Hee hee, I hadn't even realised that it has been 4 weeks since I last put up a blog post!  We have been away on holiday to visit my best friend for a while and then we had family staying over and we have been tiling our bathroom, which is looking fantastic but what a long process!  Apparently it was made longer because of the fact that I wanted the tiling done in a brickwork pattern instead of the standard tiling pattern and that involved more cuts!  It was also the first time my hubby had done tiling so it was pretty cruel to do that to him but he is always good at all DIY so I knew he could handle it! :)

Anyway here are a few photos from the hundreds I took on our holiday!  First off I just have to show you a photo of the view we had from our bedroom window.  My friend lives out in the countryside and it is just so wonderful and peaceful there!  She has a lovely big garden where the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and then a lake with ducks at the bottom of her garden to feed!.  The quiet was just wonderful and I loved waking up to the sheep noises in the nearby field,  I think we neeeeeeed to move to the country! ;)

Of course we had to go down to the beach, even though it did get a bit nippy, poor Kieran even had to wear my jumper after he went swimming!

This is me and my best friend Megan, I was thinking about it the other day and realised that we have been friends for over 20 years now!

These photos were from Drusillas which the kids just loved!

Christopher has not stopped moaning that he wants to go back and we must all go and live at Megans lol!

You would think seeing as I haven't done a blog post for so long that I would have loads of layouts to put up but nope I have had hardly any time for scrapbooking and what I have done is either for magazines or the Bo Bunny blog so I can't share them yet lol.  The only thing I can put up is this layout for my Sketch and scrap group, I am not too sure where the sketch was from this month.

I think this is one of the fastest layouts I have ever done as I only had a couple of hours to do it (I even had to photograph it at night!) and it normally takes me ages to do a layout!  It was really hard for me to do it that quick as no matter how simple my layouts are I usually mull over everything for ages but it was also kind of freeing.  I don't think I could do that too often though as throwing a layout together is really hard on my nerves lol.  I used Bo Bunny Mama-razi which is just perfect for these photos :)

I just love the black tape above the buttons that I got in a kit from The Scraproom ages ago but I have no idea who makes it, if anyone else knows please let me know! :)

Bo Bunny is spotlighting design team members this month and doing a get to know each design team member, they are also giving away a prize each day so don't forget to pop over there to meet the design team (they are really the most awesome group of really lovely and talented ladies!) and your chance to win some yummy Bo Bunny prizes. :)
