First day down...

Well, first half day... of the Easter holidays that is! And we have come through relatively unscathed.

You'd think however, that my children were allergic to the sun with the amount of complaints I've had about having to go outside and play!!! 

Starting to get Craig's stuff ready to go to camp on Monday - he's off to Kirkham with the Boys' Brigade until Saturday and he's really looking forward to it. We've taken the week off too so that poor Scott doesn't get sent to the After School Holiday club while his brother gets to enjoy himself!

Onto today's card. I've made this for one of the girls at work whose last day it was today as she stops for her maternity leave. I used Ice Cream and Pickles from Saturated Canary - as soon as I saw this image I knew it would be perfect for the occassion. It's a pity she doesn't have Skittles on her ice cream too as Lynn really likes those ;)

Unfortunately I was off today as I went to the school service and then picked the boys up so I'm hoping she liked her card!

You will notice I've added an arty shot too - that's thanks to Cass, but this is the first time I've put one along with the main picture too.

Hi Susan, Wonderful colouring on this one - love how you've done her hair!

Great layout as well.

Loved this SC image from first time I saw it, but no reason to buy it so it doesn't live on my 'puter!

Hope you survive the hols - Emily broke up today as well and doesn't go back for 2 weeks and 1 day!

Have a fab weekend,
Sarah
