Half term is here!!!

I would normally say "Hooray"!! but as I am heading towards my last half term in work, impending unemployment has it's worries. With a bit of luck I'll get a job soon after Easter and not have too long out of work.

As Hannah is home we had a treat today as I took her out shopping for her birthday, thank God none of my kids have ever been bothered about designer gear, so a trip to Matalan and TK Maxx resulted in carrier bags full of stuff for her, including 2 handbags, a colouring book and pens(!!), tights, a dress and even a few sweeties.
This page was made at the Exhall Christmas crop based (very loosely!) on a design by Ifa Zainon who taught the class. It uses papers from the Dear Lizzy Christmas range, and just goes to show that Christmas papers have a multitude of uses! I made the title by spritzing some Glimmer mist onto a craft mat, and then using it to load up my Tim Holtz vintage alphabet and then stamp. Even though the alpha is big and bold I like the way using the misters as ink gives a more muted image. I then cut these out, and finished the title by stitching it.
OK, off to use some stash bought on my shopping trip.... Oh, didn't I say I had called in at The Range as well....?!

ROFL - how could you miss a little detail like calling in at the Range?
Love the LO and it sounds like you had a good day out with Hannah.
Hugs xx
p.s. do offspring come back from Uni? Haven't seen ours since 28th Dec!
