This weeks Pencil Lines Sketch is live.
Go check it out here.
I used new papers from 3 Bugs in a Rug - from their Celebrate line to create my page.
Even tho these papers are perfect for scrapping your birthday piccies they are also really versatile for use on other projects to. The chit chat cardstock stickers are adhered to Bazzill chipboard chips and the title formed using alphas from Scenic Route. I hand cut the circles and stars and used 3d foam to add a little dimension to the page.
It has been Bobs wish for such a long time to go and skate at a "proper" skate park in the US....and finally his dream came true :) Within seconds of leaving LA airport he was skating!
Ive had a very peaceful weekend.
Its so good to be home and so much better to be able to scrap with all my bits and pieces at hand. Im not a very good "croppin" scrapper because I always forget something!
Apart from pottling around at home and messing about I havent done very much - after the madness of our holiday, CHA and then Stitches - its been nice just to relax....watch TV - scrap a little and snuggle up reading the Sunday papers.
In need of some fresh air to blow the cobwebs away, Hubs and I took the dogs for a long walk on the beach.
We sat and watched the waves for a while whilst we chatted about things we have to deal with over the coming weeks.
J returns to school tomorrow and TBH we are both a little more than hesitant.
Im anxious that all that was agreed before we went away will not happen - Im worried that when he gets there plans wont have been adhered to and the bully will still be around.
J still bares the scars from his last encounter with the thug and I dont want him to add anymore to the collection.
Bobs had some friends for a sleepover on Friday and they assured me that they will take care of J and make sure that he will be OK at school - I am so grateful that Bobs has a great group of friends and even tho I know they will be there "just in case" and be on the look out - its not their job to be "baby sitting" J!! This is something I have always avoided - Bobs is not his brothers keeper and has his own life to lead - we will just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings - fingers crossed its all good.
