By now you probably know that I am taking part in a journal page tip in swap with some very talented folk!
These pages are for my chosen theme Gardens(with no frogs please).
The pages arrived in a big brown envelope with all these fabulous stamps on
The first few pages are depicting the nursery rhyme Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary and if you take a look here on Elizabeth's blog she explains the meaning behind the words of this seemingly lovely rhyme!
The details of how Elizabeth created these pages is also there.
|This page so impressed both me and hubby|
This velum paper is so beautiful
This next page suffered a little tragedy and it wasn't until I saw the photo that I remembered I hadn't stuck the letters back on( I will get it done this evening E!)
Thanks, Elizabeth for 'No Frogs'!
This is the front of the tag
This isn't all either Elizabeth sent me some gorgeous flower stamps and sentiments that I know I am going to be using ..a lot!
Now, I am here for T Stands For Tuesday at Elizabeth's and her 2 cats (not) in the yard!
Last week we went to our caravan - the reason that many of you didn't get a comment from me, as the reception was the worst it has ever been!
We had two days out even though the weather wasn't particularly brilliant. On the first day we went to Hawes, a lovely little town in the Dales.
|We once stayed at this hotel|
|These chimney pots have a price tag of around £60 pounds - we have 3 of them in our caravan garden that we discovered in the overgrown hedge|
We started and ended up here..
….where we started with lunch along with our water
A ham and cheese platter - delicious!
This was the days special although there was plenty to choose from
The cafe and shop are in a new building that we returned to for a coffee and a little spend!
Love these mugs and fun bags…
…oh and did I mention the cheese shop…samples to try before you buy- did I? You bet I did…
I think I should stop here before you all nod off - I will be back another day with photos of the fabulous gardens at Dalemain House - it was blue poppy time - beautiful
Thanks for looking, Chris
