On a Wet Saturday in May

Saturday and it was raining, just the right weather to gather together for a Scrapaholic Crop. Debbie and her team of willing helpers came with lots of nice goodies for sale and as usual I couldn't resist, it's a good job I only have me to answer to.

I did manage to get half way through doing a paper & glue layout using two of my wedding photos, they are black & white, as I was married umperty ump years ago, but this allows me you use any colour combination I like, and as I had two sheets of the cardstock left over from May's kit I used the eggshell blue on black.

I am very pleased with it now that it is finished and made me realise that I ought to do more paper layouts.

I have been over to see a friend, she had some flowers for me for the church. Had to dodge the rain showers though just about managed to do so.I am glad I went, she is in her 80s and gets lonely, I ought to think of her more often and visit. I arranged the flowers and of course took a photo of them. The Yellow Irises were from her garden and I picked the cow parsley on the way home. Put together with some greenery and displayed in a yellow vase they make a bright splash of colour. I will take them to the church in the morning.
