Altering something a little different and Mollie goes fishing.

As many of you know we are off to Devon next Friday for 16 Days of fishing. We normally take a massive holdall to hold all are bit and bobs for fishing, which weighs a bloomin ton. We decided to treat ourselves to a couple of fishing backpacks, which will hopefully make life alot easier to leave our hands free to carry our seats and rods/pole. Anyway, we bought matching backpacks as they were on special offer so I decided to personalise mine a little, (a) so I know which is mine and (b)to add a little feminine touch. So this is what I did....

I've stamped Fishing Dandelion from the D&D range and coloured with watercolour pencils and copics markers and blender. Chalked the background. Ran the image through the laminator and trimmed off leaving a good border of the plastic. Please don't look too close at the hand sewing, I'm not very good at hand sewing. As you can see Dandelion has gone pink which matches my brand new fishing reel I also bought and just had to have as it was

Whilst I was doing this, Steve and Mollie went fishing this morning. Mollie loves to watch us fish, I think she may like it also because she gets the odd bit of luncheon meat too from the bait box. Steve caught his first Tench from the lake, quite a good size too. Mollie really wanted to get a good look, so here are some pictures of Mollie meeting the Tench and one of Steve with his catch.

Been a lovely day here today and this afternoon I went to Withernsea with Mollie for a walk on the beach, so she's had a fun filled day. Sadly Mollie can't come with us on holiday, as dogs aren't allowed where we are going but we have found a few fisheries that do allow dogs in Lincolnshire, so plan to do a few weekends away through the summer where she'll be able to come with us.

Hope everyone is enjoying their bank holiday weekend so far, lets hope the weather continues to stay fine.

I'll be back in the morning with my DT work for the next Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, can't believe it will be challenge 8.

Also don't forget the Funky Fairys challenge this week, which is Circles & Buttons!!

Enjoy your evening xxx
