My Weekend and a Sketch!

Monday's here again,the weekends seem to go so quick! We had a lovely weekend at Brean,my Mom and Dad took the caravan down for a week,so we decided to go down and join them for the weekend and shatter their peace.We just had a lazy couple of days lying on the beach,reading and soaking up the sun.

We stopped in The Old Rectory Hotel in Brean,it is a quaint old house with a beautiful cottage garden.Sunday morning was very warm and sunny so we ate our breakfast out in the hotel garden,we could have been in the Mediterranean it was so idyllic. A perfect weekend!

Here's last week's sketch from Sketch Inspiration:

Yeah,I can use flags again,I'm just loving them at the moment.

I used Cosmo Cricket 'Early Bird' papers and the dressmakers dummy is from The Girls Paperie 'Paper Girl' stamp set that I stamped onto some patterned paper and cut out.

Looks like you had a good weekend enjoyed by all.
