You Never Thought To Share What You Knew

I was excited to see the new challenge series running over at Aussie Scrap Source
Style Lounge inspires you to try different styles of scrapping and the first one is Shabby Chic
and here is my ummm attempt

used the cool new signboards from Scrapmatts,
spraying it with glimmer mist and backing it with some vintage paper from a dictionary

used some Prima flowers and a Making Memories butterfly, that was placed in a Tim Holtz photo holder

The paint colour was a little daunting but I just pretended it wasn’t soft pink and the cream was black

I think it worked Smile
Yesterday the girls decided to pull out their Thomas sets
They all have a couple of sets each and have enough, between them, to loop the house and beyond

They continued with their ‘Thomas-ing’ again today

and this was the sight that greeted Uncle Samuel when he arrived for a visit this afternoon

Jessica spent most of her afternoon at a birthday party
All the guests were put into teams and they all competed in an Amazing Race
Jessica came home very tired after enjoying the day immensely
Her team came first and they all received certificates and got to keep their team bandannas 

and now it’s time for me to put my feet up, to sip on a coffee and to have a nuggle with Dave Smile
