bits 'n' bobs cont..

Well I'm slowly using up my scraps from my bit 'n' bobs boxes. This wallet card has been made using bits of papers leftover from other cards, together with some buttons from my local market, flowers are HOTP, the sentiment tile was a freebie from one of the crafty mags, not sure what make the gingham paper is, it came with a bundle from qvc, the other patterned paper is DCWV pocket full of posies.

Today has been a fantastic day. I spent all day at my daughters school as it was their sports day. Georgia did very well, she came second in the relay and third in the sprint. Yasmin's class had more of an obstacle course and it was really good, afterward they did the egg & spoon race, she was pipped to the post by her best friend. The Juniors did all their races in the morning, when all was finished, myself and friend Leigh decided to join in with the parents races...hehehe!!!!! what a laugh that was. First race was the egg & spoon, I came second.......with the help of a little cheating.......well ok lots of cheating... I was disqualified, but give everyone a good laugh in the process. Next up was the sprint, one of the dads just beat me to the finishing line, I was well pleased with myself coming second though (out of 7 parents), as it was two lengths on the school yard and I beat Leigh.....pmsl!!!!

Hope everyone has been enjoying the glorious sunshine today, lets hope it lasts. xx vicki xx
