All Sorts Of Going On's, Blog Awards and Exciting News x2

~Hiya all out there in blog land!!!!

~It's been a busy week this past one, with day trips, a birthday party and a little bit of crafting going on, plus design team organising and other things. Here are some pics......
~On Friday, Jay and I went to Aberdour for the day, it's a lovely little seaside village with a castle and little old fashioned church. Here's a wee picture of the graveyard...........
~The gardens were stunning and I managed to capture this bee on a flower - i know it's blurry but I took about 50 photos trying to capture this bee!!!!
~This is the castle...... it's gorgeous, some of it is still fully in place and you can go inside. On the right of castle is a gorgeous room that has a painted ceiling..... it's mostly faded now so the photos didnt' come out well but you can see how it used to be...............
~I am SOOOO going back to this shop, it's got some lovely bits in it........
~And lastly a picture of what used to be the harbour.........
~Aberdour is gorgeous and I will be going back, it's got some lovely shops and the beach, perfect for a nice hot day out.

~Yesterday was my nephew, Kristofer's, 2nd birthday, so his mum and dad, Sharon and Chris had a wee Thomas themed party for him. Here he is coming into the party..........
~All my sisters and nephews were there too, which was fab. Here is Oscar with a birthday hat........ ~Sharon made the fatal mistake of putting jelly on the table at a children's birthday party!! lol dont' think she'll be doing that again. By the end there was jelly EVERYWHERE..... Kristofer and Robbie were loving playing with it........
~Kristofer's main present for his birthday was this.......
~And he LOVES it!!! The photo is him and his Auntie Clare having a play.

~Kristofer blowing out the candle on his birthday cake.......
~I've done a little bit of creating this week, a new altered duckie...... here is Yesterday's News........~I am LOVING this altering business, it's so much fun!!! I've also done some work for the Cyber Crop that's happening over at Scrap Around The Clock but I cant' share that right now. If you fancy joining in head on over, it's going to be fun. It starts tomorrow (Australian time) and is on for a week.
