loooooong day

Well. I had started this post earlier but then life stepped in lol. Yesterday Mark had a minor op, no big deal all went well but left him groggy and sore. Obviously the powers that be decided I didn't have enough on my plate so 15 minutes into Caitlin being at Rainbows I got a call saying she had fell and hurt her wrist. 3 hours later we found out she'd managed to break it. :(
She's ok, dissapointed she can't do her tennis lessons at school but cheered up when I pointed out she gets to sleep in Mummy and Daddys bed as can't climb her high sleeper with a cast lol.
So my plan of relaxing and crafting tonight went right out the window lol. Luckily I managed plenty on my weekend away :)
First was for a sketch challenge Jess set for us :) I had to also include some brads.
This was my take :) I love the way the boys at sitting watching tv together :) The sketch was quite girly but rather than the flowers and butterflies I put circles and stars which I think worked well.
Next was a sketch challenge over at Kraft + blog here This was the sketch and you had to use something that sparkles.
This was my take. Pictures from disneyland a couple of years ago :) For the something that sparkles I used glimmer mists, bling, pins with gems on and liquid pearls :)
Well after today my head is pounding so think an early night is in order, night all!


  1. Lovely layouts - those are great sketches.

    I must have missed the news about Caitlin's wrist - bless her, hope she heals quickly x
