This week I got to colour up the gorgeous

Meljen's images are so adorable, have a look for yourself HERE.

So, fancy playing along this week? Hop on over to SSW for all the details & feast your eyes on the creations from the other DT ladies.

PS: We make the most of good weather here as sunny, warm days are few & far between.
On Sunday my hubby, the girls & myself, went on a drive to Castlewellan Forest Park. The walks around the grounds & the lake are beautiful. We also spent quite abit of time getting lost in the maze there which is apparently the largest & longest in the world. Below is a photo of the girls & I at the bell in the centre of the maze. Behind us are the beautiful  Mourne Mountains,  another place you might like to visit if you are ever over this way :)


  1. Love the card - the colours are fab!

    You weren't too far away from me while you were on your travels! I'm only a few miles up the road from there!
    My one and only time in the maze was when I was with my sister and she was 8 1/2 months pregnant! We were half way through before I realised it wasn't the best idea! lol!


  2. I love your card Genevieve!!!! Your colors are so eye-catching!!!! And those starfish on the bottom corner are soooooo adorable.

    Phillip is home from his trip and LOVED every minute of it. He took over 500 pictures, so looks like I'll have some scrapbooking in my future!!!


  3. What a great picture of you at the maze...sounds like a lot of fun. Your card is so pretty, I loved this image. I really like the way you've colored yours and the papers that you chose. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  4. The paper colors you chose to use with this weeks image are just perfect! I love the stars and the tiny tag too!

    Peace & Luv,

  5. Hi Genevieve, I love your card, it's so cute and the colours are very pretty using the aqua. Love the rope embellishment and the cute little star fish it's a very pretty card. I'm so glad you had some lovely weather in the weekend I know what you mean about being few and far between I've been there 3 times now. So glad you had some sunshine and had a great day with your family.
    Lets hope that this weekend is even better.

  6. Ohh Genevieve, I sounds like you had alot of fun with your kids in that maze. I think it would be fun to do that. It looks like gorgeous country. It ahs been so fun to see all the pictures from our DT. As much as I would love to travel, I am not sure that I will ever have the chance. So, it is fun to see it though other eyes. Your card this week is darling. My husband was in the Navy so it really bring back alot of memories. Your colors and papaers are a perfect fit. have a wonderful week.
