But the only thing wrong with this is, the girl she was going with had her mother come and collect Miss M from our home and to go from there.
But the childs mother collecting Miss M failed to come in to my home and introduce herself to me before taking my child from our home.
What kind of mother would take another mother's child without introducing herself first to the childs mother. Needless to say this all happened in a moment of seconds while I was on the telephone.
Regardless to say, Miss M got a phone call from this very distressed mother demanding she return home immediately.
When Miss M was dropped home, the mother who took her from my home, definately got what for for taking someone's child without at least letting the mother know she was leaving.
If I was to call the police what would I tell them: No surname known of child, no known address of child, unknown model of car driven, no first name of the childs mother who had taken Miss M, no description of the childs mother etc
How stupid are some people........ So, Miss M is not allowed out of my sight again for quite a long time to come!!!!!!!

As the guests arrived I was surprised how many of them I knew prior to knowing Shandell.
There was my previous mentor (from way back in the day when I did Tupperware) and long time friend Joy and her lovely friend Pamela. Cassie whom I have know now for some 5 years and her friend Donna and her mother Joan. Shandell's best friend Kathy and her little bubby Mitchell (wow, what a heart breaker he will be in the years to come) and Shandell's lovely MIL Dianne.
I am sure everyone had a fun, entertaining time. My workshop was only supposed to be 2 hours long, but, I was there of approx. 5 hours. There were some little incidents that 1 can only giggle at. Poor Shandell, I hope the ink stains come out of your beautiful kitchen bench.
I hope eveyone had fun making a little something different for christmas gift cards.

My DD went missing for over 1 hour after school (in her school uniform too). She went for a blood test and was feeling a little nauseous so she wanted to sit in the car and chill out. So thinking I could trust her I went with my mum and DS to buy a Wii & Wii Fit for the extended families. Going back to the car DD said she was fine and would look after DS while I quickly ducked up again to the supermarket to buy a hot chook for tea. When I got back to the car DD was missing. DS said she had a friend meet her at the car and that they went up into the shopping centre. I was so mad, as she wasn't supposed to leave the car let alone leave DS alone. I am so thankful that I only gone 5 minutes but DD managed to escape. I called her mobile and it went straight to voice mail. So, she knew that what she had done was so wrong.
I drove around looking for her and searched the shopping centre too, I had her called over the intercom too. Eventually her friend called me and asked if DD was with me and NO she wasn't her friend called in her mum who happens to work in the shopping centre. The mum then phoned me and said that DD was with her.
I tell you I was so cranky by now that it took DD an hour to call me and let me know that she was okay. When DD and the mum met me back in the car park DD was crying and so she should have I was so ready to kick her bum all the way home.
DD said she had to make an important phone call and had no reception on her mobile phone and had to go up into the shopping centre to get reception. But, DD didn't think that excuse through as I had reception because I got her phone calls. I got 4 different versions of the reason why she got out of the car and the only 1 I believe is DS's.
Boy isn't DD not happy with me as when she got home everything that she holds dear was withheld from her for 1 month.
before going to be she tried to negotiate her punishment down to 15 days and "she had learnt her lesson".
I went through her school bag Tuesday morning before school started and found: 1 curling iron, 2 lip gloss', 1 mascara, 1 eyelash curler, 1 foundation cover-up stick.
I caught her last night trying to steal back some of the confiscated items from me plus she had been into my room going through the hidden stash. DD has popped her eyelash curler into her bra but silly girl didn't hide it too well as I could see it. Obvioulsy she has learnt her lesson NOT!!!!
This morning she went to school with no make-up on and she come home with make-up on. I can see that she still hasn't learnt anything by being punished.
I am at my wits end with this child. Bring back smacking - it never hurt me to learn my lesson that way, as I remembered what a good smack felt like and I didn't dare disobey my mum.

I was so nervous I thought I would wet myself.
After 3 hours at my hostess' home I headed off home and almost cried all the way.
Oh well, the say "Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and try, try again" so I am doing just that.
I am placing my first order next week and my wonderful friends have or are placing orders with me. I can't wait to share the excitment and my goodies with them, we will play with all of them as soon as they come.
Until next time chill out.

Thank you all for coming.
My friends used my stash of stamps etc and they had fun making these cards (I hope). Yes, I am addicted to Stampin’ Up at the moment, so much so that I have become a demonstrator.
Have a great week ;-)

Why???????? (I hear you ask)
The truth of the matter is some time back I was at a fundraiser and purchased a few tickets in this bottle stall - (you know the one where you pay say $5 and get say 10 tickets and the matching tickets are attached to 10 different bottles)
Well, I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to end up with 4 lovely funny stamps from believe it or not from the VERY PUNNY Stampin Up stamp set, but, I have since found out that those stamps are from a set of 8 and no longer available from Stampin Up :-(
I have been on the internet and searched EBAY consistantly but to no avail (well that technically isn' completely true there are 2 available in USA but postage and the exchane rate would kill me)
So, if you know anyone who has a VERY PUNNY Stampin Up stamp set & would like to perhaps sell it to me I would be most greatful.
I know I hear you again what would I do with the 4 I already have if by some miracle someone out there is willing to part with theirs, well, I would donate those 4 that I do currently have to my local scrap club which meets every 4th Sunday (it is a non profit club)
Below I have a picture of the stamp set which I copied from the internet.
If you can help me please email me.
Many Thank You's

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,
When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)
When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click,
And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,

She was a lung and bowel cancer sufferer, but complications after her surgery last week, unfortunately, forced family members to make the decision to turn off her life support machine last night.
She is the first of my mum's family to pass away out of her 10 living members (mum's eldest brother died when he was 8 years old from a sandcastle cave in - many many years before many of my mum's sibling were born - my mum is the 7th child of the 11 born to my grandparents)

Good morning stampers! I am very happy to be bringing you another 3 entries today! Yay! At this rate we may even beat the entry record (31)! Here are entries 19, 20, and 21.
First we have this great find-a-word card by Chloe Nielsen: Chloe used her alphabet stamps to create the find-a-word background! She has used Heidi Grace papers, vellum, Kaisercraft rhinestones and Sparkle Mod Podge for extra bling!
Next we have this robot-tastic birthday card by Suzanne McQuade:
Suzanne used her alphabet stamps to write the sentiment of the front of her card. She has also used bazzill cardstock, Darkroom Door robot collection Photochip, and felt and scraps to complete her card.
And last but not least we have this great masculine birthday card card from Helen Ross: Helen used her alphabet stamps to create the background of her card. She has also stamped the "Happy Birthday Mate" stamp and embossed it with gold embossing powder.
Great work ladies!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone, and don't forget to get inky! :)

My DH, DD & DS eventually got me a nice new fan, but not just a average fan but a stainless steel bladed fan (#1 setting can almost blow you over if you are standing too close). I LOVE IT! (of course I do I picked it, as usual). My wonderful mum gave me a set of bath sheets in Navy, it covers a multitude a stains that the kids make - my kids use bath towels to clean up paint spills etc instead of paper towels.
My scrapping girlfriends came over for our usual scrapping night and I was surprised that I was the only 1 in PJ's.
I absolutely love the glass balls that Katie gave me, you are just too naughty.
My beautiful friend Sandra gave me a lovely quote book, GJ coffee voucher and a SUPER bubble wand (yes the kids variety, because she knew that I would go nutty over it) I used it on Saturday morning and drove the next door neighbours kids crazy chasing the bubbles as they went over the fence into their yard. I love IT!!!
OOPS I almost forgot to mention the BEAUTIFUL Princess Castle Chocolate Cake that Sandra made from scratch. I don't have photos (thank goodness as I look my age now). You are just too much Sandra - THANK YOU!!!! my friend.
Lastly not to forget the other wonderful friends that share the same birthday with me:
MAYAKLA (Sandra's little girl, who was 3 on Saturday)
Debbie (my friend from my DS school)
I hope you all had a lovely day.
Here is the card that DH,DD & DS gave me (do you think they are maybe scrappers at heart)
