I have internet access today and thought that I would post WOYWW this week. I don't have a desk to show you because I am in Spain enjoying a holiday while my husband attends The European Severe Storms Conference in Palma de Mallorca. If you haven't had the chance to go to Mallorca, Spain I strongly encourage you to do so. I know that very few of my friends in the USA have even heard of Palma but it is a vacation spot for a lot of the European Community. The people here are so friendly and there is so much to do and see on this island in the Mediterranean Ocean!

I thought I would share a couple pictures of the sights I have seen since arriving here and maybe a picture of a toilet paper roll book I made the night before coming overseas.

First picture is of the Castello Bellver. Unfortunately it was night and none of the ones of unlighted outside turned out very well.

This castle is one of the first European round castles. This is a view of the interior of the castle. They had a 'mixer' at the castle for the conference participants and had a group of traditional dancers come and entertain! I was really impressed with the musical skills of the young man who played the drums and the flute like instrument at the same time!!
I went to visit the Catedral o la Seu yesterday and took a lot of pictures of it and the Palau de l'Almudaina which is the residence of the medieval monarchs of Mallorca. Now days they have a much nicer mansion outside the city!
The cathedral:
The palace:

Last pictures are the photo book I made using a toilet paper roll core. I covered the cardboard with Christmas papers and made sliding 'pages' of card stock that I also covered with the same family of Christmas paper. The tabs are made using the Tim Holtz die and the sentiment was a TH stamp!

  3. Yes, Vickie, Will is a pilot with RAF Valley which is the team who did the rescue - it was rather tongue in cheek what I wrote bit to be honest it could have quite easily have been Wills piloting the plane. Do know it wasn't but at least it grabbed people's attention.
    What a lovely trip you are having, never been myself but it is on my list of "to do's". Was THE destination when I was a teenager for holidays but I just never did it.
    Look forward to seeing your book when Blogger behaves. Thanks for sharing - Neet x

  4. Amazing Spain! What a great holiday you're having! You did wonders with the toilet paper roll too! Patsy from

  5. Have a great time for the rest of your holiday. If you have time, there were two excellent rips we did on our last visit to Mallorca. One was a coach trip round the western area of the island, which involved a boat trip as well. The other was a 4X4 ride around some of the countryside that you would not get to see otherwise. As a 4X4 experience, it was very tame (we are used to really rough ground with our Land Rover club) but for sightseeing it was excellent, and included a barbecue meal in a fantastic viewpoint.

  6. Carry on enjoying your trip some great places to photo.Absolutely adore the christmas album half way through one just need motivation to finish it now.Have fab wedensday and a creative week .Pop by as i have candy on offer until 26th

  7. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos and adventures. I really love that design with the toilet roll core. so colorful and unique. Enjoy your time away and have a safe return. Happy WOYWW

  8. What great shots of Mallorca! Glad to hear you're having some fun as well as your hubby being there on business. I never knew there was a European Extreme Storm convention, you live and learn! Hope the rest of your holiday is filled with fun,
    Hugs, LLJ xx

  9. I've never been to Mallorca - probably because everybody goes there, but I've heard that it is really beautiful and your photos just confirm that. So perhaps one day - who knows?? I'd love to stay on a finca actually... Your book looks gorgeous, I really like it.

  10. So glad you are having a wonderful time in Spain. I love the cover of your mini book.

  11. Those are wonderful pictures. I hope you are having a great time. Love that book too.

  12. Hope you're having a brilliant time. We went there as a family when I was about 18 or so. I like Spain, but living in America has meant that every time I go to Europe it's to visit family and not for a "real" holiday!

  13. I adore Spain but haven't been to Las Isla de Mallorca yet..can't quite drag myself off the mainland! Really hope you're enjoying the social side of the conference and the spanish welcome...even the light is a different colour, huh!

  20. Love Mallorca - and super photos Vickie! Typical me - I didn't read you post properly and thought you'd got carried away and had been snapping pics of the toilet roll holder in your hotel :( I love the real thing once I reached that photo! Enjoy, and please leave us some sunshine over there - off to Spain again in five weeks time. Di xx
