Lots of bits and bobs and a new family member too!

Hi Everyone!

Thought it was about time I updated my blog :)

The last few weeks we have been kept really busy with the kids being off school and having some of my family popping over for a visit from Dublin, which was lovely!

Not much time for crafting, but can now show you a card I managed to put together in time for my friends Carole's birthday.
Those of you who follow Carole's blog may recognise the little ticket. I know Carole is very fond of using these in her cards, so thought I would see what I could do with it, and here's what I've come up with, an Elephant card! :)

We also took a visit to Butterfly World in St.Albums during the Easter break, which was amazing!!!!
It's an ongoing project, but wonderful to visit such a lovely place, and see such beautiful butterflies fluttering around you in so many different shapes, sizes and bright colours. We even managed to pop some on our fingers, but would you believe it, forgot to take our camera :( defo worth another visit though, and the camera is ofcourse a must :)

We also took a trip to lovely Dorset last week-end which was just wonderful!
So many places to visit, including Durdle Door which is stunning!!
A heck of a walk to get there though, as you can see from the pics, but so worth it! and yes, it really does look like a dragons head dipping into the sea :)

While we were there, we popped into my friends Carole's. Apart from giving her the shock of her life (as she didn't know we were coming, lol!) she and her family gave us a lovely warm welcome, and we all sat in her beautiful garden and had tea and homemade cake (as made by Carole) It was just scrummy as was her beautiful home :)

Lastly, and perhaps the biggest thing of all (at least for us :) was that we now have a new member to the family :) Our little puppy, Barney!
He is just soooooo scrummy!!! but can honestly say it's like having a baby in the house again, lol!
He is a great little boy, only eight weeks and seems very calm, and already loves to play fetch, which is fab!
Anyway, I will keep you posted on the doggy progress, and would welcome any advise on good doggy insurance, but for now, here are a few photos, hope you like them....
