Christmas Days Out..........

~Afternoon all,
~So it's been a busy week, as you can imagine at this time of year!!! Firstly I got my first 3 months of challenges for Scrap Tiffany, all of which are great - I cannot wait until next year, it's going to be great, so look out for the first challenge on 4th January. Today I had my hairdressing interview at college, I think it went well, and I had a dexterity test, so I learned to french braid and put rollers in, so now I just have to wait to hear from the college about whether I'm on the course or not!!!!
~Last Monday, Jay and I went to meet up with Steve, Emma, the boys and some friends in Edinburgh, we went to the German Market, which was fab and ATE loads. Here are some pics:
~Ben and Steph:
~This was the german man who made the MOST amazing hot chocolate with amaretto:
~Here is Jay enjoying her hot mulled wine:
~I wanted to go Ice Skating but it's so expensive and it was VERY cold but maybe next year:
~All in all it was a fabulous day out, we all had a really great time but I was so tired by the time I got home!!!!
~Saturday I took Jamie to Glasgow for the day, as it was his birthday last week..... I take him out every year just after his birthday to get his present. This year he chose a bear from the Build-A-Bear factory........
~His bear is named Jack.... now you might be wondering why he has 2 bears... well there was an offer on, if you spent a certain amount of money you got a bear for £5 so he bought it and guess who he gave it too?? YUP ME!!! So my bear is called Hector and he's lovely..... plus he's the first teddy I've ever had from Jamie so he's quite special really.

~On the way to Pizza Hut, we saw this man blowing fire, I did take quite a few photos BUT this was by far my favourite shot:
~Here is Jamie on the way home from Glasgow, with Jack fully dressed in his gorgeous tracksuit and Sketchers, he also has jammies and a karate suit with all the different coloured belts (he's a spoiled bear!!!):
~Jamie stayed with us for the whole weekend, and on Saturday night we got some more decorations up and Jamie sat in the tinsel box:
~I would like to say I've done some crafting BUT I haven't.... other than my DT work for the Everyday Scrapper, I did these ATC's:
~I actually made them for my college class, and they all loved them!!!

~I've just uploaded my class for this Thursday, obviously it hasnt' gone up yet, but here is a wee sneak peek:
~Well that's me for now, I'll be back later in the week. I hope you're all having a great December and you're getting all your Christmas Shopping done - we're pretty much finished, just got some more cards to make and getting some more food tonight!!!!
~love, Vicki xx

Learning to put in rollers... that's something I need to learn to do by myself! Any brand recommendations? I was thinking about the velcro ones for volume.

Hot choc with amaretto.... MMMM!
