Hi Friends,

Just a quick post to share a layout - seems like ages since i shared a layout on here. This one features Lucy in the springtime daffodils. This was done for the C'est Magnifique sketch challenge for Sept- although i never got round to entering it! I felt that there was something missing - it didn;t look quite right so i filed it away to come back to and fix but didn;t get round to it in time. Now when i look at it i think it looks fine the way that it is- go figure!!

This one uses some more of one of my favourite ranges- BoBunny - Country Garden- the soft pinks jazzed up with some beautiful flowers from Scrap It Simple.

Speaking of Scrap It Simple- the lovely Hilary has reached 400 blogposts on her personal blog and is giving everyone the chance to win some goodies from her store. So why not hop on over to be in with a chance to win! Hilary - Scrapbookng from the Heart. She makes the most beautiful cards and layouts using Kaisercraft products and the gorgeous Green Tara and Manor House flowers that she stocks in her shop. Go have a peek!

It has been another busy weekend inn our household- we had another Halloween party on Friday night - another excuse to dress up and party! The girls had a blast- just 2 photos this time i promise!

Lucy in her other outfit!!

The 3 big girls- Hollie refuses to wear costumes and sticks with the pretty dresses!

We had a lovely family day today- we went out to Simons brothers farm at Lincoln and had some professional photos taken of the whole family- the 3 brothers families and also some English yobbos!!! (Simon's cousins). So we had a huge family photo with all 21 of us - some with Nana and her 10 grandchildren- as well as our nuclear family etc. The photographer was excellent- a Russian guy called Andy Kochenko- he specialises in wedding photography but does it all. I can't wait to see the photos - especially the ones taken amongst the haybales in the barn!

We played some T-Ball with all the kids and had a few wines sitting out in the sun while the kids ran around - and then a lovely BBQ tea. It was lovely to all be together in one place! The photos aren't great but you get the idea!

Hope that you have enjoyed your weekend and i will be back in a couple of days to share some more!
