Sketchy Fun

Bright and breezy for me this morning as I'm about to take Louis to Legoland as he has a teacher trainer day today.

I did manage to get a couple of the Pencil Lines Sketches done yesterday.
This one above is here.

An older photo in my 'to scrap' pile. Hollie about to attend her Junior School Prom.

And I also did this next one.

I had a sort through all my papers on Saturday.
I've cleared loads and have been very ruthless. The kids have a hug bag to play with and so does my brother now too next time I see him.
But I did find lots of papers that I'd forgotten about like this old Sassafras.

Have you seen this weeks challenge at The Studio?

Here's what Amanda set us this week:
My house is slowly but surely being taken over by scrapbooking supplies. I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way. It's not physically possile to use them all at the rate I buy them, so I'm always looking for new ways to use things up. This week, I want to see you all WEARING your stash! OK, I don't expect you to make paper ball gowns (although you can if you wish!), but a little something like a piece of jewelery, hair accessory or brooch shouldn't cause you too much trouble :)

So I made a little hair slide from Basic Grey flowers.
Don't forget to check out what the others did. You've got to see the bracelet that Tessa made. Click here.

The kids got crafting this weekend too. We had a pj day yesterday. Hollie altered an old costa coffee pot and made lots of little bits to go inside.

And I caught Louis looking through his own scrapbook of LO's that he's made. He was in bed Friday night just looking and reading through. So he had the scrapbug this weekend.

and made this : )
All his own doing.

Right, better get my backpack sorted for legoland.

Beautiful LOs Lisa, I especially love the little curly bits of paper coming out of the flowers on the first! Now I know what to do with my little offcuts that do that!

Great Page Louis too! Have fun a Legoland :)
