I have tried all the solutions, ie not ticking the keep me signed in box, and ticking it. signing out completely and so on, nothing works so any advice please do tell!

Ok the real reason for this post is a new challenge over at divas by design,our sponsor is the super fabulous Mulberry crafts.

Distressing at DP2 challenge

Good morning lovelies, well that's Meghan back at school and Alex is now on his 3rd day at school, and he seems to be loving it, just hope he feels the same when he has to go full days next week! Maya is not so happy, she is missing Alex and she was the one howling at the gates when he started on tuesday, not me! lol Bless her!
I did post some pics on my facebook page of his first day, i will try to post them here soon too.
Ok, its time for a new challenge over at Mo's digital challenge (DP2), and this week the theme is 
I got so very excited when I found this image in Mo's shop called  Prince Edward Island. I am the hugest fan of Anne of Green Gables, I have loved the books and tv series since I was 11, I still have the original set of books my Dad bought for me, and I re-read them at least twice a year. I have a wish of visiting Prince Edward island, and I hope some day that will come true. Anyway enough of me blethering (chatting for those who dont understand scottish!! lol)
here is my card, I used a quote from the book as my sentiment too.

Totally Sentimental at Joanna sheen

Good morning my lovelies, hope your sunday has some lovely things planned for it.
It is time for a new challenge over at Joanna Sheen challenge, and this challenges theme is 


so we would like to see your creations with the sentiment being the main focal point. 
Now when I saw this theme I panicked as I hardly ever create a card without a coloured image as my main focal point, and can you believe it took me twice as long to make this card, but when I finally got it finished I was quite pleased with the result, it helped a lot that I had fabulous stamps to use. the set I used was Joanna Sheen, Lace stamps, Live each moment

Please just bare with me for a few more days until school is back and I hopefully will get into a routine again. you all really do mean the world to me and I appreciate every single comment left, mwah xxx
Ok its time for a new challenge over at MDUC, and this week we want to see your creations using the masking technique, to use at least two magnolia stamps together. Well I used 3 different stamps on my card this week, boy did it take me ages to colour but it was great fun!
I hope you can join in the fun, and I cant wait to see your creations.
