We're still fashionable ;)

We're still busy working on our fashion decade LO's at ScrapBoutique. This week we're working on the 1900. I took these photo's of Lucy a fortnight ago in a garden centre, so sweet!

Last week we were in the 1950's. I used this old photo of my lovely mum for it. Was very happy with how it turned out. They are not my "regular" kinda colours but it's good to do something different every now and then. Hope you like it too Mama.

Some other LO's I made for the Boutique. This one about Lucy (at the boot) using the gorgeous new Bo bunny "Love Shack" papers

Ruby and Lucy at "The Boot" using the lovely My Minds Eye papers..

And this one about Connor his 4th birthday using Cosmo Cricket - Snorkel.

Speaking of "The Boot" (the yearly cricket game)... it was fantastic. No one broke anything, all the achilles's stayed intact and yay, Jol's team (on which Allan was) won, woohoo!! Made it just a little better. It was as fantastic as always. It's just so ice to spend a day in the country, super relaxed, watching a bit of cricket, playing with the kids, eating great food, what more could you want!! Thanks to Emma and Jol, mwah :)

That long weekend (it was Canberra's birthday) we were out a lot. On Sunday we went out on a picnic near the cotter with some friends and their kids. Again, great food, great company, relaxing and the kids playing in the gorgeous surroundings. Chris, Jeremy and Ruby built a dam for the little frogs, Lucy played in the water with Allan and me and older girls just relaxed, chatted and had a lovely time.

The next day we spent the afternoon and early evening in the park, watching Dora, Jessica Mauboy (she was great!!), Kate Miller-Heidke and some other bands. We didn't stay for the hoodoo gurus as the girls were getting tired. It was a fantastic weekend.

This is a photo of Chris and Ruby having a chat and enjoying each other company.

Playing a game at ScrapBoutique now... have a great weekend!!

Happy scrapping :)
