{25 - 31 August 2013 | week 35}

1 September 2013

It's week 35 and it's the last week of the summer holidays !

What happened this week ?

There was a {dress up} day on Sunday, Molly decided she would be a Princess and Noah was a Storm Trooper, they had lots of fun. A lot of the week was taken up with bike practise and on Friday Molly got a new bicycle.

On Wednesday we went to the Observatoire de la Lebe at Sutrieu. We learnt all about the sun, which was sadly lacking on this day but we did look through a telescope and see the lake at Annecy.

Thursday was the last market day of the holidays and the children painted little pictures on easels to put in their bedrooms.  On Friday they painted some masks, which they enjoyed.

On Saturday we cleaned up the pool and took down the tent :(

Techniques ~

I used Pockets D this week ! I moved out of my A comfort zone and hope to do this more often.

Paislee Press released {makebelieve} so I couldn't resist mixing this set with the new Neopolitan release by Dear Lizzy for Becky Higgins.

Week 4 of Toolbox was about misting so I created a filler card using my new Big Shot machine and mists. I also did some more stitching on my cards.

Persnickety Prints offered a freebie {infographics} bundle and I used this to create a summary card about the summer.  I am a visual learner and I just love the use of graphics ! The children each completed a card for me that I have added behind mine and I printed out a bigger version for their bedroom walls. We all agreed that we've had a fantastic summer 2013.
