Good morning Blog Friends, can you feel it, the seasons are changing, here in the UK it is definite that spring is in the air, I wake at 6.30 and draw back the curtain and it's light I don't need to flick a switch.
On the first day of this month I took a walk down the back lane to ASDA. I didn't need much so just a quick walk get what I needed and then catch the bus into town, but I was halted in my tracks for all around me was signs that Spring was certainly on its way.
Camera out and the day became a photo opportunity.
later over the weekend I made this match book minibook
(rather pleased with the design on the cover as it is one of my own created on Serif Page Plus and cut on Robo, I'm learning more and more what this machine can do)
Yesterday (Monday) I needed to clear all my stash that had accumulated in the lounge, I was struggling to navigate around it all and it was definitely time to get it all back in the craftroom and hopefully put away. I did manage to clear the room and most of it has found a home, whether I will remember where everything is, is another matter.
As a reward I did another layout in the evening, this one for the weekly challenge on UKScrappers. The criteria this week was scraplifting, taking a sketch from one page in the gallery, a design element from another and the colour combination from still another. This is how I went about it
and the resulting layout
My gratefulness today has to be the lighter mornings, the sight of a big yellow ball in the air, a cat who is at the moment playing with my feet and getting my stash sort of sorted.
