Wormcharming update

Twas today, all previous records were smashed. I got the prize in the community art contest over 18's category (£20 voucher), and DD1 got the prize in 12-17 years category (a lovely art set and sketch pad). She gave her sketch pad to her little sister though cos she missed out on a prize.

Abote daddy

I found a little bit of paper yesterday on which my youngest daughter (aged 6) had written a few things about her daddy. It made me laugh its so accurate in a cute kind of way so I scanned it and scrapped it...
Paper - Boys Retreat by Cartherine Design
String - Beach Time by 4 Shades of Blue at Mellow Butterfly
Other elements - Wauff Kit by MK designs,
My World and Garden Poetry by Kitty Design at oscraps.

30th World Worm Charming Contest Tommorrow!

Tomorrow (June 27th) is the 30th World Worm Charming Contest. Its an annual event held at Willaston Primary School, Derwent Close, Willaston, Nantwich. Its starts at 1pm and could easily be the craziest thing you'll ever see! Although its now too late to apply for a plot, I would still recommend it as an afternoon's entertainment. There will also be a summer fair and country dancing diplays.
To find out more visit the official website here
and watch this on you tube

Here are our entries into the community art competition...

Play Days

This is a new kit from Createwings and Holliewood Studios at Oscraps, I don't CT for them (would love to though) but I couldn't resist this kit and had to use it straight away. The photos are some oldies of the girls.
Kit is Play Days available at Oscraps

It's Finally Finished (and only a couple of months late)

I have been following Shimelle's Scrap Your Day class. Idea is that on the 25th of every month you take photos of your day and scrap them in a book. This started back in April 2008 and ran for 1 year finishing in March of this year. I kept up with the photo taking but not with the scrapping, but today I can finally announce that I'm done!
I tackled this as a hybrid project using papers from the Funky Playground collab kit 'Funtastic' from April 08, Together Alpha by Kim De Smet and the little bird on the cover is by Kate Hadfield.
It has been wonderful to look back over a year and see the changes, just the little things from our everyday lives.
