Pretty as a Picture

Hello Bloggers hope you have all had a good weekend.  The weather here was wonderful, wall to wall sunshine, it was a bit windy and just a little on the cood side.  However if the sun shines it makes us all feel so much brighter.  Don`t know about you but I manage to get loads done when the sun is shining.
We have been busy in the house, having the bathroom re-done.  We have taken away the bath and replaced it with a big shower cubicle.  John does not have the power in his arms to push himself out of the bath.  John Jr did say "its a family house people expect to see a bath"  I told him it was "our" family house and the bath was never used.  We do have a shower room with a double shower now we have two.  We just need to get the flooring organised and that will be it.
I was looking through old files that I managed to find.  I found some Sugar Nellie images I bought years ago, it is all boys in our family but the Sugar Nellie girls are so sweet I had to have some.
I do not do a lot of stamping and did not do colouring till I met Maureen Killen.  She gave me a few few hints and tips plus lots of encouragement.  I think she dreaded her Postman coming, I used to send her all me projects to keep in exchange for advice.

    Oh my, the colouring is so superb, you would think it was printed, and with pencils too!
    We'll have to get Maureen to do a workshop on here when she's better.
