Well it is a long time since I posted but I have finally given in to the pressure from various sources that I need to keep the blog going.
A number of things caused my absence. A change in job that has made many demands on my time and leaked into my private time greatly. This impacted my mojo and we all know when that goes it can take some time to regain. I also decided to redecorate and have some work done at the house, why does changing one room spill over to every room in the house? This then takes almost 12 months to get back to where it should have been.
Throughout all of this I did spit and spat at my crafts and attended some classes and retreats to keep my hand in. I also continued to teach at Scrapstars and am delighted to have been asked to teach again in April this year.
So I now have a pile of finished layouts that need to be put into albums, as I go through them I will post them to keep everybody up to date.......if anybody is still out there!
I was invited to Ireland in September 2016 to teach a class at one of my friends crops. Well I couldnt resist Ive never been to Ireland. I chose the lovely Bloom and Grow kit from Simple Stories. This kit never seemdn to end and I ended up with 11 layouts from it. This was such a lovely paper range I loved working with it.
This was the layout I made, we made little seed packets that held tags for extra photos or journalling. I also included a little interactive element see the kite it moves up and down the page.
