Oh no, not a teenager!!

Yes, it has finally happened my baby girl has become a teenager. She was officially 13 yesterday. This was celebrated with a sleepover for 8 giggly girls, who all came in fancy dress. All things considered it went well, they were still up watching videos and chatting at 12am, thankfully they didn't keep us awake but according to them didn't really settle until 3am. At 9 o'clock they were all awake, I wouldn't go as far as to say wide awake!! No one wanted breakfast, so they all headed outside, climbing trees and generally running around having fun, only to return very hungry at 10 and ready to eat.
I can't say that being thirteen will make much difference as my darling daughter has been displaying teenage behaviour for about a year now, she definitely has the DIVA in her sometimes. Oh joy only another 7 teen years to go.
Photos to follow soon

Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge 17

The colours for this challenge were, red, aqua, cream, chocolate and kraft. I used Hero Arts Antique flower back ground, stamping red on aqua and Cuttlebug Damask embossing folder on kraft for the base of the card. I used SU scallop border punch for the red scallops, the strip above is from SU Christmas paper. The sentiment stamp and scallop oval punch are from SU and the flowers are In Bloom by Paper Trey Ink.

My new favourite

I have found a new choc to share with you, this one is really scrummy, much better than Aero. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. My oldest Lauren, tells me I am suffering the same problem as her - OCD. Obsessive Chocolate Disorder!! I am sure I am not alone, there must be plenty more of you out there!! Let me know your favourites.

Getting ready for Christmas

Here are a few of this weeks creations. All of the paper and ribbon is Stampin Up. The layout is Lauren my oldest (now 21) posing in front of our tree, just wishing it were Christmas day and she could be opening all her pressies. She was very much an open one present, toss it to the side and open the next, kind of girl. So unlike Josh who would open his presents one at a time and then play with them, he could make Christmas last for days.

My new neighbours

Aren't they cute? They have taken up residency in our dam and make frequent trips around the garden, much to our delight. The parents are so protective especially when our dogs start barking at them. Don't worry the dogs are safely behind a fence and can't get to them!!
