Cor blimey that was a struggle!!

Hey folks, how ya all doing making the most of the mini bout of sunshine I hope. Unfortunately, the good weather has finally broken down here on the south coast I woke up to rain this morning just in time for May Bank holiday and half term!!!!

Firstly I want to apologise for not being around much recently and I have been such a bad blogger leaving comments as well. As the title suggests the project I have just completed I seem to having been working on for an age I struggled with this one I'm afraid mr mojo packed his bags and headed off for a jolly leaving me trying to finish it. Add to that that my little girl woke up one morning extremely spotty with a bout of 'chicken spots' as she calls it I've found it hard to get going on anything. Anyway I was asked to make something for a 25th wedding anniversary which is Silver so obviously I was asked to use lots of silver. I don't seem to have in my possession many stamps suitable so I went with the Greetings Farm couple again. I was asked to make a four drawer box again and just in case anybody hasn't picked up the link from earlier posts I got the tutorial for this over on Kirsten's blog HERE.

Well I'll cut it short and leave you with some pics and a recipe.

Well I've gotta dash as its time to get the gruesome twosome from school. I am going to make a big effort to be a better blogger, so I'll catch up with you later folks.
Take care and enjoy your day.
