Proof Reading!

I really must learn the art of proof reading. I read through yesterday's post twice before I published it, and it still has a mistake in it! Tony shouted down the stairs to me this morning about it.

Tony- "Rache you need to read through your blog."

Me- "Why, what's wrong with it?"

Tony- "You've missed a word out or something."

Me- "oh poo (or something similar), I read through that twice last night!"

So from now on, I think I will ask my extra pair of eyes to double check what I've written, before it's published. ;)

And now for some family news! My sister sprung it upon us last weekend, that she is getting married on the 19th March THIS YEAR!!! I'm so excited for her! They've been talking about getting married for quite some time and they thought they might as well just get on and book it. It's just going to be a small wedding party. She asked if I would make the invitations for her, I said of course I would. Deborah will be wearing an ivory wedding dress with a creamy gold sash and Jimi will be wearing a brown suit. So I came up with this for the invites.

The wording has been stamped and embossed. I used a Versamark Ink pad and Comic Shimmer Embossing Powder. I haven't done that much embossing before and I was really pleased with the result.

Thank You!

Thanks to everybody who left comments on my last post. I read all my comments as they arrive and I really appreciate them all. All is well in the baby department. I'm not sleeping very well though, but you can't have everything I suppose.

I thought I'd share a few layouts with today. I've finally managed to take photo's of them today, in the 30 minutes of sunshine we had. Woo hoo! Roll on spring! I get fed up at this time of year when it's grey every day.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year!

Firstly, thank you to everyone that has read my blog this year. I'm hoping to spend a little bit more time blogging in 2010, but we'll have to see what happens!

Anyway, I've got some exciting news.... I'm 3 months pregnant! The morning of New Years Eve was spent in hospital having a dating scan. It was the best New Years Eve I've ever had. I've been feeling so anxious about this pregnancy, so I was thrilled to see our baby's heart beating. I've had a couple of early miscarriages before Dylan was born, so it feels great to be out of the danger zone!
