We are going through a funny old patch right now, and what with all the building disruption from the bathroom and redecorating Hayden's bedroom, my house is an absolute bombsite ... and it's beginning to get me down.  This coming week, I have two funerals to attend on consecutive days, followed by two days of work.  I did book a lunch out with a friend on Monday (unless she goes into labour as her baby is now imminent!)  I'm anticipating very little or no crafting on my agenda this week :(  However, I'm told to expect great progress on the bathroom this week, as things are starting to go in instead of being ripped out.  The bath is now in and tiling should commence Monday - I'm hoping that things might move along quite quickly now (with no more indoor water features downstairs please).

Anyway, I thought it was about time to share another of my layouts!

Considering how simple it is, you would not believe how long this one took me!!!  Normally, I love my Core'dinations in perfect condition, but for this layout, I had a lovely time distressing and sanding it.  I handstitched the flower leaves and stems, used my new Nestabilities and a photo taken of Phil and I on Easter Sunday (thanks Alex!)

A bit soppy I know, but it's not often that I get a photo of the two of us that I actually like so had to make the most of the opportunity!

Next time I blog, it will be with happy news ...

  1. Lovely photo of you two! Great LO! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Sending hugs and sparkles for next week Carole, it sounds as though it's going to be stressful for you. xx
    Love the LO! Great photo (not soppy at all!) and I love the stitching etc.
    Hugs xx
    p.s. I know what you mean about getting photos as a couple that you like. I can't remember the last one of DH and I that I liked - think it was Sahara Desert 2001. lol
