And here's a couple of closeups detailing the extent of the mess:I still can't believe that I've actually put these photos on my blog!!! The worst part is... it STILL looks like this a week later! Between marking tests, working, family stuff and end of term madness I haven't had a chance to do much in the way of tidying... although I have been creatively busy with a couple of projects :)
I'm definitely going to tidy up today though!!! I've got a teacher from work coming over tonight to begin her very first scrapbooking project and it's HUGE so I've got to make some room LOL
On a completely different note... last month I organised an ATC swap with SBO... the theme was Summer and as the 'host' of the group I got to see everyone's creations together before mailing them off:
I really love doing ATC's and I've gathered a bit of a collection of them now... all safely stored in little pockets but in need of a binder so that's on my 'to do' list as well. Here's the closeup views so you can see just how cool these little pieces of art are!
Here's mine: I used a wooden sun that I coloured gold, a little summer house (Spotlight) some feet I punched out and the 'sand' was made using Tim Holtz's distress embossing powder (such a cool product!)This is Rangi's: She used lovely bright papers, some ric rac ribbon, a flower and a flower brad... Love the colours of this one!Next is Kirstin's: I LOVE the colour of your background paper Kirstin!!! Over the top she's layered a variety of summer stickers with lovely blues :)Then we have Niella's: Gorgeous papers, some mesh, ribbon, staples and a colourful paper clip... I got loads of ideas from this one Nie!!And finally Jane's: Can you believe that this was her first ever swap??? Such a cool card using patterned paper, stickers and lovely bright colours!!! Jane's totally addicted to the ATC swaps now :)Thanks girls for taking part in this swap! Right I really must go... got some more ATC's to post and then I've seriously got to get tidying up!!! Hope you all have a fun filled weekend :)
