wishing

I was still in Tenerife.. It has done nothing but rain since we came home.... Got up to sunshine this morning but within an hour it was raining again... Can't help thinking that if we had 2 weeks we would still be basking in the sunshine..

Tenerife..


Can't believe the week went so quick. Talk about relaxing. Have booked to go back next year..
Jim and the girls making the most of the pool. Our apartment was just behind me. Perfect spot..
We had everything we needed on site so didn't have to move unless we wanted to of course...

First thing done with my wonderful cricut expressions....


Still getting used to what papers etc cut best but so far love it .......

cricut

Desperate to get some scrapbooking done before going back to work I dragged out my robo only to find something was drastically wrong with it. Not cutting well at all and after several frustrating days contacted the makers and arranged to send it to them for them to check over... Lost without it.. But.... A really good friend from a card group... (some of you will know her well) Convinced me that the new cricut expressions was the business.. Egged on by several other cardmaking friends I convinced myself that I couldn't possibly live without this wonder machine and it just so happened.. (because I was meant to have it ) my local craft store had one in stock... yey!! So yesterday took a trip to local craft store JUST to have a look.. lol. And of course I couldn't leave it in the shop could I? It had my name on it...
Now this machine looked soooo complicated It took me a while to pluck up the courage to unpack it and put it together.. Needn't have worried. Piece of cake. Was plugged in and used in about 10 mins.. Different to my robo which took 2 days to master.... lol.
So have planned a stay at home day today just to play.....
