Well I survived the week away.
I passed my course with a very creditable test mark at the end of the week. I met some nice people too.
I stayed rather too close to Brent Cross Shopping centre so my evenings were spent shopping, dining and visiting the hairdressers! I also got to go to Barnet Golf Club as well.
SI came out whilst I was away. The lovely editorial team did a focus on my blog (thanks x) and I managed to squeeze in a layout and a peek of one from next month too!
I got back home to discover little of my stash post from Amercia has arrived. (Yeah for Unity Stamps!). CD, SC and 2Peas still awaits!
I did however find a lovely thanks card on my doormat (Thanks to you for that - you were more than welcome x)
So once I had recovered from the week the weekend began. I took Dad out for his birthday, and bumped into Karen Moss en route! (She has some lovely, lovely stuff in SI this month and more to come from her I am told.
I had a golf lesson. It went well. I then had to shop for a creditable golf outfit as my next lesson will be on a course; albeit a 9 hole one. (OMG)
I managed to fit in some scrapping too.
I finished this mini book from a Donna Downey class that I took in 2007, it now all ready for our holiday.
I made a couple of cards with some left over CD products and a PTI stamp.
I finally made a couple of layous. The first on is on grey card. I love this shade. I think grey is such a good alternative to kraft as well.
Secondly I paid a visit to Jimmys Farm a few weeks ago and I was more than a little surprised to find a butterfly farm. I managed to bag some lovely butterfly photos and have been itching to place them on a layout ever since. I really liked this MM die cut paper. Beware, the sticker on the back is hard to remove and almost takes the paper along with it.
The blue and white D Ring shape is the handle to a hidden journal panel underneath the photos. I wanted to keep my writing hidden out of view as the photo and the papers seemed to be eyecatching enough.
