Text me

Hi all,
I think we have had our good weather this year!  After a few days of sun, it is now raining again. My supply teaching went well this week and now I am starting to get the house clean,etc after being out every night with the performances.  This weekend, hubby's middle brother is coming up with his family and we are going to the Jubilee celebrations in the village on Sunday.  There is a parade (we need to make costumes for the girls - aagh!), games, stalls and then food in the village hall.  There is a family ceilidh in the evening, with a  fish and chip supper.  I'm really looking forward to it, so I hope the weather will be kind.
Over at CRAFT this week, we are sponsored by My heart pieces, eyeCandie Creations and Saturated Canary.  Our theme is background text.  I love all the text papers, stamps around at the moment, so was pleased to have a go.  I have used a wonderful image by Saturated Canary and the papers are by My Mind's Eye.  I have had the little bells for years, and hadn't known what to do with them until now.  The flowers were made from  punched scallop circles.
I would like to enter this into the following:
Make it Monday - always anything goes
Cooking it up with Katie - celebrate with ribbon and a die cut
LEJ Designs - Ribbons galore (I know I only have 1 ribbon - if more is needed, please delete my entry)
Top Tip Tuesday- Dig out the old - bell and ribbon.
