Gauche Alchemy – Beach Babe

My ‘Beach Babe’ layout was featured in a Gauche Alchemy post earlier this month.  I noticed while I was catching up on the posts I had missed.

You can see my layout in the post here.

I was over the moon to realise they had shown my layout on their blog.  I love Gauche Alchemy and their fab kits, which are unlike what you would normally get.

Check out everything they have by clicking on the blinky above.

Bye for now


I Heart New York

I bought the recent copy of Glamour Magazine and this book came with it!!

For some reason; when I get a book with a magazine I assume it won’t be up to much and normally stick it on my bookshelf to gather dust.

On this occasion I didn’t and I am so glad as it was a a fantastic read, some much so that it has prompted me to buy the other two books which follow on, which are ‘I Heart Hollywood’ and ‘I Heart Paris’.

If you are after some light reading that is light hearted, amusing and funny then I would totally recommend this book.  I cannot wait until the other two arrive and I will let you know what I think of them in due course.

Goodbye for now. xXx


All Smiles on the Metro

My grandson, my mother and myself took a trip over the river on the ferry (short 5 min trip) to South Shields to get some ‘much needed craft supplies’.

On the way back we got the Metro instead and I took this photograph of them both while we travelled.

Hope you like it.
