Art, History, Science - my weekend

Hi all,

Well I'll start off this post with this double page LO I did during the week, 'Summer Paradise Agnes Waters' Well in a local UK Magazine there was a comp for Summer LO's. I entered the left side 'Summer Paradise" and was one of the 5 lucky winners. I will have a Friskits pack sent out to me this week. My first ever comp win. Our week was so busy, it was nice come Sunday Josh had the day off so we went into London City for the day. It was amazing, We started our day at the Camden markets, the locals say if you want it you'll find it a Camden. True too, you name it it's their. A must for any one with time in London. We then got back on the tube (this is truly the best public transport system in the word) We got off at Charing Cross and went to 'The National Gallery' here we were blown away with paintings such as, - Rembrandt's self portrait at 34 - Equestrian Portrait of Charles 1 by Van Dyck - The Madonna of the pinks by Raphael - Michelangelo's The Entombment - Sunflowers by Van Gogh - The Virgin on the Rocks by Leonardo de Vinci The Virgin on the Rocks was by far my favorite. It was truly a very inspiring walk through the beautiful rooms of the gallery, it's a master piece it's self. We then went for some hands on fun at the Science Museum, where we ran around like little kids. It's so funny how some things just make you run a muck! Time to break for lunch and a stroll from Leicester Square to Piccadilly Circus. Finishing our day at the Natural History Museum, which I would describe as a zoo, but all dead. You know where they stuff the animals, I really can't remember what it's called. But we were their for over 2 hours and still only scene half of it. Ill finish with this photo of my scrap room. Well I'm used to having a huge scrapping space, and can’t wait to go home to set up my new room. (Yep true addict, already planning on the reno to the huge room behind the garage)

Congrats on the win Miss Lauren!!!! Great LO so I am not surprised that you won. Saw you LO in SC this month, the one of you and Josh dressed in the "old clothes" Love it!!!!.
Glad to hear you are enjoying London it is a beautiful city. My cousin live just out of London at a place called Stevenage.
The Camden Markets are just the BEST aren't they. Have you done the topless bus tour yet, you will see a lot of sights your wouldn't normally see.
If you get the opportunity go for a drive down to Dover (Kent) for the weekend, you won't be sorry it is beautiful (not that I am bias cause I was born there, lol) but you can catch a hovercraft over to Calais for the day. If you do go there make sure you get some fish & chips, Mmmmm.
Take Care
