Vintage Leaves Stamp Class

Hello Everyone,
We're back from our Summer Holiday and fully back into the swing of Crafting!
The New Autumn/ Winter Catalogue went LIVE while I was away, have a look its on the left hand side.  Really is a fantastic one this year.  More on that later.
This week we used the Vintage Leaves stamp set with the matching leaflet framelits.
There is another leaf stamp set available as well the light hearted one which you can also use with the framelits.  Both lovely.
I choose two colour combinations, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive with the Early Espresso and then Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and the Early Espresso.
The instructions are on the right hand side if you want to play along.
We had a two part Summer Holiday.  First part we went to Rome, Italy.  Thanks to Maria and Gordon who looked after Sid for us, which we really appreciated, especially as they have such a long journey to come to us down south.  Thanks a lot Maria and Gordon.
We had stayed in a hotel just 200m from the Vatican City, my goodness what a lovely place.  The Sisine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica were gorgeous.  Made even more special that our boys really enjoyed it and was appreciating how lovely the buildings and museums were.
Although trying to get a good photo of the three of them has been the bane of my life!
We visited the Colosseum on the Sunday which was a very hot day but the roads were closed to traffic so that was nice.  We had to visit the Vespa Museum which was close by as my hubbie has a Red one.  Our boys got there revenge on the photo's by making us do this!

After we came back, I did a couple days of painting our revamped conservatory while the boys (lazy devils) watched two whole days of cricket!  One was an England match in the Rosebowl in Southampton. OH the peace!
Then it was time to drop Robert back to University, so the day was spent shopping, packing and loading up our car.  After we settled him in to his new place, Hubbie, Sid and I went on a little mini fun break.
We booked a Shepherds Hut in the Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower. hee hee
So much fun, just the two of us and our doggie.

The site is on the cliff and we got to walk to the beach.  To my Surprise there were cows down there.
I LOVE COWS.  So that was really nice.

Anyway, on with the Crafting.   I only have 4 places left for my Christmas Extravaganza if you want to come along, Email me.
Thanks for looking,
