Fine weather, Fun rides and Findings.....

Mark and I went to Pleasure Island Theme Park today with our friends Chrissie, Richard and the kids..... Georgia went on all the easy rides...... . ..........although she was a bit more adventurous than last time!!
Chrissie and Rich went on some really scary ones!!!!!! .....and I failed to read the first line of this sign!!!!
Yup guess who had wet knickers all day?
Even Ben joined in on the action!!!!!

On a crafting note:
This little set of drawers cost me 25 pence from a bric-a brac table. It was dirty pine and still has a sticker on the back with a bar code so it can't be very old. I painted it with white gesso and cream acrylic, the edges were rubbed with bronze cream. The drawer fronts were covered with K&Company Blue Awning paper and mod podged to seal.I often say to Mark "Do you like it"? and he says "yes but I don't know where you are going to put it" and I say "in my OWN craft room one day"!!

I am starting a jewellery making course in 2 weeks and thought this would be good to keep all my findings in (and purchases.......note the play on words!!).
Once I know what I need I will add drawer labels to the fronts and keep my bits and pieces in little zip lock bags.

Hope you all had as much fun as I did this weekend...the nice weather definitely helped!!
