Afternoon delight...

I'm on a bit of a scrapping binge at the moment. It's always either feast or famine here with me. And I experienced the rarest of the rare today - daytime scrapping! The baba - aka The Enemy of Scrapbooking - decided she had actually worn herself out, and was going to sleep for four hours. Sure, I should have done the laundry (actually I tried, but the machine broke down) and perhaps I could have done some much needed gardening but, but, I wanted really to stick patterned paper to other patterned paper...

... and anyway, it's Tuesday and I hadn't finished my Shimelle's sketch of the week. This would be a very skinny blog if it wasn't for Shimelle...

Anyways - here's her sketch -

And here is my layout...

I had a complete disaster with some over eager application of glimmer mist, so when I was nearly finished I had to perform a partial scrapectomy and remove the whole middle section and adhere it to a new backing! Thankfully, I think I prefer what I ended up with... Mental note - do some practice with glimmer mists.

Anyway, back to the binge, am going to start my third layout of the day now. Its handy actually, I'm using up a lot of older pictures which I printed out with excitement, but am a little bored of now. I have banned myself from getting any new pics printed out until these ones are all done. I'll be uploading lots soon.

Till then!


  1. Thanks Patricia :) Appreciate your visit!

  2. Love your take on the sketch - I had the exact same thing happen with my paint splatter on my page! You are not alone! Love your butterfly and the title

  3. Thanks Helen :) It's good to know it's not just me! And it's so annoying, once you make a mistake, there's no going back...

  4. This is so lovely and I really had to smile at your "Enemy of Scrapbooking" and "scrapectomy" phrases - might have to steal those. Love the photo too. Well done on being featured :-)

  5. Thanks for the visit Lisa-Jane :) Well done on getting picked too! It's tough being brilliant, but hey, what can you do? :)
