I'm going to end this post with something sweet.  I made a 50th birthday cake for my Aunt this week and thought I would share some pics....

Thank you for visiting, hope to see you soon with some Christmas ideas. 
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

Sorry I haven't had much time to blog.  Trying to juggle working from home and the little one off school is proving to be quite a task, and to fit crafting in on top is near enough impossible.
Loving the hols though it's so lovely to have my special girl home.

I will be back next week with a thank you card and then I'm afraid yes Christmas will be starting.  I have loads of crafty ideas for Christmas just buzzing around my head, but unfortunately not much time to do them yet.  The little one loves to craft but unfortunately like most things it lasts about 5 minutes then she is on to the next thing lol! 

Hope your are all having a lovely Summer Holidays and see you again next week

Love Em x
