Love Is In The Air For Papertake Weekly xx

I just fell in love with this sweetie xxx

So I thought I'd use her for this week's Papertake Weekly which is one of me sketches :)

She is from a set called Hey Cupid, as is the sentiment, from CC Designs which are availabe over at Dies To Die For and you can see the rest of the set here.

The stripey paper is PP and the heart paper is a scrap I found in my 12 x 12 box which I am so trying to start using - I thought it went nicely with the image. Sod's law that the piece left had no name on so I don't know makes it, sorry chicks xxxx It was just plain hearts but I went over each heart with a glue pen and added a bit of Glamour Dust

You can see the glittery hearts a bit better here.
The silver card candy is from Craftwork Cards.

Ooops, I forgot to say that I coloured her in with PMs.
You won't be surprised that a) I forgot, or b) that I'd used PMs :)))x

Well I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday. Ours was quiet as 2 of the tribe were missing, one of which happens to be the noisiest one of the tribe!!!
Our meal out was really nice, however we could hardly hear ourselves think as there was a group of 8 people in the restaurant, one of which was a lady with the loudest cackley laugh I've ever heard. Honest to God, it literally ricocheted off the walls.

Now I'm not a snob, nor am I the party pooper, but ......... I could have throttled her!!


My two are back and I'm ever so glad. They got back quite late and were very tired, but they had a great time and Emma said she would definately go back again. The highlight for her was going quad biking in the desert. They went out at 4pm and came back following the sunset. She said it was really spectaculor to see. They stopped at a 'genuine' Bedouin tent which had a bit of a gap in it, through which they could see a brand new shiny car lol xxx Perhaps the camels were having a day off !!


Miss Kyla has had me in stitches today by doing her impression of a belly dancer!! She even raided her dressing up box at one point for greater effect (!!!) and tried to put some music on from one of her toys to dance to. Sadly the batteries had gone, so we all ended up 'singing' Hava Nagila while she danced - well it was the only exotic thing I could think of lol xxx


Talking of exotic, my hot choc awaits - Options natch, but I do not know where the diet has gone to, thanks to Mr Marks and Mr Spencer plus our Mother's day meal. So I am off to waddle in a weeble-like fashion up the stairs to bed cos I am soo tired. I don't do late nights like I used to (old trout-itus no doubt!!) and I even fell asleep tonight during the second Corrie, which is why I am a bit later posting this!!!


Hopefully see you tomorrow, and have a fab night xxxxxxx

I can't abide attention-seeking hooligans - whatever age they are!!! I hope you rolled your eyes at them good and proper!! lol

This is a great card Dawn, the colours are so soft and feminine. I don't what this card candy stuff is though must go and check it out.

By the way, don't know if you're interested but I'm hosting an SU! evening on 21st April. Would love you to come along - bring some pals if you like, the more the merrier!! I have become so hooked on SU (esp the papers and ribbons) since I won some bits in a prize a couple of months back. Now I need to stock up!

Hugs,
Caryn xxx
