Hubby and Oliver is currently away at the moment in Poole (south of England). Hubby is giving a helping hand to his brother-in-law in some DIY stuff! As I had a crop to go to, didn't fancied going down to be bored to tears! Anyway, with Zac soundly asleep by 9ish, did another letter, N!
Regarding scrapbooking kits, the novelty of it has worn off and now I only get Homegrown kits ('cos I'm on the DT team) and Back Porch Memories (for the versality of the papers). I find that I don't use the BPM papers enough or perhaps it's because I've too many papers! I hardly ever use up an entire 12x12 sheet of paper. Hence, after making a LO, there's a lot left. I tell myself that I need to make at least 2-3 LOs using the kit papers to justify their expenditure! So far, no problem with Homegrown but struggling to use BPM.... if they had a competition, perhaps it might encourage me to use the papers more often. Anyway, thankfully the A-Z album is forcing me to use the papers. I think after this album is finished, need to get on with my France album, followed by a A Year in Review 2006 album. The latter will be very enjoyable and fun to do!
Next week will be an exciting week, not b'cos the kids go back to school but my arrival of Rhonna Farrer stamps! Been waiting for them for a while now! Also, my Shoebox Trims ribbons/fabric/fibres. I subbed to them and for £9ish including p&p, it's well worth the money. You get 10 one yard ribbons, 10 fibres and 6 fabric strips! And I actually use them too. Waiting rather impatiently for my Designing with Type book from a UK Sponsor ... luv Autumn Leaves books... they never fail to impress! Sad to say that I'm still searching for my scrapping style... there's so much to experiment that I can't stick to one style yet. Perhaps it may emerge one day!
Urghh! Need to get on with one assignment regarding retro LO... Might give it a thought in the next few days.....
