Hitchlock cover - personalised

I`ve been playing around with my silhouette the last couple of days , and must be honest I`m enjoying it immensely

After reading a post over on the Silhouette Forum, see post below . We were talking about inverted images, for cushions.

Which gave me an idea. I recently bought a caravan and have looked at all different types of hitchlock covers, none really appealed so I bought a plain one with a view to "doing something" with it

Well here it is - the yorkshire rose and letters were cut out using the Silhouette SD and applied to the cover.

They came out quiet well I thought

Corfu - Kalami

I have been absent for a while and heres the reason why. DS scored the highest possible score in college which I`m very proud of him for and as a treat, we whisked him and his mate off to Corfu for an holiday. Wow what a place, we stayed at Kalami in the north and it was stunning.

I know they used it for the Roger Moore 007 James Bond movie, but it has to be one of the most beautiful places I`ve been. The setting was gorgeous. And the little bays had millionaires calling on their boats and at Agni (next bay) it was like a celebrity watch.
