My adopted brother got married

So ok we are not really related - but we kinda adopted each other years ago - best mates and although we have both travelled different paths since then I have always thought of him with such fondness. Well fantastic news - an envelope dropped on our doormat containing a piccie of him and his good lady who I have yet to meet and wow - the cheeky little monkeys have gone and got married without telling anyone and although I am gutted to have missed the official do like a lot of other people I would imagine I am delighted that we are going to the big official do shortly - I can't wait will be fab. Anyway I have just done this for them

Hope you both like it if you are reading

Have been very busy this evening

Straight after work today DD had her friend over to play which was fun - too cold for the pool today so they asked if they could do crafting so I got the camera out and took lots of piccies of them both playing and then uploaded and printed two copies of everything off small size - we then made two minibooks identical and then they stuck their photos and lots of flowers and bits and pieces to them both - think I enjoyed it as much as they did.

After that was craft club and I managed to get 2 12 by 12s done - and then just now I have been playing with digiscrapping again - now for some reason it seems I have been mainly doing digi scraps of my dd but paper layouts of my ds - have no diea why - it has just turned out that why - will have to address the balance in the next scrap session. Anyway here goes the digi one for tonight

there's more

I am having so much fun doing this - wish I had started ages ago - its quick and easy and fun. I think it will run alongside my normal scrapping as nothing beats the texture (as Sally would say) but I have so many piccies to scrap it will help speed things up!!! Anyway gotta run - taxi service to cricket in 10 mins...TTFN!

back to include the last one of the day ....heres someone I used to know

Look at what I have been doing this evening

I have finally ventured into the world of digi scrapping - have been looking at it for a while - but have decided to dip my toe in tonight and this is my first attempt...

This was taken at dd's last sports day at preschool - quite quirky really as when she first started ds was also there and they did their first sports day together - she was so shy he ran with her when it was her turn - bless him. Well this time - the first sports day had been cancelled due to inclement weather so the following thursday my sons school had closed a day early for the summer holidays so he was able to attend her sports day - when we got there - the teachers said that siblings could join in - so we started her at preschool with her big brother and we finished it with her by side too - aint that nice!!!

and second

This is when my baby first went to school for an official visit in June - ready for starting in September - she has been many a time with her big brother but this is the first time as a future pupil - sniff sniff - where's that darned pack of tissues!!!

Then onto my third attempt - hey I am enjoying myself here

This was taken at Grandmas - we were playing out in the garden with a bottle of bubbles and she decided to be a little madam and have a sulky so I told her as we often do when she has a little strop that she must have her crabby pants on today - not impressed - definitely didnt like it - grumped even more for a while until she got over it - lol!!! Bless her!

I couldn't do the above one without balancing it out and showing you her beautiful smile - it melts my heart even on the most haphazard of days.

It has taken me a while to figure out how to upload the piccies of my digital layouts but hey now I have done it - I am thrilled. It is now nearly 1 am - I am gonna be so tired tomorrow - so nighty night all
