Another week ahead.
Nothing major planned.
The sun is shining.
Work is busy this week.
And I'm still feeling very happy about getting together with such great friends at the weekend. Good friends are worth their weight in gold aren't they?!!

I managed to scrap a fair bit at Sue's. Amongst some DT projects, I joined in with The Color Room this week. I always intend to join in, but don't manage it as often as I would like. Here's this weeks colour pallete.

So here's my LO. My negative child. As often as he makes me laugh, he makes me roll my eyes. Here we go again. ''I've had the worst day ever''....''This is the worst meal I've ever eaten''.....''I hate school''.....or today quite chirpy...''I'm not going to school today Mummy''.
So quite chirpily back I just answered ''Ok, that's fine. That's a shame though as you won't be able to tell Oliver that you can't go to his party''.
I try not to react and just reply as upbeat as possible. Every now and then reminding him of all the good things.

I've used the Restoration Collection from Crate Paper. It arrived at the end of last week and I LOVE it. I can see me needing more of this.
I handcut these leaves, 'ruffed' up the edges with scissors, inked and then hand stitched the centres.

The background was made by laying a die cut sheet over part of the page and spray misting quite lightly.
Once the page was finished I splattered it with some Tattered Angels Sunflower glimmer mist.

Thanks for stopping by xxx

I really, really like this page! I could see lifting not only the LO, but also the idea. Nate can be the same way. He'll say, "Fine! I hate all my toys then." Like, that's gonna hurt MY feelings! LOL!

Great idea for a LO - I have a child like that and it's all too easy to forget the 'lesser' qualities of their character!!
