Saturday off!

After spending a week at work, and an additional 15 hours writing my class's reports on top of that workload, at last I'm done, and can have a day off! I won't think about assessment week in the next 5 days, with all the marking and data that will generate.  I'm just going to have a day pleasing my self.

So this morning I'm off to a crop in Bedworth with my Crafternoon friends, and hoping to get a couple of pages made.
More Brit stuff going on today: The Trooping of the Colour, which is a celebration of the Queen's official birthday, big parade in London etc etc. Thinking about it, if she has had 2 birthdays a year since 1952, does that make her 146 officially? :)

Here's another page using my current favourite set of papers, the Red Whit and Blue Portobello Road kit.

The photos are those I took of Katie in town with the replica WW2 planes a while back.
And the journalling is about reclaiming the pride in being British from the white-supremacist right-wing nutcases who seem to have been claiming it for their own over the past few years.
I made the banners using an Anna Griffin stamp set, layering them up.
Hmm, a controversial post today!

Not controversial, just stating the facts. What the loud, rude, white supremacists don't realise is that the vast majority of people don't give a flying wassname who lives next door as long as they don't disturb us. All we want is to get on with our lives quietly - or noisily - without hurting anyone. That makes them think we are a pushover, and that will be their downfall.

Hope you had a great crop - not long until the summer holidays now!
