A Day at the Seaside.

What beautiful weather we're having,I just love sunny days, it makes you feel so much better.I really wanted to go to the seaside this weekend,so we headed to Torquay on Sunday morning,bright and early.It was great to sit outside drinking coffee overlooking the harbour.

After a stroll around the town and another drink sat outside,I had a glass of cider this time as it was after 12p.m.which I've been told is socially acceptable by my eldest daughter,we headed to Teignmouth.We had a game of crazy golf which was so funny because Mick plays golf and he thought he was going to be really good but he was rubbish.
Myself and a few friends went to Sunrise Crafts on Friday evening to do some scrapping,I managed to get one LO done.I used a Pencilline sketch for inspiration and used my new Thrift Shop papers and lots of Prima flowers.

Another sketch I've used this week is April's Prima Build A Page,I really loved using this sketch.I used all Prima on this page.

The last LO I've done this week was a challenge from The Colour Room.Once a week they give you a sketch and a colour palette to work from.Here's this weeks.

I love the gorgeous summery colours they've used,I don't use purple very often and struggled to find some in my stash.I found some Crate paper that I'd had for ages so used that.I also don't use multiple photo's very often so I really enjoyed doing the sketch.
I'd like to thank my pal,Jackie who has given me a Kreative Blogger Award.

I have to list seven creative things I have done:
1. My nan taught me to knit when I was about 7 years old.
2. I learnt to cross stitch.
3. I started cardmaking 10 years ago when I went to Hobbycraft show to get more cross sitch kits I saw a demo on heat embossing and as they say the rest is history.
4. I then fell in love with scrapbooking.
5. I love to take photos and always have a camera with me.
6. Recently tried to crochet but not very sucessful.
7. I've just started to use Pro-markers. I find colouring in so relaxing,I think I'm regressing back to my childhood.

I'm now passing it on to Lisa and Claire.

I've got two SU workshops to do in May so I need to get some serious crafting done for samples using the new products from the mini catalogue. My friend Dee has asked a few of us round her house tonight for a crafty night in so hopefully I can get some done there.
Back soon!

Thanks for the tag! Dutifully done and passed on!
Love the layouts - so pretty and such gorgeous colours. The one of your Gran is perfect vintage and the sketch based one is beautiful - looks a great design. I might be using sketches more this month for LOAD.
Hope to see you in May!
