Two Weekends in One

I had such a lovely weekend and thought I'd share a bit of what I'd done.

Om Saturday I woke up really early and got all of the boring housework, ironing and shopping out of the way, then it was time to scrap.  I decided to take part in the weekly challenge over on UKScrappers.  The challenge was to scrap an animal, use lots of embellishments, a concentrated area and the colour blue.....that's when the trouble started!  I had a blue glimmer mist explode over me and I looked like a Smurf:
Yes they stayed like that for SEVEN hours, I finished scrapping and cut the grass and still they were blue!  I was pleased with the finished layout though:
Our friend's puppy, Daisy, wearing one of Maddie's jackets :)  All so long ago because Daisy is about 9 now but this really was a photo I'd wanted to scrap for ages.
After a busy, busy day I jumped in the shower (washing my hair finally got rid of the blue on my hands) and headed down to Paul's.  He was working until 2 in the morning so I left home at 10 and didn't rush getting down there, I love driving at night anyway.

On Sunday I had a lovely day out with Paul and got some lovely presents (which I forgot to photo) then he took me to lunch.  I love, love, love this picture of him:
I can't tell if he looks so happy because he's with me or if it's because his starter had just arrived:
So a really great, fun packed weekend but boy am I tired now.

I hope you had a good weekend too.

Well you did say you looked like a smurf and you weren't joking! Head ans Shoulders is supposed to be good for getting ink stained hands clean. Of course he was smiling because you were there xx
