Starting Early by Joanna Swinton
My 2 year old Granddaughter, Bella made me this lovely Christmas card that is a treasure. I told her mum, when she was born that she is going to take after me and be crafty. My daughter does not have a craft bone in her body. I tried her with all kinds of things including teaching her knitting with the aid of my husband and a mirror, as she is left-handed. Bella, on the other hand, is showing signs and I was super chuffed to recieve this card. It's not going in with the others as it will have a special area to itself. It's things like this that make Christmas that extra bit special
Thank you Bella

The Bellagio Hotel Garden by Silvia Griffin
I am standing in front of a picture made of fresh flowers at the Bellagio Hotel Garden atrium in Las Vegas. They change the theme 5 times a year. Just sooo amazing what they make out of fresh flowers. Here is a link to past displays and a live webcam of the current display.

This new sheet I made with Great Grandparents in mind. Added Great Grandfather, mother and blanks for your convenience.

George Wins Man of the Match by Heather Howes
This is my Grandson George Winning his man of the match trophy, a very proud moment.
It's so special when I see these photos as my family live more than 700 miles away from me and I only get to visit maybe twice a year, I have 4 grandchildren and another one on the way next July, so I'm looking forward to my next visit in the New Year.

Freezing Fog and Frost by Pamela West
Its a beautiful day here today..
Overnight we had freezing fog and frost. Looking outside last evening there were sparkles in the lights.
This morning everywhere is covered in rime (frost)
I've been out taking some photos so thought you might like to see one. The design below is another one of my winter/christmasdesigns with tartan and lace
