First of all, a big 'sorry' to everyone who has visited lately only to find nothing new. It's been a couple of very busy weeks at school, then last week was spent on a Great British Butlins holiday. Loads of Billy, bingo and bed-bugs (only joking about that last one!), but DS2 and myself really enjoyed it despite the cold, wind and rain. The food reminded me of school dinners with the likes of chocolate sponge and custard - all good hearty stuff! Anyway, we're back now with a few additions to the family in the shape of totally naff cuddly toys won on the Camel Derby and grabber machines (yes, a complete waste of money, but we had fun doing it and the charity shop will be glad of them).

I just finished off this card to get back into craft mode - another PP image coloured with Whispers pens and a funky felt flower picked up in a packet of 8 from a Skegness £ shop. This particular shop is only to be found in that area I think and I came out with a big bag of goodies for £12, more of which will be seen on later creations. I also finished off this flip book of my boys - I bought a few of these naked hardboard books from Art From The Heart at the Harrogate Show. All papers are Cosmo Cricket and the embellishments and rub-ons are from my stash.

Still have another week off, so I promise to post each day and catch up with some challenges.
Until then, thanks for being there xx.

Woohoo, she's back! Glad you had a good holiday. It's nice to get away from daily life, that it doesn't always matter where you end up. Well done on winning the Camel Derby.

Lovely card and great album :)

Woweee! this is amazing Juliet, you've realy surpassed yourself this time, I love it, and the card too - beautiful. So glad you enjoyed your break, I agree those grabber toys are such a rip off but such fun to get, it's worth it.
