Hallway Hop Scotch

Yesterday the lovely and thoughtful Allison sent me through a link HERE for making an indoor hopscotch, well I modified it a little, made it with paper and sticky taped it to the carpet and let the girls go for it. They had fun, by the end though Lucy was running full pelt at it and skidding on her bottom to the end!! RATBAG KID!! lol

It is in front of Megan's bedroom and each time she comes out I hear her jumping on each step and again when she goes back in. Funny!!

Today we went out to a scrap shop, that is about a 10-15 min drive from here. We went because they also sell Beanie kids. Megan earned money from picking raspberries at Mum and Dad's so we went out to see if they had one she wanted, they did!! I also bought somethings, yummy Thickers WHICH I LOVE and 2 new tubes of paint, because I just can't walk past this colour!!
So this afternoon I started my new Art Journal. I have been looking at the talented Danielle's work and she has inspired me to get off my backside and start creating all the things I have had in my head!! So here is my first page. 'Life is a canvas just waiting to be painted'. The napkin, which is under the paint, and the dragon fly were in kits from Q-tea.

Today I picked some of yummiest tomatoes.

The big ones are store bought but the little ones are from our garden and the yellow ones are super sweet and the skin really soft, delish!! And they are all gone as we had them in our salad :)

Also today I received a RAK from Lusi. Thanks Mate :) Can't wait to play with the scrappy goodness :) Don't you just love the card she made to go with it!! Super sweet and talented lady!!

Megan rang and spoke to Jessica this morning, we are going to go pick her up Wednesday. She is earning money too and doesn't want to come home lol Megan is missing her heaps, as are we :)

Think thats it so I will say thanks for visiting and toddle off to do something else ;)
