Apologies for the poor pictures..I only get the chance to play after E goes to bed, so poor lighting.

For quite a while I have seen people posting pictures of beautiful organisers, mainly filofaxes. After lots of admiring I decided to take the plunge, but I wasn't willing to pay the huge prices for an official one. So after much hunting I found this beauty.

Nanny decided she wanted to take E to see Santa. So we went, it was all exciting outside but as soon as we got in, the tears started. She backed away into a corner and refused to come out!
Outside in the Christmas market there were reindeer! Unfortunately by that time, E was getting tired and grumpy, and my attempt to get a photo of her meeting them was unsuccessful.

I just had to scrap this photo. This bear was bought last year by nanny and grandad and recited the Night Before Christmas, and this year, Eleanor rediscovered it. The poor thing was played to death. We weren't going to replace to batteries but she loves it so much we might need to. Based on a sketch from chic tags.

Yesterday was my team's last game in the Heartlands series 2013. We lost impressively but I must have done something right as I managed to win Best Newbie. Technically I've been saying for 4 years but what with the time it took for our team to grow and then being off having little E, I've only played in 4 games. Massive confidence boost.

When I said I had finished with my current quirky kit lite it appears I was telling porkies. I hadn't yet cut into that lovely sheet of Glitz Design Finnley I got from the Crafty Templates Quirky Kit extras store, but in order to get the most from it, I cut it down so I still have a piece left. The photo is a lovely family shot from Bristol with pirate Gromit. The 'summer 2013' tab is cut from a current Elles Studio tabbed tag, so economical me gets the rest of the tag too!

Boy am I on a roll at the moment! I'm now managing to scrap some of the lovely photos from our week off together, and these two LOs show our trip to the aquarium and to the beach.
'dont mention the sand' refers to us eating a picnic on the beach with an 18 month old! Not a wise idea. The background was made by misting over some laser cut paper, using it like a mask. Then the mister paper was used on the 'fishies' LO. See, no wastage!
'take me to oz' is based on a sketch on Sarah's Cards blog and uses scraps from previous kits. The July label is actually from a Sweet Spuds kit! Does anyone remember those??
