Fun Days Out

Last Sunday we wen out to the farmers Market in Hobsonville. It was a beautiful day and I was able to get some nice photos of the girls and benji. This layout is based on this weeks Sketchy Thursday sketch. I used Sassafrass papers and handmade the flower from Hessian (see Jodi Dolbels awesome tutorial on u-tube if you are interested in making your own Hessian flowers). The tag is from Maya Rd and I misted the background using a Crafter's workshop mask.
The photos for my second LO were taken at a recent trip to Auckland museum. It is a tradition in our family that one day a term each child has a day off school to spend doing something fun of his or her choice with mum. Sophie chose to go to the museum on her Sophie day. I took a lot of photos and these are just a few of my favs. As usual I couldn't narrow them down to just one or two so I did another multiphoto LO. Not sure how much I like the colours on this one though. They are a little on the dull side for me :)
