Fab Weekend!!

I do love weddings, parties and a good Christening!! And we have had 2 out of 3 to attend, OK well Izzy did!

Saturday Izzy had a birthday party to go too, and Lilly and I went shopping in Town for Christening gifts and also purchased Lilly's first pair of school shoes, awwwww. Yes my baby soon starts her first day at school. Uniform is hanging in the spare bedroom with pristine white undies and socks, all ready for that BIG day.

Sunday was the christening of Addie and Dean, Annie's children, and we were really pleased to be asked to attend the gathering. I baked my mini Victoria sponges and was photographer for the day and Peter was the videographer. Only problem we had was the weather was not permitting and no outdoor photos were taken, I did though take photos of the ceremony. Both children were as good as gold and no tears or cries were heard.

We then headed over to Annie's house so the children could play for a bit while i scoffed more of Annie scrummy zucchini loaf (much like carrot cake).
We did get one photo outside, and one that both Annie and I have waited 18 months for, a photo of the two of us, and Peter managed a couple and I am so pleased. I now need a decent one of me and Sue as we always end up with the girls taking it and not at a flattering angle!
We headed back home in the afternoon and Peter and I had 40 winks whilst the girls played quietly, bless them.Today I have been catching up with serious deadlines for magazines and Dt work. Received my copy of The Scrapbook Magazine this morning and was really pleased with how an article i wrote looked as well as a layout i had in the DT gallery. This months magazine really does look good and is well worth purchasing.
Here are a couple of the layouts I had published.
The first is Izzy in Cornwall on the beach, used Scrapping Angels July kit for this layout by Upsey Daisy.

The other layout was a BOM layout using Tinkering Inks Westminster collection, and lots of felt flowers.

Last night was Pencil Lines sketch 46 by Vicki Chrisman. I struggled with this layout only because i chose to do a layout with photos of me on with some "deep meaningful" journaling,lol.
I used :

Kraft card stock
Jenni Bowlin papers/chipboard and journaling card
Creative Imagination paper
Stamps away stamps
Foofala buttons

Rusty Pickle rik rak
Angel Kiss flowers

Journaling reads :
Nobody knows but me

That I sometimes cry
If I could pretend that I'm asleep
When my tears start to fall
I peek out from behind these walls
I think nobody knows
Nobody knows but me

by Pink
I have complete 2 dlo, 1 slo, and 1card today, that is a lot of creating in one day for me, i can tell you!. Will show you some sneaks and more layouts tomorrow, i have probably overloaded you all today.
