There's a Circus in town

OMG what an amazing thunder and lightning storm we had last night. It was right overhead hand made the whole house shake.  I thought it was going to fall down at one point.  The weather was so bad I was in two minds whether to drive down to Falmouth as I'd planned   but I bit the bullet jumped in the car and set off just after 7 and arrived at 12. We stayed up chatting for a while so by the time I hit the sack I was shattered.  I'd forgotten what time the seagulls get up - they woke me at 5 with their pesky squawking and when they'd made sure I was wide awake, they flew off to make a racket somewhere else.  I love being by the sea lol!!! 

A circus came to town this week with it's Big Top, clowns, acrobats and colourful caravans.  It's arrival inspired me to make just one last pop up card with the Le Cirque papers for my sis (She loves that collection) before I travelled down to stay with her.  She loved it :-)

We're off to Trebah later for a wander with the camera.  Gorgeous gardens that meander down to the Helford River.  Fingers crossed the drizzle blows over to the other coast before we get there.

Well I think that's enough from me so many thanks for calling by, enjoy your Saturday and catch up again soon :-)

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
