Teddy Bears' Picnic

Good morning

For the month of August I am the Guest Designer at Teddy Stampers.  This week the challenge is Teddy Bears' Picnic.  It does not have to be a stamp of teddies around a picnic - it could be a teddy with some food, bringing it to the picnic or it could be a teddy bear doing something after the picnic like fishing or taking a nap under a tree etc. 

When I saw this week's challenge details I immediately thought of the Teddy Bears' Picnic song and that got me thinking back a few years to when my daughter Chloe used to do ballet.  One year when Chloe was about 5 her ballet group put on a show and Chloe and a few of her friends were dressed as teddy bears and they danced to this song.  They were so sweet :o)

TGIF!  I am off to work shortly but only until lunchtime today :o)  I am looking forward to tonight and next week.  Tonight I am going out with the girls from work for a meal and a few drinks and next week Chris and I are off work so we are going to spend a few fun filled days with the children :o)  I only work 2 days a week but it's still great to have the whole week off.

Hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.

PS:  Just in case you are interested I have blog candy here!
