C4E Recipe challenge #25

 Hello everyone :)
Well I'm not late with this weeks challenge project but I am really behind with this weekends crop preparation! lol! I'm always late for something!!
This weeks C4E challenge is to make something with a sporty theme. 
I drew a blank on cards so I made a layout this week.

The LO is about my eldest son's school sports day and how he tried so hard to master the elusive skipping rope! He just couldn't get the timing right lol! Bless him :) 
The boys both had their sports day yesterday and had lots of fun with a picnic on the school field at lunchtime. The atmosphere on the field is wonderful, families coming together with their picnic blankets, camera's and extended family  :)
I have used Echo Park papers from the C4E store with a couple of Crate Paper chipboard accents. I wrote the journaling directly on to the layout in white Gelly Roll pen. Not 100% sure about that!

We are looking for a couple of new recruits for the C4E design team too! If you'd like to join us all the details are on the C4E challenge blog.
Right I'd best get on with the crop preparation otherwise there will be no samples, kits or project sheets for Sunday!! lol! There are a few places left if you are in the area and fancy joining us, I will be teaching a Mixed Media Canvas workshop in the afternoon, and there is always plenty of coffee and cake!!
Have a great weekend thanks for stopping by

You Will!!!

Good Morning!
Well there is still a large hole full of water outside, no workmen and the local kids are loving throwing the lumps of concrete back into it! Wonder what the chances are of workmen showing up today? lol! 
We had a lovely afternoon yesterday exploring a local beauty spot, the boys loved running and exploring. As usual for us we sat on wet grass in the wind drinking coffee and eating cake lol! The outing was in aid of my sister and BIL's birthdays so Happy Birthday Guys!!!
I have a layout to share today :)
This layout was the May crop kit layout. The kit is available HERE
The sketch for this layout is this months Mojo sketch which can been seen HERE on the C4E cafe blog or HERE on the C4E website

 The story behind this photo is that my mum and aunt joked many years ago that they would ensure that I got married even if they had to "help" me get there lol! When we got married I asked the photographer to stage this photo for us, we were not supposed to be smiling lol!
I am in the process of designing some new journaling products for the C4E Store, part of the collection is these fun Pennant flags. I haven't decided if I will release them as digi's yet but they will be available soon in packs of 6. What do you think?
Time for a coffee break lol! 
Thanks for stopping by have fun!
