Colour Renovation.......So Exciting!

Hello! Hope you all had a lovely Easter. We have been away on Holiday to France for a Week. Lots happen in a week!!!! hee hee.

I am so very excited to tell you (Thanks Janette!!!!) that From 1st October Stampin UP are bringing to Us ALL an exciting New Colour Palette to play with.

What a fresh new look to our Creations. I can't wait for Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Melon MAMBO!!!!!!!!!! WhoHoo! Makes me want to decorate.......I wonder if Dulux sell Rich Razzleberry Paint?????

The colour families are all changing as well. They will be called Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles. MMMM!! Which one will be my new Favourite as at the moment I am an Earth Elements Girl? Roll on 1st October.....

Therefore, Lots of colours will be retiring, so if you have a favourite, you have until 30th September to stock up. Hope they have a boat load of Lavender Lace and Pale Plum....

We had a lovely holiday in France. Such a relaxing break, just what our Family needed. It's been a long Year so far with one thing and another but a relaxing week has recharged all our batteries.
We stayed near Compiegne just outside Paris. There is a brilliant Castle called Pierrefonds. It's where they film Merlin which is on in the Uk. They were just starting filming again on the 8th April. Unfortunately they only wanted People with LONG Hair!!!! OH! Well!
My Four Boys (Hubbie, Two Sons and Sid our Border!) thought they would try posing when I wanted to take a photo. Trying to get a proper photo of my family is a hard job!!!!
This is the Village Centre Pierrefonds, with the Castle towering over it in the back ground. There's normally a gorgeous shop open which sells cooked meats and potatoes but unfortunately it was closed on Tuesday's.

We had our Lunch here. The weather was lovely that day and believe me! It had been pouring down before hand.

I managed to get this lovely photo of my Hubbie. Finally a nice photo - Cheeky devil.

This is our Campsite La Croix du Veux Pont. It's the fifth time there! Hopefully it will be available for next Easter!!!!

It was raining so hard on Easter Sunday that we ended up watching Movies most of the day. We had a knock on the door when our host wanted to take a photo of Sid. He was famous!!! Hee Hee. We didn't quite understand why this person wanted a photo of us all but apparently it was for a competition as it was raining and the egg and spoon race was cancelled.
Well We won!!! A Happy Family on holiday Photo and Sid was picked as the Winner. Here he is, Actually he did alot of this (We all did!!!! hee hee)

Bless him! He was so good and recognised all over the campsite. He's new name is 'Is that Sid? hee hee
Well I hope to get some bits made but I am decorating my Craft Room this week and doing some Spring Cleaning.
Thanks for looking,
