Yesterdays was 'Twelve' todays is 'Nine'.

I've used this weeks 'Pencil lines' sketch as inspiration.
I check out these sketches every week and very rarely have time to do them.
I have such a scrap bug right now though and set my alarm for 5.45am this morning so I could have some uninterupted scrappy time.

I love this cheeky photo of Louis taken whilst we were strawberry picking last weekend.
I've used a combo of Echo Park and Fancy Pants 'Baby Mine' on this page.
I decided to document 9 facts about Louis right now at the age of 9.

I used a 6x6 crafters template down at the bottom. One I hadn't used before.
And the Echo Park papers were papers I picked up at 'Arty Crafty' last week (mentioned in my post below)

It's been a good day today.
I feel like I've managed to get loads done.
Scrapped 2 LO's, did some weeding out in the front garden, had a funeral for 'bunny' (thank you for all the sweet messages btw) took Louis out and we played footy with him, baked some blackberry cupcakes using the blackberries we picked this week and we watched one of the Harry Potters together whilst I worked in the lounge.
Now the 4 of us are about to have a chineese take away.
Not something we do very often as we tend to go to the eat all you can places, but Ade and I were talking about loving getting one when we were kids and sitting around the table with all this food infront of us, so we decided it would be fun tonight.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Fantastic layout and I just love the photo! You have reminded me that I really need to do another current favourites type layout for the kids as I haven't done one in ages and I don't want to forget! :)

Sounds like you sure got a ton done! I am so wanting to sneak away one of your blackberry cupcakes. ;)
Your layout is absolutely adorable. I really love the green you used. It pulls the background green from the photo and makes everything really pop. Love that Echo Park paper. You used it beautifully.
