Morning! I told you I’d share another layout. This one is a little bright– look away if the glare becomes too much! This is another challenge-led page from CSI:Colour, stories, inspiration I’m sorry, the spelling gene in me simply can’t spell colour any other way. I was really amazed to get picked in their 5 most wanted category for the last scrapbook page I showed you earlier this week. Thanks guys! They’ve embraced this CAS scrapper which is so lovely as most of the girls there are an amazing artistic bunch who do scrapbooking in a style I never could. Go and discover lots of inspiration over there- you’ll be glad you did!
There’s always specific things you need to choose to include- mine were starting with ‘the key to…’ in your journalling. I also included circles and repeated elements. The colour scheme is always specified and this was a tricky one even though I’m a brights-loving girl.

I’m busy preparing a packed post for tomorrow- 3 projects for a change. 2 done and 1 to go. I’ve had to say goodbye to an old friend- well if you can call domestic item ‘friends’. My ironing board has finally failed- definitely structural failure. It’s been a longstanding member of the family and has flattened more shirts than I care to think about. It’s probably not been used as much as in other homes due to my desire to avoid ironing absolutely everything. I think the last straw for it happened last week as main pillar of the giant den the kids created.
Poor thing. It does look resplendent in a beautiful rose cover but its no good looking pretty if you’re no use to anyone- a piece of advice I intend to pass on to my hormonal daughters.
Ah well. I think I may need to clear my craft table as its going to have to double its work duties. Either that, or I forego the ironing! What a choice….!

See you tomorrow with a post all about Core’dinations. x
