Two for Tina

Ok, thought I'd be nice to my friend Tina and put two of her DT challenges on one post - see! I am nothing if not thoughtful...

First up is for Lasting Memories - an Autumn theme this week. Bit tricky as I am definitely in Spring mode but autumn colours are popping up all over the scrapping world at the moment so hard not to be inspired..

 All supplies from The Lilypad.

And then my first (legitimate) attempt at Digitally Sweet. I did one a few weeks ago but was too late. I do have a tendency to leave these things to the last minute... They would like some ribbons on your Lo. This one I am particularly pleased with. Although to be honest, a fair bit of the pleasure has to do with the background paper from Anna Aspnes - Art palette Scientist. Just so yummy! This is a photo taken last autumn while walking around our little lake in town. I do love my camera phone.

Now that the football season is over (sad my poor boys lost in the Grand Final...), I can scrap a bit more and we are actually sitting down and watching movies again. Have loved the Avengers (mmm - Thor)

  Ok may have mentioned him before...

and also really liked Slumdog Millionaire (completely recommend the book as well ). And Sherlock Holmes - so much fun. Still love the TV series as well.

 Also watched Speed with oldest 2 children. Unfortunately they had seen the Myth busters episode that busted all the special effects and took great delight in pointing all the faults out. My observations that a movie with Keanu from this era is well worth watching and not for his acting skills, seemed to be ignored. But they did watch it through to the end (ok admittedly a very ridiculous ending). Looking forward to a relaxing few weeks.

Hope you are in a good happy place where you are xx

Luna Landing said...

Ahh...who is this Thor fellow you speak of? Can I meet him?
My Ruby and I saw Ruby Sparks at the movies. Must See - very clever and no trace of a formula in sight. Breath of fresh air. Funny in bits too (its by the people who did Little Miss Sunshine).....:)
