So. Here we are again. So soon. This time with a layout. I know. It's been a long time coming. This layout was started about 6 weeks ago now, maybe even 7 weeks. A long time, anyway. I originally started it for one of the Journal Challenges prompts. I guess the thing that held me back from finishing it was the journalling. I had so much to write but only a 14 x 6cm rectangle to do it in. So. I decided to get to the point. And I did that yesterday and I am liking the fact that it is finished. That I have my thoughts down. And I will let you in on a little secret. Crocheting through a piece of cardstock is hard. Especially with cooking twine. But worth it. :)


PS. That's Kate in that photo with Nan, not Amy. Oh no. The poor kids really do look like me!

I came across this photo of myself and my sister, Fliss. And gosh darn it, if Amy isn't the spit out of my mouth.


Excuse Amy's dirty face! :P Now, back to looking for that baby photo of me for the upcoming CC at TSE.

I don't really have much to say today, just a bit of a share. Here are some newsletter layouts for TSE:

I got to work with Scrap Within Reach's Industrial Park range. Really masculine and grungy. Really fun just to let go and have fun.

Also, I have only about 10 pages to go until I finish reading this:

Amy has learnt that she can shimmy up the slide and then lie down and go back down. She loves it.

And while I type, Steve just called out to me to tell me that Amy can roll her tongue. I always thought she could, every now and then it looked like she was about to, but now, she has. Very cool!!! :D

Well, I have had a bit of a life/scrapping/blogging hiatus. It's been nice.

I went into the city with my uncle to take some photos. This is my favourite photo from the night. You wouldn't believe that 3 boats went past either. Lucky my uncle knows a couple of tricks. ;)

Luke was cast as a cow in his class' item for assembly. I made him this cow costume. Although the kids were picking on me at one stage saying it was a monkey suit because the tail was quite long.

And then on to Father's Day. Steve got quite spoiled this year. Nothing he doesn't deserve. We decided to go to Brighton-Le-Sands for a frolic on the beach, no swimming though as it is still too cold!

And what day at the beach would be complete without some fish and chips?

Well, that's about it from me today, I am off to finish some layouts and Amy will wake up soon. I will be back in a couple of days with some layouts. :)
