Good evening all. Hope you've all enjoyed the same lovely spring weather we've had today.

Had a good trip up to Edinburgh to the Sincerely Yours show and had a good spend. Also got to meet Dawn one of my teamies at Crafting for all Seasons - although it turns out we've probably met several times before when eldest was attending the Dental Hospital a few years ago!
The show was quite busy but not so busy you couldn't get into the stands to see everything which does mean you spend more lol! I bought some new dies, cardstock, chalk paint, a Flitter Glu starter kit and 3 tubs of flakes, a tag kit, some die cuts, a Martha Stewart PATP and probably a few other bits which evade me for now!!

Sharing a quick layout tonight to cover a few current challenges.

Created in Craft Artist using "Raindrops" from Daisy Trail. The photos were taken many years ago when we took the boys on a cruise calling at Coruna in Spain on the way home from the Canaries. I've never seen rain like we had that day and we had to take shelter to avoid becoming drowned rats!!

Challenges entered:
Child's Play - Mary Poppins (insp by umbrella)
Digitally Sweet - April Showers
The Pink Elephant - anything goes
