Hello peeps!!

I've had a lovely couple of hours crafting away while Scott and Mo have some Daddy and me time and I wanted to tell you all about it so here I am!! he he!

So last week whilst looking for local stampin up people I was uber lucky to find Mandy who lives in my village!! whoot whoot!!! and if that wasn't exciting enough ( ..yup, ya'll know me!! actual tena lady squeel moment but hey who can blame a gal for getting excited about craft stuff right?!!!) and she knows my mum and dad too so I so should of found her before now!!!

So, I cleaned Mandy out of stampin up dimensionals for making some spinning cards and Mo and I grabbed a catalogue too (when in Rome and all that!! ...doesn't take much to lead us astray on crafty stuffs!!!) and Mandy mentioned that she does a couple of clubs. Well, Mo's eyes lit up and his ears pricked out and he was on it! so on tuesday we went and did our first ever coffee and card. It was wonderful and Mo was so brave. He swapped his coffee out for a choccy milkshake and loved making his card.

In true stalker Lou fashion I found Mandy on facebook, and this morning up went a super fun little notebook tutorial. It was so cute I just had to get all the pieces cut out and ready to go while Scott walked poppy and dasher so that when I had walked Tyson afterwards I could get down to crafty fun!!!

Here's the inside!! Soooo cute!!! I popped some little scraps of dimensionals on the back of some of the die cut shapes from the collection kit so Mo can stick them onto something (....probably his wall or door!!!!) into the little pocket and a couple of the stickers just to Lou froo it up.

And even better, I learnt some cool new tips from Mandy's tutorial like stretching the paper a bit for pockets and keeping them open and......well, you'll just have to go to her tutorial for more cool gems of information won't you!! he he!!!
