Legoland Fireworks.

We spent Saturday 6th November with Justin's dad and step mum in Legoland in Windsor. We had a great time. Here are some fireworks from later in the evening, some photos of the day, and a couple of photos of Matthew with sparklers from the night before at home.
At the bottom of the post is a couple of photos from the last time that I saw my friend Jacqui, on Monday, she left for Australia on Tuesday to live... sniff. We're about to have a video call on Skype! Woohoooo.

The photo above is of a poor Polar Bear... it did look like the other one on the left... but Jacqui picked it up and it's head fell off!!!

Below Jacqui and Justin are having a twirl around the carpark at Justin's workplace.

A post for Dawn, lol. Here are my cakes!!! Justin LOVED them until he found out that the icing/frosting was made using Philadelphia cream cheese, lol. You can't taste the cheese, and I prefer this to normal butter icing, it doesn't seem as sweet even though a ton of icing sugar was used. 
I later heard Sprinkles hitting the kitchen floor, so I got up to investigate and there was Justin with a whole cake in his mouth hoping I wouldn't know!

The top cakes are decorated by Matthew, he loves the orange and lemon slices, and sprinkles. Now, if Justin had sneaked one of the cakes from the second picture, I would have been none the wiser!

 The cakes below are topped with melted white chocolate.

Charisma Card Challenge.

Charisma Card Challenge this week fits in nicely with card I've made for Justin. This is my second attempt at using the side step fold, and I must admit, I'm going to make more because I love the effect. 
So, the challenge is to make a card "with love @ Christmas", and as this card is made for the love of my life, my other half, then I thought it would ok to enter.
I used my Forever Friends 3D elements stickers, Forever Friends papers, and Penny Black stamps along with some freebie stamps from a magazine. Coloured with ProMarkers, and glittered with Stickles Stardust.

ABC Challenge card, and I love ProMarkers challenge!

Here is my entry for this weeks ABC challenge
Have a look at the blog and enter a card as well. The theme is "G is for GLITTER"!! People who know me will know that if it's not got glitter on it, then I didn't make it! Although I must admit, I'm having trouble seeing the glitter from this photo, lol, but believe me, it is there!! It's on the snowman and penguin's hats, I've added Stickles Stardust to the text as well, and it's also on the backing papers.
Also the challenge over at I love ProMarkers is to use snowflakes!! I have 3 silver Cricut E snowflakes, and snowflakes on some of the backing papers, and also not forgetting all the snowflakes that would have had to have fallen to make the snowman!! :-) LOL! 
So, if you own some ProMarker pens, head on over there to enter your own snowflake card.

This is my first attempt at a side step card, and I really enjoyed making it. I used some decoupage sheets from DoCrafts Christmas range 2010, and the text stamps that came inside the September/October goody bag also from DoCrafts. The snowflakes were cut using the Cricut Expressions.

A few Halloween Pics.

There would have been more but the camera battery conked out after taking 3 photos outside! 
We took Matthew out trick or treating with his friend, Arick.
We only went out in our street, and two others, and we only go to houses that are decorated as well. They both had fun anyway, and came back with lots of sweets, then I felt sick.

A ceramic pumpkin. (Matthew still calls them Punkings)

All the sweets he had and came back with.

 I thought this window was really good, and the woman inside gave them a mix of all kinds of sweets in a little bag.
