Tis the season

..for barbecue's, daisy chains and filthy feet {from walking barefoot in the garden!}
More lazy days this weekend,I try not to go anywhere in this heat!
Yesterday morning we were up bright and early to go and see 'Horton Hears a Who' at the family theatre showing.Both girls loved it and Holly giggled her way through most of it! After that we went and finally managed to get Holly a pair of trousers for Brownies that fit (3rd attempt!) We then went on to Tesco's for the food shop before heading home to set up the paddling pool and the barbecue.We've also done a lot more tidying in the garden too.I sometimes wonder why I longed for a garden so much when they are such hard work!
Today Geoff's been in work ,Em has been revising for her SAT's which start tomorrow,and Holly has come down with a cold :( We have made ice lollies and lots of daisy chains and have enjoyed the sunshine ,even though we spent most the day sat in the shade!
I was very late with my Pencil Lines layout this week,and I'm not sure that I'm happy with it :( It didn't help that although I'd cleaned the mask, it still merged black ink in with the green I used to make it a murky colour!

I used
white bazzill
handrawn borders
Prima Crystal swirls
Heidi Swapp mask
Heidi Swapp bling
AC Vinyl thickers
KI softie button

This week sees both girls doing their SAT's, though Holly's are a lot more low key than Em's.I'm also clearing out and decorating Holly's room this week so that we can put her new bed up at the weekend.I have a heap of scrapping & CJ's still to do too which I really need to get my butt in gear and do!

I LOVE the layout - it is so pretty and I didn't even notice the black ink thing ! Forget the scrapping and relax in the garden some more - you know this weather will not last forever ! Sara xx
