No scrapping for me as its half term so I've been entertaining the boys which means loosing at chess with my youngest son who I might add has already hustled me out of a pound and its only Wednesday!

In light of my defeat I thought the safest way for me to keep hold of my money was to tempt the demon monster into the kitchen to do some baking, worked like a treat. We made some chocolate chip cupcakes complete with lemon button cream topping, finished off with some chocolate sprinkles, perfect.

However, no amount of money offered can persuade an 8 year old to do the washing-up!

A while ago I did a CJ page called 'Wish You Were Here', strangely I decided to do my pages about London as there is something about the place that just gets under your skin and you can't help but love it.

Just Cards!

Not really done much scrapbooking lately but I have managed two cards.
The first was for my step-dad's Birthday and being a keen gardener it had to feature wellies and plant pots.

Supplies: Basic Grey Granola papers, Woodware stamps, MM brads, Hero Arts sentiment stamp, Fiskars border punch and just plain string.

Next is a card I've made for my Mom to give her friend, it had to be feminine, and have either 'Special Friend' or 65 on it, after hunting high and low for a stamp that said Special Friend and finding none I decided 65 it would be.

Supplies: Prima patterned paper, Bazzill In Stitch'z, Slice (for the numbers), Prima flowers, KaiserCraft bling and Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
