Louis' Terror

I hope you've had a good weekend.
I finished this LO off this morning rather early. Not because of my usual reason because I love early mornings, but as I was so naffed off all night by my snoring and quilt stealing husband. Really not a good start. He did though empty the dishwasher and make the bed this morning, so I'm guessing he feels abit guilty.

So, I'm sharing my Sketchy Thursday LO this morning. You know how much I love these sketches.

And my take. I've pretty much stuck to the sketch this time. My LO's usually end up looking nothing like it:

Poor Louis really wasn't a happy bunny. The rest of us 3 found it hilarious. (the ride, not Louis' upset, that just made us laugh a little)

Look at his little face. I should have done a before and after on those photos. The smile and the sad face.

I changed my mind with the title. I started with some turquoise alpha stickers. But the different shade of blue didn't look quite right. So I plastered some blue paint over top, as you do. Then ended up peeling the stickers off. I'm quite pleased with the accidental title.

That chicken I made yesterday was so so scrummy. Really gave Nandos a run for it's money. 17 different herbs and spices and stuff went into the rub. By the way, if you have any advice on how I can get my lovely pink Le Cruset dish looking lovely again, please let me know. I've soaked and scrubbed and it's got burnt herbs and spices welded on : (
There's still half a happy chook left, so it's fajitas tonight. Yum Yum. And I think I'll bake banana and blueberry muffins later too. I made the best banana frosting the other day. Philadelphia, icing sugar and a drizzle of banana liquor : )
I wonder if that's why the kids slept so well??

I love the Tower of Terror, poor Louis though, he doesn't look happy!

I use Barkeepers Friend on my Le Creuset (I think that's what it's called, haven't got any at the moment to check). It's like talc that you mix into a paste and will get the stuck on bits off no problem. You should find it with the specialist cleaners in the cleaning aisle.

Poor Louis, he sure didn't look happy! I will avoid such rides, can't stand heights and any jiggy movements! Gorgeous LO.
