To Lands End and beyond....... well almost!!!

I never tire of this view out from Falmouth harbour (3rd deepest in the world) 
there's always lots going on 
After a really busy week, a trip to Birmingham for an MRI scan on my pesky hip, and my first Graphic 45 workshop I hopped (quite literally) into the car and headed off to Falmouth, Cornwall this morning to spend a few days with my sister by the sea....... 22 miles short of Lands End. 
There really is nothing like this part of the country, rugged, windswept and beautiful what ever the weather.  Amazingly the sun followed me down, so it looks like we're in for a nice few days. Might even hop off to the Eden Project.

  1. Hope you enjoy your trip Clare - I envy you - Cornwall is my favourite destination - and living now on an island - its not so easy for us to visit as we used to! Am loving the workshop I am taking (online) so thanks for offering the classes.

  2. Fab photos Claire - daughter is looking at Falmouth Uni as one of her options - got an open day to go to in September to have a look round - not sure I want her to go sooooo far away from home but it will be her decision once we've done the rounds.

  3. Hi Tam, thanks for stopping by my blog. Its a great place for students, and both Uni and College have a really good reputation. It is a long way but lovely to be by the sea. Inspires creativity :-) ..... well I'm hoping so!!!! will wait and see on that one :-) Enjoy your trip down.

  4. Какая красота) Даже это выражение не высказывает все мои эмоции.

  5. Beautiful! I'm reading a murder mystery by Tara French - it's set in Dublin - makes me want to come back for a visit and see more of the Isles; we only stayed in Dublin, our son was playing croquet!

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
