"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who just pops by.
I cant believe it is a whole week since I was last posted anything.  Been a busy, busy, week.   Since I was here last I have rolled down Sand Dues, paddled in the sea, been to see trains, eaten far too much but had fantastic fun.  Rest day today ...... well we will see!!!  We are not doing anything with John, Audrey and the boys today.  Houses have to bee cleaned, washing done etc:-
J & A are off out with friends for a meal this evening, we are having the boys for a sleepover.  Robert will have to be in bed and up early tomorrow he is playing a Football Match and he is the Goalie!!!  He would sleep with his "kit" on if you let him, however he has agreed to sleep with it is all in a neat pile at the side of the bed where he can see it.
I will be missing again most of next week, we will out and about again.  The boys only have 2 weeks of holiday left, we will be packing in as much as possible.
Here is my "Oldie for Friday"

This is a project I did for a Challenge, something I don`t often do.  
It was an In the Pink Challenge, I got a place for my efforts which was rather nice
It is just a little box full of buttons topped with a SB Die (think it is Lacy Doilly) with an acetate window
Triple Bows are Meiflower Organza Ribbon using my Handmade Bow Maker

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for visiting I hope to be back on track with regular Posts soon
Till next time

    Fab oldie for Friday. I thought I would join in with this fab idea.

    So glad your having great days out with your grandchildren, but doesn't it make you tired or is it just me.
    Snap my grandson Dylan is a goalie too, and I can well understand your comment about the football kit.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
