Cousins, conkers and layouts!

Good evening :). i hope you are having a lovely weekend so far? We have been out shoe shopping for both of the girls today, they both needed new school shoes........already!!! Gosh, we have only just gone back to schhol it seems and they have both worn through their eh!!!!
Anyway, I have a couple of layouts to share.
The first one is using some older Scenic Route papers( yummy!) a little bit of Basic Grey, lots of brads, some AC thickers, a blossom, buttons and a butterfly cut and embossed with my sidekick. I punched some holes and threaded raffia around the edge of the layout and drybrushed cream acrylic paint all around the edge of the layout.

A couple of close ups to show the layers and all the brads and bits and bobs.

This layout uses papers from My Little Shoebox and is all about a 2 storey house we bought for Lauren when she was small and it lives at the end of our garden( I just love the little bay window!)

A little close that cheeky grin lauren!!

A couple of weekends ago I took Lauren, Chloe and 2 of their cousins out for a couple or so hours. We went to a couple of playgrounds and the pond. At the first playground there were some Horse Chestnut trees and the kids all went round cracking open the conker shells and built up a little stash pile.
Oliver was fascinated by the teeny, tiny, little brown conker case that was growing out the top of the other one.

Proud of their haul of conkers ( even though some were still on the creamy side so not really ready yet.)

Just *TYRED* of hanging around......( yeah...I know...pitiful joke lol)

Ooooh yummy mini muffins! Can you spot who didn't get one....he!he!he! ( no children were hurt or intentioanlly upset in the making of this blog post!)

Right, just off to get ready to go and see the town fireworks and procession....enjoy your evening whatever you are up to.
Warmest wishes Anita..xxxxx
