What a disgrace!

I hardly dare show my face in here *blushes* after all this time! How do the months go by so fast? I have to say that I have still been crafting but life has been so busy and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to keep up with blogging. I shall try my very best though to get back into it and not be so lapse in the future!

So what have I been up to in all that time! We have had a couple of winter holidays to Cyprus and Egypt! Both were absolutely lovely and of course there was Christmas.

Then on Saturday I went to Harrogate with my lovely parents (Mau and Den) to the GNPE craftfair. What a righteous day we had and I am so dying to use my new goodies.

Talking of my mum, she has made me very proud by being asked onto the DT for Moving Along With The Times ! So I decided to get back to this blogging lark and join in the challenge over there. It is a lovely blog and their new team have really done them proud this week with their cards I think. Why not pop over and have a look!

This is the project that I am entering into this weeks challenge. It is a 'box of scriptures' made it for my MIL's 71st Birthday because I knew she would love it as she really loves her scriptures. I had seen one on another blog and I apologise as I can't remember whose it was, so I decided to make my own. It took me ages to find the eighty or so scriptures but I have to say that they really lifted my spirits with their promises of God's love and forgiveness. She was overwhelmed when I gave it to her which was very moving.

I am entering this into the  MAWTT 'Special lady' challenge as that is certainly what my MIL is!
