Some Grown Up Time

I love my munchkins, they are undisputably the joy of my life. But god they're hard work! Em's been at home all week along with Xander on Thursday and Friday and the weather was rubbish. Plus on Monday to Wednesday I had to work (big assignment time) so I think poor Em went a bit stir crazy!

So, on Saturday I was so happy that I'd arranged to go to the Paper Dolls crop. 6 hours of uninterrupted scrapping (well, it's interrupted only by coffee runs, girly chats and popping out to the shop to buy crafty 'essentials'!). After a week of kid stuff it was bliss! There were only 4 of us there so we got to spread out too (which is always a good thing with my crafting style!).

Anyway, I got 3 layouts done; had aimed for 5 but we had too much to gossip about! I did another for Gemma and Dave's wedding scrapbook but won't upload it here as I'm going to show the complete album once it's done. However, got 2 done for my Antigua album. I just love the colours on this first one, and love that we all got a picture together:

And this is one of my favourite pics from the holiday - Xander on one of our early morning walks along the beach:

After the crop, we then went to Opera In The Park with Kay and Gary. Although I'm a rock chick through and through, there's something about sat in a huge park, sun on your face, drinking champagne and listening to the Halle Orchestra - very sophisticated!
But, back to it this morning. The assignment deadline is looming and I have work to do! Luckily my lovely cousin Jess has taken Emily to the seaside for a couple of days, so hopefully I'll get a bit more done!
