What a shiner

I'm not sure what my young nephew has been up to but he has a huge shiner.
I wonder what the other guy looks like? :0)

Cloud watching

Whilst out in the garden yesterday I looked up and saw some really cool clouds.

I think we used to call the Mares Tails but I could be wrong.

They were pretty cool anyway, whatever they are called.

It pays to look up every now and again.

Yarndale 2013

Oh how I wish I was in Skipton in Yorkshire right now.  It's the first ever Yarndale and I'd so love to be there.

The lovely Lucy over at Attic24 is one of the founders of this wonderful woolly event.  It's all about woolly goodness, crafts and like minded people.  Knitting or crochet. sewing, spinning or felting.  They've got the lot.

Imagine all the colourful, yummy hooky goodies on show.  If you're in the area pop along and take a look.

I'm hoping there will be another one next year and that I'll be there :0)

Another year older...........................

Florida Album Pt 1

I meant to post about these a few weeks ago but with one thing and another they got pushed to one side.  I bought a really nice Red Polka dot, D-ring album from Sarah's Cards to use for my Florida album.

It's very Mini Mouse.

So far I've done a few layouts with a whole heap more to go.

#1.  The front page.  I'm not too sure about this one and I may undo it and start again.
 #2.  The Magic Kingdom.  Could go all that way and miss out on a photo op, could I?
 #3.  Cletus - git ma gun.  The teenager loves the Simpsons and it always talking like Cletus so I had to do this layout.
 #4.  Splash Mountain.  This was the very first ride we went on.
 #5.  Zapped.  John and Samuel getting "Zapped" outside the Simpsons ride at Universal Studios.
#6.  Krustyland.  We thought the ride would be busy but it was really quiet and we got straight on.
#7.  Pretzels.  I really wanted to try a real American Pretzel but to be honest they weren't very nice.  Very doughy with to…
