Gorgeous Day!

Wow! Sun was out today and it was warm! Oliver was off school due to his school being used as a polling station (as if they can't find any other venue and have to disrupt school time!!!) Luckily Zac's preschool wasn't disrupted. After dropping Zac off, went off to Melbricks Garden Centre to mootch around the craft area. Ohhh they have since upgraded that section and it's now selling quite a fair bit of scrapping stuff, mostly Making Memories and Paper Mania (Docraft's own brand). I picked up a pack of white textured cardstock as I do use them a fair bit and also a box of 10mm size brads from Dovecraft. I was very restricted in my purchase!

Ohhh, some lovely stash from Papermaze arrived today! Yummy papers from Urban Lily latest collection and the Freestyle book! God that book absolutely rock! It's so my style of scrapping and I'll be picking up some great ideas from there for sure! It takes playing with papers to a new level and show there is really no limit to scrapping! That's why I do it.... there is no rules, no regulations and no one way of doing it. You do whatever you want to a piece of paper and photograph! And the gals at Freestyle shows you exactly that!!!

Spend the afternoon with the boys doing painting, finger painting to be exact! Got them to paint their hands and stick it onto paper. I'll be doing a LO with those hands! They had fun getting themselves dirty. Made them do it at the 'treehouse' (it's actually a garden jungle gym but treehouse has a nicer ring to it!) Later they had their ice lolly there too.

Had to play with my stash and did a LO (entitled Lunch @ Treehouse) using the Urban Lily Gypsy papers. Been having a scrapper's block the last few days and took some inspiration from the Freestyle book. Went for a simple style using colour blocking and doodling inspired by Brenda-Mae Teo (pg 50 of Freestyle). Picture of the boys having their lunch at the treehouse in the garden. Actually not a treehouse but so-called as it almost resembles one and the boys love it as their little hideaway! It was such a sunny day and they had no inclination of coming indoors to have their lunch so lunch had to go to them instead! Conchos on the LO reads Lunch (not sure why it doesn't show up in the scan!). Gosh, got loads of photos to scrap but lacking inspiration!!!
