Tims' tag for July.

I haven't left the country honest! I am trying to re-fit my craft room which has meant taking everything out and stacking it in the spare room, not quite there yet I had more than I realised! I have kept one box of essentials which has meant that I cannot papercraft for a while but I wanted to try and keep up with Tims' tags, here is the link for his July one. Not quite everything I needed to hand but I did my best!

I have put my seahorse under the sea, I didn't mean to but couldn't put my computer in front of me while I worked and so got things slightly different from Tims' tag. Also I can't find the box with all of my distress bits in and the sand is a darker yellow, but I followed the recipe and love the technique! I didn't have the movers and shapers to get the size of the sand dollar right so I used a mother of pearl button and some gold paint that I could reach!
As well as the craft re-furbishment I have had the gift of a new grandchild, Heidi Barbara Ann and she is beautiful. I finished a summer cardigan, the top of a lap quilt, visited Yorkshire to see the Tour begin and am making what feels like hundreds of wedding invitations for my youngest daughter on my lap, so I have kept myself busy - oh yes and work of course!  If you are visiting me and haven't forgotten I exist then thank you so much, I miss you all and hope to be back in full swing in the not too distant future! Big hugs to everyone. xx
