Hello friends! I hope you are well. I’m extremely happy because I’m writing this post from my Mum’s house in sunny (very hot) Portugal ! Yes I managed to get through the rigorous paperwork to make the visit from Ireland. I haven’t seen my Mum and my bother who lives in Spain just over the Portuguese border, in over 2 years!

This is my view this morning.

I’m so enjoying seeing my family again. On the down side there’s a heatwave from the Sahara so it feels like living in a sauna! Very different from the mist and rain of Ireland.

So I’ve edited a video whilst here for a mid month reminder of the Lavinia stamps Creative challenge. Up for grabs this month is £40 of LS vouchers. The new theme is ‘ Woodland friends’ … A theme jammed full of creative posibilities!

You will find the video tutorial on how to create this here

As usual the product links can be found in the description box below the video on YouTube.

In the meantime here’s a taste of Portugal

Mum’s favourite salad!

I hope you are well wherever you are and that you have been able to reunite with family too!

Don’t forget there’s still time to join the challenge. Check out the fabulous samples from the rest of the team for more inspiration and of course our friendly Facebook group

Till next time….

  1. You must be so pleased to see your family! Money often limits family get-togethers in different countries but Covid restrictions have been at least another 3 levels of complicated! xx
