So much going on!

Phew its been a busy old week...actually its been a busy month or so! BIG DCM NEWS: We have the absolute pleasure of having Lynne join us as a full time DCM designer. We are so chuffed and we will get to se loads of her fab fab fab creations! So welcome aboard Lynne!

Today is the DCM little extra. This week it was primary colours! I had a great time with this card and went a little overboard with the walnut ink so it looks a little dirtier than I had intended!

FIL is still is still in intensive care. There are some serious problems with his lungs as well as other issues so continuing prayers would be much appreciated. I found this picture of him when he and MIL came to visit back in 2005. I love this photo I hope and pray to God that we will again be able to share moments like this!

Well Ibrahim started his new school today (yes I'm about to get all motherly so reach for a bucket as I've been gushing for two days over my boy) Yesterday was a well needed trip to the barber. We just popped in to a new place and he gave Ibrahim a great cut-although my kid sister said that its geeky....well I think that (mashallah) he looks gorgeous! So here is a before photo from Sunday morning at the park and an after photo from yesterday!

And here is my boy..you can now actually see his face hehe......
I really love this photo and it is going into my box of pics to scrap..that is an ever growing mountain!!!! I'm really pleased that he has been excited about starting his new school! I think it helps that he already knows one of the boys in his class. The last week or so was spent kitting him out...WOW uniforn isnt cheap, but we found a blazer at the thrift shop at the school for the grand sum of £8 which saved me about £90 would you believe!! Everything is labeled including socks as Ibrahim is as scatty as they come! He will lose anything! Anyway Ibrahim this morning looking all smart (Im sure he wont look like this when I go to collect him!!) My boy is all grown up..I don't know where the time has gone!!!!

And if you have got to the end of this post..well done!!!!! Go take a well earned rest of go make a card for the DCM challenge!!

He looks so smart in his school uniform. I hope he's enjoying it and you aren't missing him too much when he's there.

Hope your FIL is getting better
