I made it on to the Rough Draft DT!!! I am so pleased to be a part of this new venture, and as I already have the first sketch in my mits I can tell you it's a good one. This blog is defo one to watch and of course to play along with... there is a RAK up for grabs and all you have to do is leave a comment. Well, what are you waiting for?!?!?
So huge congratulation to the rest of the DT, and a big thanks to Zoe and Jems for giving me the chance to be a part of it.

So I though I better actually do some scrapping, so that I feel I have something to blog... and last night I sat 1 eye on Tess of the Durbervilles, and the other switching between the pooter and the LO, and did this.
The photos were taken on Friday when Harry decided to fall asleep in the dog's bed of all places! Now Jaspa was booked in for a hair cut on the Saturday so his bed was in dire need of a wash, and it smelt pretty rank. So after I lifted bear into his cot and he finished his sleep in the comfort of a feather pillow and duvet, his bedding and his clothes had to be washed as he smelt bleuuuurgh!!!

After school today we got busy with some leaves and glue!!! You wouldn't believe how much mess four 4 year olds and a couple of 1 year olds can make with a spot of glue... I'm sure I'll be peeling it from unexpected places for weeks!!! Harry loves doing crafty things, which I am really pleased about as Oliver shows very little interest at all.... which is very disappointing to a mummy who is an art teacher!
Not sure if I'll get any scrapping done tonight... Harry was up partying in the early hours and only settled in our bed, which meant this mummy spent an uncomfortable night with a child's size 6 digging into her back whilst clinging for dear life to the very edge of the bed! So it may well be an early night

The collages look fab Lou - will have to share Evie's effort when we do it later in the week.

Congrats on the DT! You deserve it - love your layouts :D

Love the LO xx

Jenga said...

Lovin' that collage idea! Might have to do that with my two :D

Size SIX?!?!?!?!?! No wonder you reckon Joshy is tiny - he is 4 months older and only a size 5 ! Small but cute ;)

Well done on the DT place :)

Congrats on the DT, I think your LOs at the moment are particularly great, so not too surprised! Just wish you could send your mojo this direction occasionally, but I suppose an art teacher's mojo is likely to be a bit more finely tuned than that of a doc who consistently failed art at school! And that took some doing, believe me!
