Summer Fetes, Eco Park and Cropping!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/14/2008 02:54:00 PM
I haven't stopped these past few days, which is why the lack of blogging!. Friday Lilly had a school trip at Eco Park in Milton Keynes, and I was a parent helper. I absolutely loved it there and so did the children. The weather held until we headed for the coach, and i found a use for an empty carrier bag (wearing it as a hat),which left a roar of laughter from 25 little ones!. I then had a meeting with a friend, whose photos I took of her beauty salon. I am really pleased with them and so is she. Meeting up again Thursday so we can start designing the website.

Friday night the heavens opened and 9 drowned scrappers piled into the village hall for our first evening crop. We had such a good evening, we are doing it all again in August complete with a take out, hehehe.

Saturday was our village fete and I was helping with the setting up. De-weeded the outside of the village hall to tidy it up and then we put up the gazebos in the field. Coconut Shire and Tin Alley all ready to go for 2.30pm, and Izzy even set up her first brick a brac stall. The weather remained dry and I reckon most of the village turned out for the fun. Izzy took a small fortune and now wants to move up to a car boot sale. I would like to say she is an entrepreneur in the making, BUT, Izzy spends her money as fast as she makes it, returning home with a pair of size 4 black boots, a pair of slippers 3 handbags, several books and cuddly toys and a remote control dog for the arm of the sofa!!

Sunday was a slightly more chilled day, and we headed out to the local car boot sale to show Izzy what they are all about. We then headed off to a local pub for lunch, and after we stopped off at the river for ice cream and a stroll.

On the creative front, Pencil Lines went live last night and I used my 365 photos, "see no evil....." for layout 26 of my 365 challenge and this weeks Pencil Lines sketch.
Supplies are Collage Press and My Minds Eye papers. I punched flowers for added dimension.

My monthly project for Easy Craft Projects has gone live as well. I did a simple card using Basic Grey papers.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend, I will leave you with snippets lyrics from a Pink song, especially for you Dawn :)

Dear Mr. President,Come take a walk with me.
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me.
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly.
How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You'd never take a walk with me.
Would you?

Hugs and thanks for stopping by
Anna x
