2011 already howd that happen??

Seriously, how did 2011 sneak up on me? one minute I was getting organised for Christmas the next it was Alfie's birthday and now New Year!!

The kids had a really lovely Christmas day, Alfie didn't really know what was going on but he had a fab time with the wrapping paper and empty boxes :o)

With today being the 1st of the month it is a new challenge over at Penny Black at Allsorts and this month I am being a guest designer :o) The theme is "All you need is love" As I was so busy making notebooks for all of Lily's friends she pipes up on Christmas Eve......mummy are you making one for me for Christmas? I have no idea why not but it didn't even occur to me to make one for her lol So I knocked this up on christmas eve, the image is Penny Black "Gone Shopping", paper is a scrap, I used the cuttlebug to cut the photo corners and the ribbon slider. pearls etc all from stash.

I do hope you will stop by and join in this month, there are six fabulous stamps up for grabs this month and a date for your diary......on the 15th of January there will be a blog hop, it is certainly going to be a good one :o)

Morning Amanda

I think 2011 crept up on all of us.

With all those bank holidays the holiday period seems to have gone on forever and I have totally lost all grip on reality let alone know what day it is.

Thanks for being our Guest Desinger at Penny Black @ Allsorts this month and for making such a gorgeous notebook.

Happy New Year
