A crafty lunch!

Afternoon all the sun has come out and we have managed some gardening! We had a fairly relaxed Easter weekend, met friends for a Turkish meal on Saturday but the icing on the cake was Monday when I went up to London and met some blogging friends from around the country and OZ!!
Kylie who runs Addicted to Stamps and Addicted to CAS came over from Oz and stayed with Sandie, one of her design team and arranged for us all to meet up for lunch. We spent a few hours chatting and lunching in St Martin's crypt as if we had been friends forever:) We had a few photos, of course, and they are at the bottom of this post!

Back to this week's Less is More challenge:

We have another theme for you this week. 
Makes me smile!
It's simply that... something that makes you smile.
 It could be something cute, pretty, humorous, or merely a technique which satisfies you and makes you pleased with your finished article.
SO... lots of scope, but we'd like you to tell us the reason for your choice!

I decided to go with a NBUS stamp from Acid Drops and What Nots which definitely makes me smile, you can imagine someone not quite getting the dress code, come and see:

                                                                                 Kylie and Marina
 Kylie and Sylvia                                                                                                               Kylie and Sandie

Kylie and Sue

Monika was also there but I can't find her photo!!

Hope I haven't bored you with all these photos!
