Firstly I apologise as it's been so long since my last post, I have had some major computer and internet problems over the last few months so haven't really been able to stay online for longer than a few minutes at a time. It's been a bit of a nightmare lol.
The computer problems are really my fault as I become very engrossed in this years Big Brother and started watching the live feed on the internet, but I watched it for so long I over heated the computer and it died - whoops :(
Then when we finally got a new computer then my internet moderm decided to died. So really I haven't had much luck with technology in the last few months.
On the bright side we went on a lovely holiday to Cape Cod in the US in October and I have had a lot more time to scrap without playing on the internet all day lol.
I've also had two scrapbook layouts published in 'The Scrapbook Magazine' recently which was great.
Anyway that's all for now expect a long post soon with lots of holiday and scrapbook photos. (As at the moment for some reason it will not let me add photos)

Here's how to play along:-
Then in the last week of May my sister had leave from work so we had a lovely few days together. On Wednesday we went to London to see this:-
I enjoyed it but didn't think it moved the story on at all. I really love Aidan though......
We had a lovely, relaxing time and took some great photo's the only problem was it rained at least once a day so my hair looks crazy in every photo lol. So here are some scenery one's instead (don't want to scare people lol)
Thanks for stopping by, I'm going to try to update every day from now on, but we will see how long that lasts lol ;)

We LOVE our chipboard here at The Sampler! And this month's kit is no exception! We packed April's kit with some great Maya Road chipboard pieces! Now, the fun and sometimes difficult part; using it. This month we challenge everyone to use some of their chipboard on a layout! Adorned or not, we want to see that chipboard on your layouts!
Please post a link to you entries in the comment section here on or before May 12th, 2010! Happy Crafting!
Here is my example:-
We just brought a Wii fit board and I love it, I really love my Husband's and my Mii characters too. They are just so cute. xxx
