We stayed at the Royal Hotel in Ventnor, nestled on the south coast of the island.
There was a further "Rivera Terrace" across the road where we enjoyed relaxing in the sun and taking afternoon tea.
It was a perfect base for us, Daisy could sleep in her cot and the baby monitor reached our dinner table where we sat in the evenings. We enjoyed superb on site food and a glass or two of liquid refreshment.
We had a couple of days out too, more of those in another post.
I had a few moments of inky time on bank holiday Monday so I dashed out between the torrential rain as I wanted to make a mini Moment. I wanted to capture the essence of our wonderful hotel and the sunshine which warmed and relaxed us all.
I decided to make a tag using an embossing folder with a vintage fee,l just like the hotel. I used colours representing the lovely sandstone which the hotel was built out of.
The 2 photos below show my background before I added all my elements I used some crackle paint and glitter to add to the vintage feel of our splendid hotel.
Here is my finished Mini Moment with my elements added.
The heart framing the flowers are for our family love and there is a little paper daisy holding a TH Ideology tag.
The pink flowers are to remember the beautiful flowers in the hotel gardens.
I attached my words to a tag inked with the same inks I used for my background and tied it with some rich velvet cord to represent the furnishings in the hotel which were very luxurious.
I certainly cherish every memory of our time there.

I am sorry if I have been a bit MIA with my commenting over the last few weeks, I do read all your posts even if I don't have time to comment. Life is still super busy this end. Thanks for all your kind visits and comments, they are so lovely to read.
Little Daisy Jane is now mobile....such a delight to see her crawling. She is such a little busy bee with all her chit chat too. I will be back with some more photos from our break but just to put a smile on your faces here she is with her bucket and spade on the beach...
Bye for now,
