We have entered my beautiful 8 yr old grandaughter Katie into the Argos Find the Face competition for their new kidswear range. If you wouldn’t mind clicking on this link and going to most liked and search Katie Charman and vote for her it would be much appreciated. She could stand to win a load of new clothes and would just LOVE that!!! Thank you.
A page for my youngest grandson Jack’s 2nd birthday and my eldest grandson Ryan’s 13th birthday which we celebrated yesterday. Plus a photo of the joint cupcakes!
My son just sent me these gorgeous photos of my youngest Grandson Jack digging in the garden today so I had to make a scrapbook page!
My 12 yr old Grandson Ryan borrowed my Beatrix Potter CD’s yesterday and made some cards. I am so proud of him, he has such a lovely creative imagination and loves making cards. He made 2 easel cards and 2 pyramage as well as another, 5 in total and all decoupaged and cut beautifully!
This card was made by my 12 yr old Grandson Ryan.
He has always been crafty, he has even been to a class with me, bless him. He has held several card sales at his home having dropped flyers into the neighbours beforehand and has made quite a few pennies at it.
He is very talented and my daughter Laura asked him to make a card for her to give to her best friend Steve and he produced this today. He has used the FF CD to print out and cut out the image beautifully and has decoupaged it. He has added the little touches like the name on the number plate and he cut and embossed the star with his new acquisition of the Zipemate, some dies and embossing folders which I passed onto him and it was a step up from his Cuttlekids which I bought him a few years back!
I hope he continues with it, he is very talented and I can see him going far with it. I am sure he will be a designer of some kind, so watch this space!!

Happy New Year to everyone, hope 2011 brings all you wish for.

Laura got hit by a snowball!
Had to post some pictures of the snow as we rarely get it this deep here! This is my children and grandchildren in the garden playing in it!! Not sure who was having more fun the grown up kids or the babies!!!
I spent a wonderful afternoon Christmas crafting with the grandchildren and some of my kids this afternoon. We decorated ornaments and made paper chains and this is Ryan’s Santa wall hanging. He painted and glittered it beautifully. He is an extremely talented young man who follows in my crafting footsteps and we share a love of all things crafty!! My grandaughter is showing signs of following us too and made an equally gorgeous Santa herself. I am a lucky Nanna!

He has had awful tonsillitis and has hardly eaten all week so he got away with it!!
