It's a girl hair thing...

Cassandra is now 8 and I'll be honest in that I've never really been able to do her hair in lovely ways like some of her friends.

No longer!  I've enrolled myself on a hair course and so last week and this week Cassie has gone to school with her hair in a French plait and today Dutch braids!

Get me!!!

The Scrapbook Room - Freaky Fast Formula challenge - Bundle!

I've never done this before, but I just absolutely LOVE this idea of being given paper measurements - makes things soo much easier and fun!
So the idea is to use the measurements on papers given and then create a layout with them.
I really enjoyed doing this and will so be taking part in the challenge again.

Details of the challenge found on their blog

Entries have to be uploaded to The Scrapbook Room's Facebook page


The Scrapbook Room: Jump Start Sketch challenge - Cheeky

So this is layout is a sketch challenge that's from The Scrapbook Room.

Gotta love my cheeky girlie!

Sketch n Scrap sketch challenge 136 AND Archiscraps "Use Lots of" challenge - Plait!

So another day spent scrappin' at Mum's meant that I managed to complete a few more challenges..

I used the sketch from Sketch n Scrap for this layout of Cassandra.  I'm trying to fill my scrapbook gaps and this one goes back to 2012 - when she was only 3!
I was quite pleased I managed to colour co-ordinate the papers and flowers to her dress!

Closing date is 30th September


I'm also entering this layout into Archiscraps September challenge to use "Lots of something" - mine being the flowers on my layout!

End of the month is closing date for this one

Lee's birthday...

Today was Lee's birthday and I know my hubby well, although Alex nearly fought me in giving this awesome Lego set to Lee as he wanted it for himself!
After the football team's match this morning, and Cassandra's new dancing, we all ventured into town to have yummy dessert at Creams.

Me, I had a cup of tea!

Happy happy birthday Lee, love you lots!!
