Ikea

Now who does not like ikea. well me when its with Em (sister) as she has to look at everything now don't get me wrong i like looking around but i also like getting what i want and getting out of there. The boys like going but not for the shopping for the food but poor Henny can't have the meat balls as they have wheat in them. 
We have not been for ages so on Sunday we decided to take a trip to the Leeds store. I had a few things in mind of what i wanted to get. I want another Raskog kitchen trolly in Dark grey


but when i went to pick it up they had run out so this is on my list for next time. I added a table to my studio a couple of months ago and used some old legs i had but they did not go so i picked some nice silver ones up. It looks so much bester now. 

I Sub every month to Studio calico kits I get the scrapbooking Kit and the project life kit. I really enjoy getting these as they are products in there that i would never buy myself but i love them. Every month in the kit you get a stamp set which i love but i have never known how to store them until i came across a blog post by Celine Navarro She uses the Godmorgon box which is in the bathroom section. 
So here it is empty 
 And here it is after i have filled it with my Studio Calico stamps and Colour theory ink pads. 
 There is so much room and the bit above the ink pads can come off but it would be great to keep pens in there.

Geletos

I have had a pack of Geletos for a bit now but have not really known wot to do with them.
 Then when i was looking on Two peas in a bucket in there class section i saw Wilna Furstenberg Art class 2 which had lots of Geleto techniques. I was really inspired by this class and got the Geletos out to play. The two layout below i used cut files from Wilna's shop iheartstudio.



Now that i was all inspired to use the Geletos i wanted to learn more about wot they could do. So yesterday i went to Art From The Heart for a class with Sandra Hall all about techniques to use with the Geletos. There was so many new things to learn. Like you can use them with or with out Gesso, you can make sprays from them also the one i liked most was mixing it with gel medium. 
 We tried all different techniques out on tags so at the end of the class we got a ring and clipped them together.
 Also a little book we made. I am hoping to do a tutorial on how to make a book like this soon.

Crafty bits

I have been feeling a little crafty at the mo and wiped these layouts out. The photo's on this page below are from a photo shoot i had with kirsty Wiseman last july. I am only just getting round to scarp them.

I Love this one below of Archie going to School on his first day. We could not be more proud of him and he is the youngest in his class.

I have been a little naughty and treated myself to the new Fuji Instax Share printer. The reason why i wanted to get one is because i love my fuji mini camera but sometime i don't have it on me. This printer is ace as you can get the instax phones but using your photos on your phone camera.

 As u can see it prints out really good prints and the good thing is it came with film.
Here is a layout i did about the dogs using the instax's . you will def be seeing more of these on my pages.
 This week i also treated myself to some new stash from Sarahs cards. Most of the order was embellishment as I'm trying to do my project life album. Pictures of that to come.

Mac Girl

I have been in love with Apple for the last 6/7 years when i first got a iMac. Last month tho i had to replace it with a second hand one which hand been down up for me. We had a few problems with it but its working great now. Anyway i have been looking at getting a new laptop for a bit now as mine is old and getting slow. The only problem with Mac Book Pro's is that they are really expensive and at the mo i don't have that ind of money and it will take me forever to save up.

 So as u can imagine it was a really big shock when Em and G came home from a shopping trip with this little baby for me.

 Yes a brand new Mac book pro. I was in so much shock i just started to jump for joy. I got it out right away and set it up.
There was no words i could say to Em and G for getting it me. I love them so very and don't know wot i would do with out them. Now I'm search the net for a case.

So now i think i can say i'm a mac girl with a iMac,mac pro, iPad and iPhone

Cannon Hall Farm

Its bank holiday monday here in the UK today so like most people we are going out for a day. The good thing also about today is it Sunny and if u know the UK u know that most of the time it is dull or raining. Anyway i got invited to go with the Boothmans The Cannon Hall Farm which is a great place i have been once before and it was fun.
As u can imagine it was busy. Em had already decided we would take a picnic with us and it was a good job as the restaurant was packed. We decided to eat before we went into the farm
 1. so we did not have to carry a bag of food round with us
 2. we were all hungry.
I must admit i don't know who enjoyed the day more me or the boys.
                                   I think this guy does not like the dentist very much lol
While the boys went to play in the park i had a wonder round the brans there was about 9 in total file with pigs,cows,sheep and ponies. They had about three barns just full of pigs with there piglets. This litter below i think were born in the last day. There were two really small ones which looked like the rottens of the litter
I loved looking at the baby lambs. I can remember when me and Em were younger we went to farms and got to bottle feed them. I need to find somewhere that do that so the boys can do it.
We did get the chance to store some lambs which the boys loved doing.



This little brown pony was only born this morning.

                                           The boys loved playing in the park
                    Just before we left we had ice lollies to cool us down before we headed home.

Meet Peppa Pig

We are so lucky that we don't live far away from the Yorkshire Wild Life Park. Last year we all got a year pass so we could go anytime. They are in the middle of doing it up and i must say its looking gd so far. We took a trip today as the fames Peppa Pig was going to be there and in are family we have watched many of her shows. Sometime wanting to throwing the dvd out the window.
It was a sunny day so i decided to try my new sunglasses out but two little boys tested them out for me first.

 Mum did not come as her back has been pretty bad at the mo and there is a lot of walking round you have to do.

I was not really impressed with Peppa Pig all she was doing is shacking kids hands and hugging them . it would of been nice if the had a photo area where they could have photos with her. I guess when your young you don't care as long as you see her.

                                         Trying to take a selfie of us all was a bit of fun

 I did not really take loads of pics of the animals this time but here is a cute pic of a monkey you can get really close to them. I stood back when the keeper said they do bit.
 I love seeing new baby animals and there was three new camels. My fave animal has to be the giraffe  i love going to see them and u can get really close to them. On time i never had one licking my hand tried to get dad to take a pic but he missed it.
