Sketch & Scrap plus a sneaky one shh!

Its that time of the month again to upload our Lo's for the Sketch & Scrap challenge. This month we had this sketch to inspire us set by the lovely Sandra

Heres my interpretation of the sketch. The photo is of Buster after his busy afternoon playing with Ducky Poo. I also set myself a challenge to use old papers I've had since I started scrapbooking but have never used

Now for the sneaky one! I did a Lo at the wkend of one of my favorite pics of Ian when he was little. When I finished it though he insisted that it doesnt go onto UKS as he doesnt want everyone see him when he was little... so instead I'm going to post it here! Shh its a secret!

I got the idea of the photo mount from a Lo by Kirsty Maluga in an old issue of Scrapbook magazine which is where the free American Crafts papers also came from. Remember not a word!

Latest Purchases

I've been both good and bad lately. Good in the sense that I have resisted buying anymore stash, but bad in that I've been buying other things instead hehe!

First up are a couple of new additions to my Momiji doll collection. There is a new range out called the Book Club which these two belong to. Danielle "enjoys reading cook books and dreams of becoming a pastry chef", while Alex "enjoys reading about magic and predicting the future."

The other thing I brought is a new laptop bag. We've been looking for a new one for a little while, Ian wanted one with super cars on I said no, I wanted a Twilight Edward Cullen one he said no! So I was surprised when he agreed to this one ...

A Bon Jovi bag!!!!! I'm a happy bunny! x

Ducky Poo

Probably not the best choice of title but all will become clear later lol!

As I said in my last post I've recently joined the lovely ladies in Sketch & Scrap. Today is the first day of uploading our interpretations of this months sketch and here is mine..

 The photos, which aren't great as they were taken on the Iphone, were taken during one of our walks in Wakerley Woods. There are a variety of different trees as you would expect with woods lol, and some places you could easily think you've gotten lost and ended up in Forks! The papers are a mixture of My Minds Eye papers I think, Jewelery Box thickers and trees from DCWV Green Stack.

Now back to the title. The inlaws have just come back from a week in the Lakes and while we got the usually box of biscuits Buster was given a new duck toy which he loves! Its a cuddly duck which squeeks when you squeeze it. He spent all of yesterday afternoon throwing it around the house trying to "kill" it. I tried to take a photo of him mid "kill" without success as he wouldnt stand still or you had to keep ducking (lol) as a duck flew over your head! I did manage to get this snap of him pooped on the sofa bless him!
