Been back from my trip for a week now ... how time flies.

First the graduation of my daughter, Annabelle, from Exeter University. 

So proud of her!

A couple of days enjoying English towns ... sweet Wells Village, Bath and Chagford. Then off to Portugal for a celebratory holiday. Loved the blue skies (EVERY SINGLE DAY !), the blue tiles (especially in Porto), fairytale Sintra, amazing Douro Valley .... and special time with the family.

Getting back into things .... what with a lot going on in the house on our return ... painting the entire inside of house, water pipes blocking and flooding the laundry (more than a couple of time), plumbers, ... so time for some ink and paper again!

I could not resist the CAS-ology water-colour challenge, paired with Addicted to Stamps challenge and Inspiration photo.
