2 out of 5

Have you seen October's Cocoa Daisy Kit?
Nice eh?!!



Mine finally arrived Thursday morning, 8am. It took almost 3 weeks to reach me. To be honest I'm just grateful it arrived. I was starting to worry that I would never see it.
As I knew it was coming and knew what I was getting more or less, I planned ahead and printed off photos and made notes.
So by the next afternoon I have 3 LO's and a card ready to upload to my DT gallery at Cocoa Daisy.I was really pleased with the kit and have found it very easy to play with.

I created this page yesterday morning. I love how the kit is very Autumnal but I created this bright page with it.



This is from Ronda's sketch which you can see
here. It's the October Sketch at Cocoa Daisy. Deadline is 31st Oct and you don't need to use the kit to join in or even be a member. Anyone can play along.



This page is all about how Louis wants to be 2 out of these 5.
Spy Agent, Zoo Keeper, Scientist, Author or Lego Designer.
On the left of the page, I've cut circles out of the pp and then cut in half to create the scalloped look. It's the same paper, just doublesided. I've the cut 2 thin strips from the other papers and layered along the edge.



The thickers came in an addon kit. They were an aqua colour so I painted over them so they stood out better.



And this is the cute stamp that comes in the main kit. I love stamps like this.

From one sketch to another.
Have you seen the sketch this week at Twisted Sketches? If not this visit here. There's a card sketch on there too.
Here's my page from last weeks sketch. So rectro, don't you think. Click the photo if you want to see close up.



I love this photo of me as a babe with my young parents. I find it so scary that Mum was only 18. So young! I particually love this photo as it was taken at my Grandparents pub. They were a landlord and lady right up until I was an adult, so growing up, we were in the pub lots. We were very very close to them and stayed with them lots. We would help bottle up as kids and clean the bar.We loved it! That smell of ale now as you walk past a pub and seeing those old bar mats in the photo at the back are such comforts. I love it!! Strange : )



The kids have friends over after school today. Hollie one friend and Louis two. I plan to make up my own fresh burger mixture so they can shape their own burgers for tea and I've made brownies for pudding.

Have a good day, thanks for stopping by xxx
