Just a couple of the many pictures I took on days out over the last easter holidays. I have more I want to scrap of the boys which time permitting might get my attention before the weeks out.

These photos of my youngest son were taken at the Portsmouth Big Picnic on bank holiday monday. We had so much fun with so much to do & learn all about getting outside & enjoying the benefits of exercise & healthy eating. In these pictures Noa is attempting to hula hoop. The hoops & demonstrations were provided by HappyHula Monkeys.com hence the title of my page. Did you know you can burn 100 calories in 10mins with a hula hoop?! I didn't until I met these guys. I now have my very own HappyHulaMonkey Hoop to use at home which I love. It is so much fun & takes a little time to get the hang of but practise makes perfect.
I made this page using my June kit from Sarah'scardsltd.com I just love this line of papers & all of the co-ordinating embellishments. I have lots of photos to scrap & these papers are perfect. They can be used for both masculine & feminine pages too.

Also for those of you who like a challenge, Groovy Deborah from http://ifitsgroovy.blogspot.com challenged us to have some photo booth fun. This is what I came up with. Here are my 2 boys doing thier thing in the photobooth. (Not sure why my picture looks blue gotta work on those camera skills.)
When trying to get a nice happy photo from my boys, my oldest was reading the instructions on the screen. I told him to smile to which he replied "It says on the screen don't smile!" He is a stickler for following rules & it was hard for him to ignore this instruction. Although I did explain that those instruction were for people taking official photos for passports & drivers licenses.

From Southsea we headed over to Brighton beach about 50miles along the coast. We had fun although it was quite windy & raining on & off.
And finally we ended our week at the local shopping centre. Where I got these gorgeous shots of Spinnaker Tower.
Overall we had such a fun week together & I got to play with my camera. I can't wait to take the kids back to these local spots at half term. Lots of fun days out planned & always an opportunity to snap shots for their scrapbooks. I can't wait!

My husband is hoping to be able to participate in a charity trek through the Andes next year. To secure a spot on the charity trek he has to pay a £250 deposit & commit to raising a further £3250. While this is all for a good cause helping children in our local area, it is going to take a lot of hard work & fund raising efforts to reach the goal amount. Also, he has to get granted permission from work to participate if he is successful. We are hoping that he will get it due to it being for charity. So this is just a quick note to say if I am not around online so much it is because I am working hard to support him in his fund raising efforts. I have launched a new blog where I will be showcasing handmade cards & gifts for sale to help towards his goal. You will be able to visit it here: http://yumyumcards.blogspot.com
I will keep you all posted when I find out mroe information.

This sketch was perfect for this old photo of my grandparents taken on my wedding day 8 years ago. I love this picture but cropped it down into two smaller photos to lose the cluttered background. I experimented with acrylic paint on the chipboard hearts and behind the title, also inked the photo mats lightly with a brown ink. I love how this page turned out thanks to the perfect sketch I had to work with. I chose my title due to the fact that I cannot imagine my grandparents apart they have been married for over 50 years.
