A day of scrapping

Geoff is in Melbourne for work, so I could spread my stuff everywhere, ahhh. It felt good (much as I miss having him around - he's back tomorrow), and I got lots of stuff done.

First up for My favourite things challenge site. I love this site but haven't played for ages. This month it is favourite feature. i have chosen Henry's lovely curly hair. We should move to a rainy country just to keep his hair springy. It is too dry here to keep the curls for long. And he loves his hair. Any threat of a haircut (or even brushing) is met with a LOOK!!! Do not touch the locks!!

This photo was taken in Kuala Lumper so nice and moist to keep the curls (ok, quite messy as well..). I am quite happy with the way this turned out - yay.

Secondly, One of my favouritests sites, The Studio had a blog hop this weekend (and I've just found out I won some yummy stuff, yay again - from Natalie, go check out her work - it is wonderful). Anyway back to the blog hop, the DT snagged a sketch from Anna Bowkis at Pencil lines (another fav) and came up with some stunning Lo's. So thought I must give it a go.

here's the sketch

and here is my interpretation

We went for a walk on Sunday and took lots of fun photos of Henry on his scooter (Ok mostly from behind as he is quicker than I am..).

I have done a couple of other things that I will show you later in the week.

Just an extra piece of happy news for our Meaghan, she scored her first goal at indoor soccer tonight - so proud. She has developed into a very reliable back, but found herself running forward to take the ball and took the chance. She looked quite stunned but everyone was very excited for her. She has such a lovely team, and really nice supportive parents as well - if only they could win occasionally - that would be nice as well.. sigh.

Ok, time for bed (or watching tv for a while) so have a great day - sending out hugs to Julie and hope all goes well for her surgery xxx.

later x

Gorgeous take on the sketch - love both of these pages, especially the one with the curls. My son had them and when we cut them, they never came back - so I'm particularly loving how you worked in the scissor paper :)
