Winged things xx

Afternoon all

Well what a fabulous few days we've had away in the "minion" (caravan) enjoying the beautiful weather and heat while relaxing and enjoy some nice long country walks in Loch Ken

The site we stayed at was so quiet and picturesque, with stunning scenery all around! The walks were rather hilly for me but we still enjoyed them, finding some geocaches and making a few of our own! For those who don't know what I'm talking about check out here, tho shhhhhhhh don't let the muggles know heeee

Now onto the Challenge this time over at Dream Valley Challenges, with another easy theme Things with Wings! Nothing beats that theme for me, one of my all time favourites!

I made the card a few weeks ago as an order for someone who didn't want their Granddaughter to feel left out when the new Baby was born! Plus she loved fairies and purple so what else could I use but this stunning wee Some Odd Girl Rainbow Fairy coloured with promakers

I would like to enter the following Challenges

Well I'm off to unpack and get my washes done while we have the perfect washing day weather!
Till next time

Lazy Summer Days xxx

Good Morning all

Ohhh its not so nice today here, been raining on and off and no sunshine boohoo! Whats it like where you are? Do you still have the glorious sun or is the dreaded rain with you too? We did have a wonderful weekend of sunshine so I can't complain too much!!

We went away to Milarrochy Bay on the Loch Lomond shores! Its was stunning, right on the waters edge surrounded by the lush hills and woodlands! Our site was right on the path of the West Highland Way and gave us the excuse to do some lovely walks!

We walked from our site to the carpark at Rowardenna at the bottom of Ben Lomond, a nice wee 6 miles walk! The views were utterly stunning and meeting all the lovely back packers had the dog wagging her tail the whole time! We decided to try the walk to Ben Lomond, another wee 7ish mile! OMG!! It was like walking up a dried up waterfall the entire time and sadly I only made it to the view point, a 3 mile distance!

I was really disappointed as I so wanted to make it, but after speaking with my hubby I realised I achieved something!! I never blacked out once and tho it was hard going I still got up almost halfway with still to come down and walk back to our wee caravan!! Woohoo go me! lol

We even managed a wee treat when we were away mmmmm
Anyway enough of our adventures

This fortnight at DreamValley Challenges we all want you to create something for SUMMER DAYS! Another easy peasy theme especially with this gorjuss weather to inspire you!

Heres my creation

I made a little Ferris Wheel as these remind me of the "shows" coming during the summer months to the park near us when we were little! I know it still happens in some places but, ice-cream popcorn and all the rides are the perfect lazy Summer Day for me

I would like to enter the following Challenges

Please check out the amazing Design Team Creations for more inspiration

Well off to finish the ironing and then get the last of my orders done so I can sort the camera out and check the rest of the pictures from our wee weekend
