The Lazy Sunday w/c 26.05.12

Hi Goddesses

I'm launching something different today.  It's something I've wanted to do for a while, but just not gotten around to, partly because I'm not organised enough and partly because it takes effort!  For that reason, if you've enjoyed this post, I NEED TO KNOW - it's the only thing that will encourage me to keep doing it!

So, this is the equivalent of the Sunday Supplements, all those fab mags and extras you get with the Sunday papers - it's designed to be an easy and lazy way to catch up on my week, and also look forward to what's coming up.

Usually, this will run Sunday to Saturday, but this first post is starting from last Saturday because we launched the Summer Challenge through the Purple Crumpet Fairy FB group (click here if you want to join).

So, what did I get up to ?  Well, first the Torch started it's journey (here)

then we took in the Chelsea Flower Show (here)

I showed you some matted Summer Dots (here)

For Orange Freestyle Day I tried to do a Lynnderella jelly sandwich (here)

and then yesterday, my Favourite Summer Colour was Cult Nails Manipulative (here)

I am doing the Summer Challenge with some amazing ladies.  Here's some of my favourite manis they've done -

A full list of everyone's blogs is at the end of this post.

It was also Stamping Week on The Crumpet, which was a chance for me to clear some semi-fails out of the vault!

So here we have - Taupe Holo Beaded Curtains

and the theme for Adventures In Stamping was The Sky's The Limit

I was also the guest blogger at Northern Nails this week and did a tape mani for Jo -

And then there was also Monkey See Monkey Do Monday, which was my 500th post and paid tribute to one of my nail art loves, Kayla Shevonne -

Phew!  That's a lot of blogging!!  Oh and don't forget the May Mahoooooosive Haul, part 1.

So that was my week - what does this next week hold in store?  Well, tomorrow I get to take part in ANOTHER challenge, Harry Potterthon - 7 girls, 7 books, 7 days.  Should be awesome.

I also have A LOT of planning to do for June, as June is going to be the awesomest month you've ever seen on The Crumpet.  I can't go into too much detail yet, but I have LOTS of special things lined up for you.

So, please tell me your thoughts on this style of post, and whether it works for you, and also anything else you'd like to see in this, or indeed on the blog in general.

Finally, as promised, here are the Summer Challenge Purple Crumpet Fairies -
