Georgia listening to her Grandad explaining about Poohsticks at Tickton Bridge.

The brown scalloped cardstock is Bazzil and I punched it 3 times on each scallop, distressed the edges and dry brushed with cream acrylic.
I went to the sewing machine shop to enquire about a service as my tensioner isn't working at all and it's £40.oo for a service so I think I might just put up with the loose stitching for a bit longer!!

The patterned paper is K & Company and it's double sided, it cut out with a scalpel like a hot knife through butter, but it wasn't normal cardstock it was a divider page for a 12x12 paper box so I cut the tab off the side too.
I want to enter this months Basic Grey challenge on SB.Com but you have to use an everyday photo and nice cute face shots don't count!!

I took this while Ben was waiting for Georgia to get ready this morning. His new hat and coat are just gorgeous. The coat is by JEEP the truck company and has the coolest embroidery on the back...can't wait till he's walking to get a photo of that!! And the hat just reminds me of a forestry worker!!

We have the grandparents coming for lunch tomorrow so it's time to put all my play things away for the weekend and after that I'm going to start on some Halloween goodies!!

Have a great weekend whatever you get up to.

Love Ruth xxx
