Parents, scrapping, missed deadlines and poorly sickness!

The title pretty much sums up the past week in this house! My mum and dad came to stay for a few days which was lovely... even though I always fall of the diet wagon when they are here! We were hoping for a day at the seaside but it didn't happen due to the good old British weather. We took the boys to Slide and Seek instead, which they enjoyed. They went home on Sunday afternoon so Sunday evening was mine to scrap away...
I fully planned to do the 1st twisted sketch to submit for the DT contest only to realise that I had missed the deadline big time...lol!!! I got it in my head that the deadline was the 26th when in fact it was the 16th... oh well, I had fun playing with the sketch anyhow. Here is the LO I did (after turning the sketch sideways). One of Dinky Doo's first photos which shows him NOT enjoying being weighed! His birth story is on written on a tag book which slides behind the photo. The papers are all from Sarahscards, I bought them on a whim just because they were so pretty and after looking at them a few times wondered why I had bought them as I was unlikely to use them having 3 boys... but I have to say I think they work quite well for this photo.
I have also been scrapping with the July Sarahscards kit, which has some stunning papers in it, and the most adorable chipboard apples... here are a few sneaks of what I have created.
On to the poorly sickness!!! My turn this time and I was struck by a 24 hour bug thing yesterday which rendered me pretty much useless for the whole day :( On the plus side though, when I wasn't throwing up I was fast asleep, so I have had the most sleep ever since I was 7 months pregnant, and my stomach is the flattest it's been since Drew was born... every cloud eh ;)

Well I better go and do something productive, to make up for yesterdays getting nothing done whatsoever. Back soon with Twisted sketch 2.
