Weekend Celebrations

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/24/2007 02:40:00 PM

We have had a really busy weekend, with Izzy's party playing top priority on Saturday. Although, poor thing was extremely poorly first thing and only started to perk up an hour before her party started!!

The theme; High School Musical!. We decked the house in red and yellow balloons, HSM party paraphernalia, gold fringe curtain, lots of poppy music, and a BBQ and cold buffet. Around 40 people arrived (28 being kids!) to celebrate Izzy's birthday. A brilliant evening was had by all, with a few girls dressed in their HSM gear, don't you just wish you were 7 again?!

I was ready to crash when everyone had gone, but opted for a few bottles outside with Sue and Peter instead.
Sunday was clear up day, Sue and I were armed with bin liners clearing up the bombsite that was left, but no casualties were to be found. Well actually thats not entirely true. Poor Holly woke up from Lilly's room with blood pouring from her knee, having been cut by glass/plastic!!! Daylight, revealed a g;ass angel had been broken, poor Holly.... Dr Pete rushed over with his very swish Medical bag and bandaged the patients knee. A quick recovery was made.

Pencil Lines went live last night with our very own Kimmy designing an awesome sketch and providing us with fantastic Francis Meyer sponsorship.

The only additional product i used was a Hambly journalling overlay, all products are Francis Meyer.

I have been working on some projects with the September kit lately. I made this layout for Izzy, using photos taken on Friday, her birthday. All dressed up in her HSM cheerleading outfit. I have a gorgeous black 12"x12" scrapbook frame from "A touch of crafts" that I am going to frame for izzy and put in her room.
Also made this cute "congratulations" card for my cousins daughter who passed her GCSE's with flying colours, all A's and A+.

I received 2 pieces of good news this weekend. 1st i am through to round 3 of Bad Girls Top Designer contest, a complete surprise i must admit, the standard is so high!

2nd news i have, i cannot announce until October 1st, but is very exciting :):).

Hope you all had a great weekend
