Hoooooooooray for the weekend!!!
So sorry I've really been MIA. After a fabulous 30th birthday last week, a weekend spent watching our friends tie the knot and a manic week preparing for the Olympic Torch passing through yesterday, it's been go. go. GO!
So before I start on the paper crafting stuff (I'm sorry. I know that's what you're here for!) Thank you *so much* for your birthday wishes! You know how to make a gal feel blessed ♥! I was spoilt rotten with well wishes and beautiful cards from super talented friends! I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to thanking you all personally yet but I will in time - I promise! Let me say this, if this is what it's like to be in your thirties then I'm wondering what all the fuss was about being in your twenties! :D
Now back to the paper crafting side of things! Well as I said earlier, the Olympic Torch passed through our neck of the woods this week (Both on Monday in Sheffield and on Friday in Derbyshire - where I work and originate from.) There's so much hype about the Olympics kicking off soon that we decided to run an Olympic themed challenge on our A Passion for Papertrey blog:
I've had this idea in my head for what seems like ages and I've been biding my time waiting for the fabulous event to draw closer. Doesn't get too much closer with the torch being within reaching distance twice in one week so it was time to get that idea stamped out!
We hope you can join our fun challenge and get into the Olympic spirit too! Less than a month to go!
Before I leave, I thought I'd share a pic of my guy and me at our friends' wedding last weekend.
I know I'm biased, but I reckon I'm a pretty lucky gal to have such a handsome and sweet guy. He earned major boyfriend points for my birthday by surprising me with a gorgeous pair of shoes I've had my eye on for ages (I didn't even tell him about them! How did he know?!) and a watch from a favourite label of mine, Roots. The brand holds fond memories of our first trip to Canada which blew my mind. He'd even been sweet enough to set the time on the watch to the time in Toronto - our second home. Love!
Right I must dash. I'm hooked on Wimbledon and I must get the chores completed before Murray comes out on the court!
Thank you so much for stopping by and still reading after my waffling and long absence!
Catch ya later!
