Busy bees

Yup Carys and I managed some more crafting today!
She finished off a card she started on Saturday that we had decided to turn into a swing.
The background is done with a cuttlebug embossing folder. They are so much more defined in a real cuttlebug!
I finished a big layout and also a card for the Daring Little Extra tomorrow (may be Wednesday before I can talk about it here - busy day tomorrow) and a simple 8x8 layout for the craft club on Thursday that I couldn't get a good photo of at all tonight so will try again soon. Although it really isn't that great, just a good way of starting off scrapping.
Anyhoo, here is the 12x12 layout for today
I haven't got many Christmas photos after the family asked me not to take them :( but I did take them New Years Eve.
The paper is all Cherry Arte Poolside. I backed the whole sheet with some old Bazzill as it is rather flimsy. The lettering is Vomzom cut on my robo. 2008 is Scenic Route chipboard painted with a Ranger Dabber. The other chipboard shapes are Cherry Arte and the star is extra thick felt bought in Germany.
Grandma made it back ok today. She is very tired and strung out from supporting my sister in law through a shock breakdown of her marriage. The kids have enjoyed a last days holiday so we had a Movie Night watching Oceans Eleven which has so much eye candy as well as an enjoyable story. (its no contest really, I would choose Brad every time).
I'm not looking forward to going back to early starts tomorrow. But I am looking forward to my MA course which is back for a new term.
