Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
It is so good to be back after my lovely relaxing holiday - will share some photos with you at the end of this post.
Firstly though I must apologise for my late posting of my DT make for the new challenge over at
and this week the theme is
DON'T BE A SQUARE
I decided to decorate one of my many MDF heart shapes - ready for a Craft Fayre I am hoping to do on Saturday at Dumbleton Village Club
MDF Heart from the MDF Man
Design Papers: LOTV 'Dress Shoppe'
Pearl Bead String from The Hobby House
Sentiment: Inkylicious 'Flowers That Bloom'
Range of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.
Challenges I would like to enter:
My post title said I have some news to share so here it is:
Whilst on holiday I had time to think about what I wanted to do with regards to my blogging and DT commitments and after much deliberation I made the tough decision to step down from most of the fabulous Design Teams I have had the honour to create for over the past few years.
My heart and soul just hasn't been in it for a little while now - maybe because I have had and still do have so much to do - especially for my eldest Son's wedding in just over 10 weeks time - but also the fabulous opportunity I have had recently creating for Papercraft Inspirations - for which I am so grateful.
I have been blogging for just over 6 years and feel the enthusiasm isn't the same as it was when I started - so I thought if I took the pressure off with DT work that it might return.
I will still be creating for Papertake Weekly - one of my most favourite challenge blogs from the start and also Sugar Nellie who I have very recently just joined.
So you will still see me around and I will definitely have more time to come and visit you all too.
I have made some fabulous friends on the Design Teams I have created for and I hope we can stay in touch - thank you all for your support and understanding.
So on a brighter note here are a few of my favourite holiday snaps from our recent very relaxing break:
A pool with a view!!

My brother and his partner also on holiday so close to us we were able to meet up for dinner one evening.

Thank you for popping by to see me - hoping to start playing catch up with my visits later today.
Have a fabulous day.
