Dad spent yesterday at the Sandringham flower show and came to stay with us in the evening - he had a whole car boot full of stunning roses from the show. We got about 6 good vases full, of which I kept 2, and the whole lot cost him about £5! They are a complete mixture of colours, shapes and sizes, and the scent has filled the house.
Behind the flowers is my bargain find from yesterday - this gorgeous wooden mirror was £22 in a local antiques shop, love it!

Finally finished

Here's a layout I started making at the GogoGetaway at the beginning of June, and have only just finished! I am so not good at finishing half-done projects once I've left them longer thana day! This one was just missing the flower centre and butterfly - thats all, yet it took me about 6 weeks to complete lol.
Note to self: complete layouts as soon as they are started, otherwise it's likely never to happen!

My life in bullet points

  • I am 4 days into an 11 day shift

  • After that I have 10 days off work *happy dance*

  • Bret the cat is settling in well, we have had only 1 episode of indoor pooping so far!

  • We will soon be getting the 2 kittens, this family is going from 2 to 5 in a short space of time!

  • I am super excited about seeing Harry Potter HBP at the cinema tomorrow night

  • We have special gallery seats with unlimited popcorn, nachos, soft drinks and hot drinks

  • I have made a load of cards recently and forgotten to photograph any of them

  • The new GoGo kit arrived yesterday and it's yummy!

  • I've realised I never posted any photos from my trip to the Yorkshire Moors - here is my favourite, if we were to ever form a band this would be our album cover!

I do love a wedding!
This weekend we were at M's brother's wedding - what a wonderful day with excellent food, good company and plenty of laughter.

We spent Saturday at Wimbledon on Centre Court and what a fab day it was!
We were treated to the Women's final, between who else but the Williams sisters of course. These girls are total power houses, and they move so fast, trying to get a decent shot of them was tricky because I also wanted to watch the match! My new zoom lens came in handy though, and I got a few I was pleased with.
The second match of the day was the men's doubles - what a game! Super quick, fab rallying and lots of movement around the court - I really enjoyed it. Finally, the women's doubles and the Williams sisters were in action again. It was a long day - thre 3rd match finished at around 9pm, but we had a great time and I will be hoping to go again next year too!

Sarah's Cards' gorgeous June kit has been with subscribers for a little while now so I can share the layouts that I did with it. These weren't papers I'd have picked off a shelf in a shop, so when I first opened the box I was a little sstuck as to what to do with them, but after playing for a little while I found them to be really versatile and to suit a whole range of photos.
