 I had more comments on my scrapbook layout on Sunday than I usually get for these and I really appreciate your kind comments and thoughts for my lovely friend. We are off for our monthly massages today and lunch out with a little shopping too. I am looking forward to going to the Summer Crafting event at Doncaster on Saturday and meeting up with my blogging buddy Kate Wile (Downrightcrafty)s at last. Do let me know if any of you are going.
