Back home

..after our night away last night :) The venue was lovely (though the bar prices extortionate!!)with huge grounds and a golf course (we were very tempted to re-enact a few HSM scenes...!!)We spent afternooon wandering round the shops in Reading before heading to the hotel.Typical that we went on a weekend when Reading FC were playing at home...and their stadium is where the park & ride service runs from.So you have to avoid certain times for trying to get home again!Anyway, we made our way safely to the hotel, despite me being a dozy moo and only printing off directions on how to get to Frankie & Bennys from the hotel, and not how to get to the hotel from the M4!! Guess I really am ruled by my stomach after all!As where we were staying was pretty much in the middle of nowhere, we decided against F&B's and ate in the bar instead.Not long after that though we both ended up with thumping headaches and I was fast asleep by 10.30!After the rare treat of a McDonalds breakfast (I know, we're so classy !)we were home again by 11am :)the girls were happy with their pressies...and hit of the day were the free paper Krispy Kreme hats we picked up in the Krispy Kreme coffee shop for them,along with a free doughnut each we were given!It really is the simple things that make them happy :)

This is my Pencil Lines LO for this week,using my favourite ever Basic Grey range :)Love the black & white photos with these papers!I turned the sketch clockwise.
I used
Basic Grey Bittersweet papers
Heidi Swapp clock stamp
Amercican Crafts flair badge
AC Puffy thickers
Jenni Bowlin letter stickers
MME overlay
Prima bling
Whilst I'm still not sure about my handwriting on the overlay I love how the rest of this layout turned out.
Now, I know it's a bit obvious that I love Prima bling,but I love it even more now!The clear swirls just didn't show up on this page,and the brown ones didn't match.So I dug out a permanent pen and coloured the clear ones the perfect shade of brown.So now I've realised I can make them any colour I want,I need to hunt out some more clear crystals as I've nearly run out:)
