When the rain hit France

So in the last few days we have had quite a bit of rain here in France too, no escaping it this year it seems. Ah well, plenty of time to create. I know some of you have been laughing at the amount of stuff I took along, but hey ho, as the rain was pelting down on our gite, at least I did not get bored.

Some of you know I am working on a nature inspired mini with enough pockets and spaces for about 35 tags. Well here are just a few more (I am not showing them all as some need more finishing off at home with embellishments etc).

Here is also another journal page in progress:
Well, the sun is just about starting to break through again. Hope it's bright and sunny where you are and happy Sunday everyone!

Gorgeous art. I love all the shaped pieces. the vintage colours are fabulous.

I don't know if it is me or not, but it rained when we were in France last year but it was still extremely warm & it didn't seem so bad. Here, it rains & the temperature plummets!!

I can not believe you are in France right now and crafting how very French ;0) I do hope you having an amazing time and the rain doesn't look as though it's spoiling any of your fun at all. Gosh you did take lots of crafting things though didn't you. I hope your collecting lots of empheria to play with as well as some yummy French goodies have fun and don't forget to tell me all about it when you get back xx

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
