There's a gnome at the bottom of the garden.........

..... well actually it's a gorilla! My mum always used to have a few ornaments in her garden. The 'odd' woodland creature - owls, rabbits, hedgehogs. But I've noticed recently that the collection is expanding at an alarming rate and now includes the twee as well as the out right alarming.

I had my camera with me to test out a +3 filter (the in-built macro is still not doing what I want it to), and these are the results.

The expression on this ducks face sums it all up! There are, of course, no fairies at the bottom of the garden because they're stuck in the flowerpots. And my fav the gorilla, why? I guess why not! No actual gnomes as yet, but I'll keep you posted.

The Daring Card Makers this week are using frogs and/or fishes. Here's mine.
Paper from BG Marrakech and blue scalloped card from DCWV.

Made a matching tag for Tag You're It, this week's theme is circles and swirls.
Went to see the children in their dance school annual show yesterday which was lovely. Very, unbearably hot in the theatre though. It must have been like dancing in a sauna. Small-N-Grubby danced to Summer Holiday in a Hawaiian style shirt. The Dinky Diva's main dance was as an air hostess to Come Fly With Me. She also joined the troupe for one dance and one song as well as the finale so she was a happy bunny.

It's the final matinee performance this afternoon and then back to school tomorrow. After the performance today it's the annual awards. DD has never received one, it's usually the same people every year, but she is always hopeful.
