London hello!!

Hi guys, well we made it safe on Friday even though the drive down was horrendous, we left just after 10 and only got to my sisters at 2.30. a long drive to say that it only normally takes us 2 and a half hours( reason? some scarey looking accidents). At least I took a lap tray with me and a cute project I was working on for the Summer Design challenge form Stampin'Up, and the good news is that I finished the project by the time we got to London. I am going to tell you bit more about this design challenge because you might want to join in yourself and win some FREE stamps.

To be in with a chance you have to create a summer-inspired project using Stampin' Up! products from the current UK Idea Book & Catalogue 2008-2009, and submit it no later than 31 August 2009. And this is what is up for grabs

I can't show you mine just yet, but I can tell that I've used the colours of the Sea as my colour combination.

I have a card to show you next, it was made for Clair to apologise that I failed to send her a Birthday card. When you join my team you get to register to a website and here you get to put down a few favorite things as well as your birth date. Now Clair and Sharni come as a one, so like any fabulous mother out there Clair put her daughter s first and Sharni's details were put down
I made a mental note then to ask Clair for her own birth date as well but unfortunately that s all I did a mental note only and I forgot. So I made her a card to say sorry form the heart for missing it. Here it is

Pink Passion, Old Olive and Haiku designer papers makes for a wonderful and summery combo. The bold flower is from the level 2 hostess set Cause for Celebration, and they were stamped in Pink Passion and cut out. I hope you can forgive my Clair and I hope you has a wonderful day. Hugs M xx
We are just out the door now we are going to the London Zoo for the day then later on I will get to meet with Bekka and Karin a fellow demonstrator, cannot wait!! Have a lovely Saturday. Hugs Monica xxx
