Sweet Sketch 108 & Bugaboo Stamps.....

Hello & Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

This is a very happy Wednesday for me. I finished work yesterday for 8 whole weeks!! My youngest daughter finishes school today at mid-day. My older daughter has already left Primary school and I am soooooooo looking forward to spending the summer hols with them 
(poor hubby will get a day or two off here & there) 
Lara was away on a school trip last week to the Isle of man, a wee island that sits in the middle of the Irish Sea Between Ireland & the UK. She was away from last Wednesday until Sunday morning. We missed her terribly, especially her little sister. Of course Lara had a blast, they went Orienteering, wall climbing, gorge walking, kayaking, they built rafts, abseiled down a 50ft tree & so much more. When she came home on Sunday morning she was exhausted & in need of a hot bath!! and although we really missed her I'm so happy she had the confidence to be away from home, such a fantastic experience for her.
Anyway on to this weeks challenge. 
1st up we have another fab sketch from Arlana
