Happy Father's day !

Nice and quiet weekend for a change with lots of gardening between the showers. The garden now looks lovely and tidy. Andrew has also spent his father's day weekend putting the swing back up ! Bless, but he did get a "Thank you daddy you are just the best daddy in the world !!" so I guess it was all worth it !! And here it is together with a few more pictures of the garden...

Andrew was out Friday so I got a chance to scrapbook a bit. I had seen a page in a French magazine a while ago that I really liked. the artist is  Marie-Laure Bollinger. Her blog is mlbcreation.blogspot.com. If you have never seen her work, go and check it out. She is an amazing woman, she has four children if I remember well, she works and still has time to take stunning pictures and create fabulous pieces of art. 

My page is not half as nice as the original but I still love it. I love the colours of it and the simplicity of it. I am thinking about framing it and putting it in Amelie's room as the colours would match all her bedding and decorations and I got a big kiss and "I love you" when I showed it to her. !! Ahhh. But enough talking, here is the masterpiece !

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend, pretty busy week coming up so not sure how much scraping I will get to do.

Take care



  1. Je ne connais pas Marie-Laure mais ta page est superbe ! Ton jardin est magnifique aussi. J'aime tellement l'Angleterre... y avoir vécu une année m'a comblée de bonheur. Tu as beaucoup de chance ! Moi j'étais à Durham, à l'université et je me suis régalée ! Que des bons souvenirs ! Plein de bisous !

  2. This is just gorgeous. I love the way you have used these papers and the big title is just so cool! Love your colours too. The photos are so beautiful too. Thank YOU so much for taking part in our challenge!

  3. This is just sooo beautiful. The title really catches your eye and the colours are just perfect :-)

  4. Your garden is looking lovely Anne.
    I've been wanting to garden for the first time ever, but the weather is so rotten : ( We went to Long Acres at the weekend and bought some Hydrengas, a lilac tree and some other bits, but haven't had chance to put them in yet.

    Cute LO, will check out that blog x

  5. re coucou
    pour répondre à ta dernière question, les fleurs sont découpées avec le die de Tim Holtz "tattered florals" et la Big Shot. Je peux t'en découper si tu veux, ce n'est pas un problème, comme ça je t'enverrai une petite cartounette, ça me fera plaisir... hihi

  6. Love the clean simplicity of this page. It would be great in a frame!

    On a side note: Is that a very large bug in your son's hand?! He's so brave!
