Do you want a ride?

Firstly I would like to apologise to you all, I haven't been a very good blogger. I haven't put anything on my blog since Sunday and I've tried to do some blogging where I could. But with DT commitments, a meeting and an open day at school for Bobby, then some family issues, this week just seems to have passed me by quickly. I will try to get on top of things and get back into a bit of me time. Now enough of the rambling and onto this:

This weeks challenge at Polkadoodles is set by Brenda and the theme is "Something For A Boy". I used the All Around And Everywhere for everything apart from the scooter which is from the Not For Girls CD Rom. I've used some buttons from the CD and then applied Glossy Accents.

The winner will receive a special blinkie for use on their blog and something scrummy from Polka Doodles! Runners-up will also receive Blinkies!

Make sure you tune into Create and Craft this Sunday 27th June at 2pm to see the talented Nikky launch her brand new CD Paper Boutique 2 Creative Christmas. The lucky DT have been having an advanced play with the CD to create samples for the show and I can tell you it's fabulous, one you won't want to miss. The design papers are so gorgeous and there's great stuff on there to use. I will be showing my samples Sunday and Monday to give some idea of what you can do.

We had a meeting at the beginning of the week then an open day yesterday at school for all the parents who have children moving up from nursery to full time school. Bobby starts full time School in September and we've just bought his school jumpers. He just looks too young and small to be gone all day away from me. He's just going along with it all and doesn't seem bothered at all, which is how I want it, I had all the tears and screaming from my daughter who has never really settled into school life. I know it is me that will be crying after I've left him on his first full day. So next to get the rest of the uniform, PE kit etc...............Lol!


Stamps - Polkadoodles,

Fab card Tracy, sometimes we just have to put craft on hold. I can remember when Mackenzie started school, I was in tears too. I still get like it after the summer holidays. It makes you realise just how fast they grow up.

I love that card.
It is hard when they start school full time. My youngest was the one that didn't want me to leave her there. It broke my heart.
Good luck
