A layout....a haircut....and a water fight!

**WARNING** this is a heavy photo post ok..........
.......... still here? Right ok, then I shall start with a layout. This is one I made a few weeks ago and is using papers from the American Crafts 'Classics' Range. I just fell in love with the colours, especially the tealy/turq one......

I cut the flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die, curled the edges of the petals and then popped an 8mm Teal half pearl into the centre.

I paper pricked the swirly pattern onto the paper and then covered each prickhole with some lush Teal Liquid Pearls which I bought from the wide range of colours at Cardinal Colours

These papers were really lovely to work with, some of them have a pearlescant finish to them and all of them are double sided.

Now onto the haircut!
Chloe has been growing her hair for what seems like an absolute age and it had grown to a fairly long you can see here!

On tuesday we went to my cousins house for a hair cut.........
and this is what she came out with!!!!!! Gorgeous eh :)

Although I am not sure how much I like her looking older than her years

Yesterday she had her best friend round for the day and they were up to various the day went on it got hotter and hotter.....

so what better way to end it than with a water fight!!!

The water guns came out and battle commenced!

And then it was a case of filling a jug and emptying it! ( warm water of course!!)

Then back to the guns again....before they ended up actually throwing buckets of water at each other LOL....a good time was had by all.

We also had some great fun with bubbles and a hand made bubble maker....will share that at a later date.
Off to cut hubby's hair now and then to the hospital to visit my Dad before we hit the beach for the evening and enjoy fish and chips.....
Wishing you a lovely evening too ( and wondering why it is that weekends pass so darned quick and yet weekdays at work do not!!!!!)

Warmest wishes Anita..xxxx


  1. Lovely layout Anita.
    Haircut really suits Chloe, so grown up.
    Loks like they had a fantastic time.
    Have a great evening. xxx

  2. Beautiful layout, the colours in that range are fantastic! I love the pearls, I have a bit of an obsession with the liquid pearls at the moment but don't have a Teal colour, think I will have to get one though as it is gorgeous! :)

  3. Fab layout and your liquid pearls are lovely - I must keep practising with mine as they never go to nice pearl shapes just pointy dots - any tips will be appreciated.

    Gosh doesn't that hairstyle change her - she looks so grown up.

    Didn't realise Dad was in hospital, hope he's out now and feeling better?

    One and a bit more days to go - see you then!

  5. Gorgeous layout Anita :) Cracking photos of the water fight. Loving the new hair do, very glamourous :)
