Groovy Chicks and Blue Skies

YAHOO!, It's the weekend and the start of the half obviously can't tell that it's been a loooooong week.  Working in school certainly doesn't get any easier or less hectic and after the drama of my darling son Rob deciding to change his A level options at the last minute....and then changing his mind back to the original plan, I could certainly do with some down time.
So to start of this glorious day, here is my list of lovely things giving me joy at the moment:

  • Fat, luscious spring blossoms.
  • My new lacy blue pumps.

  • Dusting the bike down ready to feel the wind in my hair.
  • Coffee and Walnut cupcakes made from a recipe from this gorgeous book.

  • Visiting The Big Scrapbooking and Stamping Show at Alexander Palace.
  • Seeing my son revise (without nagging)
  • Choosing paint for decorating

  • Knowing that I now have the Easter half term break.
Just to add to the whole joyous occasion of this post, here is a happy memory layout of a night where myself and a friend were invited to a colleagues wedding where they had a photo booth.

Oh the fun we had.  We even managed a 'normal' photo....well only one.

I had fun with Cosmic Shimmer sprays, crackle glaze and perfect pearls applied to chipboard butterflies and frames.  The title originated from the photo booths company name, Groovy Booth.

There is a lot of blue on here today, it must be the blue skies that has inspired me.
