early birthday

because im obviously going to be in florida on my birthday, i was allowed a few presents a bit early. although i felt guilty as im a big believer in getting presents on the day and not before. so anyway, here's a little peek at what i got.

i got some pink paislee stamps, an underwater disposable camera (will use on water rides), a print of the evil queen from snow white and a gingerbread man charm from links of london. my dad also gave me some dollars.

speaking of dollars, this time tomorrow we'll be sat on a plane waiting to go! so im sat here waiting to be able to check in 24 hours before so we can get decent seats. last time we flew to the US we weren't even originally in the same row!

new 'do

finally got my barnet chopped..marcus likes it flicky but I like it short.
here's me in the prom dress

managed to scrap something today!

tonight we're looking around a small country house as a possible venue for our evening do (for the wedding). we've already seen a couple but nothing so far is right. one place on friday was lovely..good food, nice building..the only problem was they had caravans which were visible from the garden, and these were permanent with residents and everything. ick. i have nothing against caravans but not in my wedding photos thank you!

happy day

  • national scrapbooking day to be precise! have a scoot around the scrapping blogs and you might find some giveaways. alternatively, vist elles and shabby chic designs and each order today gets a little freebie :) who doesnt like presents!

  • check out this post by ali edwards. her mixed media books are so amazing. i know if i tried something like that it would look as if it was made by a 5 year old! (picture from ali's blog)

  • another etsy shop worth checking out is riff raff designs, funky laser cut chipbaord shapes.
