*Riding the Bumper Cars*

Happy weekend scrapping everyone, I have been trying to finish of some projects this weekend (one being Feb's Document 2011), but I will hopefully share them with you later in the week!

I was totally inspired by Shimelle's landscape sketch this week so created this page. I love landscape sized photos but rarely would put two together on a page, so this sketch was just perfect!
We all went to the fair last weekend, and Taye completely loved going on the bumper cars with my dad! He didn't even mind when he bumped his head, he just wanted the car to go faster!
Happy Sunday x

*My little Birthday boy*

Hi my lovelies, sorry about the irregularity of my posting! I'll work on that I promise. So this Lo was based on the fab sketch for Sarah's Cards March challenge which you can find here
I think that this is my first layout that I have done using one of their sketches but the chance for a £10 e-voucher to spend in the shop is amazing, as I have my eye on quite a lot of the new products from CHA x

These pictures were taken in the morning of Taye's birthday.
Martha Stewart butterfly punch, of course, with a 7Gypsies journaling tag

Thanks for stopping by x

Shimelle's Sketch

Hi my lovelies. Just wanted to share this LO with you, based on this sketch from Shimelle. I was really inspired by these My Minds Eye 'Quite Contrary' papers and thought that I would use them with these pictures of Taye playing with my dads old scalectric set (have I spelled that right?)
Used a cute grand adhesion sticker from K&Co
Sorry, this picture isn't very clear, but didn't have much time to take photos with my proper camera. The little owl was cut from some cute wrapping paper and the letter stickers are.. um.. Thickers of course...
Also wanted to show you this card that I made for a commission. It was for a man who has just got a job in a big computer company! Quite like how it turned out actually x
anyway, see you soon

*Taye is 4*

Wow, what a busy weekend! Taye turned 4 yesterday! Really don't know where that time has gone. He had his party at an indoor play centre with his friends from Pre-School yesterday and had another friend party that he went to on Saturday.

He had so many wonderful presents that he was still opening them this morning. Now I just have to work out where to put everything. x

Mum made 2 Octonauts cakes, one for the party and another for home x
And on another note, here are a few cards I made before the weekend. I really want to start making more cards again.

Sketch 227

This baby photo of Taye has been sitting on my desk, waiting to be scrapped for ages, so when I saw this sketch over at Pencil Lines, I knew it would be perfect!
I love how pink and podgey he looked at only 2 days old (I think.)
One of the night nurses in the hospital looked after him so that I could rest, when I woke up I noticed that she had given him this little hat, and I thought that he looked like a little smurf! Cute x

*A sketch to share*

Hello my lovelies, just a quickie to share with you my LO for Shimelle's SOTW which you can see here. I took these pics on my iPhone so please excuse the focus and pretend that the cardstock is a bright sunshine yellow (which it is I promise) This is a really fun layout, that I have been lovingly working on it for a few nights.
These (Bright Red) Mickey Mouse sequins were found in some packaging from the Disney store x cute x
Used a mix of Black foam and glitter Thickers! Don't think I have ever used so many on one page before! It hurt a little if I'm honest! lol
Thanks for looking x

Taye's new school

Taye's pre-school has recently had a bit of a refurbishment so I took this pic when I picked him up earlier x
