A last hurrah

My In -Laws arrive tomorrow- today I should be tidying the spare room (aka the scrap room) and the rest of the house but before I go off to the tip with 8 bags of rubbish I thought I might squeeze in a LO or two ( or more)

here's what I squeezed into my last scrapbooking time!

Arthur pulling silly faces- I used Echo Park papers and instead of the banner at the bottom of the sketch I cut out some cars from the paper and made a border with them.

I got out a doily to start making a LO from this sketch- then I saw this piece of die cut paper staring at me from the side of my desk- daring me to use it after having it for quite a while- so I abandoned the doily and made this instead- I bought this new bee stamp in Pipoos this week and found a use for it today- it looks an awful lot like the bee stamp that was in the latest Studio Calico kit that I didn't have an alternative for in my Counterfeit kit.

Nancy and Arthur went on a school trip this week- we went to a massive indoor playground in Amsterdam- my two had the best time ever- the whole place opened up just for us so they had the run of the place it was like the best birthday party just without the presents!

I ended up flipping the sketch once I started as I didn't want to cover up the papers I had stuck down on the left hand side of the page
