Now don't all faint.....

...but I've done a layout!

When I saw the Gotta Craft February kit with gorgeous vintage shades and the new Prima papers that Sandra has just uploaded, I just had to combine the two for this layout. The photo was taken on my Mum and Dad’s 40th Wedding Anniversary. The Bazzill Wheat, the matching alphas, all of the buttons and the Glitz paper in the kit went so well with the Prima Madeline and Botanical ranges - they were very easy to mix and match. And being double sided meant I could totally indulge my love of layers, use them with border punches and cut elements out of them for framing and embellishments.

What Was I Thinking?.....

All this moving house business has obviously addled my brain because for weeks now the Craft Room has been neglected, left unpacked and not given the very high priority it deserves. Instead I have been foolishly cleaning the cupboard under the stairs, unpacking shampoo supplies and hanging pictures. What was I thinking?!

So this week I got my Ikea desk and chair (no Expedit book cases yet - I will have to save up a bit longer to get those) and got everything moved in.
It is a fabulous space with lots of natural light and my DD obviously agrees. She has moved in all of her paints, sparkly stick on gems and reams of coloured paper and is happily explaining the benefits of sharing our stash. Noooooo!
