The sun!!!

The sun is shining after 3 days of rain and grey skies.  And my washing machine is humming!  So just a couple quick layouts before I go enjoy this sunshine.

The gals over at Design Dollies had a great sketch this time around.  Awhile back in Christchurch, Bryce and I went on a date and ended our night at the Chocolate Lounge.  I had a hot chocolate of some sort and Bryce had a spicy hot chocolate.  We also shared a couple small pieces of chocolate. was a great way to end a date!

I also did a layout for the "celebrate You" challenge but didn't get it finished in time to post for the challenge.  Why is it so hard to do a layout featuring ME?  Even though it wasn't done in time for the challenge, I'm glad I got this one done. I am not very good at self portraits.  I really like to be behind the camera more than in front of it.  But I do know its important for my boys to see this side of me too.  I did use the sketch over at Pencil Lines for this layout.

Yesterday was so cold and wet.  About 4pm the rain stopped so I took the boys to the skate park.  Just because it wasn't raining didn't mean it was warm.  Brrr....we didn't stay too long but they wanted to show me their tricks on their bikes.

Well, two loads of laundry on the line and one in the machine.  Its almost lunch time so I'm going to go for a walk first to enjoy that sun.  Loving it!!!


  1. These are really fun! And love the button rainbow in the post below! Thanks for joining the fun at Sketchy Thursdays this week:)

  2. Ooooh I love the sound of the Chocolate Lounge :) Yumm... Fab layout too :)
    I totally hear you with the 'about me' layouts - I've even mentioned something similar on my blog. I mostly live behind my camera and it's a big step to get in my face in photos and onto layouts ;) Good on you for doing your 'Self Portrait' layout :)

  3. Nice layouts, Lydia! Looks like you had a lot of fun with your boys, too! :)

  4. I completely understand how hard it is to do a layout about myself. That's why it was such a great challenge ; )
    Love both of your layouts my dear. I sooooo want that hot chocolate.
    Thanks for playing along with the Design Dollies.

  5. those layouts are both great, and I totally know what you mean about doing one about yourself! i just did one a couple weeks ago for a challenge too, but it was hard to even find a picture of myself! Your pics of your boys at the skate park are awesome! Glad you're having some nice weather! It's starting to get nice around here too...although we're getting into spring, and I think you're getting into fall right? try not to do too much laundry! lol

  6. A real grown up date! And with chocolate at the end!! sounds heavenly!Love both these Lo's. xx
