Anniversary Card

I thought I would quickly share with you a card I made today for my mum and dad's anniversary tomorrow.
Papers used are free Fancy Pants papers from a magazine matted onto a kraft card blank, I love kraft cards! I used my Confetti Heart punch and some bling to finish it off. I hope they like it!

5 more to go!

I managed to get another layout finished for Leah's album yesterday which means only 5 more to go! Dont get me wrong I have enjoyed doing the album but at the same time the "I hope they like this" thought keeps running through my mind and making me panic! Now my mum want me to help her make the invitations for my brothers wedding next year! I dont know if I can cope! Anyway back to the layout...
Photot is of my aunty Wendy (even though I'm not allowed to call her aunty cos it makes her feel old lol) and uncle Steve.

Papers: free papers from Scrapbook magzine
Alphas: American Crafts
Heart Trim: Panduro
Flower: Prima

A day by the pool

The in-laws are house sitting for MIL employers at the moment. The house is a lovely big house close to Rutland water, complete with tennis court and swimming pool! On Sunday we were all invited over for a day by the pool.

Heres a pic of SIL Jojo and myself
Ian with his new convict style hair cut which I dont like!
Buster doing his Baywatch dive into the pool (cue the theme tune!)

And a pic of my gorgeous boy taking five

A day of antiquing

My SIL, Jojo, and I both have the same taste when it comes to interiors, we love the French Shabby chic style. As a result we both love flea markets and would love to have our own stall. Yesterday we went to a local antiques fair at Grimsthorpe Castle to see what little treasures we would come across. Neither of us have been to Grimsthorpe Castle before, even though its only a 5 minute drive from where Jojo lives!
We had a great time looking around all the stalls and we were both very good and didnt go too mad with our purchases. There is a doggy theme with what I brought. I brought these two Tunbridge Wear boxes, the larger I was brave enough to barter down to £25, the smaller which doesnt close very well was £8
I also brought for the princely sum of £2 this gorgeous fellow
As I mentioned Jojo and I would one day like to have our own stall. If we did then this would have to be our home for the weekend hehe!

What time is it???

ITS SKETCH & SCRAP TIME!!!! Yep its the 1st of August which means time to share with you my Sketch & Scrap layout for the month. This months sketch was set by Heather
And this is my layout
The photos were taken during our weekend on Shell Island in June, when one evening we decided to have a bonfire on the beach as the sunset. Dont be fooled into thinking it was a lovley summers evening it was flipping freezing! I had a go at ribbon folding for this layout which looks fab if you can get the silly thing to stick! The shells are actually from the beach
