Crofton, Kennet and Avon Canal

 A really early start, with a stop at Pewsey for water and then it was up over the summit, through the tunnel and down to Crofton.  The water levels were a bit more even this time, no overflowing locks but it was a pain having to trudge around the locks closing the bottom gates and lowering the paddles before we could fill the locks.  Some of them didn't even need to be left with the paddles up either!

Lunch in the K&A Trust tea stop in the pumping station - so here are a couple of cards.

This one the photo was matted onto silver, light green, darker green and even darker green card.

A green panel which had been decorated with a punch and had a green ribbon wrapped around it and tied in a knot was stuck down horizontally onto a blue card blank and the picture was placed on top.

This one shows one of the boilers in the pump house.  I matted that photo onto gold, red and black card.  I Cuttlebugged a piece of red card and matted it onto black card and wrapped some twine around the bottom.  They were both stuck onto a white card blank.
