It's so easy to forget the countless changes through childhood. It's only looking at mine that I remember. Emma's trainee teacher moves on today so this is a thank you card. In a few short weeks we prepare for end of term, goodbyes to her teachers and school as she moves up to juniors. As adults we have to deal with change and it's frequently our own choices. But remember being a child? It was quite hard to grow up and move on at times!

So tweet

I think one of the things about scrapping is reminiscing.....remember how small and cute Emma was ( still is but all legs now!) This is a page I did this week. Cute and colourful and a good representation of Emma's personality even then. She's not been quit so bright this week with an er infection and perforated eardrum.Owie. Booked my travel insurance today so I'm all set for my trip to Disneyland Pris now. Scrapping heaven!!! Thanks for popping by and don't forget my blog candy in the sidebar>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Is this not the face of an angelic little cat?? Hmmm...possibly not. She is adorable. Placid, gentle and very affectionate......but the there's a but!! We are currently trying to work out a blue tit + Grace problem. We have a cat who sadly does what cats do. Hunts. So far it's always been rodents :-( but not too frequently. She has never brought home a bird. I find the rodents awful (makes me sad awful) but I can just about handle that, if it was birds I would be gutted. Which has never happened. But now there is a dilemma. A bird box, which DH just popped on the fence ages ago is now home to this....
(Not the original picture)
So there's the question. She is aware of their presence- how do I keep her away?? We've put up wire. I guess I'll just have to have a broom ready!! I want to scrapbook the babies!!

Bright skies

All fair weather here! How's your neck of the woods?? I have decided I want more company here- so when I have photographed it, I will do a little give way! Watch this space! In the meantime a card- using some of the paper I'll have in my giveaway. ( Not the exact same stuff obviously- I've used that!!)

Bank Holiday Bliss!

Today I made a cake ( please ignore my filthy grout btw!!) a cake for  friend. She was celebrating her 21st wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time at her home and I met a friend of hers who liked my facebook page . It's amazing how small the world wide web can be! Here's a card from some of my boy to man page...
Had lots of spares to work with. Had a lovely family picnic yesterday and my niece filmed Dave in  potential disaster/ you've been framed moment!! Best bit of the weekend though?? Booked a trip to Disneyland Paris!! Whoop whoop! Happy days!

A very recent one

it's all about a boy today. My boy, just back from his first proper trip from home at age 9. Like this layout says, he's growing up! Scary stuff. Although I'm glad he's not to old for numerous exchanges of cuddles. Lots of cards to follow from the scraps on this page! TFL xx
