Big Owl Eyes Mini Album

I made this mini album shortly after my sons first birthday, to celebrate his first year! I didn't want to make a traditional baby album, so this is what i came up with.

I used a mixture of chipboard letters the large ones are from Maya Road. The album contains papers from Papermania and Sassafras Lass Pocket Full of Rosies

I've entered this mini album into a competition to win a mini album at The Studio. Check out their blog for monthly challenges and giveaways, to help keep you inspired. I would have posted a little bit more about this album, but blogger wasn't uploading my pictures very well and I'm lacking in patience today! :-)

Leeds Festival (in the rain)

Woo Hoo!!! I finally made it to Leeds Festival after years of talking about going. It rained nearly all day Friday and was as windy as hell, but the company and the music was amazing. At one point my lips had actually turned purple from the cold, my friends suggested i had a good walk around to warm back up. This seemed to help for about 10 mins. But then The Prodigy came on and i danced around like an idiot for an hour and everything seemed better again ;-).

10 minutes of sunshine

My sister Clare looked after Dylan on Friday and turned him into a fairy princess. He looks so cute (even if I do say so myself)!

My Fairy Prince!

The toilets (poo-tardis) weren't too clever. They'd kindly put hand sanitizer in the portaloos, but unfortunately some of the lids had broken on the containers. One of the dispensers I looked at had tab ends, ash, and a drowned beetle floating in it. My personal hygiene felt violated by the end of the weekend, but it's all part of the fun!

10p a cup!

Deborah and Tony at the top of the Booster!

The highlight of my weekend was, without a doubt Kings of Leon. I absolutely love them! Big time!
