Well... what a fun few days have been had... first a win by the Saints on the weekend and a lovely day at the footy with a couple of friends of mine and or kids, and then a bit of scrapping too!
Sunday was Ollie's first time at Subi Oval and his first proper game of AFL! Now I must emphasise that Ollie is a fellow Saints supporter and has been since even before he was born. The first song that was sung to him when he was just minutes old was the Saints club song! So I dressed him in the Saints colours for the big game. To be fair to James, though, I let him wear his Eagles scarf. Next time I won't be so kind cos by then I'll have bought Ollie his very own Saints scarf!
Here's a few pics of us at the game;
James 'rescued' me from the wiggly kiddos just after half time, which was really sweet of him. It allowed me to actually watch the game - if I didn't watch closely I'd miss the goals cos being an Eagles home game, hardly anyone cheered when they scored! I missed heaps while I had the kids there with me. Needless to say, the crowd was pretty quiet for much of the second half of the game... the Saints smashed the Eagles!!! Yay!!! My friends weren't too impressed, especially because I made the most of the chance to rub it in!!! LOL!
The last two nights I have been working on my entry for this week's challenge at the Studio blog. The theme was Spring. Here's what I came up with;
Spring Sunshine Layout
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - American Crafts, Doily - Little Yellow Bicycle, Chipboard - American Crafts, Flower - Imaginisce, Vine - Prima, Rub-ons - American Crafts, Pearls - Kaiser, Brown machine thread, Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart Crafts, Dimensional glaze - Ranger, Glitter - unknown, Font - NSimSun.
I am really really hoping that I might win the challenge this week. The prize is two AC patterned albums! AC albums are my fave and the only ones I buy. I have two patterned albums on layby at the moment, but a couple more would definitely not go to waste! Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!!!
Regardless, this layout is quite cool in that it uses a few things I don't normally do - I've used glitter (I hate glitter!!!), layered embellishments, a plain cardstock background, and stitching that is actually straight!!! Plus it has been a long time since I've used Glossy Accents for anything but as a glue, but for this layout I used it on the butterflies to make them shiny and glittery.
That's it from me for today. Happy hump day!!!
