CR84FN & a Sassy Lil' Sketch........

This week's colours over at CR84FN are Red,Aqua and White such a gorgeous,fresh colour combo and look at the beautiful inspiration board and such a wonderful quote.





I wanted to start scrapping Jodie's 21st Birthday photo's and when I saw this sketch at Sassy Lil' Sketches Blog I thought it would be ideal for the photo's I'd taken of her bouquet of flowers that her boyfriend Dan had delivered to the house.


The papers are Daisy Bucket and Prima,I punched the edges using Martha Srewart punches. I coloured the white ribbon roses with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Broken China and the ruffled ribbon is also Tim Holtz.

On Easter Monday we decided to go to Birmingham for the day with friends,it was a beautiful day and we did a bit of shopping,had a walk around the city,sat outside a  canal-side bar for a couple of drinks then had some tapas in one of the restaurants at The Mailbox,a perfect Bank holiday.
Here's a few photo's of our day:

 Paige & I in the fitting rooms of Jack Wills,they were huge and had a fab seating area!!!


Colin,Mick (My Hubby),Mick,Me,Penny & Michelle.

Paige with her purchases.

I hope you all had a great Easter,we've got another long weekend here in the U.K. with the Royal Wedding on Friday and May Day on Monday,I could get use to all these holidays.
You still have time to enter this month's challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous , just find out your eyelets and use at least 23 on your LO or card, you could win some of the new Crate Paper Toy Box range and other goodies, you have until 30th April.
