Better late than Never!!!!

I know I know......... its very late..... and I have apologised to Marcia and Sammi a million times and they have kindly just slipped me into the list of layouts on the Lollipop Ladies.
 Again the other girls have outdone themselves, (you have to go and have a peek)this week is Smarties.... with hearts... easy for me as I HEART Smarties very muchly... by the fistful of course... I even eat the purple ones!!
  I also want to thank Sammi and Marcia for the great fun I have had over the last 6 months as a candy striper, I have truly enjoyed all the delicious offerings, made great friends and worked on my "scrappers spread" ...all for research and creative inspiration of course :P

So here is my last layout for the lollipop gals. A sweet photo of my youngest two.
 They have the best relationship and play together endlessly {until a fight breaks out and he forgets he taught her how to fight.....} but... all fuzzy lenses and magazine fluffy stuff removed... they are best mates nearly always and  look out for each other. She is home on Wednesdays at the moment (did I mention she started school this year???) and asks all day if its time to pick up her brothers from school and as soon as he walks in the door they are playing. Very cute.
  I also love this photo as this is when they were super cute... such a great age. And as Jas has said in one of her posts, I wish I could go back to this age too when they were little. Its photos like this that make us want to give them an extra cuddle each day.

Lots of hearts are hiding in this LO too... and lots of yummy Sweet Vintage goodies too.
Just remember the little girl in the red dress.............................. {??????}


until then.........

Mad Mel xxoo
