I've had a lot going on lately, all bad unfortunately, so I haven't been blogging or crafting.

But I couldn't let this pass as its HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ARTY GIRLZ - one year of fabulous inspirational crafts - how quickly the time goes. Thanks to my great cyber friends Julie and Crissi for their wonderful challenge blog.

The theme is Birthday and I've done a birthday book - to try and make sure I don't forget any of those important dates.

All materials used were from my Stampin Up stash, apart from the little stickers on the ribbons on the side to denote the months.

What a lovely idea to celebrate the birthday in this way. I need one of these birthday books -I am remembering dates by the skin of my teeth recently.

Love It! I'm still looking for the right cards! I still may have you do a reading, when I get enough time.

Just to let you know that we just heard that Luke got cast as the boy in Britten's "Peter Grimes" at the Grand Theatre in Geneva for the Spring. I can't believe they really picked him and we are both really excited!!!! e are in full panto swing -week three of the rehearsals and the music is in the can and all but one of the dances blocked. But better than that because I'm now singing regularly again my top E is back -yippee. Now all I need is an extra semi-tone -in my dreams LOL
Thinking of you often,

Lovely birthday book.

SammieJay said...

Thanks. Can't believe it for Luke -I fear there will be no stopping his desire now.... We are doing Aladdin and it has an awful lot of "formaggio" bits as we call it in the family, but it is a hoot to do all that really cheesy stuff for a change. Keep thinking of you and the QoN -I'm just horribly jealous! Hope when the blocking comes it won't rock the music for you.
Much love,
