Car woes!

Our car developed the most horrendous grinding noise which you could also feel coming up through the clutch.  It turned out that it needed a new clutch, fly wheel and cylinder and it has taken 2 days to repair (and that is without the suspension which also will need fixing at some point) so much to Alex's delight we have been in a succession of buses, friends cars and taxis to get us to and from work and nursery.  Alex is in good form and entertaining us no end with his antics.  The latest amusement has been a return to his sunglasses obsession - it doesn't matter whether he is just out of his bath or in his pyjamas, he will wear them!
Crafting wise I have made a wedding anniversary card for Tim.  This is my first ever Easel card, and as usual with me I wasn't going to just do the standard design..I had to adapt it in someway!  In this case it was to use a heart instead of a plan square background.  This fits with the flourishes and pearls theme for Ooh La La, and the xtra special challenge from MTTC.
I also made a scrapbook layout following this weeks Sketchy Thursday Sketch, the theme of mixed Alphas from Scrap and Stamp (the stars in the corners are stamped), the stars theme from Crazy challenge, the OCC theme of decorated corners and I used the line 'Smile just to see the smile upon your face' as part of my journalling from the song 'I could not ask for more' which is the song for this weeks Scrap it with a song.  As such this layout also fits with the Pollycraft theme of using a song as inspiration and the SCSC of including a quote.  My journalling reads 'It makes me smile just to see the smile upon your face. Lydgate park, Crookes, April 2010'.  All the papers and embellishments are from Basic Grey. As usual I would love to know what you think.  Have a great weekend everyone.
Love,
Caro
