Poppies With Love

Yay it's Saturday & even better its a Bank Holiday here in the UK. So hubby home an extra day. Today we are off to Rhyl for the airshow, we just want to squeeze in as many as we can this year seeing the Vulcan. Its going to be so sad when they stop flying it.
I just want to say RIP to all the people that died in the Shoreham tragedy, such a devastating thing to happen. Family & friends are in my thoughts.

Today's creation is for My Time To Craft. Don't forget you have a fortnight to enter.
