12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 (already)


uuummmm running out of white cardstock...nevermind - work with what you've got - that's my motto (unitl your next order arrives).


Today's challenge was based on

a christmas song/carol...I love the Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is You"

So here's a quick simple LO of my 3 precious treasures.

I did a bit of doodling around the edge & quite happy with how my holly & berries turned out...I obviously haven't run out of kindyglitz yet...man, I LOVE that stuff...gotta get round to doing my Elsie challenge 8, set by JulieH over at embellished - but I want to use some of my Nov kit for that...on the to-do list :o)

I tell you these challenges are seriously occupying my mind (well at least that's the only excuse I can come up with for today's mishap)...

Raven has swimming lessons on Wednesday...and so I rush to get him all ready & in the car...running late (or so I think) - get to the pool, whip his clothes off & into a little swimmer, strip down to my swimmers (cos I have to get in with him) quickly make my way to the pool thinking I am 10 mins late...I look at the pool & see 2 girls having a lesson - I'm thinking "there's something wrong with this picture" walk over to the teacher & apologize for my lateness...meanwhile, Raven proceeds to climb into her arms & get himself in the pool...she gets me to check her class sheet and i'm not 10 minutes late.....I'M AN HOUR & 10 MINUTES LATE!!!!

Here I am thinking I have to be there by 10.45...and the class was at 9.45.....but here's where the confusion lies....Taiga's Friday clasis at 10.45 - still, what a freak aye!!! So anyhoo Ravey's in the pool all wet by now, so I figure we'll make the most of it & I ask her if its OK if we have a little play around in one of the spare lanes - sweet as - we're all happy.

The crazy thing is - I'm not that embarrassed, heck I didn't even blush - I'm actually getting used to the dumb things I do - how scarey is that!!!

Gorgeous Kelly, both the layouts and the being an hour and 10 minutes late for swimming class and not being embarrassed ... you're a worry.
