Such a relaxed and lazy Monday...

I almost missed my Monday post!  Lol! Since I always seem to do a Monday post, I almost missed it this week. It's a public holiday here in Western Australia and it was very different from my usual Monday. I managed to get some washing done but not much else. DH did a afternoon barbeque and the rest of the day we all pretty much chilled. DS is off writing his first exam at Uni for the semester (they don't seem to care about public holidays or late night exams!). DD is starting with her Year 11 exams tomorrow, so the kids were working very hard today.I've done my first layout with my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne. I was lucky enough to get the gorgeous MME Lime Twist 'Out of the Blue' collection. The diecuts and stickers that come with this range are just beautiful! 
The pics are of DH and DS. At 17 (when the pics were taken) DS had outgrown his dad already and was very proud of it. We are by no means a 'short' family and I am now the second shortest of the 4 of us! DD is not far behind either. ;)

I've entered this layout into the Colors Combo Galore Challenge #195 as the colours of these papers were just perfect for the challenge.
I've handcut a few clouds to go with the theme.
Just love those gorgeous mini alphas that comes with these papers!
Using that Tim Holtz flower diecut again, this time with denim and that little white flower was cut from canvas. And yes, there's that MS frond punch again! :)
Well, better go and fold some washing and get something useful done before bedtime! Hope you are all having a great week so far!
Thanks for stopping by and for your awesome comments!

Love what you have done with these papers, they are soooo gorgeous! (I am having a little MME frenzy atm...LOL) Adore the use of denim on this LO & that super cute balloon. All I can say is - DIVINE Miss M! ;-) XXX

Don't you hate the fact that once you feel good the washing is done the next two steps after dry have to follow....I loved hearing about your weekday holiday, find it funny that exams happen on them when I finally go back to work for 15 hours a week and made them Mon, Tues and Friday and find out that holidays start the week I start and the Monday after the 2 weeks break is a student free day.....gosh what do you do.....anyway, love the pics of ds and dh, gorgeous work my friend, the papers are gorgeous too. Love Melxx
