This friendly little squirrel came to within 10 inches of me whilst I was caching in Hyde Park.
And this photo needs no explanation, other than I didn't win the money but did get to the final three, voted for the strongest link who I thought was the Weakest Link and in a tied vote, he changed his vote to me. Which is exactly what I would do too. Never mind, great bunch of people and a lovely day.

Some more photos Nick scanned from slides. I used a page map, added some stitching. I particularly like the cross stitches on the bottom ribbon. Wasn't sure of a title so added a monogram and stamped over the cardstock with a swirl stamp.
I'd pick these photos out to scrap.The quailty isn't very good but they're scrapable. I then picked up some Scenic Route class layouts from a kit I purchased ages ago, which just needed photos. Unfortunately I had hoped to cut the lettering at the crop, but I didn't have the right platform, so it came home to be finished. Again I love the QK blossom font and love the size. Added some journalling blocks and it was finished.
K Werner has a great video on gathering ribbon on twopeas http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/cg_display.asp?seed_id=29135 I'm going to try the same technique but with glue. I'm not a big staple lover.

Here's the first two layouts I did at the crop yesterday. Two more to come tomorrow.
The photos have been printed for the first layout for some time and came to the top of the pile at the same time as this kit Joanne bought me for my birthday last year. I thought the papers went well with Fiona's top. In theory the layout went together quickly!! I've even used some more Fastenator bars.
I now have my favourite items in a basket on my desk together with other items that I just need to use. Now that they're in view, they're being used up slowly. I've been sorting my cardstock today and even most of my carstock scraps are sorted by colour in a ziplock bag in the same cropper hopper as the full sheets of cardstock. I've even found the Egypt themed cardstock from Club Scrap that I wanted to use up last year but couldn't find!!
Second is Red Nose Day which uses the dotted Heidi Swapp mask on a background of swiss dot black Bazzill. I spotted the felt ribbon in a box of threads I'd brought to the crop for Joanne to use, so I'm definitely using it up. Add a half sheet of busy Rouge de Garance paper that I won some time ago and it's almost done.

The photographer from the local evening paper took a photo of their friendly game. It would be quite funny if that's the photo they used to represent the event and not one of an official game.
