Busy few Days

I was starting to feel a need to take some photos as I hadn't seemed to take any since our weekend away at Chessington. Rebecca turned 12 on Friday so it was the perfect opportunity! It has become a family tradition for the girls to come into our bedroom on birthday mornings and open presents sat on the bed, Friday was no exception.

Rebecca 12 today!!!

I loved this style of photo when I saw it in Scrapbook Trends last month so have decided to take one each year of the girls.

Rebecca wanted to go into town on Saturday with her friend Eleanor to spend some of her birthday money, this is our usual pit stop for coffee and cake!

We had to get up at 4.15 this morning to take Rebecca up to school for her trip to Germany, she was so excited. She rang me a few hours ago to say she had got there safely after a 15 hour journey! Bless her she didn't sound too happy but hopefully it is just because she is very tired.

We went out for a meal today to celebrate fathers day although it was a bit strange as we were only half a family, Emily and I. Rebecca was making her way across Europe and Justin was in bed as he is on lates. My sister took this photo of the two of us, I am honestly not 9 months pregnant the wind blew my top up!!

I am hoping to get some scrapping time this week, I have been asked by sarah over at Sarahs Cards to keep the blog updated so I want to try and get some more classes and challanges going on over there. Here is the blog link if you fancy having a look.

I was very naughty this week as I couldn't resist buying some of the new Martha Stewart punches, they came on Friday and they are lovely!!!

There are a few more on the "must have" list!! I have also decided to have a go at trying Glimmer Mists so I have been busy watching demos on you tube before my order arrives.

Right off to relax now.
