Happy Birthday WOYWW!

Only just been able to add some pictures tonight as I was traveling again - but this time in London on business!

No crafty action again as only just back from holiday and deluged in laundry!

How can 2 people generate so much washing in a single week - I'll be ironing for the rest of the decade!

I did manage to print a mass of pictures yesterday all ready for a serious scrapping session.

Here are just a few of the pictures lined up in the scrapping queue !!

We took the snaps above in the ancient city of Mdina, a magical atmospheric place - we could have wandered about the twisting streets all day !
The walls of virtually every building in Malta are this gorgeous sandstone colour - but here in this peaceful place we really enjoyed the character they brought even more than all the other places we visited.

Last Friday we set off up the hill from our own "sea front" and walked from Sliema along the rocky coastline to St Julian's - it was a three hour round trip with a coffee & croissant stop but stunning views  all the way !

Finally this was the iconic view across from our "seafront" - which was the coastline along the creek over to the city of Valletta - somehow we just couldn't stop taking photos of it !!

Had to add some pictures to this post when I got home, as I wanted to link up this morning to be part of the anniversary ATP fun.

Hope to have a post which actually has some crafty content in it at some stage soon!
So please bear with me! !
Have a fun 4th anniversary week!

  10. Happy Special WOYWW. Enjoy your time in London - I haven't been for years and would love to go soon. I know what you mean about washing. We only went away for 2 nights with the caravan last week and had so much washing/ironing! Ali x #93

  11. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Bad timing to be away for the anniversary Ali but at least you were able to pop in and say hi.
    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

  15. Busy lady but glad to hear from you even if no pictures. DD bought me an iPad for Mother's day so I can travel light and I can not figure how to up load a picture for anything so I probably will drag the laptop with me anyhow! Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary. Have a great week. Vickie #14

  19. Wow! Those are some really impressive photos, Ali. Love the last one in particular. It looked like gold shining on the water.

    Happy WOYWW4 from # 17.

  20. I say 'S&d the ironing! Anyone can wear wrinkled clothes but not everyone can create ScrapBook pages!'. Gorgeous photos! Sand #172 x

  21. Hello Ali, happy 4th anniversary to you :) Lovely post and I so enjoyed your photos of Malta. Many years ago, back in the 80s, we stayed for 10 days in Bugibba, hired a car and drove around the island. Mdina was just as you describe it and the view of Valletta harbour was simply stunning. I wonder if the Popeye village is still there on the coast - my daughter thought that was great fun :) Hope you've had a lovely WOYWW, Elizabeth x #155

  22. Happy WOYWW4 have a wonderful day and all your pictures look fantastic hugs Nikki #145

  26. Sounds like you are having a ball. Happy 4th WOYWW. So glad to get an ATC from you. Last time we did this for the 3rd birthday was my first time making an ATC, so I am pretty sure yours will be great! I am by no means an artist like some of the WOYWWers. If you let me have your Address I will post one back to you too if you want. My e mail is tertiaj at telkomsa dot net
    Sorry it took so long to get back to you, life is crazy at the moment.

  27. Greetings from the North Wales coastline! Happy WOYWW - taking me all week to go around even some of the folks!! What a wonderful set of memories from your holiday - enjoy putting them together as layouts.
