Mojo Monday meets Papertake Weekly

Evening girlies I am back safe and sound from my travels, a bit knackered as I never sleep well in hotel rooms, but what a lovely break we had. Lily had an absolute ball at grannies and came back spoiled rotten (but thats what grannies are for eh lol) The drive down to Carlisle was ok, no mjor problems but we arrived to discover ~ horror of horrors the hotel didn't have a bar!!!! (serves us right for booking the cheapest travelodge in the area and not checking it out properly)

So I mopped up Ian's tears and dispatched him to find a supermarket to buy some drinkies for the weekend and we ended up having a really good night on the Friday with Ian's son and future wife although I dread to think what the people in the next room must have thought cos we were laughing so much...........I am living with the hope that the next door rooms were empty ;o)

We spent Saturday looking round The Mill which is where the wedding will be and I am soooo impressed, it really is a stunning setting and so well thought out and maintained, I am really looking forward to the wedding :o) I wanted to show a few pics girlies but as usual never leave a man to do a woman's job.........he took his super duper all singing all dancing camera and didn't take one picture at the venue...............MEN!!!

We had a lovely drive home to pick up Lily then a quick stop in at Tesco and back up the road to Kingussie. The sun was belting so we sat in the garden for the rest of the afternoon. After Lily was put to bed etc I decided to have a wee play, and here is my card for the Mojo Monday and Papertake Weekly Challenges. The paper was free in a magazine, the image is of course a Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie and the flower, ribbon and brad are from my stash. The scalloped edges are done with the Fiskars threading water border punch.

Hope you girlies all had a lovely weekend as well :o)
