"My fav way to spend my bday is by sleeping in, then going to breakfast, then taking a ride with my dh on the back of his Harley, then maybe going somewhere fun, hmmmmmm how about the Grand Canyon, taking a little helicopter ride over, then zipping over to Niagra Falls to catch a view of some lovely water, then of course out to dinner someplace really scenic and lovely, have a wee little party with lots of friends and family and chocolate rapsberry cake and then a nice little ride home. :)Realistically it's getting to sleep in an hour or 2 past my normal 5 AM get up time, and some chocolate cake. Maybe a bike ride with dh too. :) he he A girl can dream, can't she? ;)"
This one really appealed to me as I've always wanted to visit both the grand canyon and niagra falls. The fact that it is unlikely for anyone to enjoy all of this in one birthday doesn't matter to me, I just love the idea of it and I have to say that chocolate raspberry cake sounds pretty yummy too!
So Pamala, please get in touch so I can get the mini book parcelled up and on its way to you.
Because I am feeling generous today I also have an early birthday RAK for dddeeebbbzzz who is going to Disney (I've always wanted a Disney birthday!)

Today I have a mini book up for grabs. All you have to do to win it is to leave a comment on this post telling me about your favourite way to spend your birthday. I'll pick one comment and send you this mini book along with a few matching embellies so you can decorate it and fill it up with whatever takes your fancy.
If you'd like a better look at the prize then just click on the corners of the book on the widget below and drag to turn the pages (fingers crossed it works, its the first time I've tried this one)

Doesn't that stash look yummy? It could be yours if you head on over to the CTYD blog and enter the challenge I've posted on there. The challenge is to create something predominantly pink. It's worth entering just for those beautiful american crafts ribbons, so what are you waiting for?

If you haven't got involved in the fun and freebies yet then check this out. Some of the past few days prizes are still up for grabs and there will be something else on offer every day for 40 days. I have to say the stars and stripes stash sounds particularly yummy! Aren't birthdays great?
And just in case you came here to see what I've been up to here's a quick card. I used the twinchie I made a while ago as a topper. Think I'll be making a few more twinchies and stashing them as toppers for speedy emergency cards when I forget peoples birthdays, which is most of the time. (Not sure why the "just for you" stamp looks kind of blurry its not like that really - honest!)

Ruth (who has some stash up for grabs)

Guv (aka Beverley, lol)
As if being given an award wasn't enough, I stopped on my way home to see if my local craft shop had anything new. They've got the new core'dinations cardstock which I've been lusting after for ages so obviously I had to have a couple of sheets (or 12). A few other bits fell into my basket too (I had a £5 loyalty card to use towards it so went a bit mad). The owls and leaves at the bottom are papermania acetate sheets which I thought looked fun! (oops just realised they're upside down doh!)
Oh, and my first DT kit was waiting for me when I got home and its so scrummy!! All in all a pretty good day!

I have been awol for the last week or so because my dodgy knee has decided to play up again. I can't drive so I have been stuck at my mum's for the past week. She kindly took me to pick up the rats and my craft stuff though so I have been able to do a bit of scrapping.
My mum can always find a job for me, even if I can't stand up. I have just spent one and a half days re-hanging all the droplets on a chandelier. If you love beautiful antiques then have a look here, that is where my mum works - lucky lady!

Then today I was playing with my cuttlebug embossing folders and dies and ended up making a thankyou card and guess what colour I used?

Horses on the Balcon de Europa in Nerja. I loved all the mountains everywhere, we even saw snow on the tops of the Sierra Nevada
We went to the Cuevas de Nerja which were amazing, unfortunately the photo doesn't really do them justice. I just need to get myself sorted and then I'll be scrapping like a mad thing!

Aujourd hui, dans ma maison il y a un papillon. Okay so my french is not too great but I am really liking this little house. My Crafty Individuals stamps arrived yesterday so obviously I had to make use of one on here. Also used my neglected alcohol inks and a bit of aluminium foil. The lovely people as CI put me some freebies in, not just the one advertised in the shop but a whole 5 free stamps (ok I did spend rather more than I had intended but all the stamps were so yummy)
I also did my first UKS weekly challenge of 2008. The challenge was to use a sketch, stamp, use ribbon and doodle. I managed to do all of them and am quite happy with how it turned out, another page for my mums scrapbook lol!
And just because I felt so guilty about you all thinking I had a beautiful scrap room I thought I'd better put the record straight. It is not a scraproom, that is my house, I live in a studio flat! And it usually looks more like this...
