Oh dear, naughty me !

Sue Wilsons new Christmas dies hit the market this week and I just couldn't resist some of them. There's still a couple I might just have to have.
Anything to make Christmas card making a tad easier! Well that's my excuse.
Andy and I are on holiday for two's a stay at home one this year, doesn't seem possible this time last year we were on a cruise and today we were in Alanya in Turkey, visiting Said and the Magnavat waterfall and it was very hot! The past few days we've been decorating our hall/stairs, tomorrow we shall finish the papering and put everything back.
Tuesday we took a little drive out to Cratfield too see where myself and 6 friends are staying at the end of September for a crafty retreat.......the place looks lovely. We then went onto Aldburgh and had fish and chips sitting on the sea front.

Next we took a two mile drive along the coast to Thorpeness.
The House in the Clouds to the right of the picture is a converted water tower.

Poor horse looked totally cheesed off. !
To round off the afternoon we treated ourselves to this...............
Scrummy it was too.
Along from Thorpeness on the beach (ha, I mean pebbles!) we found the clam sculpture.

If ever in Suffolk both these places are well worth a visit, you can find them off the A12 in between Woodbridge and Lowestoft.I have some new photos to scrapbook at last!

Anyway, hope you're having a lovely bank holiday weekend even if it is a little chilly.

Time flies......but I have been busy honest!

Where does the time go? Infact where has this year gone?. I have been busy of late, extra night shifts at work.......doing one tonight, commission work for Scrapbook Mag issues 83 and 84, getting ahead with crop kits for the Bramford crop (I'm done up until December now) and sorting stuff out for Emily (my youngest) who's off to Kingston Upon Thames Uni September 13th. Every other day she seems to get more emails or paper work through the post to sort out........cost a fortune this week alone, new laptop, DBS, old CRB to pay for then you have to register it on line too and pay for the privalidge, Doc's to sign a form to say she's fit n heatlhy a cost! Oh well her inheritence is going down!!! LOL.
Anyway over the past month I have managed to go to Papermaze and Karen's monthly crops and scrap. I'm off to Karen's crop this Saturday and Papermaze next Saturday, oh and then there's Karen's monthly mid-week crop next Thursday.....time to use up some stash.
Here's what I've done....

These are from our Cruise last year, not many pics left that I want to scrap now but still managed to fill up two albums.

Well the sun is shining, no rain here in the moment anyway.
