stamping Ground if you want to join in the fun.  In the meantime, keeeeeeeeeep dancing!!

(and if you were interested in the viewmaster reel from the scrapbook layout in the previous post, it was in an ephemera pack from October Afternoon.)

Bye for now

  4. Your boy looks great all dressed up. My girl really enjoyed putting on Bugsy Malone at primary school. Good luck with the photo shoot. A friend (and great photographer) charged me with getting portraits and a group at our recent school reunion as he couldn't make it. No pressure then!

    Fiona xx #30 something I think!

  5. Who doesn't like pink, Lisa. Those papers you are using look gorgeous.
    You certainly sound very busy, I bet Strictly was brilliant wasn't it.
    Looks like you have a star in the making too there.
    Happy WOYWW
