Beloved Blossoms


Wow I have had a busy weekend. My parents came to visit so they could look after my son whilst we decorate his room. We can't have him in the house as he has ADHD and just jumps in the roller tray or tips paint over himself.
So we managed to decorate his room, but now boy do I ache. We ended up taking 8 rubbish sacks to the tip (sorry don't know what Americans call it).
My parents left this morning, it was lovely to see them, but now I have to deprogram Luke from all the bad behaviour my dad has taught him!
The biggest drawback was that we took everything out of Luke's room and put it in my craft room, so I haven't been able to get in there for four days! Major withdrawal!
I made this for today's technique challenge on Splitcoast. It is reverse masking and it is a sort of case of one of my own cards. I'm not that happy with how it turned out, it's a bit boring, so I'm going to have another go at the challenge I think!
But finally, happy belated Easter everyone, I'm feeling sick from eating too many chocolate Easter eggs, and for those of you reading this in the US our easter eggs are the size of a child's head not the little ones you get in an Easter basket. You can see an image of one here. No more chocolate for me for a while, lol.
And finally, finally, happy birthday Beate! :)

Waving Hi! I just read your comment in my blog. I found you recently and tonight I finally set up my links- and you are one of them! And I'm not nearly as crazy as I sound!

As an ex pat, now happily living in Florida, I can tell you we call it "the dump".
Ask me anything, I'm quite bi-lingual now :)
Just found your blog - I'm curious though, how do you get SU to the UK? I didn't think it was available there yet....
