A day at a show - and an ATC swap

Hello Lovelies! How are you? I hope you are well and happy! I'm good after having had a lovely day, yesterday with the school at Westmorland Agricultural Show. I got to take my girlies around in my group which was lovely - we saw lots of animals and also did some fun things! They even got chance to play the harp - lovely!

Today I would like to share some ATCs I made and received over at Jo's ATC swap. These are mine:

I did enjoy getting out the TH die and using it again - the background was made using a stamp from Chocolate baroque. These are the beauties I received in return. Thanks to my fellow swappers!!!

Here's some more snaps from Cornwall - these are from a couple of trips to Flambards - the theme park is great fun and it brought back many memories of holidays there with Shaun.

This horse was called penny - so Penny enjoyed riding her!

This is my friend Julia who came along with us - She's such good fun!

Lucy in her favourite panda.

Lucy and Julia braving the log flume.

and finally me and penny on another ride - such fun!!!

We had a great time at Flambards as we always do - they have fireworks on a wednesday night in august and its brilliant! Loved it to bits! no piccies of that though!

Enjoy your Friday - I'm swimming then going off for a sports massage - and trying to get started on clearing Penny's room ready for decoration - big plans - I wonder how much will be achieved!
