Finally ... some crafting

I didn't want another month to go by and have only 1 post to show for it. Plus, I've also been feeling a tad more creative this month.  I think this may have more to do with actually having in front of me photos to actually scrap.  Plus, I'm doing a sort of project life ... and by that I mean, I'm taking a photo every day on my iphone and printing out the "my week" app photos.

I've actually decided to do this in a A4 format, as I want it to be a quick, fun project ... which requires little thought lol. 

So armed with these ideas .. I not only shocked myself, but the girls at last Thursday, and Saturday crop by doing a total of 6 layouts! ... yes, that's shocked you all too.  And .... I still managed to make 2 trips to starbucks for a caffine fix.

I find these really quick and easy to do at a crop, although once I'm up to date .. I'm hoping to spend just a bit more time on them, but I'm happy with the format.

A friend has said that Paperchase had some rather yummy A4 files in, so I feel a trip coming on for one.

Pinch ... Punch

First of the month :)

... sorry about that, but its always something Simon and I still do ...Will we ever grow up lol.

Anyhow, I know I said I'd be back with a bit of crafting, but I still haven't photographed it - so for now, here's my week 4 in pictures. 

Firstly it was Chinese new year, so we had stir-fry ... yes, that really is as exciting as my life gets LOL.  Another photo of a coffee shop, I'm afraid - then a few things to sort out still with the solicitors, and also we went to the crematorium and have arranged a place for Mum & Dad's ashes.  We actually placed Mum's ashes in with Dad, so they're truly together again now.  Anyhow, I wasn't sure I wanted to photograph the office where we made the arrangements, but I am doing this to journal my life, so I did.  Next,  was Simon having a cold ... hence the day nurse.  And lastly, it was Simon's birthday this past Monday, but on Sunday we had my aunt and cousins over and I made a Red Velvet Cake for him ... although, sadly it didn't turn out as red as I had hoped.

I also said to Fi, that I'd join in with  this weeks, what's on your workdesk? ..... and, well to be honest, not a lot - I've got a new set of stamps from Stamping Up to make some Easter Cards ... and there are a couple of half finished layouts, but that's about it.  So really I need to get my act together, don't I?
