SUCH FUN......

I absolutely adore going away with the WOW guys....admittedly it's hard work, but the fun we have ... sure makes up for it.

Here's Richard and Archie (the owners of WOW) giggling away like schoolboys :)

Here's Steve from WOW....this guy is THE funniest bloke you'll ever meet, his wit is so quick, you just can't be anything other than happy around him :)

This little guy (Alberto) has nothing to do with WOW..apart from the fact that he was our server in the Italian restaurant ....oooo young man !!!!! Just thought I'd get his picture on here !!!

You all know the lovely Nina....oh we did have a giggle

The thing is I can't even remember what was said that made me laugh so much !!!

This month for Fantastic Ribbons we were asked to make BOWS....

So here's what's probably the quickest layout EVER..... With added dimension, thanks to Fantastic Ribbons :) :)

Whoops....sorry the picture's a bit wonky ;)

I quickly made a gathered flower using the red grosgrain and attached it top right of the photo, then I wrapped the lovely Center stitch ribbon around the photo and tied it off in a 'faux' bow then added a multi bow with the bakers twine...

And lastly, I added 'leaves' to the stems of the flowers by way of more 'faux' bows...

And there you have it, a quick and simple layout where the ribbon and paper did all the work !!
