Kaiser Sketch

I had a feeling a slack day on Tuesday would mean I pay later in the week. If it was just my life, my commitments, I had to contend with … I reckon I’d be comfortably busy right now. However when you add in netball practise and games for 2 kids, guitar lessons for one, rally, piano lessons for 3, a weekly library visit, stage challenge practice, band practice, youth group, a husband with school board commitments … it’s a little tricky juggling all the pick ups and drop offs … and everyday life stuff!

Not that I’m complaining … just saying …

I actually enjoy our Friday afternoon/evenings … starting with piano lessons which gives me half an hour sitting in the car – sometimes I crochet, sometimes check e-mail/catch up on facebook on my phone, today I stitched up the hem on Jessi’s netball dress and still had 5 mins to read my book.   Then we go to the library and get out enough reading material for the week ahead and then do any shopping that needs doing … today it was bike shorts for under the netball dresses (I’m sure we showed more knickers in my day …) and then it’s dinner time … trying to avoid the takeaway options so it’s homemade fish and chips tonight … just waiting for them to cook.

Anyway … still catching up on those layouts I did a few weeks ago … this one was for a Kaiser Craft Saturday Sketch Challenge April #2.

Not a range I would naturally choose to work with … a bit too bright and cute for my vintage tastes … but I happened to have a few bits and pieces on my desk left-over from challenge packs I made up for an all day crop at Craft House and I’m happy with the ‘fun’ feel the page has.

This double layout was one I did at the crop day … just using some bits from the challenge packs … and the barcode strips from the papers I cut for the packs … love how they are patterned on the reverse side … definitely usable!

This was our Hanmer Springs adventure … mmm … a soak in a hot pool would be rather nice right now! Unfortunately my camera hasn’t been quite the same since this day … one too many splashes maybe? … or maybe it’s just getting old and I need a new one … have been doing some research … will need to save up first!
