This is what happens when you try and do too many things at one time... What a mess?! That little gap to the right of the pink mat is only there because I just literally picked up the camera from that spot.
Last Wednesday I mentioned that I was working on an assignment for my writing course. I'm still doing that because something exciting came up on Thursday morning to throw my plans out a bit. You may have seen this post where I had the amazing opportunity to be a guest artist on Shimelle's blog for her National Scrapbooking Day celebrations. We were talking about techniques for scrapping at pace and I have certainly been harnessing those techniques to get some of the challenges completed!
My course books and computer are piled in among half finished layouts and paper crafting products and this is not a good mix because things are getting lost and creased. I'm still working on making the single from last week into a double but I DID find the off cuts from the original and there is plenty enough to make another page - huzzah! I've got several more challenge layouts in the pipeline but there are classes to go to, family to feed, washing to do, this penultimate assignment to get completed and another blog hop with Jennifer to prepare for in amongst it all too.
One of the layouts I have completed this week actually fits 2 challenges. This one at Shimelle's blog is to highlight your favourite papers and this one at S J Crafts which was to use just one manufacturer. I don't think it will surprise anyone that I chose Echo Park!
I adore these papers from About A Boy and they were on my desk when I grabbed the photo and just went with it. I flicked through my pile of Pinterest print outs and literally chose the first one that I came to that had the right number and orientation of photos, otherwise I could spend all day deliberating over this one or that one... You can find the original from Debbie Hodges via my pin.
Those big rocks in the Northern Territory in Australia are so darn crazy right? Just like that crazy rainbow chevron paper that I want to use on every single layout right now.
Bye for now
