Show us Your Ribbons at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. 
What a fabulous day we had on Sunday at Thorpe Park - Jack and his friends really enjoyed themselves and I even went on some of the rides :o) 
John also went on a couple of rides - will post a photo of his favourite at the end of this post lol!!!!
Since my post on Saturday all other plans for this week have changed - Jamie decided at last minute to take Lola Arizona to Portugal with him so I'm not having her for the week now :o(
I must admit that I was really disappointed at first but now I'm happy that they will get to spend some quality time together :o)
I also won't be looking after my squidgilicious Oliver either this week as he is poorly and his Mummy is going to stay at home to look after him :o(
So I will be spending some time in  my little crafty haven trying to get ahead with some DT work :o)

So today we have a new challenge over at


and my bestest blogging buddy Claire has picked the theme


Here's what I did:

It has been ages since I did some scrapbook layouts and I have so many gorgeous photos of my scrummilicious Lola Arizona that I thought I would do a LO for this challenge using ribbons, buttons and flowers I've had in my stash forever!!!
The Alphas are K&cO recycled that I picked up in a craft shop bargain bin about 2 years ago.
 Design Papers - DCVW Nana's Nursery For a Girl

Our sponsor this week is
