Here’s Looking At You Kid!

She got all her stars again this week
Now we, Elizabeth and I, need to find something to bake because she has it in her head that her reward is cooking something together, seems no one else minds!

Last night Dave had to attend a work function, a black tie dinner, and the lovely Allison and her Mum, better known around here as Rosie Posie, decided to come over for a scrap night
So it was all actions go after a busy day
I completed these 2 pages between nattering :)


this one is “a page and a third” it’s 15x12
I was inspired by Louise Nelson’s double page with a difference :)


I used a butterfly that Lucy made at pre kinder and stitched around it


Then I added the journaling around the edge, journaling about how she starts Kinder next year and that I hope she settles in ok, enjoys every aspect of kinder, makes friends and adjusts to having lots of people around


and this 8.5x11 page, using my balloon photo cos i like it :)



This morning we only had one soccer game to attend
Jessica’s was forfeited because the other team had so many people away sick and couldn’t get the numbers for a team
Dave’s out at the first of his weekend games, playing 2 this weekend, and us girls are about to take Megan to a birthday party
