Back from hols

We had a great two weeks away in Scotland.  For once we had two weeks of sunshine with no rain (unheard of for us!!)
This first photo shows the view from our caravan window
We had some nice walks along the coast and I discovered a 'Fairy' tree
and the flowers were blooming ....
Had to visit the pigs of course.  This is Bonking Bob and his mate
and the kids
All in all we had a great chilled out two weeks.  Unfortunately it's back to work tomorrow.  Roll on

New Craft Stash

After a fortnight in the non craft shop zone of Dumfries and Galloway I succumbed on my return home!!!!
These paints can be blended on to paper very much in the style of distress inks.
A very handy stencil to use with the paints for scrapbooking.
Two very nice background stamps that can also be used with the paints.

Displays for Summer Reading Challenge

Really pleased with the way these turned out.  Spent a lot of time at home working on these - that's the way it has to be as I don't always get a lot of time off the desk - we are so short staffed!  This one is in the foyer.
This one is in the Children's Library.  The theme this year is Space Hop so I think I've got it covered,

As you can see it is an easel card paper pieced and glamour dusted.

Back on the Diet

Had a fabulous night out with the girls from work last night at our local Chinese restaurant.  It was all you can eat Buffet Night ....... fatal .... it would have been rude not to go back for second helpings !!!!! Then to top it all they brought out chocolate cake as three of the girls were celebrating Birthdays   AAAAAgh.  Will have to go on starvation rations for the next week to compensate.
Have made a couple more cards  to top up my pile for when we are away - 8 days and counting.
A Tiddly Inks image and Kirsty Wiseman backing papers and Greeting
And Closer
This one is a Mo Manning image and I have paper pieced the chair
And closer
Thanks for looking.
