A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Today has been a mixed day, I woke before 6.30 no trouble at all though it was still dark out. Why can't I wake as easily on a Thursday when I need to get up sharply at 6.30?
I had a photo printed, one of my wedding photos and I was eager to scrap it. I planned to do one of the Pre CC challenges on UKScrappers, a class set by Cal. quite a simple design but one that I could put my own stamp on.
I managed to use the peacock feathers on this page too, I'm so pleased about that as really don't like to be beaten with challenges.
Gifts Galore
I love the fact that I can now look back on this and see what we had as wedding gifts, and it amused me that there was shoe polish amongst them, so that had to be incorporated in the journalling.
and here for the record is the famous or should that be infamous peacock feathers

Yesterday evening I did this page, quite a simple one but quite please with the way it turned out. Again it was a challenge from the Pre CC another Technique one to use negative punch/dye cut
I cut the title on Robo and used the negative and the positive here

I forgot to take a photo for my As Seen yesterday so here is a stock photo but in line with the morning's activity

Today in town I thought it would be a good idea to take this photo as this area is part of the redesigning of Swindon Town. This used to be a smelly underpass which was useful to get from one side of the road to the other but had to be negotiated at a pace as it stank of urine.

I had a successful shopping expedition getting the card stock I needed and adding another dye cut nesting set to my collection and also strangely another pad of 6x6 papers popped into my basket, I wonder how that happened ;)

well as you can see they were irresistible

I also managed to meet up with Neil and had a nice cup of Caffe Caramelle in Costas

Today I am grateful for not feeling tired and for a good day despite the weather.

Love that picture and a fabulous layout to feature it!

Lots of great stuff to see today. That first layout is absolutely fabulous - really plays up the photo. And using those feathers could have been tricky, but you did that masterfully.

Super super colour scheme in the gift lo, and what a cool photo of the gifts with you in it too.

awesome on the use of peacockfeathers.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
