Fun Firework weekend!

Well we have had a lovely weekend which included Alex enjoying his first ever sparklers in our back garden.  He was very good with them and really enjoyed every minute of it.  We didn't go out to a big fireworks display because they are mostly too late for Alex, but we didn't need to. By sitting at his bedroom window sill we got the best view of about 4 local displays and several more that were further away...perfect! 
Today as part of Tim's birthday celebrations (his birthday is later this week), we went 10 pin bowling for the first time in about 9 years. We all really enjoyed every minute of it, although poor Tim was exhausted afterwards (having beaten Alex and me rather spectacularly!). Alex thought this was a great way to spend time with us both and wanted to go back again this afternoon!
Instead we made the most of the nice weather and went to the park before coming back to bake and ice Tim's birthday cake!
Crafting wise I haven't had time to do much having been so busy with organising birthday things and entertaining Alex.  I did manage to make my design team entry for Quirky Crafts though.  The challenge this week was set by Cazzy and was 'Attitude'. We were given images from the Stamping Boutique (this weeks sponsor) to work with and I used Art Doll.  I thought she looked a bit like a teenage fairy with an attitude to match so coloured her accordingly! I decided to make a fatbook page with her, using Hot off the press papers, an inkadinkado swirls stamp, buttons, bling, and ribbon. I used sakura stardust for sparkle on her wings, and silver on her crown.  I am also entering this into stamp with fun 'buttons', Fresh Brewed 'anything goes', Simon says stamp 'buttons', Stampavie 'Anything goes', Aud sentiments 'make us laugh' and Paperplay 'buttons'. That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
