I was inspired to do a sketch challenge from docrafts.com i liked the sketch so thought id have a go. I used Bakers Twine to stitch round edge of template. The top photo is me as a baby and the lower photo is Sam when she won her Boots baby competition. I not sure if i have been successful in uploading it for the challenge as i found it a bit difficult to understand the website, oh well another layout done even if i didn't succeed!

 Well had a busy evening last night, as remembered i have four birthdays tomorrow so a last minute panic to make cards and get them in the post.

The one below is for a leap year birthday for my sisters husband who gets a real birthday this year.

Had a lovely day today spent with my fab daughter at the cinema and then visited her dads and my late husbands grave and cleared off the christmas flowers and freshened up with some spring flowers. Hopefully going for a family walk tomorrow with some friends and maybe my lazy sons, get them away from their computers for a couple of hours.

Here are some layouts from Saturday Crop at Scrapbags in Hertford. The first layout was the class kit which i always enjoy as i need a bit of inspiration to get me going as i am not a big planner i just go and do on the day. The pictures are of my daughter Sam after getting soaked on the water rides in Florida she had a bad hair moment!!

The other two pages are at Boggy Creak where we all had a hold of an Alligator except Sam who was too scared to hold it. Well i am thinking of doing my first sketch challenge for docrafts Creativity, i like the look of the sketch so i think i might give it a go....so hopefully ill post the final results shortly.

Well here is my evenings creation, Hubbys valentine card. Hope he appreciates it.
Well its been a cold week after a heavy snowfall last Saturday night, we went down the lane to Throcking to do some sledging I took this photo which I like of hubby and son.
Then later we went for a walk across back fields to Aspenden, Buntingford, Throcking and back home again. Peter took this photo of Sam, Christian and me. It was hard work in the deep snow. Now after a week of trying to stay on my feet and not break a leg in the icy conditions i think its time it warmed up a bit, but oh no it was -11 last night. Well had a nice coffee with my friend Louise this morning. Now I am off to try and make a valentine card/tag for hubby as I have bought him a book for valentine rather then waste money on card he probably wouldn't be bothered about. Hopefully post the finished card later, if i think its good enough for you to view!!
