Emily is a witch. Yes, we are getting into the halloween spirit excpet all our decs are in the loft 'somewhere' and I doubt we'll get them out this year. It makes me sad because Halloween is my favourite time of year. I just love dressing the kids up!
I really want to go http://www.willowtreecrafts.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogsection&id=88888891&Itemid=35 HERE... I REALLY do. Karen Russell ROCKS. Her scrapping style isn't mine but her ideas, journalling and photography just amazes me. She is my all time scrapping idol. How cool would it be to go to a retreat with her teaching??????????????? I SOOOOO want to go. And of course a whole weekend FULL of scrapping would be just the best thing ever. I cannot imagine it at all. How super would it be??? Can you not see how much I want to go?!

PICCIES to follow... (except I was pretty dosey and forgot to take them of EVERYONE and only remembered right at the end when half of you had gone home... boo!)
Sorry Dee but you do make me laugh!
Didn't manage to get ANY scrapping done at all. But have sent Kev back to work this morning with a package to post off and am sat in waiting for a parcel to be collected here (we ave been sick bay to my sisters pootie)... What is the betting they turn up at 5:30pm. I hate it when collections are 'vague'. 9am - 5:30pm collections are such a poo.
And check out the tee shirt on this cutie here http://karenrussell.typepad.com/my_lifejust_not_on_the_ro/2007/10/after-7-12-hour.html

OOOOH, this has to be my favourite. I started it at crop on Wednesday but you know when it doesn't seem to be working AT all? It was one of those nights. So I bagged it up and left it. I'm so happy I did now. SO happy. On the piccie, shes grimacing alittle and so it kinda looks weird but I altered the pic with the aid of my photoshop book and it really made the bubbles have that petrol-ey shine and colour. I thought the corner rounded edges just softened the piccie and added to the whole 'round' bubbly thingie going on. As with my own scalloped paper ~ makes me think of Jane Dean when I say that. But I was trying to 'doodle' outside of my doodling comfort zone. As too with the heart and the glittered wings... YUM! And at first I just didn't like these thickers - the chipboard ones in the scroll-y font. But now... I LOVE them. You know when something just clicks and you realise you've had this stuff for months now and passed it by...? Well, these were that item. Except now, i'm using them heaps and they are nearly all gone ~ unless anything is spelt xxzgkkpo...!

I have the Wickford crop tonight and i'm looking forward to it. I have some deadlines for submissions this week too ~ three LO's which seem to be proving harder than I thought for some reason. And my style is evolving again. I'm not sure why it happens. But it is. Somehow i'm getting braver with patterns I would NEVER of placed together before. Oh well. Progression is good, right??!
Managed to get my copy of SI yesterday and SBM. Wow, both have surppassed themselves. I must say that it's the first SI I have REALLY enjoyed in a long time. Some of the articles though I wish could've been longer. Seems I just got into them and they ended but the LO's were fab. Fave - had to be by Cara Medus ~ it was just my sort of bam pop-ey type style I love. (and funny ~ the "be careful Daniel, it's fall-y down there" had me in stiches) Well done girls. And SBM is getting SO much better. It has some truly wonderful designers on there. I do love Anna Bowkiss and Anne Hafferman, they aren't my style completely but their art work is FABBY.
No piccies today. I'm too busy. Just jotting this down so you don't think i've vanished entirely from blogger-dom.
And Michelle ~ laydee! Thank you for tagging me... I will do it later on tonight, that one is cool I saw it on Shelley's blog too...
Bye for now!

Now, I will NEVER give up paper/card scrapping. Not ever. Never. But you know i'm intrigued and it's appealing to me so much. I downloaded a free make and take from twopeas (the cute little journo one) and I am in *heart* with it. I SO am going to make my own little digi journal. And the task has begun today making and creating and searching.
SO, i've downloaded some stuff. But I have no idea how to open it and use it... And the person who does, Kev... has a meeting tonight and i'm going to have to wait. I hate waiting. I just hate it.

I just love the bam pop papers and SO wish that I could go and buy another pack rather than have to order them and then have to wait. And I am tired of waiting for parcels... today I got my design team package from Fidgeons Crafts but nothing else ~ boo! I am sick of waiting. And I know our postie and the van have been around so that is not the problem... GRR! Post/Parcels... I hate waiting. And I have been waiting for over two weeks now!!

And then, I think i'm waiting on some REALLY super-dooper news. I am just waiting for a phone call and I am so pumped about it all. I have waited for this for a L-O-N-G time and tomorrow should be the day when my phone rings and .... oooooh I can't wait...
Ummmm all gold! (apart from my clumbsy thumb taking off a tiny spot on one of the scallops!) and the red glittery heart speech bubble!
Doodled with a silver pen...
These little journalling spots are coming in our crop kit. These were the miss cut ones (!) I am excused for that, I was up til 2am cutting them all out! On one side they have the 'love heart' stamp on them and the reverse is blank.
