About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Seas of Red

I have just scrapped some of photos from our day out at The Tower of London last October.

A couple of photos are from the internet as I didn't have a helicopter or drone to get the aerial shot and we didn't actually make it to the Tower Bridge side either.

First we took photos of each other on the train from Tattenham Corner to London Bridge, then our walk along the Thames to the Tower.

The Shard is a big feature now, however we didn't realise it is built over London Bridge Station! I noticed this as we walked back as I spotted a sign and looked up! Shock horror we were right beneath it, so I told the lads to stop and look up too. They were just as amazed!

The poppies were a lovely sight to behold on such a sunny day too, loads of photos were taken so it was quite a job to select a few to scrap!

Finally a couple of snaps inside the Tower grounds. I used the tops of the tickets on this page and the bottom of one as well. What an exhausting day but well worth it. 

I wonder where our poppy was?

I shall never forget seeing all the poppies last year either BJ. They were incredibly moving and deserving of the lovely LO you did x
