Gone for an icecream!

Here is a photo I took on a recent holiday that me and Carl enjoyed on the South Coast of England. We had gorgeous weather for photographs! I just love the beaches down there!
I called this photo "Gone for an Icecream"

I had my camera 'glued' around my neck for the entire holiday, snapping away at anything that caught my eye so you may see more pics later!! My Husband says the only time I don't have the camera is when I am in bed.....sshhh I haven't told him I get up and take pictures of Jones in the night..... he he only kidding.

I admit I'm an obssessive photographer at the moment but not THAT obssessive LOL!!
Mmmhhmm, I could just eat an icecream right now!!

Take a "Pecan" see what I've been bakin"!

I was in one of those funny moods the other day where I wanted to do something really creative but didn't know whether to start sewing, crafting, cooking or what!!? I ended up getting the cookery books out in the kitchen and baking!!!! I came across a recipe for some little Pecan and Apricot cookie bites.

Don't they look delicious? ....and they were too!!
The recipe made so many that I had enough in this batch to give some to my friend as planned without having to make another set.

For the little gift box I used one of Lauren Meaders Templates. I LOVE her templates, I must have all of them by now, she is so talented!

And the papers are digi-papers from Pink Petticoat who I also ADORE. I have so many of their background papers and digi stamps. I hope you like the box? It's ideal for jewellery and little gifts but I thought, "Hey, why not cookies?" He he!
Template : MTME templates "under cover"
Papers : PinkPetticoat Colour collection papers "Daisy Bouquet", "Pretty Doodles" & "Kraft" (which you will find as part of one or two sets) 
Embellishments : Olive Sheer Ribbon, Prima butterfly,

Me?? starting a blog??

Yes I have finally decided to do it!! Don't know what was the deciding factor in the end but I just love looking around all those crafty bogs out there with so many ideas and so much inspiration I just had to join in the fun even it's its only in some small way. It's all new for me so cannot wait to see what lies ahead on the blog adventure.....
