A good start to the year
I've also been scrapbooking! At long last I got the scrap stash out, the photos have been piling up, but I've just not found the right mood to scrapbook anything. So I made a real effort to get the juices going. I did a scraplift for UKPC, and then carried on and made two more pages, also got a few scrap challenges to catch up with. I did pick up a nice scrapbook pad of paper at HC, the paper is all glittered, really enjoying using it, it is a bit grungy as well. This photo was taken by a semi pro photographer, it was taken at the Albert Dock last year, me and two of my best friends, a nice memento. Didn't want to do too much, so just used a template to cut the frames, did some distress inking, recoloured the flowers, added a few buttons and that was it.
Today was a craft free day, had to get back to my courses! That was after I risked life and limb to get the supermarket shop. It was so windy here today, 67 mph at the last count... the car door smashed into me, luckily I saw it and took evasive action. Nice to be in the supermarket after the madness of Christmas, very quiet, no crowds, no screaming kids, no bewildered shoppers... all was normal. The windy conditions carried on into the afternoon so I stayed indoors, it was just too dangerous to go outside.
Need to get out tomorrow for an hour or so, though the forecast is diabolical. Just feel so much better when I've managed to get out and about for a while. Need to check some dates as well..
Hope you had a Good New Year's celebration, I wish you a good year.
