Perfect Weather for Geocaching

Just a quick post today. We have had some wonderful days out lately, geocaching. The gorgeous Autumn weather has been settled and mild. The trees are looking so pretty too, and Poppy Dog has been in her element!

I felt compelled to put a page together. Using mainly Woodnote from Sahin Designs. I put this page on Instagram, but realised that the writing is probably too small to read. So have put it here 🙂



Turning Leaves and The Plump Duck Café!


I love the Autumn kit ‘Turning Leaves’ from One Little Bird at The Lily pad. This is Poppy Dog messing about in the leaves in our back garden. I also really like that quote. I always try to  look for the good and the beautiful. Sometimes I think we are inclined to dwell on the negative. So go out there and focus on the positive!

So we were out geocaching at Petersfield Lake in Hampshire, UK. We had lunch in a café called the Plump Duck! It really was a welcome haven on a very chilly day. The hot chocolate was so warming and the toasted sandwiches delicious 🙂

So I made a couple of pages. The first one is using ‘Table for Two’ from Sahin Designs and focuses on the hot chocolate lol.

The second uses ‘Cosy Day’ also from Sahin Designs and is all about the little rubber ducks the café used for food order numbers. So cute!





And this is  Paul (hubby) looking for the cache in the beautiful woodland surrounding the lake.



Snail Surprise!


This must be one of the most ingenious geocaches we have ever found! It was hidden in a fake snail. Not sure if it was a real shell or not, but it was so realistic. We overlooked it a couple of times and then Paul looked closer and realised what it might be!

The page is put together using Agenda from One Little Bird and elements from kits by Lynne Grieveson Designs. I made it for the template challenge over at The Lily pad and is by Paislee Press.

I’ve uploaded a few photos from our geocaching yesterday. The close ups of the snail are not that clear, but you get the idea. The other pic is of Sophie and Paul (and Poppy Dog)  searching, just before the snail discovery. It was stuck on the side of the trough and was also magnetic. It was also the most beautiful, sunny Autumn Day in West Sussex   🙂
