I've been trying to go through some of the old kits I have lying around my room and use them up - there is no point buying more stash while some of the stuff I've already got is left intact! So last night I took a small amount of stash downstairs, just a kit, my tools and my ink pads/stamps really and created this layout using the December Back Porch Memories kit. I quite liked the idea of restricting myself - it challenged me to use less on the page and therefore finish it much more quickly. Its not my usual sort of style - way too simple - but it does have some of my trademark stamping and buttons and I just adore this photo of Ernie so even though its probably not my most accomplished work, I do really like it. And those Prima flowers with the gold on are gorgeous - I have five left, so going to have to ration them out I think! Unfortunately, because its a bit bumpy, the scan has gone a bit fuzzy at the bottom, but you get the idea...

The lack of a shower is really starting to grate on me now - my hair feels disgusting, and since I ran out of dry shampoo I've been resorting to talc to try and improve matters! We are going to Ed's parents for showers later on, but in the meantime I really need to do the food shopping and I'm feeling too minging to leave the house. Grumble grumble grumble...


  1. Great layout, its good to step outside your comfort zone, isn't it? Once you get past the initial "oh crap" thoughts! LOL

    I can totally sympathise with the lack of shower facilities, happened to me last week. Get to the chemist and buy some dry shampoo :o)

  2. I would be pissed too if I couldn't wash my hair properly.
    Lovely LO!
