Amy Heller Inspired Challenge 13

This was taken on my birthday , 44 yrs young and still cant quite believe it .x
This page reflects the passing of time x

Shimelles 11th Challenge with 2 papers!

Ive wanted to scrap this picture of my late father for while but I find it difficult
 to do as I still miss him so much.
This was taken in happier times at our Daughter Rubys christening 
and its not a fab picture really but I was inspired by the bright colours of the flowers
 and when I found these green backing papers I thought it would be just right.
 So Shimelles Challenge 11 with two papers with one a third of the page ... check x
I am pleased with the results.. hope you like it to.

Shimelles Craft weekend Challenge 10

 was to use two pics and a bold paper
 so I used this funny picture of Ruby...Doing here GOK WHO !! impression. 

I used a bold red and white stripe to compliment the red of her strippy dress then used elements of black and a little hint of green to bring it all together . Really enjoeyed this. ( sorry its sideways tried everything to rotate it , loosing the will now!!)

10 things on the tenth!

1, Ok so we have a very random list of things am grateful for
and have been doing to a list of things Im also looking forward to.
The above layout is very precious to me as it has taken me
8 years to do it.
This was the day me children met thier new sister for the first time.
Little Daneas face it a true treasure.Priceless as they say.
2, Oh so naughty my husband indulged my love of Baileys , not good for my diet, weight loss
currently at 3 stone so this will be eaten in very small quantities , probably a treat from working
hard at the gym !!!

3, My princess Sienna is due her babies on saturday and is very tired now and
we are very excited to see the little furbabies .
They will be british shorthaired chocolate torties very nice.....

4, Next is Chiang our Siamese , hes been poorly lately but I am glad
to say he is finally on the mend and looks well.
Hes a real character and we dont know what we would do without him.

5, Dare I say STEPS are my guilty pleasure and I am very much looking forward to going on the 26th April with my friend for her birthday.
Not before I have indulged this passion in the gay village Manchester this weekend with my daughter, who is home from uni.!!!!! yay !!!!!!
So excited and yes I know the steps,(pardon the pun ) and the words .!!!!lol.

6, My littlest child Ruby was very pleased with her chooccie stash and I was even more pleased with the scrapbooking opportunity although Ruby is known to strike a pose when the camera comes out !!!
7, Cake seems to have featured very highly this weekend .
I am trying to master this cupcake thing and have started using the Docrafts Bake site for inspiration. Do you think its working?

8, The girls were very creative this weekend and made an Easter Egg tree,
very nice.. the cats loved the pipe cleaners too !!!

9, this layout is dedicated to my daughters who have a very special bond as the eldest and youngest.
I am very excited as Robyn (eldest) is home on thursday for a visit from uni.
She is my best friend and I miss her deadfully so we will have great fun catching up
and she keeps my young taking me to clubs and pubs in Manchester,
its cool she thinks I dont show her up, guess I better keep the Steps moves under wraps.!!

10, All that remains is to say , this is me , 3 stone lighter
and wishing you all a Happy Easter season
and for those of you who gave up chocolate for lent....
ENJOY !!!!!!1

Whats new in the Perham household...wellll!!!!!

Happy Easter
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter Break
We have been very busy being creative and having fun.
The girl got set to making treats and fun things with
a little easter craft kit , and even made a wonderful
Easter Egg tree!!

Traditionally today the easter bunny made a suprise appearance
(very timely as he was trying to hide the eggs in the garden,
not too easy with little spies around.)
The girls quickly set to and managed to make a clean swoop
and have promised to share with their big sister and
brother when they get home.
As you can see Ruby was very pleased with her stash!

Felicity and Ruby had a fantastic weekend and I adore
watching them as they are growing up so fast it seems.
They have a love hate thing going on at the moment but Im
sure it will be short lived and they will grow to be extremely close.

So what else was their for me to do but bake !!!
Yummy Easter cupcakes.

All in all a lovely bank holiday weekend and with more
joys yrt to come.
Tomorrow we are going to venture a family bike ride in the park
which should be very entertaining for the poor rider behind me !!!
I havent riden a bike for such a long time so we will put the addage
to the test ...
its like riding a bike !!!!!
Heres hoping. !!
