About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . 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.

Linthwaite house hotel

Morning , I'm typing this as I get ready for my late shift at work ( big sigh ). Thought I would pop on with a card and a few pics of the day after the wedding. I managed an hour of craft at around 2am the other morning I am finding it so hard to get back in the swing of things with sleeping etc. but at least I made one. I have used G45 botanical tea. Let me know what you think.

So I thought I would share a few snaps of what we did after the wedding........
The day after the wedding when everyone checked out the hotel my new hubby had told me he had booked lunch in the lakes and that was all he was prepared to tell me as he wanted to surprise me , and wow thats exactly what he did ! We drove to a place called linthwaite house hotel, he had hired a summer house on a little lake - just the 2 of us. It had a fantastic picnic, champers, chocs, flowers and even a little teddy bear. We just sat in the quiet ate & drank, i was blown away. Apparently people usually hire it for proposals !!! Romantic or what

My hubby didnt want to give the car back on the Monday ! He loved hiring it. 
It will certainly be the only time he ever drives one lol.
I will be back with more craft & honeymoon snaps. Take care hope you liked a peek xxxx
