A Reminder

I would like to remind you that the brand new Challenge blog "Oldie But A Goodie" will be going live tomorrow, please pop by and support us. You can blow the dust of some of your old stamps as we only use stamps on our challenge blog that are older than 6 months.

I actually had a good weekend, I got another TH distress ink to add to my collection, thats 11 colours now I have, only 25 more colours to go Lol!

And on Saturday at 5.00 pm we decided to go to Scarborough (only a 1 1/2 hour drive Lol) for a bag of chips at our favourite chippy up one of the back streets. We walked on the beach and the kids collected some shells. It was quite a nice evening not cold, just a bit of a breeze coming in from the sea. Then they had an hour in the arcades, then it was an icecream walking back to the car, then home. It was lovely, it wasn't planned but a moment of impulse kinda thing.

Then sunday was spent getting the kids ready for school and I got an hour or two in crafting, doing some samples for a great new Polkadoodles CD-Rom.

I am having trouble with blogger and commenting, but I am trying to get round you all. I don't know what's wrong with him as for the last couple of weeks it has happened about three times now.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Happy crafting
