Firstly a page of Josh in Florida last year having fun on the zip wire...
These pictures are from a trip to Anglesey last year when Josh was in his own world sculpting on the beach...

Last Thursday it was Ladies' evening at school to raise funds for the PTA. This is always a great event with shopping, drinking and pampering on offer. I chose to have my hair put up by a local hairdresser and would definitely do it again. I can't believe how different I look!
Apologies for the lack of posts - I will be back with more later this week.

I've now finished off another lay out that was half finished having finally managed to cut all the flowers for the bottom part whilst watching X Factor on Saturday! I have scrapped a photo of Alex from holiday this year and captured the story of her songwriting for her leavers assembly in July. A fact she kept secret from me until the day and which when I read her name and heard it sung made me cry...well start crying again really as the whole assembly was very emotional! The page is a scraplift from Cathy from the Design Team's booklet.

We took off to find the Quinta Arboretum yesterday and get some fresh air and enjoy the Autumn colours. There were some gorgeous trees like this one...
and this one...
a beatiful avenue of poplars...
and we had some fun throwing leaves at the kids. Josh enjoyed it to the full
Alex was not so sure! Then we went to the pub next door for refreshment and Alex made a new friend! There were loads of ghosts and goulies all over the place ready for a ghost walk on the Sunday.
And Tony took this fab photo which Josh managed to mess up!
I managed to finish this off this week which was a class by the lovely and talented Cathy which I did at the Pink Booby crop the other weekend. The photos I've used aren't fantastic but they suit the feel of the page and remind me of a lovely Summers' afternoon spent watching Alex, Josh, Immy and Max running, doing roly polys and leap frogging on the grass at Speke Hall. Happy memories.
Oh and I also managed to get tickets to see these fine musicians next June. It only took 9 hours to get through and there were three of us trying! I think it will be worth all the effort and every penny though!

Whilst there I also picked up another lot of wool and a pattern to make Alex a waistcoat.
I have finished the back and both fronts, just need to put it all together now and do the yoke! Have really enjoyed picking up my needles again :)

I also wanted to share this fab photo of the girls and I in the Absolut Ice Bar in London the other weekend. We had a fabulous three days shopping, eating, a show, laughing (and crying) lots and a bit of drinking too! I am so lucky to have such a fantastic group of friends...
Work is full on at the moment so it's nice to finally get a day off to catch up on some things, like finishing off my blog! Today I have made it look pretty and added some extra bits on the right so think I am ready to share it with the world!

Hopefully I can show the rest soon when I have found time to finish them!

This blog is for me to share some of my scrapbooking with the world and also some bits of family life. It is for sharing our world with family and friends and it will also act as a record of our lives in the years to come.
So here goes....
