We had a beautiful weekend here. The weather was wonderful and our summer fair at school was a real success. I hope that everybody had a great time, it looked like they did anyway ! We made loads of money for the school, but as usual I didn't win anything at the raffle, which is a shame since I got all the prizes myself !!
Sunday was a lot quieter, I did some gardening in the morning. This time of the year is the time to enjoy and I love pottering about and looking at my pretty flowers. This year I went for all shades of blue and pink and I am very happy with the result. The borders look colourful and bright but yet are all coordinated !! ( may be I am a little obsessed with colour coordination !! ) (It is when I start dressing the whole family in different shades of blue that I will have to start worrying !! ). Anyway, for those who will appreciate it, here are some of my pretty flowers !!
Sunday afternoon we went strawberry and raspberry picking with some friends. It was so much fun. Harry kept eating them all and I am very surprised he hasn't complained of a tummy ache! The funny thing is when we got to weigh our baskets, Harry said to the lady, I didn't pick many because I was too busy eating them !! You couldn't but laugh at his honesty !!
And here are the kids caught in the act !!
This weekend I also managed to make a page for Once Upon A Sketch. I really love this website. The amount of talent is extraordinary and the challenges really push me out of my comfort zone. This week you had to use this sketch..
And talk about the person on the picture.
I said this page took me out of my comfort zone since I decided to use some stencils and quite a lot of ink. I am not sure it shows on the picture but I first made a circle with stencils then added the leaves in a circle. I added a bit of glitter in the end to brighten up the page. I made the little birds and used a crochet flower that my sister ( or my mum !!) ( I might get into trouble here for not remembering !) made me last summer. So here it is..
I have decided to also enter this page for a challenge blog called The Craft Garden. You had to add a bird on your page and another challenge blog called Get Picky where you had to use this picture as an inspiration.
And if you look quickly, my colours kind of match !!
