It's Friday

and I have managed to get two lo's done tonight. This is unusual for me as I really don't scrap at night but I had some new stuff from Studio Calico and the days have been too busy (clearing the garden out to fill up a skip arriving tomorrow).

This one is for Design Dollies, both for their sketch and colours (this week: brown, ivory, red and blue). I love the little cosmo cricket bunny.


And the trip back in time is a scraplift (of the wonderful Tessa's Lo) for the Paper Variety. I used her painted background - still not comfortable with paint - mist yes, paint ,no..

This is our Henry when he was two - wasn't his hair wild? Just like a little Einstein.

He had his party at Questacon, he just loved it. So much in fact that when we walking back to the car (car park on one side, reasonably busy road on the other), I was looking into my bag for my keys, when I looked up, Henry had gone. EEEP. I panicked. When I had first checked the road, then the car park, Iran inside, yelling out for Henry. A very nice man said a little blonde boy had just made his way back inside. He was going back in to see the dinosaurs again - phew. I haven't lost him since then..

Ok, more holiday research time, still after advice from anyone who has visited Laos...


have a great weekend. xx
