Joanna's BIG Birthday

This is a small book I made this week for my oldest Daughter Joanna on her 40th Birthday.The papers I used are old scrap pieces and the decorations were pick up from the Great British Craft fair at Bolton two weeks ago. It was its first time at Bolton and it wasn't a bad show.Still not enough paper for me but I picked up some good bargains.
The best thing was I picked up the tickets for just £4 for two people off the internet.For that price I had to go.

The BBQ Last night for her birthday was great .It was nice to see my two daughters together and to see Laura & Amber my two gran daughters. Lots of wine and conversation was had by all.

Back at last

Hi to all my followers who are still out there. Sorry I have not been in touch for such a long time but with Dave nearing retirement we decided to revamp the house. We have moved the stairs around to give us a extra room ( I will come back to this) , we have fitted a log burning fire which was unbelievable through the winter  and we have redecorated through out the hole house.
Now the new room up stairs was going to be a new guest room but we or should I say I came up with a better idea . You guested it a lovely new CRAFT ROOM so Dave can now have the dinning room back.
The problem was for the first two weeks I have just sat in it thinking how lucky I am but at last I have started to produces crafts starting with one of my favorites the Ikea mirrors as you can see from my pictures. 
Dave has now retired and one of his first jobs was to revamp my Blog, it is still work in progress but I hope you all like it.
