I cut some of the flowers out on my sizzixx in chipboard and then covered them with Basic Grey. The other flowers were chipboard in a pack. I like the doodling that is around now-reminds me of when i was at school and I used to doodle all the time. I still do when i am in meetings etc.

Cooper and I at the party we went to on the Sunday.

I went wild witht he flowers but then I love flowers and love red.

showing the fabric bows I created. It is amazing how in my huge stash of fabric I had the perfect match for the green and it was an unusual green.

Cooper was the centre of attention at the party we went o one Sunday. He lapped up all the attention. He gooed and garred when he was supposed to. He is such a happy little boy.

Amanda took this photo of Cooper and sent it to me over the net. She knows how much I miss him when I don't see him. Both my grandchildren call me Mama-well Cooper doesn't yet but he will. LOL.I laughed when I received it.

Where are the school holidays going to????????? I still have heaps of marking and reports to write but I am not in the mood for them. I am going to have to get in the mood.

I arrived home Monday and Tuesday I had a group of friends over for a crop day. We had a good time as usual with all the bantering and fun and we laughed alot which is always good for the soul.

I knees are getting worse and on Tuesday I was in so much pain that I went to the doctors on Tuesday night-it was a 2 and a half hour wait-I didn't get to see my normal doctor but this one was lovely and so kind and gentle and thorough. I have ligament problems which i already knew and he thinks like me I also have arthritis. So i will be having some x-rays done.

Yesterday I only went out for a short while with a friend to look at a conference centre.

Just a simple layout of Cooper using the rub ons and some flowers and ribbons. Every layout can't be a work of art-lol.

I smile everytime I look at this dragonfly because Jessica told me about it before I received it. Children, some can keep a secret and some can't. She knows I love dragonflies so when Melanie asks her what she wants to get me she usually says something with a draogonfly.
Anyway it was still a surprise because I didn't know what the dragonfly was going to be.

Well school holidays are almost over, well over half over-still heaps to do including marking.
The long weekend we went away witht he 4x4 club and we had a ball as usual. I helped organise the kids activities and that went down well. I was pleased about that. I also went up to Amanda's place for the week and got home tonight. Had a nice time with her little Cooper who is growing and getting cuter each time I see him.

I did 20 pages while up there-each night instead of watching TV and sometimes during the day I just scrapped away. I will include the layout here a few at a time.

Tomorrow is a crop day at my place with a group of friends. We always have a lovely time.

I feel like being bright tonight.
