A very Chilly Sat AM in Devon, England... And I'm on my soap box !!!

It's freezin! Ok well 3 OC is freezin to me...I don't do cold. And sitting on my bottom typing this doesn't help keep me warm, but it is fun! And Sat is normally the only chance I get to just SIT and Blog ! The kids are having their turns on the PS2 and Wii, so apart from groans and shouts it's pretty peacefull. NOT! Fortunatly for me I'm pretty good at turning deaf ! And they only get to go on it at the weekend so it's their time to chill too.

Only at the weekends!
 Arn't I mean??? Nope. I don't agree with them spending hours and hours glued to a screen that doesnt provide any company,  LOVE, conversation or support. What IS the point in having children or in being a family if they are constantly shut away in their room or if they withdraw into a world of  make-believe?  How can I possibly KNOW my children if I don't spend time with them?
Can U tell they don't have TV's in their bedrooms either?

I am amazed at the amount of young children that have speach problems... But then I see toddlers and babies in a pram/ buggy and the parent or person pushing it is wearing headphones and listening to music on their MP3 player.


I loved spending that time singing nursery rhymes and chatting with my babies...Don't get me wrong, we all have MP3 players, even my 7 yr old but they have a time and a place. Why waste those lovely years when they love the time and attention? It makes me mad!

OK, moan over for now,, time for the fun stuff.....


I have decided to try and do a few of these chal' over at  I Love Promarkers.
It's gr8 to find a chal' site that exclusively uses Promarkers for the coloring.
Gr8 cus' thats wot I've got!


Colours used are
Skin - Vanilla, Oatmeal and a dash of Honeycomb around the hairline.
Eyeshadow - Cool Aqua and a dash of Sky Blue.
Cheeks - Rose Pink.
Hairband, Scarf, Belt and Shoes -Rose Pink, Cerise, Magenta and Hotpink.
Top - Cinnamon.
Trousers - Cocoa.
Hair is a motchpotch of colours inc Shale & Walnut. I think!



I found this pretty tough cus' I like to have all my papers really matching. I'm not the type of person who can just put papers together and they look fab, sometimes selecting my papers is wot takes me the longest! But I got there in the end.
Papers are mainly DCWV.
Bazzill Cardstock.
Brown flower is coloured using ProM - Walnut.


Please leave comments, they are much appreciated...
Hugs Vee.
