March Simple Stories Sn@p - part 3

SUPPLIES | Tried to use up a few scraps with the insert card above.  The top (lined) half is by Simple Stories and the bottom is Project Life Honey. The stickers spelling out "American BBQ" are called Sweet Shoppe Letter Stickers by Lilybee Designs. The star was cut out of old 7 Gypsies paper and the "It's All Good" red sticker is by Simple Stories.
Finally finishing off my March Project Life.  I had hoped to be half way through April by now, but c'est la vie! Anyway, this is part 3 for March. We returned again to The Bluegrass for another American "southern" meal!  And it was just as good as the last time! This time in addition to dinner we also had some dessert, the salted caramel cheesecake. Absolutely sinful! It was served with a handful of salty popcorn which seemed odd at first, until you had a couple bites of cheesecake & then popped a few pieces of popcorn in your mouth. Perfect together. I also love the old style white & blue enamel dishes they serve them in.
SUPPLIES | The orange "Looking Good" insert card is Project Life Honey.  The brown sticker on the picture in the upper right hand pocket is by Simple Stories as are the stickers spelling out "Salted Caramel" on the picture on the bottom on the left.

A snapshot of Rupert at Braywick, resting from a game of fetch, during a warm sunny afternoon. So warm he had to take a break in the shade underneath a bench until he caught his breath again. A photo opportunity!
SUPPLIES |  On the right the background chevron paper is by Simple Stories.  The giant green arrow card is a 3x4 Project Life card that I cut the bottom inch off of and turned it sideways. The pink heart stickers are by Simple Stories.  The green brads are by Papermania. The bigger pink striped and checked hearts (one on each insert) are punched out from scraps of PL cards.

SUPPLIES | The "you make me smile" sticker is by Simple Stories. The green asterisk is by Papermania and the pink enamel dot is by Freckled Fawn from the Studio Calico Sugar Rush kit.

Hard to believe that we were still having roaring fires in the middle of March and Rupert's favourite spot is always directly in front of it.
SUPPLIES | Background Paper from Dovecraft called Garden Party.  All three stickers "charmed life", "delightful" and "fabulous" are by Simple Stories. The blue and pink stars are by Studio Calico. 
 One evening while we were in Marlow for a personal appointment we realised it was getting near dinner time and that by the time we arrived home, made dinner etc. it would be quite late.  So we decided to stop at The Marlow Donkey, which was just around the corner and grab a bite to eat & a drink. It has been a while since we have been there but it always makes for a good night! 

SUPPLIES | Both the blue polka dot paper and the faded blue chevron paper are Project Life cards.  All the alpha stickers are by Simple Stories. The blue starts are Studio Calico. The blue enamel dot is by Freckled Fawn.
Now that I have been working a bit more consistently it is nice to get back in the salon again more regularly.  One way that will definitely always make you feel better about yourself, is to go to the salon to have a cut and style! I was talking to my hairdresser about maybe doing something different, a new style or cutting all my hair off, maybe a radical tint, but she suggested something a bit less radical yet still daring.  A touch of the colour pink in my hair! With all that is going on with me at the moment she suggested that a few streaks like this might be more suitable, and sensible. I like it!

SUPPLIES | Bunting is by Helz Cuppleditch called Riverbank Revels, something I picked up at Wilkos, believe it or not. The black and white polka dot card is a Project Life insert card.

This is a bit about the bizarre weather that you get here in the UK.  We were standing out in front of the Cox Green post office, on a warm sunny day and all of a sudden a dark gray cloud rolled through the sky over us, raining down small pellets of hail on us, making us quickly retreat to the safety of the car. Moments later, the cloud was gone and the hail quickly melted away on the windscreen.

That's it for this post.  Another short one, but at least another completed layout!
Onwards and upwards! 

Thank you for stopping by to have a look and let me share my layout with you!
