Bubbly Stuff and More Photos

As we were away last Thursday I didn't do anything for my usual slot on Bubbly Scrumptious blog, but I'm back this week with a card project that uses the new June kit from Bubbly Funk.
The kit is based around the lovely Andrea Victoria collection from My Mind's Eye which is full of beautiful designs and a lovely, unusual colour scheme of greys, white and golds.

I wanted to get ahead and make a card for my aunt's best friend, who is also a customer of mine - she orders special cards from me for other people, so I thought that as she has a special birthday coming up it would be nice for her to be on the receiving end for a change.

All the info and instructions for this card are over on the Bubbly Scrumptious BLOG, and the June kit is available now from HERE

Now a few more photos from our Northumberland jaunt.
We didn't spend as much time on the coast this time as we usually do so if you'd like to see some of our photos from last year you can click here
Anyway, here are some of the new ones - some are mine but the best ones are Hubby's and he was having a lovely time playing with his new Canon 40D, bought the day before we left!

The first three were taken in and around Blyth

The beach huts is one of mine - I know that because I can see hubby over there on the sand deciding what angles he wants to play with!

This one is Hadston Sands - a huge beach near my favourite Druridge bay - which we didn't get to this visit. boohoo :(

Next one of Hubby's arty shots, taken up the coast at Budle Bay

St Mary's Lighthouse is on a tiny island - there's a causeway that you can walk over at low tide

I'd never been to Seaton Sluice before - well not that I can remember. It's hard to believe that somewhere with such an ugly name could actually look so pretty!

And eventually, on the last evening we even made it across the road from my Aunt's house to Newbiggin prom. That's a disgraceful admission, but we were so busy this trip that we almost didn't get a walk along my "home" sands!

I'm going to sort out photos with a "Roman" theme for next time.

Hope you're not getting bored with my piccywics yet!
Thanks for popping by, don't go without leaving a comment - I do love to see them!

So did hubby's plotting result in a photo of the beach huts that was exponentially better than yours? lol! More fab photos and evidence that the sky is indeed always blue up here ;o)

I love to see your pictures Kathy and hubby's too! You definitely have a thing about beach huts, you should make a mini book of 'beach huts I have known and loved' ha ha ha
