Today was the crop at Eclectic Keepsakes over in Marks Tey near Colchester and a great day was had by all!
The morning was spent 'doing your own thing' and I took advantage of this by doing the first two layouts for the Shimelle prompts (will blog them tomorrow) In the afternoon we had a superb page designed by Laura Buckingham who took the class. How lovely are these papers? They are from the Delovely range and they just scream 'Summer'! Such scrumptious colours!
I had two pictures that I had acquired from my daughter's 'Facebook' pages (such an amazing source of photographs, she'll never pose for me, but give her friends a camera .....) They were taken at a wedding reception a couple of weeks ago.
Other news for today, my travelling son has reached Budapest via Zagreb and is there for one more night before they go onto Bratislava and then Vienna. He sounds like he is having an amazing experience and loves Budapest. He has obviously found an internet cafe - hence the email - as he has managed to access his uni account and discovered that he has passed his 2nd year exams with a 2:1 overall. Phew!
How hot is it where you are? I don't recall temperatures like this here for quite some time. Must be time for a hosepipe ban soon!

What a cute layout! It's cool here (60-70 f); it never gets too warm here by the coast.

I love the layout, Deb. Great call getting the photos off Facebook. Haha!

How hot is it here? Yesterday was 108 (that's 42c) and humid. We are approaching "monsoon season" where there are usually clouds and some amazing thunder/lightening storms. Bleck!!! We are tired of it at this point...can't wait till autumn!

We had an inch and a half of rain yesterday and I'm sitting here today with my jumper on!!

Pinching photos off Facebook? Now that's clever.
