Well I haven't been around for a few weeks as I have had the opportunity to work a few hours for six weeks and I am out of practice with the idea of working and running a household. My creative head has been resting whilst I get the basics around the house up to date and leave some for "later".......
I'm sharing a layout from a few weeks ago based on a sketch for August by Heather at Home and Scrapped. I might eventually finish scrapping my photos from Amsterdam and then I can move on to the other areas I visited in The Netherlands.

He is really excited by it but also nervous so I hope he does well tomorrow as he has a little solo part to perform.
Have a good weekend everyone!
