I have also finished my page, that we did a few weeks ago. The class cut all of the flowers out but I'm not that patience so I altered my design slightly and just cut out some of the flowers to overlap the photo of me and me Grandma, sipping wine and chatting at the get together we had for my 36th birthday! I added a florish and a title to finish the page off.
Well, it Monday morning and I am recovering from a hectic quilting/sewing calendar. This weekend it was my monthly sewing class and The Festival of Quilts at the NEC. Our group hire a coach, there was about 40 of us. The show is so big you never get to see everything in a day. I did a bit of retail therapy....I bought some gorgeous fabric, it's the Amy Butler range.
At my monthly class on Saturday I made a new tote bag for all the new fabric I was going to purchase on Sunday LOL! The pattern is on one of the blog I follow Moda Bake Shop, it has some great patterns for bags, quilts, cushions.......

This is my Star Sign ATC. I have fond memories as a teenager I would alays go to the Horoscope pages first and I would read out the horescopes to my friends. The ATC is a pocket which holds a tag with my horescope on......
LOVE: This weekend looks surprisingly social. With a Leo moon spurring you on, steer clear of the karaoke!
LUCK: Batteries need a recharge? Why not dust off the picninc basket and rekindle your inner nature girl?
Who believes these... I used to as a young girl LOL!

I wanted to scrap our camping trip from earlier this summer in Holbeach. Here are a few of my favourite pages.....
Big G showing off his rosette for coming Third in the Oldies catagory.... with his proud Daddy! I love George so much I could eat him!
We camped right by The Fens so it was perfect, here's Uncle Martin showing Isabel and her Daddy how to fish!!!
I adore this picture of Daisy and George together in the boot of my car. It was a hot weekend so when we stopped at the supermarket I opened the boot to cool them down. Look at BJ in the back ground..."Im too hot and bothered to look cute!"

We spent a day in Skegness, the kids (including the big kid, my OH) enjoyed the rides in Pleasure Beach. I think the Waltzer was their favourite, you wouldn't get me on there for a million pounds! I finally met Gail, sorry Gail if I appeared like a stalker! I just knew it was you when I saw the bullie in a pram! It was really nice to chat, you have a very cute bullie. I cant believe she is 12!
My mum talked about her childhood memories of strolling down the promenade with her mum and dad as a small child and having her picture taken so I thought I would get an up to date shot....I dont think it quite has the same effect but in years to come it will have the same memories, Im sure!
