A Pirates Life

Hello how is everyone?

I have had to schedule this post as I'll be at toddler group being a pirate of course ha ha It's going to be madness but all good fun and hopefully I'll still be awake at the end as I still haven't fully recovered from the weekend. It was a fab but jammed packed one especially when it's nearly the end of school term.  Aswell as the normal swimming and running and a small matter of a running race, I had a party to be organised, reviews to be written up, clearing out of cupboards/folders. And then there's the start of forward planning to be put in place for the new term in August arghhhhhhh!

 So there is no doubt about it I am indeed counting down the days until the holidays, when I can chill out more and spend more time on design work. I  have a few loose ends on the design stage of some stamp sets and I'm continuing to make progress on something new, albeit slow progress lol I wish I could show you all but you will just have to wait!

I can however show you this. It's my turn to post on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog where I'm showing you how I use stamps on my project life pages. Here is a little snippet........

I love the camera stamp and you can never have enough hearts on a layout. 

I'll be back soon with some teacher cards so watch this space!!

I was just about to say happy Thursday but then realised it was only Monday doh!, who knows where my head is at today lol

Anyway it's a very exciting day for Team Sarah Hurley. We are having a super fun blog hop! (you should have arrived from Sarah's blog here ) to celebrate the launch of the new 'World of Imagination' range on the 10th! This is a range Sarah has been working on for over a year and now we are super pleased to be sharing it with the world with this initial launch. 
Each of the Design Team will be sharing the reveal of a new product on their blog, here's my mine...

This is the Make Believe Shop playlet that we sneak peaked last week. Each set comes packaged in it's fun cardboard suitcase for easy storage and travel. The kits are craft ( as you put together some of the pieces yourself) a game for you to use your imagination and create your own storage. They are also educational as they have little learning elements to them, such as facts about cows on the side of the milk!

Isn't this just amazing!!!!

All you have to do now is just hop through all of the teams blogs leaving a comment to let us know what you think of the products. Next you'll be hopping over to Jaine's blog here!

The Mayor of Make Believe will be waiting for you at the 365 blog to see what you thought of the range, tell him what you would like to win and we'll pick one lucky winner to win the prize of their choice 

Goodluck and don't forget to leave your comments.

Happy Friday everyone!

I thought I had this scheduled but it would appear I had put it in drafts doh!

So this months challenge over on the SARAH HURLEY 365 blog is summer brights and if you head on over you will see what the rest of the DT have been up to. I have to confess it's absolutely amazing, as usual there are a real mixture of projects and they all look so bright and cheery! To say I'm proud to be on such a fabulous team is an understatement. Below is my card.......

This super bright card was created using paper from Sarah's March 'A Few Of My Favourite Things' March kit. I also used the girl and sentiment from the Doodle Doll Princess stamp set which I have recently added to my collection. I really love this set! The fence stamp is from my very own Garden Fairy set and the different sized flowers are from my Woodland Fairy set. I love the idea you can mix and match all 3 of my fairy sets.

I'm hoping to make a dent albeit a small one in my to do list today, wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by
