ITS A BOY !!!!

Hey everyone, ITS A BOY !!!!

He is gorgeous 7lb 6 and his name is Dylan. I couldnt believe it went into hospital wednesday morning to be induced as I was 12 days over due and my waters broke naturally as soon as i got there hahahaha talk about leaving it to the last minute. We were very lucky and the labour went smoothly I didnt get the water birth I wanted but we did get a natural drug free labour with no doctors intervening so we are really happy. When I have more time I will post up some piccies.

Having a Smashing Time !!!!

I treated myself to some smash books (I say some as I went a bit mad and brought quite a few hahahaha) this one is called the baby smash book and I thought it would be lovely to keep a little record of my pregnancy and then carry on once baby is here for all those first moments you dont want to forget. Dont think these pages are finished yet but thats the beauty of smash you can always go back and add more at a later date.

Just thought I'd share this picture with you from the weekend before last of me and the hubby at the beach so you can all see how big my bump is now !!!! not long left now, my due date is in 3 weeks and 2 days (10th Aug) ekkk !!!!! Im off to aquanatal soon so hopefully that should be fun and I'll meet some other mummys to be, some of the girls from antenatal are going so will be nice to catch up, talk soon xxxx

Some Ally Pally Pages

Hey everyone, had a fab weekend at Ally Pally and got to catch up with some lovely blogging friends Nicky, Julie, Tania as well as loads of other lovely ladies, thank you everyone who popped by to say hi and have a chin wag. It was lovely to see our friends Nina and Marion from Sugar and Spice, we always have a good laugh :) and was also lovely to also catch up with Lin and Leandra from Paperartsy.

I just thought I would share some art journal pages with you that I made while demoing over the weekend, they arent finished yet need to do some doodling and writing yet. These were all made using the gorgeous Dylusion Spray Inks, Stencils and Stamps aswell as a Dina Wakely stamp and Stampotique Stamp. The Dylusions were so popular over the weekend and we completely sold out of all of our spray inks and stencils, best get on with ordering more stock and sorting out the carnage !!!!!

Mothers Day Card

Still not found my camera battery however I did manage to find another camera, not the best quality photos but better than nothing !!!

I just thought I'd share with you my mothers day card that I have just made, I used distress ink for the background in Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Forest Moss. The gorgeous flowers and stems are all Octopode stamps, love these !!!! I coloured my images using inktense pencils. Sentiment was typed on the computer and for the doodling I used Sakura Souffle pens.
