Think Monday Think ATC's and More.....................a layout

It's been a while so thought I would do a layout tonight, as it was the theme for think Monday think atc is beaches - this isn't exactly on the beach but the walk down to the beach through the tunnels in Ilfracombe North Devon whilst we were away on holiday last week. Doesn't seem like a week since we arrived back though,.

Holidays = & a bit lost - i suppose

been on my holiday to Devon for a week and it was nice to get away. Been a bit too engrossed with making inchies and twinchies - moreso inchies ............... here are a few pics from me holidays. We stayed in Tiverton at a travel lodge - and we visited, babbacombe, ilfracombe, woolacombe, Taunton, Lynmouth/Lynton - Barstaple and all around the area. Lots of meals out as we were staying in Tiverton, all in all the weather was nice too - brill holiday.

twinchies for UKS - the last ones now

although I hope they do another inchies and twinchies for me to get my teeth into. A heart for a heart.................using washi tape - loving that stuff just now. Studded flower - the flower was gold leafed and sprayed with gold sparkle from Crafters Companion - love it. cuttledbugged flower embossed and crackle glaze. I made the embellishment years ago ! - love the background on this one too - 'TIME' the background on this one is so luscious - handmade with spray perfect pearls and water - the edging is a zip cut down and my new 'hearts' cuttlebug die - simply Devine to work with. 'Stars' - more lusciousness from washi - tape. As I said, loving this product at the moment. updated this one - with a metal flower embellishment those Suze Weinergs Beadazzles get everywhere - and I mean EVERYWHERE & last but not least in this twinchie swap : - flowers and leaves.

atc's for a swap

all of the backgrounds were hand made - one in particular used rock candy and high shine gold spray paint - IRL it's gorgeous.

vile rotten sticking awful day at work

strange kinda day

supposed to have gone to Doncaster to meet up with son and his GF - they had a massive row (?) and she decided she wasn't going out with us ! - meaning not going out at all.................we were half way there - DS rang us and said it's pointless coming up afterall - we said we are half way there - he was upset - we decided just turn around and come home. Got back to Tamworth and checked out the cinema - nothing on until 2.30 that we wanted to see - so we had an hour and half to kill = went to Roasters and had a sandwich and then Matalan for new trousers for me - but couldn't find anything. Finally got back to cinema to see ironman 3 - brill film enjoyed. THEN a Chinese tonight - but as we are on Slimming World - kinda proper and all that - hubby gave back the freebie prawn crackers !!!! and didn't go get the icecream he fancied for afters - well done him - and I shared my Chinese with DD so we both felt quite virtuous. Want to be 9lb's lighter by 17th June - as I have two whole weeks it could happen - fingers crossed anyway.

even more inchies (for UKS swap - rainbow inchies) - orange

this is a little inchie book on 'orange' colour therapy - orange colour therapy relates to 'creativity' - that's probably why I love orange so much.
