Perfect day for...

It is raining, it is windy and cold, it is a perfect day to stay at home and do crafty things !! First of all I decided to make a page for Sketchy Thursdays. I don't normally get a chance to play until Tuesday when I have some time off so it was a real treat. Another multi photo lay out this week. I just love them. Here is the sketch...

When I first saw it, I must admit, I wasn't really keen but as I looked through my computer file, I found some pictures that I took when we were in Gibraltar. Andrew was really keen to take us bowling there, and before we went, I really couldn't understand why !! You go to Gibraltar to see the monkeys and the dolphins right, but to go and play bowling, that wouldn't have been my priority !! However the bowling alley was in a old building that had been lovingly and carefully restored and it was pretty special so, it was a good idea after all. Well, it was a good idea until we started playing and I lost ! I hate losing, I am the worst looser ever. I would never let the kids purposely win, but this time, they beat me fair and square !! ( well, I didn't have the little barriers on the side to stop the ball disappearing in the gutter !! but still ! ) And Andrew beat me too ahhhhha ahhh !!. So here is my page...

I thought I would also enter this page for The Paper Variety that encourages you to use different alphas.

And since I had spare time on my hands, I decided to do some work for our school summer fair. For those who know me, I  get quite heavily involve in the school and end up doing lots of little jobs. This year, like last year, and the year before, I am in charge of the raffle, collecting prizes and begging for goodies. This is a painstakingly long job but to make my work harder I decided to present the prizes in pretty envelopes !! Silly me, I really need another job !! Still, theylook nice now !! and I know, some people ( well, I can name three !! ) will appreciate the work involved !!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week,
