Cute little Critter!

Hi all, hope you are all having a good week! The title has nothing to do with my cards but more to do with this funny fella who I caught in the garden yesterday!

The lengths he went to to eat the bird food was so funny and about three foot away there was a squirrel feeder filled with sweetcorn! Anyway he looked like he was having lots of fun in the rain and I shall keep a look out for the little guy today.

I have had another scrapbook class at Sugar and Spice in Barleylands Craft Village this week and I made this page.

I have started a digital photography course and was trying to get the kids to pose for me on the weekend but they just looked un-natural and were quickly getting bored so I said to my son Tom, just laugh! And this was the photo I caught which I really like.

Anyway that was what I decided to use in my layout along with a little note to tell him how much I love him. Going to do one of Olly next but he is always laughing so that one should not be too hard!

It's my friend Liza's twins birthday tomorrow so I have been busy making their cards. I wanted to keep them similar but as one is a girl and the other a boy I decided to change the colours for each of them.

For Max

and for Ella. I have also made a couple of christmas cards to add to the collection.

The stamp is from and the papers are from Pink Petticoat and then back to the animal theme, I have made this one.

This stamp is from and coloured rather badly with promarkers.
Anyway just to end this blog on a happy note the little squirrel did manage get something to eat.

But now I have to take the dog for a walk because he is a little bit hyper! Have a good week!

Those rascally squirrels!! They are determined, aren't they, hahaha!! Well, your layout looks fantastic, great pic and the papers and LO are fab, love the ribbon and pin too. Love your clean, crisp cards. They look great!! Here are a few quick tips about child photography that have helped me get some cute shots. Get your frame and focus on your kids when they are not paying attention to you, then make a ridiculous noise, they will turn to look at you, you take the pic and get a pic of your kids still doing what they were doing but they are looking over at the camera amusingly. Next tip, when you are taking posed pictures, keep the camera out, or in position, and tell them after you've already taken a few "cheese" shots, don't worry, I am not taking more pictures just yet, I just need to check something... some excuse, they will relax a little bit while it appears you are fiddling around and you keep taking pictures, you'll probably get a good one or two that way. And since it's digital, you can take 25 if you want, lol.
Take Care,
