Up, Up, Up-Weekly Challenge

Climbing up to the top of Hillsborough was a lovely hour with Ali.
We weren’t going to go so high but Ali suggested we went up to the top and this was so surprising and so spontaneous of him that I readily agreed.
He really likes to stay home.
This was about a third of the way up. You can just see the harbour behind him. We used to live at this end of town when I was a teenager, I remember playing Foxes & Hounds all over this hill. I also remember a wet afternoon at primary school when we all dressed up in costume to go up there to look at the remains of the bronze age fort, which was the first evidence of settlement in Ilfracombe. I do not have fond memories of that day Open-mouthed smile

To The Top. (Yes, the song is Catch My Fall, to reflect the terror I felt the whole time he was up there Laughing out loud)

I also would like to draw your attention to Ali's pokey stick in the video. I posted about his love of pokey sticks here
I have just bought the divine Up & Away papers from Basic Grey as a 12x12 pack and I challenged myself to only use the pack to make the layout, I have never done this before, I much prefer to gather kit from all over my stash. I didn’t enjoy the process nearly as much so I probably won’t do it again, it also isn’t my favourite layoutbut I do love the papers.
Up, Up, Up. (450x413)
Up, Up, Up To The Top.
The challenge from the Inky Minxes was great, I loved the sketch this week.


  1. The papers are lovely and I think what you have done with them is fab. What's not to like? You can always add some bits from your stash later.

    Love the video too and a great story:)

  2. Love this page - and I love those papers!!! Hugs Sarah x x x


Aren't you lovely, you have made me smile =)
