'Wash Day'

I have no idea where this week has gone....I haven't even phoned any of my friends, I've just not had time?? But no idea why! This weekend is going to be the same....today we are off prom dress shopping with Katie, off to Shrewsbury. So yes gonna sneak in a quick crafty snoop around the QVC outlet. Then  tonight we are off over to our friends house for a chinese, which will be a giggle. Tomorrow, Gentleshaw yay Alfie snuggles!! Then on Monday whoop, my very good friend Kim, her hubby & grandson are coming over for the day....so excited & we are going to Gentleshaw so they can meet Saxon, Quaver, Alfie & all the other animals...oh yeah & staff lol....

Today's creation is for My Time To Craft, where this week we have a recipe. We want you to pick 3 things from the list to use on your creation....


There's our list, now the hard thing is choosing your 3!!!

I was lucky enough to win some images awhile ago Di's Digi Stamps & had totally forgot about them until the other day. Typical I was looking for something else, but did find this cutie!

This image reminds me of when the girls were little & Nige put Danni up her very own washing line so she could help me.....we used to wash all her & Katie's teddies clothes & some of Katie's clothes nearly every day so she could hang them on her own line!!  Was really good as well because Nige had made it so it could be brought inside, so no matter the weather Danni always got to hang her washing out!
Oh that's made my eyes leak, thinking back to when they were babies xx
