Take Your Pick at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you've had a wonderful BH weekend.
I most certainly did - Saturday spent in Southsea at my scrummilicious Granddaughter Lola Arizona's Snow White birthday party - with a surprise visit from Snow White herself - will share a photo at the end of this post.
We took our squidgilicious Grandson Oliver as Mum and Dad had other plans - he was sooooooo good and really entertaining doing all the actions to the Superman Song :o)

Sunday was another busy day in the garden and painting the decking (between the showers!!!!)

Then yesterday we had a Princess Picnic in the park over at Bristol and that was a fabulous day - even if I did go over on my bad ankle (again!!!!) - that's the trouble with being too competitive playing a game of rounders!!!

So I think the rest of this week will be a little quieter and I really must get back in my little crafty haven and catch up with some crafty makes.

So today I have my DT make for the new challenge over at
