We are continuing with our staycation with another few trips out. Yesterday saw us crossing the pennines to Manchester’s Old Trafford Centre and the LegoLand Discovery Centre. Alex was fascinated by the model of Buzz lightyear,
whereas Tim and I were really interested in the other models of places we know and loved the 4D cinema show (Alex found the 3D effects a bit too scary!).
And we all enjoyed building and testing lego racing cards down the different tracks.
Today we went to Twycross Zoo where we were lucky enough to see all the different animals that each of us wanted to, including the Amur Leopards,
Gibbons and monkeys
orangutans that seem to like hiding under blankets,
And the sleepy, sunbathing snow leopard! It is sad to think that our staycation is nearly over, but we will hopefully manage at least one more trip out before I have to go back to work.
I have had very little time for crafting and have only managed to make postcards to send to our family using a compilation of photos from our holiday put together using photoshop elements. I printed them out onto card and the coated the card with sticky back plastic to protect the ink and to add strength to the postcards.
And a small tag for Tim's anniversary present. This uses silver and blue which was the colour scheme of our wedding, contains hearts and a dragon (because we both love fantasy books). This little tag therefore fits with the Kaboodle Doodles 'mystical creatures', Pollycraft 'love and marriage', Simon says stamp and show 'a tag', creative card crew 'things with wings', The pixie cottage 'shape it up' and TioT 'wierd and wonderful' (not sure if a combination of dragons and anniversary is wierd enough!) challenges.
Have a great weekend everyone,
