30 years

I had some exciting post this morning - a nice, new scrapbooking kit so I thought I'd put it to good use straight away.
My lovely friend Sue does a sketch challenge each month and I love a good sketch so I used that as the basis of my page.
Here is the sketch and below my page.

It was our 30th wedding anniversary on 19th July and we thought it would be nice to go our for a meal with the family - hence the title lol!

Grins & Giggles

A scrapbook page from me today for a change.  I did the weekly challenge on UKs and we were given a list and had to include 3 items off the list, one of which was a sketch.  I chose this sketch from Sketch n Scrap.

and this is what I came up with.

Snap challenge continued...

I'm going to struggle with no. 2 - a horse drawn vehicle but apart from that, my list is coming along nicely.  Here are my next few:-

5.  Something typifying my home town - roundabouts, lots and lots of roundabouts!

13.  Something one would only do if the sun was shining - sit with my feet in the paddling pool.

and last but not least for today,
18.  Umbrella - it's such a lovely day, we need to keep out of the sun for a bit.  (I can't believe I'm saying that!)

Please excuse the washing but life goes on even when doing a photo challenge Lol!

I'd forgotten I'd already got the hat one but I had to include these two I took today.

Erin-Rose jumping out of the bushes with her Grandpops to try and scare us

and this little poppet :)

More Snap challenge photos

I've managed a few more photos over the last couple of days and here they are:

9.  Bubbles - Ivy enjoying her bath :)

11.  Summer sunrise or sunset - in my case it's the sunset.  The chance of me being up and about to catch a sunrise is highly unlikely!

12.  Eating al fresco.  We had the family round for a meal  this afternoon and it was nice enough to sit out in the garden.

14.  Flags or bunting.

15.  Summer shoes - my flip flops next to Erin-Rose's pretty pink shoes.

17.  Water - Erin-Rose and Chris enjoying the paddling pool and Adam pouring some water over his Dad.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with the final 6 photos I need to get yet which are:

2.  a horse drawn vehicle
5.  something typifying your holiday destination, or your home town if you are planning a staycation.
8.  kites or balloons
13.  somewhere you would only visit when the sun shines
18.  umbrellas
19. glasses
