May's Here

This year is going so quickly and I can't believe we're in May already!  Before we know it we'll be counting down to Christmas again! :)

I had a lovely weekend down with Paul where I did a little bit of craft shopping, a visit to the market and a trip round a couple of boot sales.  I did get a bargain coffee table for £1 and some grow bags which I need to get ready for the garden.  While we were at one of the boot sales I saw this and couldn't resist taking a picture:
I'm thinking they should have put the sign on the over side of the fence :)

I also had a bit of time to do some scrapping and here's a layout I did using one of my favourite photos of Maddie, taken about 9 years ago:
We were on holiday at Chesil Beach in a time when Maddie was always happy to have her photo taken.
I use October Afternoon papers, my favourite range, and one of the Sarah's Cards kits.
And I thought the sentiment on the tag was perfect.
I intend to spend the rest of the day relaxing and catching up with my blog reading before getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.  I also need to give Alfie lots of cuddles because he cracked one of his claws this morning....ouch.

I hope you're having fun in the sun.

Gorgeous LO!

That photo made me laugh - the sign definitely should have been on the other side of the fence. LOL The LO is gorgeous, really colourful and simple. I like how you've used the date as a title instead of words. The sentiment tag is lovely too.

Time certainly is flying, but hopefully it's at least 7 months before the snow comes again!! Love the first photo :) and your layout is cute!
