Birthday Girl Part 2 and Spellbinders® Video

Hello friends
Well the birthday girl enjoyed her day.
Unwrapping gifts.
 A new squeaky soft toy - the 'squeak' will be gone very soon!
 No dog's birthday would be complete without a bone!
And a trip to the park.  
We visited Swanley Park and as you can see we had it to ourselves.
It was a typical British Summer day - high winds and threatening rain!
Nobody brave enough to boat on the lake.
I was delighted that Elliott felt well enough to come along 
(he's had a rough time this week with headaches and more).
Whilst I was wearing a coat he goes about in short sleeves and eats ice cream - 
the medication makes him feel boiling hot all the time.  
He still smiles though - one amazingly brave boy.
Now for something crafty.
Each week Spellbinders® have a live stream video on You Tube
showing techniques and more. 
You can watch it as it happens and ask questions or watch later at your leisure.
This week Stacey was joined by her sister Cindy and the subject was 'Frequently Asked Questions'.  It is very informative and you get to see one of my cards and if you are really eagle
eyed a project of mine is on the shelf in the background too! 
I've posted a link here to the video.  If you would like to tune in each Tuesday it normally
airs around 6pm our time.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
Take care.

Hi Christine,
Good to see Elliott, he looks really well despite the fact that he is probably feeling awful, I do hope that he starts to feel a lot better soon. Looks like Bella loves opening pressies. My dog Misty just loves ripping the paper to pieces, she's not really interested what's inside anymore. Hence she helps everybody else open their presents. Enjoy your Sunday

Hi Christine

Glad that you all had a lovely day yesterday. It's nice to see Elliot enjoying himself, even if he didn't really feel up to it. The fresh air will have blown some cobwebs away. Enjoy Sunday.

Great to see Elliott, even if be was hot - at least yesterday's weather would have made him more comfortable (it's blowing a gale here, with squally showers, so he'd love a trip to Ireland!

Hi Christine,
and Belated Happy Birthday to Bella who obviously enjoyed her day.
Good to see Elliott, I sure hope he'll be feeling much better SOON..
Where was Mitchell? You didn't have him "chained up" to the craft bench did you?
What a "tropical heatwave" we had this weekend - hope we don't have another one too soon. I don't mind waiting until autumn for that!
Regards, Rose
