hi my fellow followers
i know its been awhile since ive written on here , usually its just challenges i post on here , but today just thought , i would write something .
so after being away for 2 weeks , a first as we only ever go away for 6 -7 days at the most, i came home with enthusiasm with lots of beachy photos to create layouts,
on the 1st of every month, i get excited about doing the months challenges, print out sketches,& colour palettes, that are required and photos , yes ,there is a lot , and i usually do most of them. in one month, so i just do the ones that have blogs on here & last year, you would have been sick of seeing two hundred and twenty two layouts on here you would have unfriended me LOl so only put up ones that have some blogs, not the 216 challenge, which is more of inspiration challenge to see how many you can get done in one year .
, yes i have that paper at home or no, i need to buy this paper for this challenge, and collect the new ranges near the start of the month, with magazines, and to chat to the wonderful ladies at Kaiser of course an extra bonus.
but as Kaiser closed for good on the 4th march, i haven't felt like doing any now, i haven't got that , feeling oh i have those papers, i will go home tonight and create,maybe feeling .am i in a lull, maybe my challenge days are over, i hope not , but maybe i just need to take a seat back and do something else ??
I dont know ,if doing 222 layouts last year has also dampened my spirits, although , this year, i dont have to do 217 in the challenge, im only up to 21 at the moment a far cry from last years count.
last year , i was at the craft alive show here in logan, and saw a beautiful mini album, by sandy Rufus with heartfelt creations, papers, so i bought an album with papers, and thought my mum is turning 85 this year, i will make her a mini album, well, i have a operation ( eye) coming up soon and i really want to get it started , but what if i make a mess of it, then it will be ruined, so i got this brainy idea on saturday night, why dont i do one for me, i haven't found all the right pics for mum yet,
so here is my front page
now to go and find all my photos that i have had had taken over the years of Halloween. i may get back to challenges, maybe i just need a break. for a few weeks, after doing a few pages here in mini style, i may get my mojo back before the end of the month,
i suppose it wont kill me not to do challenges, but it keeps me sane LOl and now that i have bought all these papers from Kaiser i best start using them, maybe cause i bought so many before they closed, that im overwhelmed with them all now finding a place to put them.
i may have to sort them again and see what papers i will really use, kit them up and then use them that way and whats left sell at another garage day sale., i still have over 400 that a lady was going to buy off me 2 years ago but fell though, that was though online, im a bit not so sure now to go that way again. but will see how i go.
thanks for listening,
