TLT - Pinky's Challenge - Something With Wings you're not going daft, Pinky has left the Ladybugs but she had already chosen the challenge so in her honor we're going with it!

I haven't had a chance to look at any of your entries since I've been back but I KNOW they were megamazing cuz they always are lol. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to all the winners. Swing by the Challenge blog to see if you are one of them.

As I said although Pinky is a retired Ladybug she had already chosen today's challenge of Something With Wings and this is what I did...

It might not be obvious but the ladybugs are my things with wings :-D You can't tell from the pictures but there is LOTS of Glamour Dust on the flowers and Glossy Accents on the water with a touch of GD for sparkle. I needed to be quick so only coloured the ladybugs.

So I made it back from my holiday in Turkey in one piece despite finding a black feather sticking up from the crack in my back steps! Not sure if any of you are superstitious but I always thought finding a black feather on your doorstep meant death. I had a bit of a panic as we were flying out later that day but I remembered I had googled 'finding a black feather on your doorstep' a while back and 4 out of 5 answers were a bit doom and gloom and one really positive so I went with that one! 

We had a relaxing time and although the weather was mixed with rain, sunshine and cloud we managed to come back with tans. I didn't want to get too dark (I was mistaken for an Aborigine once when I was in Australia!) so I sat in the shade quite a bit and slapped my SPF 15 and 30 on regularly. Here are a few pictures...

I was trying to take pictures of the lightening but I wasn't quick enough on the trigger

Yours truly

This is the main pool

This was the carpet in the corridors and bedrooms and I loved the colours so watch out for a card with something similar ;-D

This was in the taxi taking us to the airport and of course I just had to take a picture lol. A few of you might remember the wrapping paper I used for my birfday candy was identical to the fabric on this doll. She was being used for tips.

Tomorrow we leave for Ireland for the wedding...OMG I can't believe it's almost here!!! Please cross your fingers that we don't forget anything and we have a dry day. I can't wait to see Nicole walk down the aisle and I'll have my kleenex at the ready! I'm looking forward to seeing all our friends and family under one roof and catching up with all the friends I've neglected over the last few months lol.

Next time you hear from me I'm going to be a MIL!!!!!

Catch ya later x

Looks like you took your inspiration for this B/W card from the black feather you found LOL. Love how it turned out. Happy to hear to had a fab trip to Turkey. Have a safe trip tomorrow and a wonderful wedding! Please give my best to the B&G. I'll be flying to the Netherlands tomorrow and then on to Glasgow on Wednesday for a 5-day trip to Ardbrecknish with my old folk friends from NL. Looking forward to the company of frieds and making music, dreading the weather, though!
