Another New Year

I guess it's the teacher in me that I still work on an academic year... I can't believe we're well into September already!!! Harry started full time school o Monday, which h is so far really loving. It means that I only have 2 small children at home at any time now, and on some days it's just me and Drew... which is fab! Harry was very excited about starting school and on his first day (which was just a half day) he sat holding his bags all morning just waiting to go.
He's not so keen on the school dinners, so we're going to have to see how that one goes.
A few weeks ago Rob and the boys did a bit of tree surgery, removing all the dead leaves from the Cordyline tree. I got some great photos from the afternoon, and can't wait to scrap the sequence of Drew picking up a snail, studying the snail then realising he didn't like the snail touching him!!! Here are a couple from the sequence.
Harry had the very important job of project manager, so got to wear the high vis vest and hard hat....
After a summer of being scared to go on the trampoline Drew discovered this week that he now REALLY like to bounce. Trouble is we have to lock and hide the keys or he lets himself out to bounce no matter what the weather or the time of the day!!!

On Friday Drew and I had an afternoon in the garden together... he's such a monkey and wouldn't let me take his photo, so out of over 100 photos taken I got lots like this....

I'm not looking...
 I'm still not looking...
 But I did get this cute one of him telling me to go away...
 Then he escaped into the playhouse, so this was taken through the window...
 And I got loads of him hiding behind the playhouse and peeping round at me.... I love this one in particular...
 On the scrapping front... I've recently bought lots of the new yumminess coming into Sarah's Cards. My favourite being the Pink Paislee Phantom range... can't wait to start playing with these. I also bought some MME Lost and Found 2 Breeze papers, which I used for the September sketch challenge over on the Sarah's Cards Blog. I've started to look through some of my old photos to scrap, and decided to use my favourite one of Oliver when he was 5 days old. His first few scrapbooks are really basic as I didn't have any tools or pretty papers, so I feel like I should re-scrap some of the photos so that hi are as nice as Thing 2 and 3's.... it's just my very valid excuse to buy more papers and scrap baby photos!
 


I used the same range of papers for this LO of my lovely friends who got married at the beginning of the month. It was a refreshing change being able to use sparklies for sparklies sake.
Here are a few images of work I've done for the Sarah's Cards Blog. This month I started an Art Journal using kraft envelopes as my base. You can see the blog post here.

I also did this LO using a kraft envelope as a pocket, using these Glitz stamps, which are also in the sale section so you'd be foolish not to get!!!


These LOs were for the July blog post.... but I forgot to blog them on here, because I'm good at being forgetful like that!



Ok, that's it for a few more days/weeks/moths/years... I doubt it'll be the last option, but it's not likely to be the first... lol!!!
