Deal Maker

Good Morning,

I decided to get up real early today to enjoy the first few hours alone in my studio.
A fave thing of mine to do. Coffee on, music on and scrap. I've actually been printing off and editing lots of photos for our Easter holiday mini book that I'm making this weekend. It's going to be based on 'the stories' this year.
I like to make the albums whilst the stories are all still fresh in my mind.

I didn't get much scrappy time in, in the end yesterday, but 2 LO's did come together grabbing a few minutes here and there throughout the day.

Here's one of them and also an Easter holiday story.

The Deal Maker

Louis is always trying to make money and think of ways to do so.
This day we were all building our own creations on the beach. We all needed sandcastles made so seeing as Louis wasn't building anything in particular we asked him to build them for us.
He charged us for making them!!
I was quite pleased though as we found out later that he hard charged Hollie 5p a castle and me just 1p and I got 5 castles for the price of 4!!

I used the new Fancy Pants collection 'Beach Bum' for this page.
The stars I reversed and misted and the title has been sanded for a more rustic beach effect.
The wave and fish are in the little pack of 'design embellishments' from the collection.

So what are you upto today?
Hollie and I are having a girlie trip out to M&S this morning. A bit of shopping first thing, just the two of us. We also have a BBQ planned today and Dr Who and back on TV tonight. Yay!!!! A family fave of ours. We can't wait : )

Enjoy your Saturday.
Lots of love xxx

FAB layout, I love the waves and the swirl! My sons like to find ways to earn money by doing things too, they often put on little plays or trampoline shows and charge us 20p entry :) I am hoping to do some scrapping today and am sooo excited for Dr Who tonight as it is a family favourite here too :)
