About Me

I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job.

Eclectic & snaps

Good afternoon & what a lovely Sunday it is. Hope you are all having a fab weekend. It feels like forever since I posted some DT work but Today's sees the start of a new challenge over at eclectic ellapu. And the theme for the purples is anything goes. So at a rather speedy pace I did this at 11pm last night as for some reason had forgotten what day it was lol. Hope you like it.

I used a clearly besotted stamp set from an earlier release but never got round to using it. 
Also thought I would share a couple of photos from our honeymoon to Florida. We stayed on disney for 2 weeks, & for the 1st week we stayed at animal kingdom lodge and it was amazing. Opening the balcony to see giraffes grazing was awesome,

Magic Kingdom & Cinderellas castle were breath taking ! 

There was so much to see and do it was unreal. My other half went on all the rides on his own due to my back ! He was braver than me that's for sure. We went to all 4 disney parks and the 2 water parks. 
Will be back with photos from week 2 and more craft soon. Thanks for looking I do appreciate all the lovely comments I have had. Take care xxx
