So what about the blog hop? I told you the girls rocked this one! Thanks to all of you for your comments...I've had quite a chuckle reading how some of you are comparing yourself or friends/family to the images lol.
I never managed to do the hop until the next day. Nicole's wedding dress came in and we could only go Tuesday morning at 9:30. I had to drop the dogs at Doggy Daycare and pick Nic up at 8:45 ... we were doing really well, chatting away. Came off the roundabout onto the slip road that takes us onto the motorway and came to an immediate stop....the traffic was backed right past our exit. We both swore at the same time lol and then Nic told me to reverse back up the slip road and go a different route!!! Ok...can you picture me halfway down the slip road, reversing with cars swerving to miss me? I think not! She insisted it could be done but I just told her to phone the store and tell them we'd be late hmph. Now I worry that she might do something like that herself if she was late for something...it's no wonder mom's colour their hair lol. We managed to get to the store 30 minutes late and as her appointment was for an hour we still had plenty of time. When she came out of the dressing room she looked beautiful...and I did get the lump in the throat and a tear in my eye again. Wonder what I'll be like on the day! I thought we were heading home but she had other ideas. We looked at bridesmaids dresses and found a beautiful one (I picked it...I'm 2 for 2 lol) and the girls are going to look stunning in them. Then Nic got it in her head that we had to look for the MOB outfit. I dreaded this as I don't do dresses and wanted to wear palazzo type trousers so it would look like a dress but I was shot down pretty quick. We went to a store that sold MOB dresses and my worst nightmare was realised....look what she stuffed me into .....
OMG...I could give Joan Collins a run for her money! There was no point in arguing so I managed to just about get myself into it though couldn't do the zip up lol. I LOVE the colour but it's just so OTT and well....shiny!!!! I can't believe she thought I would wear something like this...she's so disappointed I'm not going to buy it...and so was the saleswoman. Once she realised I wasn't parting with the best part of £800 she lost interest in us lol. There's no way I'm going to be paying that kind of money for a one off hmph.
Here's a picture I took of Ryan last week. The guy on the tv is Will Young who won Pop Idol (it's now called X Factor) 10 years ago and from the minute Will came on the screen all those years ago people keep telling Ryan he's his double which he hates!
I don't know...I think they could be twins separated at birth lol
I'm demonstrating at Craft World this weekend. This is their biggest demo day of the year...there will be 14 of us demonstrating various products. If you're in the area make sure you pop in...there's plenty of stash to stock up on and from memory there's tea and coffee and muffins from Costco!!
This is one of the samples I've made them...
I just love Beach Babe...she kinda reminds me of my MIL but when I told her that I think she got a bit miffed lol. I bought the Fancy Pants 6 x 6 pp from Hayley ages ago and it was perfect for the image.
I added the white spots to the costume with my Inkssentials pen
Each image comes with 3 sentiments for £6.99...great value for money. Laura did an amazing job getting the images exactly the way I wanted them.
Dinner's almost ready so I'd better get the table set. Don't forget to come by and say hi if you make it to Craft World....I'll be upstairs :-D
Have a great weekend whatever you're up to.
Catch ya later x
