June Scrapclub Single Page Layout

The sun has got his hat on Hip Hip Hip Hooray the sun has got his hat on and he's coming out to play! Isn't it glorious! Am trying to get all my jobs done so I can have a little lay in the garden later! 

I just wanted to pop on and show you the single page lay out that I made for our June Scrapclub class. I have used Twitterpated paper and fabric with matching buttons. I even got the sewing machine out, that doesn't happen very often! 

I also noticed that I missed the lovely Victoria off of my journaling, sorry about that Vic........

Natalie and I run the scrapclub once a month on a Monday evening in Maidenbower, Crawley, any ability is welcome and we love to see new faces so get in touch if you would like to come along. 

See you soon. xxx

Poorly Olive!

Whilst I was away living the life of riley in Vienna, Mr Wonka was at home nursing a poorly Olive. On the day that I went he came home from work to be greeted by our neighbour saying that Olive was in her back garden and not able to use her leg :( 
He rushed her to the vets and they removed two teeth from her leg. She had obviously been in a fight a few days before and her leg had become badly infected. Mr Wonka hadn't told me as he didn't want me to worry. It took her a couple of weeks before she could use it again but she is now fighting fit. Unless I ask her how her poorly leg is then she lifts it again and looks towards the treat tin........Naughty Olive!

(AT LAST) Stampin' Up! Vienna Incentive Trip day 4

Firstly my apologies for the rather long delay in day 4 of my trip to Vienna, I have started my new job and am not sure where the time is going. I could understand it if I was working full time but I only work two days a week!!!! 

My trip to Vienna seems like forever ago now but I think I can just about remember what we got up to. On day four (Saturday) Natalie, Jo, Victoria, Julie, Tracey and I went to the Prater theme park where we went on the famous Wiener Riesenrad  which is a bit like the London eye, but looks like it is made of Macarno. 

Here is a picture of us all as it went round, it was rather high up and not great when people moved around. 

The views were fantastic though and you could see right across Vienna. It was worth the wobbly ride to see this. 
There were lots of theme park rides there, here is Natalie, Julie, Jo & Victoria just about to get on the water ride. I wish I had joined them, it was sooooooooo hot!
Then Natalie decided that she wanted to go on the Prater tower, basically a carousel about 100 feet in the air! As you can imagine I declined and Victoria went on it with her. She was a little green afterwards but assures me that it was brilliant! I'll trust her on that one!

After the theme park we all split up and I took Natalie to the ice cream shop that she had missed out on whilst she was on the Segway tour, we then took a stroll back to the hotel, stopping to grab a few souvenirs on the way.

Once we got back to the hotel we were presented with the "March for Tolerance" (Gay Pride) march right outside the front of our hotel. 
It was a real party so we cancelled our dinner plans and had room service and plonked ourselves in the window and watched the parade, we had a ball! 

After the march we headed to the leaving meet up and finished off the evening with a trip to the bar! 

Day 5 consisted of getting up, getting to the airport and coming home.It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I am so pleased that I had the chance to go along (Thank you Natalie/Boss!). I spent time with one of my best friends and made some great fantastic new ones! Memories were made that will never be forgotten and I hope that you have enjoyed me sharing it with you.
