07/08/2017 Creative Mondays Blog Hop...

Happy Monday and welcome back to this week's 07/08/2017 Creative Mondays blog party linky!

How are you this fine day?

It has been none stop around here all week again, with the youngest children off school. Last night we went out for a meal and drinks to celebrate my 2nd eldest Son coming out of his 2nd year of Uni with a 2.1 and a placement with an amazing top worldwide company. I am so pleased for him and such a proud Mum.

Now onto this weeks feature posts from them ones that linked up last week:

I love this post from Pauling on her Birthday: 27 things I Would Tell My Younger-Self. Especially no 2. Accept the things you cannot change: I am always worrying and it is no good worrying about things that have not happened or things you can not change.

Hands up who wants a slice of Fabby's Rhubarb & Strawberry Pie? This looks and sounds amazing. Both my hands are in the air!

Love this DIY Circle Rope Bag Idea from The Style Safari. It looks great on the wall and has me thinking now; which room I could make one for.

Debbie is one of my favourite fashion bloggers, come to think of it, Debbie is my favourite fashion blogger. I always love reading her posts, seeing what outfits she wear and she gives me the confidence to go out and try out new things. Love Debbies new hair colour and she rocks this look: Graphic Tee Gray Boyfriend Jeans.

These Minion Cake Pops are so much fun. My Daughter loves Minion'sand would love these. I would too!!
