As a reward for that particular torture, we were taken to see Spamalot at the Palace Threatre in Shaftesbury Avenue…..it was the most excellent thing, and I laughed so hard through it all.
I would definitely recommend it if you get the chance – in fact, I’m going to take Lydia and Mum to see it later in the year.
I’ve been really poorly recently, so if you’ve been wondering where I am, or why I haven’t done something, that’s the reason.
I feel a wee bit better today, so hopefully I am turning the corner.
obviously, there is no way on god’s earth that I could do a layout in 30 minutes, but after factoring in paint drying and the chipboard UTEE letters, this took me about 120 minutes in total.
So, for a girl who usually takes over a week to do a quick layout this was super-speedy.
I’m so glad that I joined the Design Collective, it’s given my mojo a huge kick up the knickers!
I cut round the green circle, and made a pouch on the reverse side for the tag (with handwritten journalling – and that’s why it’s hidden) to sit in. I really love that cheepo ice cream stamp I picked up a while ago, and IRL the image zings out because I painted it with Twinkling H2o’s and then put glossy accents over the top.
All in all, I’m really pleased with this layout of my baby girl’s little hands in the fountain (la fontana) in San Genesio last year on holiday…fingers crossed there will be many more layouts to follow, as I have soooo many photos to get through.
Really quick card (under 10 minutes). Ready made card blank stamped with Hero Arts Wavy Graphic Border stamps in Vilolet Versacolour and Wisteria Fluid Chalk ink.Stamped onto left over glossy cardstock which had been DTP’d with black Stazon and then heat embossed several layers of clear EP to create the tiny tile (Blue Cardigan Mother’s Day Sheet), cut out and added to card blank.
Tied green organza ribbon round spine.
because I’ve been very poorly, I’ve not had a chance to mention the wonderful venture that Clare Brown, Jane Dean and Kirsty Wiseman (and loads of other really talented girlies) have started…it’s called the Design Collective.
I’ve already subscribed, and am really excited about the whole thing…here’s wishing them every luck with this venture….I am sure it’s going to be a flyer.
