Home again, Home again, jiggety jig!!

Did you miss me? I am sure  this is the longest ever I have not posted, but I am too lazy to research that fact! Anyway, I have just returned from foreign shores, after our family holiday fortnight, where the sky was blue as blue......
.....and I am browner than I have ever been!
I have collected some great snapshots, photo's and bits and pieces for my holiday scrap book and I am raring to go!! With only one week left before we return to school, I had better get my skates on!!
We did sight seeing...

....go karting
mini golf...
and eating.....
and more eating!!!
Time for the dieting to resume!!!! TFLx

June in review

Now we are heading through August, I thought I had better complete my June in review page and then create my collage print for my July page before I forget! I am way behind with weekly pages, but at least the year album is on course! June was DS2's birthday month and he started driving lessons and passed his theory test, so it was quite busy! It was also father's day and DS1 came home from Uni so plenty or snaps! I put some library cards in a pocket on the front for journaling and used the new Fiskars punch mentioned in the last post to punch out and create a window to put a contrast paper behind. The three embellishments add the texture and height. TFLx

Last week in pictures

I have decided to keep a pictorial diary of the summer holidays, just so I don't lose track of how I spent my time off!
Monday: Coffee with friends in the morning. Tidied the craft room - MEGA! Even managed some scrapping in the evening! 3 layouts! Used my new Fiskars punch.

Tuesday: Vaxed the hall carpet, then had an Indian Head massage (present from my birthday.)
Wednesday: Had a headache :( Collected together my summer reading matter for the holidays, chick lit! Chose Laura Ashley wallpaper for the hall feature wall.

Thursday: Ironing all morning ( inc 19 shirts!) Read my first book of this summer, on the lawn, it was a beautiful day!
Friday: Walked Barney and picked blackberries, brought them home and used them with some apples from the freezer to make a pie! TFLx
