Are you liking the dramatic title? I've got this thing going on at the moment, where I turn everything into a song title and spontaniously start singing! I think it's 'cos #2 son has picked up his guitar again and has been strumming about. Well, yesterday was a mixed bag, I went to Kim's for crafty shinanigans with Mum and Beks, and had a great time, but on the other hand my Hub's was on the first day of a 2 day interview, so I was anxious too. He felt very positive when he got home and said it went well and then as the evening went on, he kept remembering things that he would have done differently, had he the chance. I Had to tell him to forget about it and relax. Off he toddled this morning for more torture, and I am hoping for the right outcome.
He needs to know that if he doesn't get it, it's because it's not the right job for him, not that he isn't good enough.
Back to yesterday at our Scrapaholix group, I did these layouts.
I didn't think I would like these papers, but I enjoyed using them.
This is a picture of my Sis's bestie and her chap at our Christmas
party. My hubby did a fun photo shoot, there were wigs and silly props.
Sarah and Laurence had a portrait session not long ago, so are seasoned pro's.
He's either looking at her with a deep love in his eyes, or he thinks she's completely barking!
Which would not be far off the mark. Love you sarah! LOL x
Another song title!!
Me my sis and our eldest bro, Martyn. We were all lined up for a lovely shot
and Beki fell off the chair!
Some would say it's 'cos she couldn't fit all her junk on,
... but they don't always like having their photo's taken! So most of our snaps appear to have a four legged friend in them. She is very photogenic, and is always with us, unlike Wes and Dan. However I was surprised at the amount of photo's with our little Collie in and felt a bit guilty, I am not one of those mad doggy women who thinks that she is my child, she just makes us laugh and likes being the centre of attention!
She loves her walks.
Her favorite place in the world.
She has no fear, she jumped 7 feet from one of these rocks!
This was always meant to be an annual event, and it was for the first couple of years. We all bought a bath duck each and decorated them in some very random disguises, ranging from Duckter Who, to Duck a l'orange and Ugly Ducky.
This one is from 2006, the silver one in the middle
is a duck roast!
We've not carried on this tradition for a while, but now we have
little ones around again, we revived the ducky fun.
Eddie, Coco and Leah waiting patiently.
And the winner is.... Everyone!!
They did egg rolling later in the week, and were most upset
when they were told their eggs would break, I think it was Coco who didn't throw hers!
Will leave you with this lovely view, don't ask me which Tor it is, I 've only
I thought I would be posting pictures of rust and trench foot, thankfully I am not! We had a great time away, we go to Dartmoor every year at this time, usually to the same place, but this year we had an admin cock up and ended up staying about 10 mins away from the rest of the gang. It was fine because my lovely Brother and Sil changed their booking too and stayed next to us. We were in a gorgeous new caravan at the foot of Pew Tor, so walking the moor was easy.
Phew, I made it up Pew!
( I look really stern, not really, I'm just out of breath!)
Have been on my hols this week in beautiful Dartmoor, hope you have enjoyed my posts. I would have posted pic's of us having a great time, getting wet, but hubbies iphone died before we left, so you had to put up with looking at my cards and crap instead!! This is the last scheduled one before we are home. My lovely friend Di lent me a couple of display racks for my cards, am hoping this will get them noticed a bit better, I have sold quite a lot, but when people get used to them being there, they tend to stop looking. So here goes nothing!
