Am I coming or going?

I really can’t tell this week. I think it is because I haven’t slept properly for weeks, but I am finding it really hard to get my head around things at the moment. I have a new project that I am designing at work which is proving to be really complicated in terms of the sheer number of different factors involved in binding to just one receptor and I have to confess it is doing my head in! On a different note Alex and I have had so much fun in the garden in the past couple of days enjoying the nice weather, which more than makes up for the headaches at work! He has a small obsession with brushes and just loves to use our big outdoor brush to clean the patio then drive his cars over it. He has also enjoyed pouring water from the watering can onto the path to make a puddle to splash in. All good fun! Crafting wise I completed this scrapbook layout about our last trip down to my parents in Somerset. This loosely follows this weeks Pencil Lines sketch by Anna and uses cardstock by Bazzill, Hot off the Press, SEI and dELiSH Bistro, and some Angel kiss flowers cut to fit the corner. The title is ‘Read us a story please’ and the journaling reads ‘Alex and Daniel loved being told stories by Grandma and Grandad, June 2009’. I have also made a card for my brother in laws birthday following this weeks sketch and colour scheme from CCC. It was an interesting challenge which I very much enjoyed. I used papers from Hot off the press and Basic Gray, and the little car in the centre is 3D. As usual I would love to know what you all think. Have a great rest of the week everyone.

Gosh, I seem to have been away from blogland for aaaaaaaaaages.

I can't believe how Alex has changed in the last few weeks, he looks SO much a boy now rather than a toddler.

What beautiful photos you've captured and lovely pages and cards you've made.

Hope to be able to keep up with things again now.
