Bad Blogger!

SSS20111 I know ... I know ... I have been really bad at blogging over the last few weeks!

It is not like I have been doing a great deal of anything else either ... Hey Ho! I am sorry ... I have no excuse whatsoever!

But I am here today ... oh yes ... the first day of November ... and blimey ... How did that happen? What happened to the rest of the year? I can't believe it will soon be Christmas and in only a few short weeks I shall be packing my stuff to go to Paris :0)SSS10111

Perhaps that is why my Shabby project for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show went all kind of Shabby and ... erm ... French :0) Ooh la la!

Do pop over and join us this week ... there is a scrumptious prize ... donated by our fabulous sponsor ... to be won and everything!

Not sure what I can tell you about this project that is n't already kind of glaringly obvious ... it is all Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can move mountains while talking to planets from other dimensions with just a pearl bauble and a jump ring!

SSS30111 I can tell you that that there Mona Stamp is indeed the very first Lord Tim of Holtz stamp that I ever bought! I can also tell you that I have managed to use one of my bottle tops from my bottle top mountain that is currently standing at 692.75 feet high!

That's me for today ... I have an early start with a visit to the No smoking nurse ... today is the day ... wish me luck!

Laters!
