I went mad with the white pen doodling and even a bit of stitching too. I just love the Kelly Panacci love words paper - I've been cutting out bits of it for all kinds of layouts - very versatile :)

If you haven't seen it already, you have to go! I have to admit, that when me and my sis were discussing which film to see I didn't really fancy this one. But it was on at the right time to fit in a trip to the Thai restaurant afterwards, and I'm so glad I gave it a chance. It wasn't at all what I expected - it was much better!
Today I have also managed to get my layouts done for the Papermaze blog for next month - lovely Dream Street papers - and hung out with friends at the same time, so all good. Here's hoping the rest of the week shapes up...

The photo of me was taken by SJ who takes spectacular photos and has made my eyes look blue and sparkly which in real life they are not. I was really happy when the photo was taken, at a retreat with friends and scrapping all weekend. So looking at the photo reminds me of that.
The papers I used were Scenic Route and Scrapworks - I've also used a multitude of different stamps on there from my collection to create the embellishments. A bit of bubble wrap paint stamping also thrown in for good measure. I love that ribbon printed to look like a tape measure too - I found it in my stash, I think it came with a kit.
It has been snowing here for the last hour and we have quite a blanket covering the ground. Not enough for another snow day, but it does look pretty. Just hoping the drive to work isn't too treacherous in the morning!

Here is my effort, with slightly strange colours from the scan for some reason, its a bit brighter in real life. It's quite busy and with lots of different papers from Love, Elsie, Kelly Panacci and Sassafrass as well as some cool doodle alphabet stamps and various stickers (which I'm really getting into again recently - is it just me??? They don't have to be tacky do they?)

I adapted the book from instructions in a book I got for Christmas, Mini-books in Minutes. There are loads of different ideas in there, and you can make them your own just by making small changes to the instructions or materials. In this example, it is easy to change the number of pages by adding more or less accordion folds to the bindings. This book is made from the gorgeous Kelly Panacci papers by Sandylion - I really love the little man and woman figures on several of the papers in the range.
Hope you have a good day if its a Snow Day near you, I may even get to scrap later!
