I’m getting addicted to blogs and here are just a few of my many favourites: donnawild.blogspot.com/, rettg.blogspot.com, scrapblogmebaby.typepad.com/, desertbloom.typepad.com/
I have to stop at that but there are plenty more I frequent. Yes girls – beware the editor of Scrapbook Creations is lurking!
and I just happen to have the perfect picture to go with that quote, Jannah!
In light of my blog address being in the mag, I thought I'd better dust off the cobwebs around here and try to post some pictures :-)
Things are a little crazy here - I'm madly trying to finish off some layouts which should have been finished and posted days ago, Max has been a little off-colour and having restless nights, and I have a job interview tomorrow that I am not at all prepared for! eek
Here's my layout from last week's Blue Bazaar portal. The theme was Ali Edwards inspired, so I used the photo/journaling/file tab placement from one of her layouts in the July CK. The clear embossed butterflies are an idea I saw on another Ali project (not sure where - maybe on her blog?). The stamps are new from cherryArte and will be released soon.
Looking at this layout, though, I think it's more Anja than Ali inspired, really. If I'm looking for inspiration that's full of vintage-y goodness, Anja's gallery never disappoints. I love the way she uses old photos and everyday snapshots in her layouts, and her journaling has so much feeling.
The tree in that photo is actually a flowering pear which doesn't fruit, but at the moment we have little almonds and mulberries growing, and flowers on our plum tree. Here are some photos I took on the weekend.
Ok, enough spring cleaning - I'd better go and finish off those layouts, and prepare for that interview...
