Ladies Camera Club

4 seasons in one day

Flipping heck, we started with a scorcher today.
We got our summer glad rags on, put the gazebo up, dusted down the soft furnishing for the patio set and got comfy in our sun trap of a garden. We let the tortoise run wildas we put our feet up and just soaked up the sun (a very rare occasion in our garden). Of course lady muck kept on snapping her fingers for this, that and the other (but I was glad to go into the shade at times) plus we had to top ourselves up with nice, ice cold drinks.
Belle and I picked daisies - check out the scooby doo slippers!We picked 105 in fact, she counted them and the lawn was weed free after that), chatted about our puppy coming home on Thursday and all sorts of knick knack chitty chatty's. Then, as you do in the hot weather, you plan a BBQ. So off mummy trots to Sainsbury's for kebab ingredients, sausages and the likes. The supermarket was chocka block with like minded BBQ peeps. The whole of Wigan was sure to smell of charcoal come 7pm. I get home, I put the stuff in the fridge and I go and catch more rays (with my sensible SPF15, I may add). Then a lil wind blew up and before you knew it, claps of thunder indicated that we tidy up the entire summer patio area and retreat to the great indoors. Then the heavens opened.
Joy!
Looks like the food will be cooked in the conventional way and were were gutted that our bangers wouldn't have that fab BBQ taste. Soon the wind stopped and the rain halted so we threw the bricks on the BBQ real quick and cooked our food quickly, before the heavens opened again. I have to say we timed it perfect because no sooner had we taken our last bit......it piddled it down.
Before it got too dark, I managed to take a picture of a layout I taught yesterday over at Dawns Studio. This was the first lesson the students had taken with me and without using patterned papers. Dawn had asked me to incorporate two crackle paints on the schedule so I manged to come up with this. I have to say that the crackle paint is a bit special. In the past you had to use up to 3 mediums to achieve a crackle finish - now, with rangers distressed range you can achieve it with one swoosh of paint. I had a great time meeting new ladies to scrap with who loved the technique as well as using acetate, stamping on a layout with paint (using dawns design daisy and swirl stamps - deeeeelish) and using eyelet setters for the first time. I wish the eyelet would come back into fashion, I love them and I do have 15 million of the little sods to use up. So if you live in the Accrington area or fancy dropping by the studio in future go and check the schedule here from time to time to see when myself, Dawn or indeed other people are teaching. Dawn gets a lot of visitors from all over the country to hope they catch a glimpse of her - and more than likely they do and more than likely she spends time chatting or advising them of this and that. Its such a thrill to see her customers enthralled by her lovely spirit. Her shop also mail order so if you fancy that crackle paint effect, you should try it. Im hooked.
After strawberries and meringues I popped back to Dawns house for tea. I also took some pictures of her three very characterful pooches during the rest of the daylight before sundown. Each dog has his own lil foible and wouldn't really perform for me. I had to climb up a beautiful but very steep bluebell bank to try and catch one of the dogs at rest in between play. Eventually I got a couple of nice shots of these dudes which has put me in good stead for when Eddy comes home. I can't wait to understand our dogs character but these lil fellows gave me a snippet of the fun to come.
Not long after, a yummy salad with absolutely everything green, red, yellow and green again was presented to me with a cooked salmon and I just couldn't cut into it. I mean it was monstrously artistic, devilishly tempting but far too good to be cut up. I have to admit that as hunger pains were killing me my head sprouted ravenous horns and I attacked the whole plate in no time (Minus the beets, I'm not a fan of beets and I forgot to say - sorry JJ!). I have nightmares about beets thanks to my mum - who eats them like they are going out of fashion.
Im glad I had a lovely day both yest and today (see, it's true what they say - I really am Pollyanna!).
Its a lovely feeling to be surrounded by such nice people.
And then I get to go home to even nicer people too.

I just love your blog. I am originally from England so its lovely to read the way you put things!! Sainsburys, bangers, piddling down etc all mean something to me.
Your photos of the dogs are just fantastic. Can't wait to see the photos of your new puppy.

Unreal weather wasn't it. It didn't manage to get over the pennines to Leeds but I definitely thought of you when I saw it on the TV.

I love all your little british words and slang. I have a bit of time following but it is fun.
Sorry about the weather. Been raining here for about a week now!
Got a pic of my little dog on my blog. He thinks he is a cat.
I love your layout. I wish I was that creative.
PS~ I love beets!

I love the techniques used on the LO! Crackle paint is my favorite. I love the think texture. I'm glad little bit got to have a day of relaxation after all she had to go through.

Hi Kirsty, I am an appreciative blog visitor from Australia. Yesterday I had an overwhelming desire to purchase a weekly glossy mag (New Idea) to read during kids swimming lessons. I NEVER buy them. But lo and behold, there was an article about you and Ellie! Did you know about the article ? Have you seen it ? If not let me know and I can pop the mag in the post for you. Fantastic pics of the pooches by the way.
Best wishes,
Erika
