Almost end of April

Hi everyone, can you believe it almost the end of April. We must be having fun.
Well i have been having fun playing with my Christmas present from Hubby (photoshop elements 9) i've been purchasing a fair bit from & also
There are some gorgeous kits out there and i'm slowly learning how to instal and use brushes and styles for my Lo's. Here are a couple of Digi LO's i did over the looooooong Easter weekend.
the first one

"Welcome to spring i used a freebie kit (NItwit Collections) from a CD that came with the Complete Cardmaking with your PC magazine. It has 4 0r 5 other kits and 25 free romantic fonts. Well worth the money.

The second one I've used papers and elements from different ranges purchased at Scrapgirls.

So now its back to the PSE( and play around with a few more LO's
Thanks for looking.
Oh and in the next couple of days i'll up load some pic's of the page's i've received for my CJ.

I have been reminded that i neglecting my blog. (Sorry Noriel) Just trying think what has happened since i last blogged.

First, this is not something i have forgotten, but my darling mum has been in and out of hospital with breast cancer. She had to have a mastectomy 2 weeks ago. I am in awe of her. She is 71 and when asked if she was ok with what was going to happen her response was "Shit happens"! She has to have hormone treatment only at this point as there are a few other little cancers that are lying dormant. She said she was glad to get home because she was putting weight on in the hospital. all the beautiful food and no exercise.

We also celebrated mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary the weekend before her op. We went to the Bombay Bicycle Club for tea. It was a great night out just family and we had a private room and we just chatted and laughed and enjoyed each others company.

I've done a bit of scrapping too. some for the monthly challenges and some for the CC challenges

so these are just a few of the Lo's i have done. Some Digi and some paper scrapping. I have also done this birdcage. I got the idea from the Magnolia Ink magazine. A lady by the name of Monique had done one (a lot prettier) using T!m Holtz's birdcage die and some of T!m's techniques. I used my own ideas on how to put it together but i must say i'm pretty happy with how its turned out.
