Finished work!

I am officially on holiday! How cool is that. I have 9 days of fun ahead of me and can't wait. Especially as Alex has been on such good form these past couple of days. He comes out with constant chatter which is thoroughly entertaining and has started singing nursery rhymes to us. Last night we were singing 'The Hokey Kokey' and tonight it was 'Incy Wincy Spider'. We have been dancing round the house, playing with cars in the garage and splashing in the bath. This evening in his bath for the first time when I asked Alex to smile for the camera he actually did. I love that cheesy grin!
Crafting wise I have made a card following this weeks Sketch and Stash sketch. I have used papers which came from a scrapbooking magazine about 2 years ago, A Penny Black Stickeroo (a gift about 1 year ago), some buttons from my Gran's button box and a ribbon she gave me this weekend. The only new thing on the card is the peel off wording, so this was a great way of using up old stash. The card also fits with the CCC challenge this week which is to use a recipe of three buttons, two papers and one ribbon.
I have also completed a scrapbook layout following this weeks Stuck sketch. The layout is entitled 'The great Parple Game' and uses Bazzil, Doodlebug, Sassafrass lass & American Traditional papers/cardstock, Doodlebug design letter stickers, Papermania swirl stickers and Anitas star stickers. The journalling reads 'Alex has invented a new game which he finds hillarious. The basis of the game is to blow a raspberry against whatever Alex decides e.g. 'Mummy parple wall' or 'Alex parple Daddy hand' which are followed by loud giggles. July '09'.
As usual I would love to know what you think of my crafting. Check back later in the week for photos of our holiday and have a lovely weekend everyone.
