I am back & Octobers pages!!!!!!!!

At last I can get myself back to normal after months of manic wedding activity :-D .  More of that later as first I want to show you my October pages for the ~365 CHALLENGE~ that the lovely Kate Crane inspires!  Now I am not really into Halloween but couldn't resist a wierdy or two hahahaha!  So I have used soft colours for this month just to confuse peeps!


Here are my September pages all done.  I tried to add more writing this time and you will see there are not so many wedding hearts either as I tried to rest up before the day (as if!)  Been pretty busy though with other things such as a christening , a hen night, graduation and making loads of chutneys & jams!!!!


Now on to my daughters wedding...you can skip this bit if you like :-D  I made......

200 day & evening invitations...

80 orders of service...


SIX fiddly made-to-measure bridesmaids dresses...

80 favour boxes...

a guest book which I forgot to photograph and a partridge in a pear tree!!!!  (not really hahaha)  But I enjoyed it really even though 2 of her engaged friends asked if I could do their stuff as well!!!!! 

Thank you for taking a looksee today, its soooo nice to be back!  HUGS XXX
