Hi, hope you've had a good week

I'm really glad it's the weekend now though!  I dropped my eldest to his cub scout camp tonight I just hope he'll be OK :-)  They are sleeping under canvas so I hope it doesn't get too cold.  And when I say under canvas, I mean under canvas - those green safari style tents - the sort that that I remember from when I was in the Girl Guides (girls weren't allowed in the scouts then) 30 years ago .  Honestly I'm impressed that they haven't been eaten by moths by now, LOL!  It's starting to spit here so I'm praying they are actually still waterproof too :-)

Anyway, cos I miss him here's a LO of him

I love this photo - it show's his quirky side :-)

This was done earlier in the year in one of the Scrapbook Sisters fortnightly classes.  The background is stamped all over with laods of letters from one of the Woodware sets that were randomly(ish) stuck onto an acrylic block.  I love this idea as it sets the theme of the page perfectly, and uses the alphabet stamps that we all have in a totally different way

I also love the use of the embroidery thread as it sets off the pic nicely, but is really subtle :-)

We used another couple of alphabet stamps for the title, but I have no idea what ones they are, but i'd love to know if anyone has any clues!

Trying to think of adjectives for my son was pretty easy for most of the letters, but some of the less used letters were a bit of a struggle, but it was fun to do and I think it's one of those pages that capture my thoughts of him at the time - I wonder what words I'd pick if I did this page again in a couple of years?

As for the rest of the weekend, I'm hoping to do some crafting, maybe potter in the garden - hope you have a great one whatever you get up to

Thanks for looking

Sue xx
