More 365 LO's using Bad Girls Kit

Hello again.............isn't it cold!! Here are my 2 lastest LO's for my 365 album. I have used a new kit from the States that Steph recommened (thanks Steph!). However this months kit was vintage which I don't normally go for, however I am really pleased with the final pages! Check out bad girls kits - they are fab!
LO 46 - Diamonds are Forever
Theme this week was James Bond Movies and I have take a photo of my eternity ring as its the only diamonds I own!
LO 47 - Baby its Cold Outside We were told to scrap this day because of the weather change and how cold it has got! I have used the bad girls kit, plus the lace and chipboard 'cold' letters (crate paper) were from my stash. I do love the Heidi Swapp acetate butterflies (but then I do love butterflies!)
Thanks as always for looking and do leave a comment to say you dropped by Love Sarah xxx

A few cards

Just a few cards that have been made for some of Pete's work collegues - I had 2 orders to make a total of 16 cards and some of them personalised. I really enjoyed making them, and every card had a bit of bling on them!
Brother and Sister cards
Personalised cards - snowflakes cut on the expression

70th Birthday card which will be going all the way to Australia!

All my cards have stamped images from Magnolia, coloured in using promarkers and all the embossing is using my cuttlebug embossing folders.
Thanks as always for looking - now I better get on making the school xmas fair cards!

365 Day Challenge Retreat!

Thanks to this lovely lady who started a challenge on 1st January 2008 I met some really lovely ladies this weekend. Anna Louise Bowkiss started a free challenge here giving us a daily prompt for a photo and then from the week we did a weekly LO, some of which are already on my blog.

It was decided for a group of us to meet up in Oxford. I was excited about meeting everyone, nervous about meeting everyone and the drive to Oxford, but thanks to a trusty tom tom and a quick phone call to Shirley I found them no problem!Me and Steph
Shirley Me and Sal
I had a wonderful weekend, made lots of new friends, and laughed lots! I was inspired by Anna's class, everyones albums, Layouts and mini albums - I am so glad I went! I am hoping to go back to Oxford in February to meet up with them again! I would like to thanks Anna for being a fab roommate and Kay and Sal for all their hard work organising it all for us!

The 365 girls!

Until next year!!!

I've used Bazzill bling cardstock, Doodlebug PP, Buttons, Stamp from Catslife press , buttons from stash and title cut out on the Cricut Expression - Sketch taken from Pencil lines sketch 108

I am busy making christmas cards for the school fair, so my poor old scrapbooking is taking a back seat at the moment, but I want to keep up to date with my 365 challenge as I am meeting the girls from the UKS 365 challenge thread this weekend - and I am really looking forward to it! Wonder how much scrapbooking we will get done??
