Kraft It Up LO

Firstly - a big thankyou to all the lovely girls who wished me a happy birthday for yesterday - we may not have met "in the flesh" (no B&W in real life Miss ST!!) but I have made some wonderful friends on line that share their stories, families, lives and laughs with me and still count you all as great friends. So thanks girls!!
Had an awesome day - coffee with my bestie Jas - with NO KIDS so we could finish a conversation and our scones in peace, Julia and Angus Stone CD (LOVE IT!!), t- shirts, Oroton Purse from my Sis, Kaiser stamp from jas I have been eyeing off, and drawings from the kids. and of course cake (including a virtual one from Jess!!) and wine shared long distance with Sue for her birthday too.

Here he is - my little man finally stopping after running around in the sand at the beach - stopping for a bit of a reflection (and a pose) after spending 12 hours in the back seat of a car squashed between his brother and sister, stopping after screaming and giggling as the tiny waves nipped at his ankles.
Its not often he stops long enough to even catch a photo - often they are blurry or candid taken from a hidden place on the other side of a playground. But... here is one.
This photo was taken at the beach where my beautiful Nanna lives, 12 hours away so we don't get to see her as often as we would like.
This LO was inspired and lifted slightly from the very talented Flis, whose blog I have been stalking alot lately - her work is just so beautiful and her little man Brae is so cute!! This LO is for the Kraft it Up challenge this month where we had to use Yellow (my fav), Green and Black. This colour combo totally threw me until I saw the gallery - and gave it a go myself!!

Better get some cleaning done - after this house is sold - its back to messy living - I am over it!!
TFL and the luv
