More festivities in England tonight

So, the festival season is in full swing! The carnivals are happening and tonight is Guy Fawkes night (or bonfire night) in England. Basically, we celebrate someone called Guy Fawkes who plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament in the early 17th century. He was caught and executed and we now "celebrate" this fact! Very bizarre, I know, but it's what we do and we have great fun! Tonight, hubby and I fired up the chimnea in the garden and had hotdogs, baked potatoes and toasted marshmallows and watched the fireworks going off all around us. Pompey and Lily also had a marshmallow or two - they're not scared of fireworks! I guess that's the bonus of being originally bred as gun dogs!!

So, tonight I have part 3 of "festivity" - I do hope you like it. Below you will see part 3 of Linda's beautiful offering - click it to take you off to her blog to download - remember to leave some love as she has put so much love and effort into her part, if you only knew...! (Linda my not have posted yet - she is 8 hours behind me - give her a bit of time!). Then click my part to take you off to download at 4shared. See you tomorrow with a funky acrylic alpha! TTFN.

Love the kit! Thank you. Your carnival festivities sound pretty fun. You are lucky that the pups don't mind fireworks. Morgan requires medication on our July 4...

Have a great evening

Thank you Vicki!!! Yanno, I'm going to have a hard time figuring out which pieces to use... there's sooo much! FABulous!!!!!

Sounds like you're having a blast in dear ol' England! Our "fun time" is the 4th of July (our Independence Day) but Chicago-ans will still find ANY reason to party, haha. Have a good one!

I am drooling oven these colours. This is such a 'Pick Me Up', kit, thank you so much. We didn't get back in time to celebrate tonight, we are going to do it at the weekend instead, I can't wait. I'm going to take my laptop so I can show my sister's my digital scrapbook of the family, I wish they would get into scrapping, but they are computer phobic!

Thanks & Hugs
Susie

Oh, Vicki, I love the gorgeous flowers, the stars, and the pretty papers. What a glorious kit this turned out to be.

I was ROFLOL when I read you fed marshmallows to Pompey and Lily. How funny! I just bought marshmallows at the store today in anticipation of cold weather and toasty fires in our fireplace. We don't dare not have marshmallows on hand when the grandkids show up. LOL

Thanks for this part of Festivity and big hugs!
