Sketch 100 and Girls night out!



Make sure you go over and check out Pencil Lines this week,we hit our 100th sketch and the whole gang is there for it!!

Mine does look nicer in real life,all the circles are hand stitched on ,which took me ages to do! I haven't done any sewing for ages so I quite enjoyed it,even if it did take so long! This sketch was perfect for this photo that I took of Holly in a rope tunnel at the local park :)
I used Scenic Route Laurel papers (my fave and most used paper range ever I think!)& chipboard and a mix up of buttons.


Summer returned yesterday...for one day only it seems as it's back to rain again today! We made the most of it,with the girls spending the afternoon in the pool (even Geoff joined them!) and having a BBQ for tea :) Even the badminton net made a re-appearance having been pretty redundant so far this summer!

I finally managed to catch up on some sleep this morning,waking up at almost 10am,which is unheard of for me! I did feel much better for it though and spent the rest of the morning de-labelling and washing all the girls new uniform.I cannot believe the last six weeks have gone so fast :(

This evening Anna and I headed off to the cinema to finally see Mamma Mia...OMG...I want to go again !! We laughed, cried and stuffed our faces with popcorn.If you haven't seen this film yet ,go!!Roll on November when it's out on DVD! We then went to Frankie & Benny's to stuff ourselves a little more - the perfect end to the hols before routine kicks in again!

SO pleased you got to use the pool, perhaps we'll have an Indian Summer and you can use it every weekend in September!
Sounds like a perfect girls night out!
