Dancing Angels and Cupcakes

Grab a coffee and make yourself comfortable I have a feeling this is going to be a long one!!!
My kids make me laugh so much sometimes...Mia comes home tonight and say`s Mummy I am an Angel...now my kids are well behaved to a point but I wouldn`t call them angels so I replied no you`re not you can be a bit naughty sometimes...
No she says In the Christmas Play I am an angel in the "Timity Screen".........................!!!!

Mummy: "What...."
Mia: "The Timity Screen"
Mummy: "You Mean the Nativity Scene"
Mia: "That`s what I said The Timity Screen"

Mummy then very insensitively rolls around the floor, tears streaming from her eyes with laughter and makes Mia say it over and over...she still can`t say Nativity Scene and its so going to be a title for a scrapbook page!!!
The girls also had their Christmas Disco tonight at school...yes I know we are still in November but hey they had a "summer clothes day" at school last week so nothing surprises me anymore, and for the first time ever I was so totally organised, I had bought Mia a new outfit, eventually, why are there so many trampy clothes around for seven year olds, whatever happened to keeping our children children!!! I hate seeing little girls dressed up as teenagers...it is one of my pet hates I think it looks disgusting...oooh hark at me...so lovely new outfit from the Pumpkin Patch, oh my God I could buy everything in there, I love it. Ella had a new outfit for her birthday yesterday so was wearing that and I even plaited their hair last night so it would be all curly tonight...I know I need to get out more but just look how gorgeous my girlie's looked...

When they got home Mia insisted on having a Disco in the Dining room and made up dances for me and her to perform to "Cherry Chapstick" and "So What"...I don`t need a personal trainer when I have my own little Angel...I was exhausted and she was so full of energy saying come on Mummy as Mummy was collapsed on the sofa!!! Guess who has not been on the Wii tonight!!!
and finally...phew I can hear you say, I have been working on a card and a layout for the last few days...been a bit mojo less so it took a while, plus I wanted to stitch on the scrapbook page and could not find a needle in my house...bloody crafter with no needle whatever next!!!
So this is my layout, picture is of Mia about two years ago and is in the gardens of Chester Zoo, I got a new stamp set by Hero Arts this week and one of the sayings is "See the flowers Smiling" just thought it fitted this picture perfectly:

And finally this is a card I have made for a friends birthday, managed to combine Four...yes Four Challenges into this one card!!!
The fabulous Sketch is from Papertake Weekly challenges, and is such a great sketch to work from I will definitely be using it again. Over on Cupcake Craft the challenge is to use sweets or treats on your card, so I got out my gorgeous lil cupcake stamp I have had forever and stamped, water coloured then embossed it with liquid applique, how cool does that cream look. Over on DutchDare, a site I recently found, the challenge is to use three flowers on your card and finally on Secret Crafter the challenge is to decoupage, which I have done to the lil cupcake....wow I am exhausted now!!!
I love taking part in these challenges at the moment, great if you find yourself mojo less like me and there are always plenty of gorgeous creations by the design team members to lush over too.
I am off now to recover from the intense workout by Mia Motivator!!!
