My first Blog Candy!

Well I have been a bit off colour recently so alas have not done much scrapbooking or crafting!

I did however have the energy to make a quick card using Nikki Sivils Willow Bee.  I absolutely adore this paper collection, it is just so bright and happy and perfect for the lovely weather we are currently having ;)

And speaking of lovely weather, the kids are really enjoying it and spending loads of time outdoors (bliss!).  Having said that we are still doing loads of running them around!  The current list of weekly activities is
Monday - free yay! (unless there is a cricket match)
Tuesday - Beavers
Wednesday - science club
Thursday - cricket
Friday - Dodge ball and swimming
Saturday - orienteering
Sunday - free yay again!
So that is the set routine and then there are the cricket matches which can be any day of the week, the school discos, the Beavers parades and the parties!  But you don't mind the running around so much when the sun is shining :)

Kieran is so proud of his cricket kit as he has just moved up to the under 11s team so they now need the full kit as they use the proper balls and you often find him out in the garden playing cricket in his kit.  I just love how huge the leg pads are on him and I have no idea why he is wearing his school shoes!

One more quick one of Christopher playing with his new bubble tube, isn't it amazing how bubbles can fascinate kids for so long!   If you look carefully he has a big scrape down the side of his face where he just 'fell' on his face!

Anyway as I have had such good luck recently with winning things I have decided to share a little bit of the wonderful RAK I received from Tracie Hudson.  It was a really amazing RAK and there were double papers so I am giving away some of the papers as well as some of the chipboard pieces and elements.

 So if your would like to win it then you need to:

1. Either be a follower or become a follower of my blog
2. Leave a comment
3. Post on your blog about the giveaway and link it back here

I will draw a winner on Sunday the 6th June.  Good luck! :D
