Autumn is cool...

when it is 20°C and sunny, that is! We are enjoying a long weekend (Tuesday 11 is a bank holiday and we all got Monday off too!!) and the beautiful weather allows us to spend a lot of time outside, in the garden where Richard is cutting trees, in the playground/parc with the kids, life is nice! :)

Well, that is if you don't count the ENORMOUS spider I just killed. The biggest ever! Well, not litterally of course, but really, it was HUGE. And totally invading my scrapcorner :( With a little help from Richard, who handed me the anti-spider bombing material (...) I managed to get rid of it, and right now I am carefully looking around because my mom always used to tell me that they come in pairs... So I tremble.
Therefore, just a quick post to show you my latest creations:

This layout is featuring Naomi on a poney. She is so happy when she ride a "horse". I made this one for a stamping challenge, we had to use a stamp and brown ink. I stamped the cute Magnolia girl, with regards to my happy horseback riding girl. PP Cosmo Cricket and Cherry Arte, letters American Craft Thickers.

And this one is about Naomi in the "pool of balls" or whatever you might call it in English. Can't remember who made the PP and am too afraid to go search to my paper stock, in case spider-man (or woman) is hiding in there... you know, the other half of the pair.

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!

It's November, that's for sure...

It has been raining all day, almost non stop. A definate sign of November :( This morning, I planned on going to the market, I love the market, but the rain got me hesitating. I finally decided to go, with a big umbrella, and ran into my brother-in-law who invited me for lunch. Okay, why not? We ate at 4 pm :D But never mind that, we had a fun afternoon.

I totally forgot to post pictures of the first snow of the year, which was last week while it was still October, not normal at all ;-) The pictures were taken in the garden where we actually had just a little snow, where I work there was quite a lot, but well, still don't take my camera to work! OK, don't laugh!

Next I'll show you two of the three layouts I made so far this weekend. Only two, because I didn' manage to get a decent picture of the third ;) I really DO NOT like the third, so I'm not even sure I'll show it!

The first is a layout showing Alban on some kind of play-thing in the playground in Figeac. He was really concentrated on what he was doing, I love how he sticks out his tongue when he's concentrated. Too cute. I used WeRMemory Keepers paper, a diecut flower border (don't know who made it), Cherry Arte rub-ons and Ranger paintdabber.

The second layout also features Alban, with a picture taken that same day in the same playground, actually on the same "play-thing". I looooove this picture and quite like the result of the layout, even though it is still a "can do better" layout. Well, I hope I can do better ;), on day...
Prima PP (the cut-out flowers), Bazill CS and ribbon from my stack.

That's it for today! Thanks for your comments!
