Bank Holiday Sunshine...


Happy Monday! Happy Bank Holiday Monday to my fellow UK peeps! :)

Here's something you don't often see on a bank holiday:

You Make Me Smile

Ha! Well needless to say the sun hasn't paid a visit here today, but we've spent a lovely afternoon with my guy's family eating some good food and catching up.

Not only is the sunshine visiting my blogeroo today to make up for the typical bank holiday weather, it's also visiting to remind you of our current challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey. We want you to be inspired by the weather. There's so many different directions you could go with this challenge; I chose to use up some of those ribbon scraps I've been hoarding to create this sun.

There's still a week left to enter so we'd love to see you play along with us! :)

Right, I must dash again - sorry! I know I've been pretty absent here in Blogland recently, but it's for a very good reason. In fact my reason is really exciting but I'm not allowed to spill the beans.....yet! *wink*

Catch ya later!

Love this, Aimes. Even better that you get to use up some ribbon scraps. I think I could use some every day for the next 27 years and still not run out... :/
