Sports Day......

I got to go to Ethans end of year sports day last week, I can't believe how fast that year went, its lovely seeing all the children participate in their various races, involving bean bags, bats and space hoppers....well they were called that in my day. Ethan got off to a flying start with those long legs of his, but we laughed as his ingenuity when they had a relay race where they had to balance a bean bag on their heads and run/walk without dropping it, my Grandson took his cap off put the bean bag on his head then put his cap back on and tore up the field.......as you can guess that wasn't in the rules. when it came to the Dads race of course his Dad had to have a go with a little prompting from moi. This scrap layout features some of the piccies of the day, I have used Simple Stories papers and embellishments called Twenty four Seven.


I have spritzed the background with Dylusion sprays and then stamped using 
a honeycomb stamp from Creative Expressions to the background paper. The pin wheels I made from a hexagon shape and added a brad to the centres.


love the photo where Ethan is giving his Dad a pep talk before the Dads race.


the photo is hidden behind the main panel of photos with just the journalling on show as I wanted to add the piccie of him on his space hopper. 


My op got cancelled today so hopefully it will go ahead on Monday now, it was a real pain having to go and get my blood tests done again though, on the plus side it gives me a bit longer to get all the jobs finished i.e weeding the garden, washing, ironing all those Mum sort of jobs that we all do, along with going to work, looking after the Grand kids etc.
hugs n smiles to you all
