An Anniversary and Weekend Cropping

I promise I won't do this too much but after Storytelling Sunday I thought I'd tell you that it is our 31st Wedding Anniversary today.......
                                                                yep- a classic !

.....
But then I did get these delivered at work today which was a real surprise

It was time for the monthly Eclectic Keepsakes crop on Saturday. I missed the last one because I was on holiday - so I was really looking forward to it.
There was a smaller class this time as lots of people were on holiday so we were all together in the middle of the hall.-which was nice as we all got to chat to each other.
Karen had made some lovely cakes,and as always very thoughtfully made a couple without chocolate on for me.Sorry about the photo but I was using my phone and it didn't come out very well.

We did our own thing in the morning as usual - then in the afternoon it was time to do the class Karen had designed using  Fancy Pants Beach Babe papers and chipboard and some Echo Park hybrid elements.
I was a bit unsure about photos as we don't 'do' beaches but I was really pleased with the photos I chose in the end.


The time absolutely flew by, before we knew it - it was 6 o'clock and time to get home for some bar-b-queuing ..a lovely end to a lovely day.

Happy anniversary to you both, and what beautiful flowers :)

Such lovely layouts, I must admit I struggle with holiday ones to. Although nothing like a good crop to get you feeling creative
