We're back!!!

Hello we got back last night, shattered and just in time for a live event I had organized with the lovely Passionettes. It was a lovely weekend and even though we never did made the London Zoo we still had a lot of fun. We visited the RAF Museum in Colindale Sunday before heading back up North and I really,really enjoyed it!! I didn't think it will fly my plane (not funny I know) but it did, I found it fascinating.
So amazing getting so close to those wonderful planes each with their history, we could have spent hours there but we did not have them to spare. We have decided to return some other time.
I know you re probably wondering how the boy is, well one word will describe him right now and that s boisterous, golly gosh talk about strong minded, I pity my poor sister even though she copes so well with him and manages to keep him told, while I don't stick a chance at telling him off. I was cleaning my teeth Saturday morning and he was assisting me perched on the toilet seat, well you know when you scoop water with your hand to get some water and rinse the toothpaste? I never thought about it and next thing I know he is trying to imitate the exact movement and water gets everywhere. Seeing him doing was sooo funny so instead of telling him to stop all I could do was laugh which sent him laughing and doing it again LOL. Mummy walks in shortly after so by now you get the picture LOL.
We kept laughing about it afterwards. Here s my favourite picture of the weekend an ***All teeth smile*** shot, KUTe!!
Crafting news? well Sunday is the day a new challenge gets posted over at SWUS and this weeks is a 2 designer papers, one ribbon, one piece of hardware. Here is my card
Love this colour combo a lot. Choc chip, Cameo Coral and So Saffron. I used So Saffron designer papers and I have over stamped one layer using the Hostess level 2 stamp set Fall Flair. I had this set since the beginning of this new catalogue and I recently found it behind a unit in my craft room, it must have fell behind it and I forgot that I even got it, needless to say I delved in straight away and used it here. The beautiful sentiment from Occasional Greetings was inked using the markers, taffeta ribbon finishes off this elegant looking card. The ribbon slide was filled with glitter and the brads were glitter covered as well.
Ok I ve got to go as I ve got some projects to finish for some online classes? Have you registered yet?
See you again very soon. Monica xxx
