August Memories...

Some of my latest DT work has gone up over at Scrap Paper Scissors so I thought I'd better share it here with you too - if you want more detailed instructions about how I created the pages, then check out my article over there. They were all created using Making Memories Noteworthy products which I think are really lovely and quite diverse - both these pages turned out really different, despite the fact that they were created using the same range. Big Grins records the photos from our meal in August to celebrate my mum and brother's birthdays. Portugal Paradise showcases a picture of the pool on our holiday last month (it seems like so much longer ago!) and the fact that we all burnt to a crisp playing in it on the first day! Typical Brits abroad - mad dogs and Englishmen and all that! I got really into my doodling with these two pages, especially since I had just received a selection of Sakura pens from Singapore (via ebay) not long before creating them...

I managed to pop into Hobbycraft yesterday and picked up a bunch of Making Memories Tiny Alphas there. Finally, the biggest crafting store in the country is starting to acknowledge us scrapbookers and stock a range of Making Memories and American Crafts products. Not exactly an extensive range, but its better than the poor excuse for a scrapbook section they used to have. I also managed to pick up some uniball fineliners of varying thicknesses for journalling and doodling on a 3 for 2 offer - so if you need to stock up on pens, it might be worth a visit.

I still feel utterly exhausted at the moment - not sure if its because we are heading into Winter and all I want to do is hibernate. However, despite the fact I want to crawl into bed right now, I'm determined I'm going to scrap at least for half an hour this evening. I'm actually starting to feel really inspired again - you always know you haven't scrapped enough when you fall asleep thinking of layout designs!
