Allez les bleus!!

What a lovely weekend !! It started well with England winning at rugby on Friday but got even better when France won on Saturday !! We are not actually big sport fans as we would much rather be outside ourselves but we do like watching a good match of rugby ! And this inspired me to do a sketch for A Few of My Favorite Things, where you have to say what is your favorite game. I am pretty sure they meant board game, but never mind ! We got the opportunity to go to Twikenham last year with the children to watch England vs Australia and witness a great victory. We had such a nice day out, kids loved it and the atmosphere in the village was fantastic. I would love to go again to watch a 6 nations match, but it is very difficult to get tickets these days so I think we might just have to watch it on TV instead. Admittedly a lot warmer ! So anyway, here is my lay out.

I have cut a few bits and pieces from one of Andrew's magazine to make this page and had a go at using paint. I still find it hard to be messy ! (although, my friends would laugh because I am a very messy scrapper, I just don't like my pages messy !! )

On Sunday I went to visit a friend in Teddington. I hadn't seen her for three years and it was really lovely to catch up. Kids were very pleased to meet up again and we had a lovely day. My friend is very crafty too, her house is beautiful, decorated with lots of little ornaments and gorgeous pictures of her family. I know she would love scrapbooking, I will just have to convince her !!

Anyway, house work is calling me, better go !
