The sun was shining again today and we all managed to get up early enough to hit the car boot sales, 3 in total!!! The boys have enough toys really but we agreed that if there was something special or a real bargain then they could have something new. Both boys are OBSESSED with Fireman Sam at the moment and they both already have the fire engine and Fireman Sam character but in the last couple of weeks they have been asking if they can have a helicopter from the programme (or hocilidopter as they call it). I couldn't believe my luck when on the first stall i went to i found a set of the vehicles (including the helicopter) for £3.50, from then on I had two very happy little boys and lots of 'thank you' kisses.
We had not been home long when poor old Josh needed to pay a visit to minor injuries after he managed to split his gum. I can only assume from the bits i pieced together from a very tearful, sobbing little boy ( I was in the kitchen when it happened) was that Fireman Sam's Helicopter (flying around in his brothers hand) had somehow managed to collide with his mouth. Luckily minor injuries is only two minutes from our house and even more lucky was that his mouth will heal without any treatment, my mind went into stitches mode for a while there. No doubt as a mum of 2 boys this is just something I will have to get used to.
With both of the little people totally worn out and sleeping I have had time to finish a couple of projects that I started a while ago. Both 'gifts' were made from previous Scrapagogo kits as I am on a mission to use them up before they stack up and i had fun making them as it was a change from creating layouts.
The first is a gift card holder made using the April 09 kt (I think) I would love to credit the person who gave instructions on how to make the tree out of punched leaves, but I stumbled across it when blog hopping and didn't take the details. The bark effect ribbon was just perfect for the tree trunk.
