Were all going on a summer holiday....

Well I am lol... So I am hoping mr scheule has done his job and this has popped up this morning lol..

Sam and I are having 10 days down at Kennack Sands (The Lizard in Cornwall). I actually think it's my fave ever place... The first time Sam and I exchanged wedding rings we did it on a little cove down there (Kynance) so it holds a very special place in my heart!! (by the way we have only done it twice as Civil partnerships became legal lol!!!)

So I have 2 cards today

Firstly it's Fi's team over at Sweet stampin and this week we want to see some childhood memories...

I thought about it, thought some more and decided to combine 2 memories... I used to love dressing up and I loved dandelion clocks (I hope it wasn't just me lol) I used to waite and wait till they were ready then we had a ryhme to blow them all off lol.. oh to be a child again with no crows feet or grey hair lol... so here is my card:

The image is LOTV as is the sentiment
Papers are basic grey so Lucious which I got from Crafty Emma's
I also used the Martha Stewart around the page punch (love em!!)

I also have my CES card and this week we want to see your favourite colour combo...That's right it's up to you!!!

Easy?? Well I thought that until I had to decide lol.. but my fave colours are pink and aqua (torquise) so that's what I chose lol..

Isn't Mia just adorable? She is from a new range of wild rose stamps which you can get over at the store
as are the scrummy MME papers and pearls

Now the roses are some that fell into my basket when I went over to wild orchid crafts lol...

Right..I hope you all have a lovely week and I look forward to catchin up with you when I get back!!
