*Happy mail*

This morning some happy mail arrived from Arizona........

courtesy of Deb @ Paperturtle.......

......Thank you Deb
In with my lovely parcel was also some American sweeties!! We have M&M's in the UK too but not exciting ones like these {or at least I have never seen them} There are Dark chocolate ones, Coconut ones, pretzel ones {intrigued} Peanut ones and Milk chocolate ones {these are already in my belly!}

....Also the cutest little bag of personalised embellishments....

I LOVE them! Thank you so much! I already have a page in mind for all of these lovelies {I will share that later}

*April 365*

11th - Our monthly crop
12th - Adam crashed out after a busy day!
13th - Time for new plants, trees and strawberries!
14th - Steve put down some slate in the front garden to finish off the driveway
15th - My {mash} potato salad, I have no idea how to make this - but it tasted good!

16th - I did my nails and toe nails.
17th - More planting!
18th - We arrived in Norfolk!
19th - Chilling on a VERY sunny day, hence the misty photo!
20th - Adam met some trains at the model world.

...and the weekly layout for 365....

I decided to bend my own rules a little this week. This picture was in my Document 2011 for April BUT the photo was very small {I think I am trying to convince myself here!}

I used Shimelle's sketch of the week from a few weeks back for this layout.

I'm getting more and more excited about the scrapagogo crop now, The two classes have been booked for the day and I have started checking things off of my 'to-buy-then-pack' list {like more adhesive!!!} The next job is too order more photos as I seem to have gone on a mass scrapping spree and do not have many left now!!!!

What adhesives do you tend to use in scrapbooking? Just wondering

Lovely happy mail,Rachel....I'm sure you're right about the M & Ms here.
A gorgeous layout of Emily.....and lucky you going to Scrapagogo!!
I use Tombo clear adhesive and their stick glue as them.

What a great post - happy mail, fun photos & a cute layout (love Shimelle's sketches!). I use my ATG adhesive gun for most everything, but also use pop dots, foam dots, glossy accents, etc.

I love getting Happy Mail - all those M&M's look so yummy.
The layout is so cute of your little one and I love how you've puched out the butterflies and used the negative as an embellishment.
Have a great weekend Hun - Ju x

I love the way you did those butterflies. And those toe nails! My nails are always bare - I chip too easily.
