I Think Ice Cream Tastes Better When You Eat It With Those You Love

What a day today has been

Lucy had a birthday party to attend


was proud of her writing


she wrote each of the letters, as we spelled the words for her, without asking how you write them

Megan showed off what she made yesterday


her own puppet theatre
Complete with scenery to change as well as puppets

While we waited for Lucy’s party to finish we wandered around
Here are just 2 of the things we spied



and then we went here


squished our noses on the window


went inside to drool some more


before making our selection and enjoying


we then spent some time in the park where “the blue slide is awesome”


A good day but sadly for the wrong reasons
My sister has, what we hope is just, a slipped disc and is spending the night in hospital
Tonight we have a house full of precious little girls :)

I finished off a page today for the new challenge site The Color Room
Each week they will inspire you with a new colour combination, and a sketch which you don’t have to use.
The first challenge is up and I couldn’t say no :)

Go check out the site and see the amazing design team’s creations
So, using the sketch and colour combo, here is my page


and the usual close ups :)
love me some shipping tags, crackle paint and dyed doilies


Used quite a few Such Sweet Tierney buttons, cos I love em :)



Stuck a few Maya Road pins into the chipboard letters


and the journaling, cos it didn’t feel right to make a page without that :)


Right so that is pretty much my day, how has yours been????

Pin It Now!
