My friends

I know, I know it is Saturday and I am supposed to have produced some lovely scrap pages for you to look at. Sorry guys, it is just not happening, my life seems to be spiralling out of control, leaving my scrapbooking evaporating in the sidelines. There just seems to be so much going on at the moment, that I am struggling to find time to scrap - how I ever had time to work I really don't know. I think it is where the school term is coming to an end, there seems to be many things that need to be completed before the kids break up, so I am running around like headless chicken. I do feel like I have over committed myself this year, which has resulted in me not achieving what I had set out to do at the beginning of the year. I aim to make a lot of changes before the new school year starts, so that my focus is back where it is supposed to be and wear blinkers and ear plugs to avoid taking on any extra activities. Famous last words, eh!

Anyway, my nearest attempt at scrapbooking this week is making this little chocolate bar holder for my friend Yvette. Another lovely friend of mine, Fiona, gave me a template to make this holder as well as copies of the little owls. So I made this for Yvette and put her favourite chocolate in there - Wholenut Dairy Milk, as well as a Waterstones voucher for books. I am really pleased with my first attempt at this holder.
On Tuesday, Yvette and I went out to lunch to celebrate her birthday. We went to my favourite cafe down by the beach, where I often go for breakfast. I had my favourite, smoke salmon sandwiches -yum, yum. We followed lunch with a very delicious and very fattening Raspberry Cheesecake, which we shared. I don't even want to think how many calories were in it.
Talking about my lovely friends, I am now going to really big up my friend Anne, who is officially famous now. If you are a scrapper, you may subscribe to Scrapbook Inspirations, one of the very few magazines available. Well my friend Anne features in the July edition.

Her wonderful blog called Pretty, which you can find here, is featured in the Blog Love section. The magazine love her blog and so do I. Do go over and have a look for yourself.
Well done Anne!
Well that is it for today, hope your having a fabulous weekend and catch you tomorrow for Sunday Salon.
