Remove the lid and cut a square out from the centre. Depending on the size of the box, I left a good 1 inch around the edge. Paint the lid inside and out with emulsion or acrylic piant matching your paper.

... and not one Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles insight!!! What a terrible host am I, LOL!
How can I describe the night? It was a hilarious, easy-going, delicious, wine fuled and utterly entertaining night. The time flew by, especially for those not driving, hee hee! The food was just perfect! None of us will forget Viv's delectable salad with sundried tomatoes, pinenuts and spinach leaves (drool) so glad I saw her make this and is forever stored away in my memory. My smoked salmon pasta with cream, lemon and tarragon (thanks Louise) went down as easily as the copious amounts of wine. And the dessert, also supplied by Viv, topped off what was trully a scrummy meal.
After dinner we decided to play a few games of cards, this is when I remembered to bring out the camera. Seven's was so funny, with some bold people holding back... you know who you are! hee hee! But when we decided to play old maid, well then thats when it got really serious, as seen by the photographs below:
Can you guess who the old maid was??? LOL! You will have to forgive the quality of the images... they looked perfectly fine through the wine goggles I was wearing :-)
What really made the night so wonderful was the company!!! Thank you boys and girls :-) I am so grateful to have you lot in my life (awwwwwww). Here's to many more night candlelight suppers :-)

Yesterday Ber and I had a wonderful day. We started with our photography class with Peter of Living Images (thanks Peter). We learned everything about our camera settings, especially to do with indoor portrait photography. We learned loads of really useful tips which I can't wait to put into practice :-) and I now know the Lens I sooooo need, better start saving! I would really recommend this type of one to one (or two to one) class for anyone interested in learning about their camera.
After the class we met Louise in Ennis for lunch, we had scrummy food in The Town Hall, check it out if you are ever in the area. Afterwards we checked out the craft shop and then a little more retail therapy. Ennis has some amazing shops for clothes, handbags and jewellery :-)
One evening during the week, Ber and I headed to the weir in Annacotty to checkout slow shutter speed, trying to capture the silky feel of the water. Landscaape really isn't my thing but as an exercise I found it really useful, below is my fav from the evening.
This weeks theme for Scrap West is pets, check out the blog for some amazing works of art. We had 3 guest this week too, thank you ladies for submitting your LO's.
Right let the holiday begin :-)

Tuesday evening was scrummy food served up by Ber's hubbie (my friends all have wonderful cooks for husbands) afterwards it was into the garden to find some photographic opportunities. I love the way the evening light is caught behind the leaves below, and look at the burnt edges, love texture like this. Talking about texture, what is it about weathered wood??? Its so grungy looking and the colour is devine .... thinking about changing the colours of my walls now!
Tonight I'm chillin, up early for a few appointments tomorrow, then off to the Boys (John & Ray) for dinner, more scrummy food. Imagine I haven't cooked all week, lovin it!
Have a fantastic weekend all :-)
