The Manger


Half term, how crazy was that !!, H did lots of great things including : an event at the library, playing Victorian games at the museum, doing a Halloween trail, watching 2 firework displays, going to see 'Madagscar 3' at the cinema (and silly mummy booked us into the 3D showing !!) and meeting up with his friends - the only slight mishap we had was we had to rush Whisper to the vets Tuesday night, as she was gagging - it turned out whilst eating her dinner a firework went off and as she gulped her food (as she was scared), some of it got stuck in her throat, so they gave her a relaxation / calming drug, so she was a bit out of it for a couple of days.

Today's image is one kindly sent to me by my crafting buddy Janice and i thought i wanted to keep the layout and embellishments simple, so i have used my all time favourite Christmas papers Basic Grey - Figgy, 3 Craftwork Cards Candy Dots and some brown gingham ribbon from the 'The Ribbon Girls', all matted on to Kraft card and all the edges have been distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.
