Cake, Jousting and Worcester Sauce Twiglets.

I ended up making this page twice. I love the pictures - my family and I in a very pink cake shop in an unlikely place - and they were were all soft pink and I made a page on pink paper and it was all too much and I didn't like it.

I like this version. It's less offensively pink. I'm all for the odd touch, but this is about my limit. Of late, I love using my distress ink (the blue is new!) to add smudgy masked shapes, scattered punches and putting bunting on little foam pads. Dimension is the new black.

In other news, we've planned almost a year of Guides activities and I am possibly even more excited than they are. Camp! Eeek! And tonight I taught the girls tray jousting. You need a lance (rolled up newspaper) and a tray (foil trays are very light and work well - bigger is better) and you pit the guides against each other. They have to balance the tray on one hand while trying to bash their opponents tray off their hand with their lance. They loved it. Jousting tournament on the cheap.

As I type, I'm nibbling Worcester Saucetwiglets. I can't work out if I like them or not. I keep expecting Twiglet taste and they taste of not-Twiglets. It's actually delicious, but unexpected.

Bed now as I'm tired. It's been a busy week!

P.S. Looking forward (finally) to some Sunday afternoon scrapping time!
