Playing HookieI was supposed to be at home yesterday, I was supposed to be finishing off David's accounts to get to the Accountant, I was supposed to be doing a little bit of housework and preparing for Rainbows tomorrow but instead I played hookie and went to the Scrapmates crop and do you know what, despite having so much to do today I don't regret it one little bit. I sat with friends scrapping and plotting and planning for an upcoming event that we are soooooo excited about. I spent more time faffing about than scrapping and only managed to get one page finished and one half finished.
Now you all know how much I love my Craft Robo - well it gave up the ghost in December, when I needed it most and in a fit of pique, on impulse and after being egged on by my good friend Eileen (I have to confess not much egging was needed) I ordered a new Cameo Silhoutte and I am so pleased with it.
Don't you love it when things just fall into place. For Christmas Gracia, with a little help from her dad, bought me a lovely owl handbag. As luck would have it I had bought some gorgeous owl paper from ATDML and it was perfect for scrapping the photo I had taken of my bag and purse.
Whilst looking for a suitable title to cut out on the Silhoutte
I came across a print and cut file that perfectly matched the paper
So there we have it - a page that documents my lovely present and how well my girl knows me.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Playing hookie with the girls.
2. A wonderful daughter who is happy to choose gifts that she knows I would like and disregarding the fact that they are maybe intended for women a little younger than I am - I love that girl so much.
3. Still playing hookie from the accounts to write a blog post!
