back in the groove

Did you notice I was gone? We just got back from a week's holiday and I have so many cute photo to scrap i got started- I also have a list of about 20 challenges I want to do! Thank goodness I have until the end of the month to do some of them!

having said I have loads of photos I want to scrap- these are some old ones from last summer- its called 2 if at first you don't succeed ... sulk" Nancy's face in the bottom picture is a picture of petulance
the sketch
5.5 sketch challenge

these are some new photos- we visited Drenthe an area of the Netherlands famous for its hunnedbeds- ancient burial mounds- we had various long cycling trips to find as many as we could- this one was deserted so the perfect opportunity to give the self timer on the camera a go (It was me that had to run round the hunnebed , climb on and get into position before the 10 seconds were up)-this is also for Shimelle's challenge- scrapbook using patterned paper- simple

Fave Things

Julie has a great challenge for me this time- what is your favourite thing about Spring? Spring is my favourite season and what I love is the Spring flowers- from the first snowdrops, through crocuses, daffodils, tulips, bluebells ( oh how I miss the bluebell woods in England) right down to the dandelions and daisies that my children bring me in teeny tiny bunches ( or they pull the heads off and bring me a squashed handful)

Anyway i took some pictures of Nancy yesterday while we watched Stanley's last game of football. She was rolling round in the daisies so I got her to pose with them- super cute
