I must share this

My Sister-in-law is an amazing artist and whilst we visited her over Easter she was completing a picture of some elephants.  She has just recently started to do portraits of family members in pastels and she asked whether I could email across some photos of Charlotte so she could have a go.  I chose a few so she could pick which one was going to be best.  Now I had no idea which one she had picked until the postie came yesterday.  My hands were shaking as I opened the large envelope as I was so excited to see the finished picture. 

Go check out her website she really is a remarkable lady and I'm proud to call her my Sister-in-law.

Les has been away for the past 10 days on business visiting Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand it's been a long trip and I'm looking forward to seeing him tomorrow night.  Thankfully Mum and Dad came up last week which helped the time go more quickly.

I ordered some photos from Photobox last week, now I normally order from Snapfish but I thought I would have a change to see what the quality was like.  I have to say that I like the different size prints that you can order.  I ordered a few 5x5 photos and really like the size, so I created this layout last week with one of them.

Right I'd better run, thank you for dropping by.
