WOYWW #371 - Goodies & Scrapping

Nearly forgot myself today, whatever was I thinking?

Here's my desk with some new goodies as I thought I'd treat myself to some dies instead of just buying magazines with freebie dies!!

Could have done with the Picket Fence Distress ink for my rainbow ice page below, had to use my stain for the white.

I have my next set of photos ready for inspiration and have done the following double LOs since too.

Geocaching on Leith Hill back in March this year. 

Loved all the carved animals on the signpost.

Then on Easter Monday to Leigh for some more geocaching where we got jolly wet in a field as it bucketed down on us. The River Mole was running very high due to all the rain but the sun came out as we traveled back through Brockham.

Finally, here is my sunflower in full flower, thought you'd like to see it too. It's way taller than me now!

Happy WOYWW everyone.
