 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 .
so then  my next thing to do is to go down to Kaiser and browse  the  paper racks,  ,yes,  i have lots at  home  ( enough for a shop  ) ,but  most times, i just like to look though theirs in a  orderly fashion and then decide
, 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,
