holiday fun

Holidays are halfway done...we went bowling the other day...the rest of the days so far have been relaxing at home...letting the kids play with their stuff...& they have plenty of stuff to play with & do at home!!

Last night i got some me time & went scrapping at inspired crafts....i love going there & get lots done...not to mention having the whole shop to browse in!!
I got 2 new embossing folders .....cant wait to use them!!

I left miss pink cricut at home & just took my pink cuttlebug with me.....i had cut most of what i needed for my was so much easier to think ahead!!

I did several challenges for different blogs last night...

here is one i did for Whimsical Wednesday "interactive" challenge which you can find here

I have had this layout in mind for so long....but kept forgetting to cut out the svg i needed....I cant remember where i got the svg from ...quite possibly the craft edge forum if you want to cut one out yourself....its a viewfinder wheel!!
My mum has had negative strips from her wedding & asked me to see if i could somehow make them bigger....i copied them as is first so that i have a copy & thought they would look great in the view spins!!

i will post the other pages i did later today.....
