Charity crop

Hi everyone. Busy weekend this weekend.  Audrey and I went to crop on Kilmarnock run by Karen to raise money for arthritis care Her lovely daughter Katie is.blighted my this and Karen has been fundraising for this.  We didnt get there till lunchtime due to an important appointment on the morning but once that is confirmed I will spill the beans on that one. We has a great day and o worked on my entry for Leanies cj. We had to put something we had been working on out at the end and Melanie from Arthritis care.judged them and I won. I was.chuffed as I never win anything. The prize was a lovely frame for.displaying a layout in.

I also made a card for my son Fraser to give his lovely girlfriend for her 21st. I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Back tomorrow with some exciting news I hope.

Easter break

I am just back to work today after having an 11 day break and all in all I only had to use 4 days annual leave.

I started off by driving down to Holystone to visit my lovely UKS friend Heather and stayed there until Sunday. We had a 12 hour crop on the Saturday and it was lovely to meet up with all the girls again - now that the caravan season is in full swing I will hopefully be down more often.

I only managed four layouts as I think I must having been chatting too much lol.

Some of them did take me a bit of time as this one had a lot of handmade flowers on. It is a photo I scanned which my Mum had taken on her 21st Birthday and is a photo I have always liked. I did want to take my time with this layout and get it just right. I used the Emmas Shoppe Crate papers from the last Gottacraft kit.
