Bunting Galore!

Hello friends

Thank you for all your kind comments regarding my Dad yesterday,
I'm pleased to say he is home now, he will need rest as he has sustained a nasty head injury
but he will mend and I'm sure within no time will be down in his workshop making
wonderful woodworking projects!

(Lacelady - so relieved to hear your daughter and others are okay after their crash!)

Today a scrapbook page featuring my family - this time me, Mitchell and Bella
get a look in...not just Elliott!
A really simple page - again using up all those paper scraps with a lot of bunting.
I've used Nested Pennants to create the four strings of flags.
(Don't forget even if I haven't got the Spellbinders die you would like in stock
I am always happy order it for you).
I also like to mix up fonts on a scrapbook page for an interesting look.
This weekend I am driving Elliott up to Coventry for another gaming convention,
(goodness I'm a glutton for punishment!)
It may also have something to do with the fact that it is his birthday :)
The event is called ....
Very apt!
I will have a couple of days to roam around Coventry while he sits playing games.
I've already looked up some craft shops to visit and I thought I may take a
trip to the cinema too.  I'm sure a few photos will pop up on Facebook.
Mitchell is on hand at home to keep a check on Bella, kittens, website and more!
Other news....
over the last week or so the new Spellbinders Design Team was announced and for those
that messaged to ask what was happening with me... 
I continue to work for Spellbinders and will have exciting details to share with you all soon!
(I'm sitting on my typing fingers as I cannot say more just yet!)
Take care friends, enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend.

Hi Christine, I am playing catch up and want to say that I was so sorry to hear about your Dads accident. What a shock for you all. Glad that he is on the mend and will be home soon, bet he can't wait. I'm sure your Mum will be happy to have him home too. Please send them both my very best wishes:)
Love the memo peg wallet yesterday, so sweet. The dies are great, so many options.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ELLIOT, I hope that he has a great time in Coventry, at least you will get a chance for some rest and relaxation after so much rushing around, bless you. And at least you can go knowing that Mitchell is looking after everything at home.
I love the whole page, the bunting looks great, what a wonderful pic of you all : )
Oh, can't wait to hear what you doing now with Spellbinders. Hope we don't have to wait long to find out : )
Have a great long weekend everyone.
Take care.

Great pic in your page today Christine, though I daren't get into scrapbooking, I have thousands of photos, it would take goodness knows how many scrapbooks to house that lot. Thanks for the special mention, all continue to improve.

I'd like a couple of days free in Coventry, I'm sure you will find a craft place or too.

So glad Dad is back home safely, I hope he continues to improve too.

Hugs and pleased your dad's ok, Carole Z X
