Change of scene

Having changed my background and heading on here I thought it was about time I posted again.
Two days ago, the weather being good, I thought I would go for a walk/cycle. Someone had told me that there were some pretty gardens to see and photograph so taking my camera, as usual, and getting on my bike I went exploring. I never found the gardens but I found something probably much better, butterflies. In Severn Fields the grass was high and in flower also wild flowers abound perfect for the flutterers and perfect for me if I had patience to wait. Unfortunately I shouldn't have had my bicycle as there was no where I could prop it up so had to lay it down on the ground. Still I did manage to get these photos

52 in 10 - A Holiday to remember

I am really enjoying this year long challenge even though there have been some weeks that I haven't been able to do. Week 28's challenge was to scrap a special holiday and this one was very special.
I have a friend from church who is in her 80's and she and I had a gorgeous week in the Isle of Wight in 2007.
I couldn't do the challenge justice with just one double layout so did four pages instead

I thought it was about time I posted another freebie so here it is hope you enjoy it.
I have called it Across the Water, which is the name of a Christian music CD that I took the swirly pattern from.
Full Kit

and to show off this freebie I have done these layouts using it.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
