OMG I can't believe....

...it's been nearly 2 months since I have been on here.... WOW that time went by so quickly!!

But I have been in hospital & been busy with tests... I haven't been on here or the Cricut site or any of the challenge sights for so long, so hopefully I can get back into it all; now that I have my results & things are settling down.

My other venture has been pushed back too, I was to start card making & scrapbook classes this month, but hopefully next month...

************************************************************************************

So to get back into the swing of things, my Sister & I went away for the weekend with a great group of ladies on a scrapping retreat & it was wonderful!! It was a pretty place, very relaxing!!
