And of course I've been using the I-top again to make these brads for the flower centres. I am so addicted to that thing! I've used ribbon to cover a couple of these brads, and the other day I covered some with crepe paper. They turned out great!
Now, Miss Emily has been nagging me to put some of her "work" onto my blog too, so here is a layout she created yesterday...
Don't you just love her journalling? It's so her, lol. She really does love animals and bugs. Before dinner tonight she asked me if she could bring her pet bug inside! "What pet bug?!" is what I said, and she showed me a little bowl filled with grass and leaves with a little shiny bug in it. She said she found him sleeping but I think it is actually dead, but I didnt have the heart to tell her that, so he is now "sleeping" in his little bowl in the bathroom.
Yesterday Mum and I took the kids to the beach, so they could use their new nets to catch some fish. My niece is staying up here at the moment so the kids are really loving having someone else to play with. The girls caught a couple of small toad fish, which they put into a bucket, but Em wouldnt leave them alone and kept picking them up out of the bucket and holding them. There's no way I would be touching one of those things but she thought they were beautiful. Jack wouldn't touch them either, lol. When Em went to put them back into the water, and she wouldnt leave them til they had swum out into the waves "in case an eagle flew down and got them". She is so sweet.
I got a few cute photos too, although the kids weren't very co-operative, they were too busy having fun!
Jack squinting into the sun again. Only a couple of pics of him without his eyes closed!
The poor fish being "petted" yet again by Emily.
The two girls patting the fish while Jack looks on in disgust.
Sun's going down, time to go home. We really love living here :)
