Back to business and tomorrow we're going on a 'real' train, ie a proper one not a steam train over to Liverpool Museum to go see the dinosaur exhibition that was a school trip a few weeks back but unfortunately Ethan had to miss it through illness so I'd said I'd take him so he doesn't miss out. I think he's actually more excited about the train ride though lol!
We've been having a spring clean today so whilst the carpets were getting a wash I took them out to go buy some flowers for their pots. I used to always have tons of flowers before the kids came along but things just get in the way sometimes and just not really got round to it at this house much so friday we've got lots of planting to do and then swimming in the afternoon. I've no idea what theirs will turn out like as they wanted this that and the next thing so we've got the cheap and cheerfuls (Lobelias, fuschias, violas, petunias etc) that throw lots of flowers out for a long time and they'll be responsible for their own designs :)
We got strawberries too, hope theyre a bit more successful than our single cherry tomato of last year haha!
Right-o its a new challenge over at Crafts and Me this week and Carol would like to see bows and butterflies. There was a new release the other day of a fairy treehouse which I think looks absolutely splendid indeed and its got a lot of shading on to help you along so is so so easy to colour. I teamed it up with one of the Forest Fairy digi papers we have and it just looks amazing. I've added it onto a few of the papers in that set and it looks great with just those 2 as a lot of the papers already have fairy silhouettes in the background.
I reduced the size of the house to 25% then selected with magic wand and copied then pasted it on top of the papers. If its in jpg form it will be white allowing you to colour in.
I also added some of the larger silhouette fairies we have in the shop just for good measure, these are Mushroom Fairy (to the left) Nature Fairy (Sat on the step) and For you Fairy (Walking down the trunk on right)
Do ope you can join in Carol's bows n butterflies challenge!
I'd like to enter into...
