Its the little details...

Oh, my god, I think I jinxed the weather yesterday! After going on about how much the sun makes me happy, its proceeded to rain all afternoon - typical! Still, I haven't given up hope on it picking up again, maybe in time for the weekend...

I've been busy visiting kids on work experience placements today. I went with my friend Gurpreet who was also visiting kids, and when I came out of one placement I saw her get out the car and go hurrying across the road. She called me to go with her, and I found myself in an Asian beauty salon, where I ended up getting my eyebrows threaded for the first time - it took about 30 seconds, and was so precise! Very bizarre for a Thursday morning - a new experience for me, but I definitely think I will go again, it beats spending ages with my tweezers trying to get the line right and never quite managing.

I thought I would share this layout I created for Rebecca's Scrapbooking Stash - its not up over on the site yet but she's given me permission to post it here. Its made with the gorgeous Dream Street Enchanted line and is my response to one of Shimelle's first prompts, to scrap your neighbourhood. It includes my only photo of little Beano, a little white smudge through a rainy windowpane. It was while making this layout that my old sewing machine gave up the ghost, so all the wavy lines had to be unpicked from one side of the dlo and then handsewed - it took me ages!


  1. love this layout! hope to see you playing at CCG soon!

  2. That layout is so pretty. I love the colours and the stitching is fab!
    I hope the weather picks up for tomorrow as we are having a bbq, fingers crossed!
    Enjoy the weekend.
