Just chuck it all In !

I decided to chuck all of my latest LOs into one all purpose post. James and the boys went out to watch football in sub zero temperatures last night leaving me to craft. 3 hours later i had seven LOs (five of which are here two are in a separate post)

Much excitement- our new printer is here and working so now I can print out little photos and make multi photo LOs- hooray

So here goes
1. Design Dollies latest sketch

This is Arthur blowing massive bubbles at our recent street party. Its quite common here for streets to close for a street party but our street is a major ring road so it's never been done before. Anyway this year our road was closed for major road works so we were able to have our first and last street party.
from this ( someone very kindly told me how to resize things but I'm hopeless)

Arthur on a boat on Lake Como- I love the way he smiles

Sketch 92
3. Pencil lines latest sketch

Its called "waiting for change" because 1. I just scrapped this photo in large size and 2 I noticed how little Athur's teeth look. He's getting on for 6 now so it's only a matter of time before the tooth fairy is visiting our house for Arthur as well as Stanley
From this tricky little number

The get Picky challenge is all about using more than one photo on your LOs. This time the challenge was a quote from Audrey Hepburn

Here it is"I believe in manicures, i believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick.I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Its such a great girl quote and I took the line I believe in pink. Nancy loves make up but she's not great at applying it yet- as the photos prove
From this lovely quote and picture

Gotta love this hat from Ikea- My first though was Carmen Miranda ( I don't think I ever saw one of her films but she's just one of those familiar faces[or hats}] from my youth.
