Brooklyn Bridge

I hope you all had a good weekend despite the weather. We had the most horrendous thunderstorms and heavy rain yesterday morning. Thankfully it was after we had arrived at the craft fair. Of course the weather meant less people in the morning but it did pick up in the afternoon. It's a new venture for this garden centre and will take a while to get going so I didn't do that well but hope for better next Sunday. One lady, who paints, said my cards were exquisite. Isn't that a beautiful word you don't hear much these days.

I thought I would share another layout with you today. I kept this very neat and symmetrical, unlike last week's grungy layout of Alice in New York. I echoed the lines of the bridge with the HOTP brown paper and the baker's twine. The bridge sticker was from a pack I bought in America. I choose the letters, which were from Poundland 2 or 3 years ago, as a complete contrast.
