Wet Wet Wet!

Here is my little haven this afternoon, almost totally under water!!   It is on the highest spot of Leigh on Sea, with the benchmark outside the house to prove it - wonder what those lower down are like?

Here's a double layout I did at our all day crop today.   It was for the sketch challenge we have on our UKS team - set by Stacey for July.   Photos of the torch relay as it passed the end of my road.   Needless to say the blue skies were NOT on the relay day!!

Time to stand and stare

Another one from yesterday - Mia and I when I was homesitting and she came over for lunch.   Such a happy day together.

Chinese gardeners

This is a layout I did yesterday at our little Special Needs club (called that because of our need to eat chocolate cake, drink endless coffees and chatter all day as well as craft together!!)   They are photos of the incredible gardeners who work in Shanghai.   The close up of the flowers shows some lovely stuff called Clearly for Art.   You stick PPs on the back, die cut, then heat the plastic side and bend the flowers to shape, giving a good 3D effect.   Lovely stuff!

Thanks to Total Papercrafts for their usual superb kit!

OK - so I am showing off again!!

My garden is looking simply wonderful at the moment, probably due to all the rain, so I thought the least I could do was share it with you all!!    Justifiably proud I am.
