Sunny days

These past few days have been gorgeous weather here so it got me thinking it will soon be ice cream time, yay! I remembered I have a photo of the first ice cream of the year last year so I decided to scrap it! I used the Sarah's cards sketch for it. I used more October Afternoon papers as I love the sunny colours. I even made my own little ice cream with felt and bits of ribbon!!
I tried out some new techniques on this layout that I haven't tried before, distressing the edge of the paper, machine sewing (I had my machine out for something else!) and patterned paper around the edge of the whole layout. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
In other news I have been asked to be part of this;Rebekah kindly asked me if my blog could be one of the 33 blogs that are in her Birthday blog hop on 19th/20th March The bash will start at 7pm on Friday night on her blog. There are LOs, projects, challenges and prizes that include one of Shimelle's classes, an Indigo Mill gift voucher and lots of stash, not to mention a digi freebie. I've never done a blog hop before so I'm quite excited to see what it's like and it should be good fun, hope you can join in with us too!
I had a great afternoon with my nephew, Rowan yesterday. We took him to Chew Valley lake and had a little walk feed the ducks and Rowan had a swing. He was really good and happy! I took my camera and had a play about so I've got some nice photos to scrap!
Anyway best go, back soon! xx
