My little place on the web

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Spring is in the Air!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 3/22/2006 12:18:00 PM
Or is it, I should say. Yesterday was the first day of spring and it was snowing this morning!!!!We have been promised more spring like temperatures for the weekend, crazy isnt it?
Blogger wasn't playing last night, bad blogger! And I had so much to say. Can't remember any of it now, typical isn't it!
Here is my first page of my A-Z Book of Me (BOM), inspired by Kirsty's challenge and Kimmy's A-Z BOM. Really enjoyed working on this new size 81/2" x 11", even though it probaly took me twice as long! I did want to do some journaling, but my white sharpie pen is not working on black bazzill card stock, not much good is that? So hence no writing on my LO. I still like it though had a lot of fun making the flower (inspired by ScrapDolly) and handstitching the stem and leaf.
Received my Amazon delivery yesterday, along with a new book for me, "Pockets, Pullouts and Hiding Places".WOW this book is stunning, and I cannot wait to start reading it properly and having ago at some of the gorgeous techniques. Jenni Bowlin and Tin Holtz are just 2 of the contributors so it's got to be good!
I have buckets of work to do and deadlines. A masterclass to do for Papercraft Essentials, some amazing stuff for Creative Scrapbooking (received some of the goodies today), I have a crop on Sunday and need to prepare my class, Kirsty and Ellie arrive Friday and Sue hopefully will be arriving on Saturday. So a busy funpacked week!.
I am also awaiting a very exciting and important package form China. As well, The Best of British annoucements are being made at Olympia on Sunday, so cant wait to hear the results!
I am now going to plod on packing orders and starting my projects for the magazines. I have Peter still working form home during the day and working nights, so I have to look like I do actually work!! Mind I did 1 1/2 hours of housework this morning, yikes!

And Finally my thoughts and prayers are with a very dear friend and colleague today, lots of love girls
