Blogging Buddies

Saturday, 1 May 2010


Woo Hoooo, a bank holiday weekend is well and truly upon us - cue the rain, wind and chilly weather lol!  I am lucky not to be rostered to work at all til Tuesday so I'm well chuffed.  Plan to get on with some dreaded and do some crafting today but first have to take kids to their gymnastics class.  I was starting to feel a bit left out and considered joining the mums/adult class - nearly gave myself a hernia after I fell about laughing - reckon there's a better chance of me taking up pole dancing rofl!  Think I'll stick to walking the dogs!!

As its the weekend, its time for another challenge from the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Thankyou to everyone who took part in last weeks distressing challenge, your creations were utterly brilliant and we loved popping by your blogs to see them.

This week is the turn of my wonderful teamie Cathy to set the challenge and she's come up with a super theme of

" F R I E N D S H I P "

I've gone for another page layout this week, scrapping my dogs Dylan (little black Lhasa Apso) and Murphy (aka furry fool, golden retriever).  Murphy came to us as a young pup and Dylan came to us at five months old as a rescue dog.  They were both born around the same time and will be 12 years old in November.

These two are joined at the hip and the best of friends.  The top photo start with Dylan watching his brother - and growling, before diving for his ankles and starting one of their daily rough play bouts.  They are soo funny and I love the expressions of amusement on Murphy's face on those.  The main pic shows them in one of their more refined moments in their favorite position in the house.

I do hope you can join us.  Please check out the challenge and the fabulous creations my teamies have come up with.  Thanks for stopping by.  I do hope you can join us in the fun and can't wait to see what you come up with for this!

Take care and happy crafting.
