Birthdays with Crafty Friends

Hello there my lovely blog chums....hope you've had a great week!

We had an absolutely smashing time away in Eastbourne with my in-laws, the weather was actually really nice and I must say, I haven't laughed as much in ages! When we got back the following day was GSCE results day, and I was delighted and very proud of Cameron's results - he has achieved a grade 7 (used to be and A) in Maths and English Literature, and B's in everything else......he starts in 6th form next week. Took the kids for a day out yesterday to Howletts Zoo,nr Canterbury, it was wonderful and I could have sat all day watching the Gorillas. 
So all in all, it's been a lovely week off, and I am feeling glum at the thought of back to work on Monday - but I'm going to forget about that, just for now, and tell you about our fab new Crafty Friends challenge.

our theme this time is
