Right on with the update. I told you in my last post that I won a spot as a guest designer on Neen's blog 'The Music in Me'... well here is the layout I created for Cyndi Lauper's song Time after Time. I've made my layout as a canvas so that I can have it on the wall and remind myself that I really do need to take time out regularly to unwind, relax and recharge my batteries!
The lastest ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap on SbO was fantastic! We used the theme Black & White and had a really creative mix of ideas. These swaps are getting really popular and I would really encourage anyone to give it a go!"
SENZ is coming up this Friday!!! So excited!! It will be my first time on a plane in almost 20 years! I've been looking forward to going for months and trying hard to contain my excitement! I've booked in to do 2 classes... the first one is a 2008 Desktop Maya Rd Calendar with Yolande. I'm still trying to pick my photos for this one as there are so many I want to use! Then on Saturday I'm doing an Altered Maya Rd Recipe Tin (with Yolande again). Really looking forward to doing this one because I've got about 5 Maya Rd tins sitting here waiting to be altered!!! To help with the excitement I've been making SENZ swap pins so if you see me at SENZ please come and say hello and swap a pin with me :)
Today is my brother in laws birthday and I gave him the canvas I made for him back in August. Actually it was quite hard to give it away because I've really enjoyed looking at it everyday! Now my BIL is a man of few words and he often keeps his opinions to himself but it's safe to say that he really LOVED the canvas! I was so pleased with his reaction... and really glad that I was there in person to see what he thought of it! Happy Birthday :)
And finally... I also gave the 'Good Times' book to Dave and he was really blown away with it! He kept going back to have another look at it and couldn't believe that I had gone from never making a layout about him to creating an entire album just for him. I think I'll have to do some more gift giving because it is a wonderful feeling to make something special for someone and have them really love it!
So it's back to the reality of work tomorrow and time to get myself organised... have a great week!
