Top 5 to do

I enjoyed doing my DLO in Di W's circle journal for the group on the BF forum. Papers are K & Co Hannah and I used my dymo letratag for the wording. I added a few Craftwork cards candi here and there. The stamped flourishes are from a Papermania set and the ribbon has been in my box for ages - think it might also be PM.

I found it difficult to choose five things that I'd like to do because now that I'm older and neither of us are in the best of health there are things that we would have liked to have done, but will now probably never get the chance.

My biggest wish is that we will be able to celebrate a Silver Wedding Anniversary. When we married I knew that John's life expectancy wasn't great, so never expected that we would reach a 20th anniversary - but we have just celebrated that! So now we are daring to hope that we might well celebrate our silver wedding in five years' time.

The other four things are achievable, but if and when is still maybe a dream - but it's good to have dreams.

I'm linking this for these challenges:

Top tip Tuesday 35: use two or more stamps - 4 different flourish stamps used

Paper romance 52: distressing
Inspire me Fridays 8: anything goes
Creative card crew: anything goes
The paper shelter 15: anything goes
Truly scrumptious 57: anything goes
2 sisters 41: anything goes
