Colouring in on a rainy day

Another journal page for

 and Elizabeth's theme of ,,,,
Back to school.

A fun digital page,  remembering one of the phrases I often said to my boys when they went off to infants school, all those years ago..... be sure you listen to the teacher and be good.


We are still in the caravan and have some internet today, so am able to add this post,
My crafting stash for this journey was the Lap top computer, colouring book,  pencils and pens.
Just enough to go in a small drawer, not one of the larger cupboards I usually take over.

 Location....Strid Wood.... site near Bolton Abbey....Yorkshire.

We had a neighbour over the weekend. 
who liked to feed the birds.
 This duck had us laughing. at its efforts
 to land on the bird table for the bread and grain.
Even Meg barking at it, didn't get it to move off.
The greedy thing could hardly fly as it ate everything that was in sight.

So as its been a wet day  out with the colouring book and pens and of course the cuppa.
I hope I will be able to link up with friends for 
T stands for Tuesday's over at

I took the colouring pages out of the book [The colouring studio]  to make them easier to handle .

This page in the book was by Dyan Reaveley

A few more words and a background added digitally.

Thank you for calling in to see me today you are all very welcome.
my scheduled post for the new challenge theme over at try it on Tuesdays will follow soon.

Glad to hear your having fun... around here its the greedy greedy crows!! When they visit they just scoop up huge mouthfuls.. Love your coloring! Happy happy Tday Hugs! deb

  5. What a fun day at the caravan. First, a great digital entry for AJJ made me warm all over with that sage advice, then the wonderful coloring you created with those pens that brightened the page made me smile. Of course, the warmth of the tea may have had a bit to do with it, too.

    Thanks for sharing your tea, your caravan, your art and your AJJ entry with us for T this Tuesday, dear.

  6. There's nothing like a bird feeder for providing free entertainment lol

  7. LOVE your AJJ page! I think those of us that raised boys probably said that more than anybody else...LOL!!

    The duck had me laughing, they are so bold and greedy.

    Your coloring page really turned out great, I have those pens too, and few small coloring books. Yes, I usually take some kind of art work with me when we travel. I really like how you digitally enhanced the coloring page......great idea.
