Fancy a Beverage???

I never realised just how typically English we are as a family until I chat with lots of you from other places all over the world on our fab Cocoa Daisy message board. We LOVE our tea. We have a cup of tea in the afternoon, followed by another cup of tea after dinner with something sweet like homemade cake or a cookie. When we go on holiday we have to take our teabags with us. I like a strong breakfast style tea, as does my daughter and Ade my husband drinks a very milky Earl Grey. Yuk!
We buy a $1 Starbucks takeaway mug when we are on holiday in the US and when we lay around the pool, we take it in turn to go back to the condo to make a fresh brew. Yes it may be 90F, but there’s nothing quite like a good cup of tea no matter the weather.
So my Cocoa Daisy Challenge this month is to scrap your beverage story.
You have until 4th August 11pm EST to play along. Please see here for full details. No Cocoa Daisy Kit required. One lucky scrapper will win a $10 gift card to spend in the Daisy store.

Help I'm trying to find someone....

I'm trying to find 2 ladies who came and spoke to me when I was teaching in the Sparkle Dreams Craft shop in Swindon on Saturday 20th June.

If it was you, please can you email me on:

I never received your email that you said you sent so I haven't been able to get back to you.
The next class is booked for Saturday 12th September in Swindon and I know you wanted to do a mini book class. Please get in touch!!

Thanks Lisa xx

A little Bistro in your Life

This months Cocoa Daisy Kit is called 'Bistro'.
There are some really cute elements to this kit.
I've had a lot of fun playing with it.

We went to see the new Jurassic World movie when it first came out so I scrapped this LO and made a pocket for the cinema tickets.

I also made this pocket page for my Project Life Album.

And recently we had an instagram hop and I made this canvas here.
I have so many more ideas using this months kit.
Enjoy your weekend xxx

Taking a Sneak in to July

My July Cocoa Daisy Kit has arrived.

I do love it when I answer the door to my postie holding my big CD box.
I've been getting the kit for goodness knows how many years and the novelty has never worn off.

The reveal for this kit is June 28th. 9PM EST.
Until then I can share these sneaks with you.


And if planners are your thing, here are a sneak of the July planner kits.

So far I have made 2 LO's with this kit.
Here are a couple of sneaks until the 28th.
I can't wait to create some more.

Go Rainbow

I set a challenge this week at Cocoa Daisy to use as many bright colours as you can.
I love bright happy pages.

Here's a little peek at what I've been up to...

I revamped some old Ikea wooden drawers.

I made this frame.

And a scrapbook page too.

And there's loads more too.

Bye Bye School

So, Hollie finally says goodbye to school.

Her official last day was the 22nd May, but she's been popping in for exams since.
This Friday is her final exam. Where have the years gone???

I documented her last day at school using my June Cocoa Daisy Kit with lots of the DITL Kit and the stamps too.
There is a post here on Cocoa Daisy to see how the Stamps have been used this month.

She's going on to study English Language, Biology, Religious Studies and Art.
I'm so proud of her.
