Better Late Than Never......

Hi everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Well I have a confession to make......apart from the fact I'm a rubbish blogger at the moment I also appear to be technically challenged too. I had scheduled some posts before my holiday (or thought I had) and when I got home they hadn't posted.......I could blame it all on Mr Blogger but I think it was more than likely down to me......

So here is a card that I should have posted for The Hobby House Challenge Blog on the 14th sorry Jill!!!!!

The Hobby House products used are:~

Topper ~ My Little Garden
Pearls ~ Elegant Flourish
Pins ~ Decorative Heart Pins
Mulberry Flowers ~ Blossoms ~ Vanilla Latte
Mulberry Flowers ~ Roses ~ Peaches & Cream
Self Adhesive Pearls ~ White
Pearl String

I also used paper from my stash.....I think it is from MME and card from Bazzill Basics. The butterfly border punch is Martha Stewart.

Thank you for taking the time to pop by.

Have a lovely evening.

Good evening everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Well I'm finally getting back into the swing of things after my holiday.....and back at work already.....well you have to go back to pay for the next adventure don't you. And an adventure it was!!!!!!!!

I have a few crafty items on my desk at the moment but nothing to share as of yet, so here are just a few photos......

This magnificent lady has been my home for the last 17 nights.....

The Crown Princess

Docked In Venice

My Other Half

Entrance To St Mark's Square

The Doge's  Palace

Shopping In St Mark's Square

The Bridge Of Sighs

Gondolas On The Grand Canal

View From The Water Taxi

Going Back To The Ship Along The Grand Canal

These are only a few of my photos and I will add more over the next week or so. 

We had a fabulous holiday and visited.......Gibraltar....(we had to abandon Corfu as our ship answered a distress call....and The Crown Princess was involved in a Humanitarian Emergency Rescue). We visited Dubrovnik and Koper where we were caught in a 75 knot wind and the ship listed quite alarmingly and we had to wait several hours for the wind to drop before we could get into the harbour to dock. We also visited Valletta in Malta, Venice and Cadiz. 

We had an amazing time and many adventures making wonderful friends along the way. Cruising really is the only way to travel for me and I don't even mind the wind or the rocky seas!!!!!! 

Thank you for taking the time to pop by.

Have a lovely evening.

Paris Travel Journal

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Well I noted a cool crispness to the air this morning when I let Bertie out so I think September has most definitely arrived.

I have another little journal to share today.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a much larger journal that I had been asked to make for a lady who is visiting from America....taking in London and Paris along the way. Well we found out that she will be travelling with a friend and not wanting to leave her out I was asked to make another, smaller journal and here it is......

The Front

And the back.

I bought the front and the back cover in a pack years ago and they have sat quietly tucked away in the back of the cupboard waiting patiently to be used......and luckily for a change I remembered that they were there.

I added lots of pockets and tabs and secret journalling flaps.....then finished off with paper~clips, ribbons and charms.

I'm hoping she likes it.

Thank you for taking the time to drop by.

Have a lovely Sunday.
