Holiday crafting

Good morning folks
Well, I've been trying to unpack my bags and sort out the studio all morning and I can see light at the end of the tunnel so I thought I'd pop in to share a few bits with you.
As I said yesterday, I was VERY good crafting wise while on holiday and did not buy a lot

 Only this stamp set and I decided to get one of the Posca white pens that everyone seems to be talking about. (Not tried it yet so I'll let you know what it's like when I have)
Then here are some of my journal pages done while I was away. I didn't do a lot but when I did I enjoyed it.

 This is one of my favourite poems; it makes me smile every time I see it hanging in the place we stay at so this time I used it. Don't you think my stamp makes a great sheep?

 Trying my hand at decorative faces. Quite pleased with the way it came out.
 I loved this page. I was sitting by a Tarn at a place called Watendlath doing this. It was lovely.
 This is still in progress, but I had to show you how great the stamps are!
And, it just wouldn't be right not to share a couple of pics of the holiday.... This one is at Bowlees, another favourite place with  4 four waterfalls in walking distance, a cave and lots of stunning river views along the way. This was one of the places I sat and worked in my journals while Susan read.

Then, how about this for a place to have supper, high on the Buttertubs pass we sat right on the edge with the most amazing views....

Hope you all have a fab day. Better get back to the studio.....

Loving the pages - especially the sheep (half-hour drought - genius!)... and that Apothecary set is starting to look like a must-have!
