Easter at Cutie Pies

Good morning.
Hope you had a lovely weekend.
On Saturday we ventured down to The Mall with Jack to get him some new clothes - not his favourite task - but then he is a teenage boy after all and going through that 'I don't like anything my Mum or Dad suggests' phase - but I'm pleased to say it eventually was a successful shopping mission :o)
On Sunday we visited Jamie and Rowena and saw my scrummilicious Lola Arizona who has come to stay with her Daddy this week and then coming to Centre Parcs with us all next week - can't wait :o)

So it's the start of a new week and also a new challenge over at


and this fortnight we would like to see


Here's what I did:

Adorable new image from Janet at Pink Gem Designs 'Easter Chloe'
