My daughter knew of a Tea shop there where we could enjoy afternoon tea. This was the view as we passed Hillhead en route. We could see that the clouds were beginning to break up revealing the blue sky and sunshine.
We had put on our walking shoes and Daisy had on her sweet blue first walking shoes. She was still needing to hold onto one finger to walk on Sunday. As she was awake she wanted to have a little walk and we, very slowly, made our way along the beach path with everyone smiling as she walked with us. She really is such a cutie. We even bumped into 2 of our daughter and SIL's friends and Daisy pointed to her shoes and said "shoooo" proudly to them in the sweetest voice.
Here are some snaps of my precious girlie and her shoes or shoooo in Daisy language.
Now all this walking in such tiny shoes took some time and eventually we had to pop her back into the pushchair and get back as the sun began to set. The sunset that afternoon was glorious but it got so cold as the darkness arrived.
Today I had my planned inky day and I decided that I would make a Moment of our wonderful day on Sunday for Jane's Journal. I wanted to incorporate everything I saw into it so I sat down with some ideas and this is what happened.
I wanted to create an inky background with sunshine, the sea and Daisy...
I added some extra stamping and you may notice that I have bought a date stamp, I stamped the date into the background too.
This is what I made..
I added a piece of film ribbon as I thought my Moment was like a photo of every moment of our day rolled into my single artistic representation.
and it is attached at each end by a sunny yellow heart.
My Moment will be put into my Journal and when I look at it it will bring back all the memories of that sunny Sunday. Those shoes really were made for walking.
I would like to enter my Moment into the following challenges;

The weather is looking very wet and windy here for the next few days so I doubt there were be many visitors to the beach this weekend. I will end my post today with something else to make you smile.......................this was me trying to take the photos today of my Moment in my light box....hmmmm
