It's a gorgeously miserable day here in Dundee today. We have had quite a lot of rain, so that is a real blessing. Hope we get more though, the farmers in the area really need it!
Just a quick post today, it's a card I created using Hero Arts stamps. Can you tell I am a real fan!
This is the cute little owl that is part of one of their animal sets, isn't he/she too cute. Love the fact that you can shape the words.
Enjoy the rest of your week. Can't believe it's Friday already.
Oh, and by the way. A big shout out to my friend Angella. It's her birthday tomorrow, the 24th. I hope she has a fantastic day. Thanks for your friendship Angella!

This is the view taken from the doorway between our formal and family lounge. My scrap area is in the family lounge, and it is the room we are all always in. We have a t.v. in there, as well as the boys Playstation, and my husbands computer stand is on the opposite wall to my scrap desk, so we all have our little space. The boys also have a desk in the one corner where they sit and do their homework and colour in etc. There is Jamie lying on the couch having his bottle of tea watching Barney!This is a photo of my scrap desk. I had it specifically made when we moved into the house. I made the desk quite high, because I stand and scrapbook, would probably explain the sore back I have at the moment!! The top two drawers on either side are a bit thinner than the others. Everything that I need is right at hand, I love this set up and it works perfectly for me!
I like to display my scrapbook pages for a few days before I put them in albums!
My wood mounted stamps are kept in my top left drawer. I am going to run out of space in this drawer soon!
My Hero Arts stamps, foam stamps and Nestabilities are kept in the next drawer. Also running out of space here!
All my chipboard, and Jamie's cute little fingers!! You will see in the next couple of photos that I use the blue mushroom containers a lot. They have solved a lot of my storage problems, and are free with my mushrooms, which is a bonus!
My flower drawer, top right hand drawer. I use flowers all the time, so definitely need to buy more flowers!
My "bling" drawer. I always look in here when making cards!
Lots of different stuff in this drawer. And as you can see it is the perfect height for Jamie. Bit of a nightmare keeping him out of my drawers. Hopefully the novelty will wear off soon. LOL!!
And my final photo, my ribbon & cotton drawer. Don't know if you can tell, but my blue ribbon is overflowing it's container, and not too much in the others. Quite the indication that I have 3 sons & 1 husband. Nearly no pink ribbon!!!
Hope you have enjoyed the tour of my scrap area. Would appreciate any comments or suggestions on my space?!?

It was a really busy but fun weekend. On Friday afternoon we had Bryce's birthday party. I went to school and fetched him and a whole lot of his friends, wow it was a noisy trip home, I couldn't hear myself think!! The party was a huge success and everyone had a ball. I will try and load some pics of the party during the week. Saturday was his actual birthday, so of course we had an early start to open his pressies. He was over the moon with what we got him and spent a wonderful day playing with all his new things. His best friend came over in the afternoon for a sleepover, we got KFC for supper and then had a marathon game of Monopoly. Yesterday we left all the kiddies with Ray's folks for the first time and went to church on our own. We had an outside minister preaching and it was awesome, there are some amazing things happening in our church, and it is so wonderful to see God's works happening right before your eyes!
Today I am going to post a scrapbook page I did a while ago. This is the first page I created where I incorporated my new stamping hobby, it was so much fun to put together. I used the Hero Arts little animal stamps, and I think they add such a cute element to the page. I find I am using stamping on all the pages that I create now, and it just finishes the pages off so nicely.
Please note, the little beanie Jamie is wearing was knitted by yours truly. Another of my hobbies I try to find time for!
Thanks for looking and hope you have a great week. It is going to be a stinker here today. Jamie has his first swimming lesson today, I have to get in the pool with him, so that is going to be fun!
