A few weeks ago we spent a lovely morning in Ross-On-Wye. Paul went to an autojumble - bit like a car book sale for car parts - and I had a mooch round the shops. It's a really lovely shopping centre full of lots of lovely independent shops and perfect for buying small gifts.
In the afternoon we took a trip down memory lane to Monmouth. We used to go every month when we lived in Wales. I haven't been back for about 15 years so it was interesting to see what had changed and what was still the same. Lovely town but mainly the same shops as any other town.
Here is a layout I made of the photos I took of the main street in Monmouth. I was pleased to see they still had a tiny market. The layout is from Shimelle's UKScrappers series called 'and now for something completely different' This is her August layout. UKScrappers is free to join and this class is free too. As far as I know you don't have to be in the UK to join.
UKScrappers are having a birthday celebration with lots of free classes and an on-line crop. I'm in the Scolars group and decided to purchase the mystery kit. The contents are gorgeous and I will do a blog post, after the deadline, with details of what I make. For now the contents are top secret.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
