Dummkopf! - Duckies and a bit of Treasure

I came across a challenge over on the Bellaboo site and was inspired to scrap some photos taken on holiday last year.  Only when I had completed my layout did I realise I should have used products they sell in their shop, which to be fair to them is the whole point of the challenge which I missed!!!  Needless to say there was nothing on my layout I could find in their shop so note to self - read the small print in future!!  Anyway it's not all bad because I am actually very pleased with what I ended up with. 

Who could resist such cuteness!!

An update on our little duckie visitors.  They are still coming daily and sometimes stay the whole day til dusk, come rain or shine!  They are so tame coming right up to the back door for scraps and not minding my lens at all!  Today just Mrs is here, not sure what's she's done with him but he's sure to have cheesed her off so she's escaped for some peace and quiet.  Here she is on the pond, which is in need of some tlc when we get some decent weather!

And last but not least here is a little something I found in the charity shop today. 

I was so happy to find the Falcon Ware sign underneath the £2.50 price tag and have managed to age it to the 1950's.  My husband asked me what I wanted to buy someone else's junk for when I gleefully showed it to him.  I wonder if I can find someone else's pond to sit in!!

Anyway I think it is going to look swell in my dresser which is currently undergoing a makeover and  looks like this right now:

An after photo will be along some time but first I must swap over those bottom slidey doors as it wasn't until I looked at this photo that I realised they have been closed incorrectly - probably forever!

2 Layouts from a scrappy weekend.

Hello - I  am super excited this week as I am going to visit my daughter working out in Lanzarote - I CAN'T WAIT to see her and catch up with everything.  I can't believe she's been gone 6 weeks already - my house seems very male now - it has always been 50/50!

At the weekend I was lucky enough to scrap with some lovely friends through all that rain - we hardly noticed it.  I managed to complete 2 layouts and have another in progress:

A scraplift from Justem at Club CK - I adore the circles and the title is inspired by my sons's t-shirt.  Thanks Gaye for deciphering what it said as I couldn't remember and my eyes aren't so good these days!!

This was inspired by a layout by mercytiara (see my last post).  When I came to file it away however I discovered I had already scrapbooked this photo and had used the title Isn't She Lovely?   Have you ever done that or is it just me?!

 And last but not least - I received this in the post this morning.  :D

I have something in mind to make it into. ;-)

See you when I get back from my trip.
