Swimming, Crafting and flower arranging!

Hello Lovelies! How are you? I hope you're okay and have had a good day! I've had a beautiful time today - I went for a swim and practiced some of the things I was taught yesterday - then I went to my mum and dads and had a crafternoon - we played with brushos - and followed a project from this months craft stamper - lots of fun - I will do a simpler version with the coffee pot ladies on monday I think. Here's the results:


I am very excited with this one - I think the techniques are brilliant - just follow them in craft stamper!


The stamps are paperartsy - i used  versa mark, white embossing powder, brushos, frantage, alcohol pens. My mum really enjoyed this too - I think I'll try applying it to my own version - altho' the design is so beautiful I daresay I won't get such fabulous results! 

Tonight me and my girls did some flower arranging - well they did it really - I just cut the flowers. We have a festival happening in the village at the moment - Lord Roger Montbegon was one of the 25 barons involved in the signing of the magna carta 800 years ago and he lived in Hornby. The play the girls did on Saturday was part of it and there is a flower arranging competition tomorrow - so the girls wanted to join in! The theme is Hornby. This is what they did.



I'll let you know tomorrow how they get on - but I'm very pleased with what they have done! And they had such fun!

Hope you have a good evening - its running away from me today - will be around to visit after I have done another post - I've got news!!! More of that soon!

Big Hugs
