Morning all papercrafters - another lovely sunny day - hopefully for us all

BIG thanks Steph for looking after the thread, such lovely items and a brill theme

Hope this weeks theme gets ideas buzzing, especially with schools/colleges etc closing for the summer soon.

Phew - that was tricky, the normal way of copy/pasting didn’t work, anyone else having trouble?

My holiday was brilliant, weather perfect. We revisited places we had been to before, Lindisfarne, Inner Farne Island, Bamburgh, Low Newton, Dunstanburgh and visited new ones, Alnwick Gardens and Castle (Hogwarts), Alnmouth. Beautiful county.

Hiya all!

@cariadcrafts11 Carol, no probs always a pleasure! So pleased you enjoyed your hols, you had a good weather aswell! All the places you visited are lovely aren’t they, did you get attacked by the Gilleymot birds?..
I think that’s what they are called, not sure of my spelling…lol

Did you get your fish and chips?
I was waving again! :wink:

This new set of tags are ideal to wrap a lovely thank you gift

Hi Steph

I was waving like mad lol. We were attacked by the arctic terns but we were warned and wore hats!!! and YES fish and chips at the Neptune at Seahouses as recommended. We liked Berwick upon Tweed too, walked the walls.

Back to reality now tho

I remember the Neptune well, that’s all Seahouses smells of …fish and chips! Lovely though :wink:
Totally agree Berwick is lovely, great little shops and market place.
