Another Busy Monday

Back to work today but I had such a wonderful weekend with Paul and Pippy.  On Saturday we managed to find Paul a bargain deerstalker, he absolutely loves hats!
He certainly looks the part and he is a huge Sherlock fan.

Saturday gave us the "Supermoon" it was the closest the moon had been to earth since 1992 and it meant it was 40% larger and 30% brighter, I forced Paul to come to the beach with me to see it and he certainly wasn't disappointed: 
It was mesmerizing to say the least. 
And I was pleased to work out how to take night pictures on the camera!

Today I have set the weekly challenge over on UKScrappers.  Here's my example layout: 
As it's my second time of setting a challenge I asked for 2 photos to be used.  Also no cutting into a nice new sheet of 12 x 12, only scraps are allowed, which is good for stash busting.
I've really got back into using my stamps and this is one of my favourites: 
Spring is in the air and so is talk of street parties for the Royal Wedding so I thought bunting was appropriate for the last element of the challenge: 
Alfie is so cheeky jumping in my bed, if I sit on the sofa he tries to sit on my lap but, when we got him from the rescue centre he was half the size he was because he had been starved.  Not only was he starved of food but also of human company so we forgive him anything.  We're used to him jumping in our beds, we're used to him climbing over us on the sofa and we're used to every meal coming with a side order of dog hair but we wouldn't have it any other way :)

Happy Monday

Hi there, I've just found you via Shimelle's forum.Your moon photos are lovely :-) designs said...

Found you through BFS and am now a follower! I can totally relate to your dog story. It reminds me of why we let our little rescue dog get away with everything. They deserve to be spoiled!
