Weekend Stuff

Guess what we did today? Well, the kids actually, I was just a spectator...


Yep! They had their first beach swim of the season! These crazy kids nagged me all day about how hot it was, and how they wanted to swim at the beach, and I finally agreed. Apparently the water was just a bit cold (it is still winter after all!)


And they came running out squealing...


But once they got used to it, they ended up swimming for about an hour. There were loads of people around on the beach, but only a handful of kids were actually brave enough to swim. The adults weren't that silly! It was really flat today too, with no waves, so it was a good day to let the kids just go for it without having to be in the water with them.

And I have managed to scrap just one lonely little layout over the weekend. I did this one for a From Screen 2 Scrap challenge. I had to use a baby photo, stripes and a handmade title...


This layout is all about how I thought poor Emily was going to be a boy, so I only ended up taking boy clothes to hospital with me. It was such a nice surprise to have a girl!!! I was going to name her Harry, and I even had Jack saying it, lol. I used lots of Purple Pumpkin goodies on this layout. I even managed to get 6 buttons on there!


And I have now discovered I actually like kraft paper!!! I never liked it before, but I bought some at Blossies the other day, and now I LOVE it!!! Think I need to get me some more of that!!

Hope you've had a fabulous weekend :)

Great layout Sam....love the way you've painting the circle. I'm going to copy that idea - hope you don't mind!

I can't believe your kiddies went swimming! It was a nice day down here but definitely not swimming weather!

Lol, I know when I was a kid we could swim in almost any temperature. :)
Your layout looks fantastic Sam! Love the pink paint splatters and all the gorgeous embellies. AND the Kraft! :)

Your kids are very brave.We had a lovely day here too but no way are we going to the beach.
You're layout is perfect! I love how you used all those buttons. I've used so many of mine already, will be posting the layouts over the next couple of weeks for my DT work. Thanks for sharing all these ideas!!
