Hi once again My Scrapbooking Friends.
As you must have heard me mention earlier this month, MDH and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary.
This is a L.O I made with a photo that we took ourselves on the shores of Loch Melfort one rainy morning ( there were many rainy mornings) in August. The flowers  and garden theme continue, because just 500 metres away were the famous Arduaine Gardens that were tucked away behind rows of tall trees and hedges to protect the gardens from the fierce North winds....
I used have once again used things from thePrima, Romantique kit that Lena from Enjoy Scrapping.has put together.
I fussy cut around  the border of the paper ,coloured the frame that was created. I then painted a border on a piece of cardstock, glued down the piece that I cut out and then stitched a border around it.
I once again used elements that I cut out from the "Ha'Penny "sheet of prima Paper. I used a little piece of Prima packaging,can you spot it?  The 2 shells are from the collection of shells that we picked up on the shores of Scotland.
You will notice that I cut the lace from the kit into thinner strips so that it was not so overwhelming. I have also stripped some of the cardstock die-cuts off their thick backing so that they can blend into the background a lot easier, and two of the little flowers are hand made by me. There is also a secret tab behind the photo with some journalling.
As you all know, I much prefer chocolate than getting wet, that is why I loved the little saying Cocoa and Chocolate...needless to say I had a cup'o tea and a chocie while I was drying off at the hotel!

I have not entered a L.O. for the Bird id the Word challenge blog for ages ,the word is 'Together" this week .
 I love and leave you...need to get on with my house-work and then get organised for my show on
Zeffy Scraps this evening at 22H00....We will be making a birthday card for my sister Vickie.
P.S I may add the little video I took of the Arduaine Gardens later today, it is a bit shaky as I was walking and filming.....but the gardens were stunning and out of this world!
