Last Minute Page

Do you like this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch?
I wasn't going to join in this week. We are split into DT Teams and this week is the other teams turn, but incase you haven't noticed, I join in every week, my team or not. I think I've only missed a couple since I've been on the DT which is almost a year now. I just love these sketches and would join in anyway. I find it hard not to take part.
So this one was very last minute. I'm having such a busy week, but just couldn't resist and had to join in.

I used a couple of photos taken whilst at Chessington Zoo on Sunday.
I don't have many photos of Hollie as she was a miserable 'wannabe teen' all afternoon. Obviously the zoo isn't a cool place to go anymore **rolls eyes**.
But Louis had fun, so that was good.

I love using the Claudia Helmuth paints. The tecture to them is just great. You really do get what you pay for I have to say when it comes to paints I've found.

So today is sunny : ) and Hollie has a lovely friend over for a sleepover. They are currently baking triple choccie cup cakes. I think they will be very sweet. Hollie misread the recipe and added 2+abit cups of sugar instead of 2/3 of a cup. I tried to take some out but all the cocoa powder was mixing in. So we'll leave this one down to experience I think.
Yesterday the 3 of us bakes Red Velvet Cupcakes and they were very yummy.

I hope you are all enjoying your week if you are home with the kids too.
Don't forget to join along with the Sketchy Thursdays Sketch this week. The prize is really really good this week. Go take a look here.

See you soon xxx
