beautiful Bank Holiday weekend

Yeah, who am I kidding. Its cold and wet.
BUT it is our wedding anniversary today - 19 years!!!! Yup - only 6 to our Silver Wedding (if Phil doesn't get fed up of me by then)
We don't do that much - he bought me a mag and some chocolate. I gave him a card (the apple one from a dare actually but it was made for today!) and went out for a pub lunch.
We look a bit different now.
this is us yesterday at the Global Day of Prayer at West Ham yesterday
It was a really cool event - apart from the long wait to get in. By the time we were all in all the rows above and below us were packed. They sold 20,000 tickets. I have no idea of numbers but there were a lot of people there! Carys loved it and was "praise the Lord" ing with the best of them. Some of the prayers were done in a different way from which we are used to but it was an inspirational and moving and amazing time of worship on Pentecost Sunday.

I am supposed to be packing but haven't done any yet...But I have done some ironing (faint) and finished a couple of craft projects that were hanging over plus assist Carys with another page.
Would you like to see them?
Tough, here they are anyway.

{the layout will be back}

This is a Letter sized page using a kit from Scraptitude
I cut out all the flowers and swirls from two papers and used some big sticker letters from an old SA kit over a third. The letters are layered (maybe because I didn't have enough space to put them out in a line but I'm not telling). I love this photograph sooooo much. There is another with all three of them in a similar pose that may have to be scrapped soon...

{the layout will be back}

This layout is an 8 by 8 using the May Self Addressed kit papers. It says Mujic Van because that is what Hywel used to call ice-cream vans, not realised that they sold ice-cream. I have finally used some hambly - woo hoo! Maya road Fabric flowers are from this months Cool Blue kit. Sassafrass Lass bracket stamps; Poundland bling; basic grey rubons; circles and letter stickers from the QVC card and scrapbook kit in a box from last year; scalloped circle is my latest punch. Expect to see a lot more of it!

I won't be blogging until Saturday now. Miss me?
