Easter Holidays

We went away to London for a couple of days on Easter Sunday which was a fantastic break. We walked for miles and miles each day with our feet really suffering at night but all good fun! Lewis had an absolute ball and didn't want to leave, neither did we. Now we are back home it seems like such a distant memory, especially I'm now in the throes of having to write an assignment for my uni course which needs to be handed in next Friday at the latest. The plan was not to spend more than a few days doing it so that I could enjoy the rest of my holiday but somehow I don't think that that is how it is going to pan out. :o( I spend the whole of yesterday on it and didn't make very good progress unfortunately so today I pretty much won't be stopping either.

I think most of Saturday and Sunday will be taken up too minus taking Lewis to a birthday on both days. No rest for the wicked and no crafting for me! I was really looking forward to playing with some of the goodies that I got for my birthday, but maybe next week if I get this assignment done.

I'm posting a card today that I made last weekend before going to a friend's house for dinner last Saturday night. I just love making easel cards, they are so easy to make and look really effective. I made another two but will post them later.

Stamp:Magnolia Easter collection
Paper:Papermania Retro Floral pack
Punches:retro flower punches, SU scallop oval punch, MS doily lace punch

I also made some bags to put small Easter eggs from M & S in to take with us to our friend's house which they loved. I'd made them before but I was more successful with them this time as I had most of the tools to make them this time. They are called Bag in a box and are so easy to make. I made six of them really quickly although ran out of time to embellish them.

Well, I'm off to get Lewis organised to go to the cinema with his best friend Paul who is 4 today and then it is a long day of work for me! Wish me luck!

Be back tomorrow hopefully!
