Go go go Joseph

Carys is in the choir for Joseph at our local theatre. It stars "H from Steps". I find it quite amusing that he is always called "H from Steps" rather than "H" or "Ian" which is his actual name. Unless he has changed it by deedpoll to H FromSteps. Which would be quite fun. Joseph has kind of taken over our life in the last few weeks with extra long Stagecoach and other rehearsals and juggling college and performances this week. Which has also meant vistors as they all wanted to see Carys perform. And quite rightly too as she is a little star :)

Last week we spent time at my mother in law's house in Milford on Sea. She was there for some of the time and for the rest of it we looked after various animals and aunties. Carys and I travelled back to Torquay last Friday on the coach in order that Phil could stay another day and watch Bolton play Bournemouth. We had to come back due to said rehearsals and we did it by coach cos we love him and the train was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too expensive. We had a lovely few days visiting a couple of National Trust places and watching Thor 2 on the big screen (C and I share a bit of a pash on Loki. he is just misunderstood you know). The former will be appearing on scrap pages in due course

Crafting time has been a bit limited due to all of the above but I did manage a quick card for this weeks Daring challenge - other occasions
I say quick - but it was not as quick as it looks. Love the ombre Pink Paislee paper and decided to add to the effect with some new stamps from the same collection. This is the second attempt. Choosing the pearls took time as did tying the ribbon bow. And mounting the whole thing on tiny foam squares. Clean and simple is often neither I am beginning to discover.

I have managed a few layouts in between my adventures, ready to go up on the Quirky Kits site. To whet your appetite here are the layouts already featured using the scrummy latest kits

Back soon (ish!)
