Yay! It's Saturday!! :)

Wow! Thank you so much to everyone for your lovely comments!! I'm so glad you liked the little freebie... I don't think I've ever had so many comments or views in one week EVER! LOL...

Nothing much is new this week... I don't have anything new to release this week cos I thought I'd give myself the week off from designing, and just chill out... and this weekend I'm scrapping - can you believe it? LOL! It's been so long since I've done any pages, and it's been so much fun! I picked up the Love Sprung Kit by Dani Mogstad & Traci Reed and I L O V E it!!! I think I'm gonna have to do a whole album with this baby... might take a year, but anyway. It's so cute and springy and just makes me feel happy to look at. Here's 2 of the LO's I've done with it this weekend:

These photos are so long overdue to be scrapped - they are from the day we found out we were having a baby! Like back in November - LOL! I got the template from the Cookie Decorating 101 Challenge at Sweet Shoppe from March 28th. If you want to see the full credits, you can check it out here.

and these are some photos that DH took with our new DSLR last weekend, of me and my number one little fur-baby, Bonnie... LO was inspired by Jamie Waters' "This Floppy Hat" LO in the March issue of Creating Keepsakes. Full credits here.

Apart from that, nothing much new to share... I decided to dye my hair last night cos I was looking through photos from my Hens Night when my hair was a little bit darker. So, I went and got a hair dye from the shop, "Natural Light Golden Brown" was the name. So, I'm thinking that it sounds perfect, won't be too dark, just a nice change from blonde... well...

... turns out me & Clairol have very different ideas on what "Light Natural Golden Brown" actually is - LOL! That'll teach me to colour from a box... Ah well, a change is as good as a holiday, and it's growing on me... slowly - LOL! I keep getting a shock every time I look in the mirror...

Anyways, that's it for me this week. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

A New Home!

Well, I thought it was time for a bit of a change, so I've moved my blog! Yay!! I absolutely hated my last blog - it'd take me a good hour to post anything because it'd freak out if I had too many pictures, etc, and it just wasn't functional for me... hence why I never posted - LOL! So, hopefully this one will be a lot easier to keep updated, and I'll be able to fulfil one of my New Years Resolutions (to blog more) - LOL!

So... first up I'd better get the business end of things sorted. I have a new kit in store this week, and I have to say I'm so excited about this one! It just seemed to come together so nicely, and I'm really happy with how it turned out:

You can check out My Sunshine HERE

... and because I just couldn't stop on this one, and kind of to celebrate my new blog, I've created a little goodie for you guys! This little kit will co-ordinate perfectly with the My Sunshine Kit, but is pretty cute on it's own too!

You can grab the My Little Sunshine Freebie HERE
Now, onto other things... Those of you who know me already know that my DH and I are expecting our first baby in August - yay! I seriously can't wait, and to make things even better, it turns out that according to my size, etc, my due date has actually been moved forward 2 weeks!! So, it's looking like Christmas might come even earlier for us this year! I just can't wait to meet this little person... it's funny, I get all teary thinking about giving them a cuddle, changing nappies, etc - LOL! I'm sure that'll wear off after a couple of weeks of actually changing nappies - LOL! I think it's just hit me that we will actually have a real baby soon... I think because I'm starting to show now so it all seems a bit more real. And, can I say what a relief to finally look pregnant instead of just fat?!?
After months of saving my designing money, and procrastination on my part, and then finally deciding that I earnt it, so I can spend it - LOL - I finally bought myself a Digital SLR!! Woohoo!! I'm absolutely terrified of the thing, but it is so nice to use!! I'm still used to my old film SLR, and macro lenses, so this one's taking a bit of getting used to. I think I'm so used to not wanting to "waste" film, that I've been holding off on taking a lot of photos... but hey, I can take hundreds now and delete what I want! Marty isn't so afraid of it and took some really nice photos last weekend. I think he's a better photographer than me, although I won't tell him that - LOL! I'll share some next time when I've downloaded them off the camera :)
Anyhow, that pretty much brings me up to date for the last little while... it's a bit sad huh? I really need to get myself a life - LOL!
Thanks for reading if you've gotten this far! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
