Hi Everyone Bernie here.

Good Morning and it’s Monday. I must be one of the few people I know who actually like Mondays,  A new week with things to do and challenges to meet.

My friend Sally Page contacted me a few weeks ago about a project that is dear to her heart. Sally worked at Mill Ford special school as school secretary and then left and now works at the Mare and Foal sanctuary near Totnes in Devon. They are having an open day on the 3rd Aug at Coombe Park Littlehempston so if you are in the area go along and support a very worthwhile cause.  Sally approached me to make some scrapbook pages using the photos of horse’s from the First World War I said I would love to….. Love Scrap-booking just do not get a chance to do it very much any more. That said Hobby Arts Commemorative, Remembrance and Poppy Set’s  are perfect for this era. So if you pop along to The Mare and Foal Sanctuary  Take a look at the scrapbook layouts that show the World War One Photos  as they were made by yours truly .  Some of the photos are not to clear but it gives you an idea of the conditions that the men and animals faced at that time ….I cannot lie some …well a lot brought a lump to my throat.

About Bernie Simmons

Hi Everyone. I am Bernie Simmons Proud member of the Hobby Art Design Team, I have been crafting for many years but started scrapbooking when I had my boys, James is now nearly 23 and Rory 19. It was while working out at Rory's school on day I was tacked to clean out an art cupboard...out fell stamps inks and brushes.....I was hooked. Love to craft and alter anything and I'm never happier then when I am either out with my two boy's walking our five Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs or covered in ink! I hope you like my makes and what I do.
