It was Billy's committal service today at 9.00am, so early start for us all as we were not sure what the traffic would be like, what with it being rush hour and road works, but the journey wasn't too bad. I still can't believe he is gone and will not be walking in next Thursday.

I came home and have stayed in, the road have been cleared but the pavements haven't and it was very slippery underfoot.

A while back Helen sent me this photo of Andy and Ben at Rannerdale Knotts in the Lake District. It has been used on a calendar Dads and their slings (probably not the right name)

and this is the layout I did today using it.

Special Moment Special Place

The page was done for a challenge on UKScrappers.
1)to use a given sketch
2)To use paint
3)stitching on the page
4)to use a line from a poem
I had fun finding a poem to fit the photo, good old Google came up trumps with an obscure one by Mary C. Landon "We shall climb a windy hill where clouds roam" seemed perfect.

I have another page to share, one I did over the weekend

Winter on the Canal

It was for another sketch challenge, one that I set, so the sketch is my own.
For GB pre fun night
Thought as I had set the challenge I had better do it. These photos were taken in Skipton at the beginning of December, so I've added it to my Christmas Season album.

Today I am grateful that I didn't fall on the ice
That the funeral went smoothly
And that I have a nice warm bungalow.

Super layouts, Mary - definitely the weather to stay in the warm and dry and craft!

I was sorry to hear your news about Billy. I'm glad the service went well x

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
