MI... AKA 1001!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep post 1001 and it's a long one...

Friday night Megan was at a school sleepover/camp. It was held overnight at school, just the grade 3 and 4's and they slept in tents on one of the ovals. They had a fantastic time and we went to pick her up 8am Saturday. This is a photo looking across half of the oval so you can see the sea of tents.

We took the girls then to McDonalds for breakfast then home before Dave went to play soccer (they won 1-0).

Allison then came for dinner and a scrap so I roped her in to assist the girls in some scrappin'. I think they all enjoyed the process lol
and here are their pages




and Megan's

Today we didn't go to Church, opting for sleep ins, housework and just time at home together. So I thought I would play eye spy with my camera, seeing as I haven't done that in a while ;)

Spied some Dancing Ballerina's dancing to the Bee Gees

Some ready to be picked and eaten broad beans,
Elizabeth's kindy class had each planted a broad bean plant for their parents for Christmas last year. Her plant has thrived in the garden and today we picked, podded and cooked the beans we found.

Spied other yummy goodies from our garden

Spied some graffiti on a calendar
and was glad of those kisses and cuddles today.
Today was sheet washing day. Dave strips and remakes the beds, LOVE YOU DAVE, and today he made each of the girls beds and I spied this today which made me laugh and smile.



and Megan's

He also made dessert. He called it vanilla surprise. I spied the surprise, do you??!!
Was just a vanilla variant of Lemon Meringue and he had added green colouring to the custard... I'd like to say it's a boy thing but...
Today I scrapped this page, yep it's 12x12 lol

Had downloaded this free template, printed it out on canvas photo paper, cut out the Friday one, sprayed it with Jazz Blue Glimmer Mist, added the journaling and then stapled it onto my page.

Don't often use digi/printed/downloaded things to my page but really want to do that more.
Last night, while Allison was here, I worked on this canvas, which I finished off today.

Ok so here endeth this rather long post.
I am off to watch CSI!!
Pin It Now!
