Happy afternoons...

At the moment I feel like a lady of leisure 3 afternoons a week! Once I drop Harry off at nursery, it's just me and Dinky, and he goes for an afternoon nap.... oh yeah!!! Now I *could* do some housework, but it would be foolhardy to run the risk of waking the baby wouldn't it? Well it's an excuse that works for me, so I'm sticking with it. Besides which I'm going to make the most of the next couple of months being quiet, as after Christmas every afternoon will be busy as I will be looking after another little boy. Actually a cutey little baby.... really looking forward to having a little baby in the house again, with the added benefit of being to hand them over at the end of the day :)
Not really done much to write about... but wanted to share this LO I did yesterday.
Drew has such strange eating habits. He'll eat his picnic dinners in a bizarre order, often taking a bit of something savoury, followed by something sweet and then back to savoury.... bleeuuuurrrggghhhh!!! On this day it was a combination of chocolate muffin and cheesy wotsits... how disgusting is that!

I used the Mica Mists again.... the obsession with misting everything in sight will end soon (I think), but for the moment, if it doesn't move, it gets misted! I used October Afternoon and Bella Blvd papers, cream and kraft card. And yes I used 'that' stamp again!!! I also used the cute little hand stamp that I bought a few years ago at the Harrogate show. No idea who it was by but I just knew I'd need it someday! The chocciness guaranteed label was saved from some food packaging ages ago and was just perfect for this LO.
To tie in with the orange and brown theme, I dipped the edge of some chipboard in orange paint and used it to stamp the stripes.
Right off to squeeze in a little more scrapping time before the school run.

Hi Louise,

I love your layouts, the handmade elements are just fantastic!
The punched circles on the last post look fab, the Jult kit flowers are so pretty, how did you make them?
The tutorial you did for the Sarahs Card blog is great, I really want to have a go at those folded flowers but I wondered if you could let me know the 3 sizes of punch you used. I only have one so need to invest in a couple more but don't want them to be too big.
Thank you so much
