I used some of the Heidi Swapp invisibles to do the circles at the bottom. I love the colours against that fab blue.
I'm off to the Zoo with school tomorrow so it's an early night for me, I'm gonna need all the energy I can muster!
After our Scrapaholix day on Saturday playng with the Heidi Swapp Invisibles I was keen to try some more but it seems the papers aren't stocked by many UK retailers so I was thinking about it and realised that it would probably have the same resist effect if I clear embossed and rubbed ink over. I had a little play and did these...Am gonna experiment some more today. The weather is awful and I need to save my energy for our school trip to the Zoo tomorrow so I'm gonna have a quiet day crafting.
Have a Happy Monday xxxx

Today was Scrapaholix at Kim's, it was lovely to see everyone cos it's been a while since the last one. The kit was fab, Heidi Swapp Masks and Invisibles papers. Perfect as you can make them whatever colour you want to suit your photos. Everyone ended up creating really different effects.

Cute aren't they? And really affordable too, am really looking forward to her future creations.
Finally, this evening I made a start on the project kit I got from Scrapagogo. Its a mini book from Maya Road and is gonna be perfect for the photos of our Sports Day we had on holiday. Am planning on getting stuck into it tomorrow after I've been to have a nosey round the new M&S thats opening up the road, we've been waiting for it for about 2 years so it better be good, or at least it better have a Cafe!

So when I came home I was in need of de-stressing so I did this layout using my GoGo kit.
The background is a felt sheet which was really nice to work with, made a bit of a change.
I've spent the rest of the afternoon trying to attach something to an email. I am having to use Mum and Dad's computer at the moment because my charger has broken and it just doesn't have the software that mine does. But, unless I find £90 lying around for a new charger, I just have to get used to it.

I am especially loving the MME papers, fabric thickers and the paper flowers and.... everything else! I have done 3 LO's so far, two for the new GoGo Academy which has just gone live, and this one of the Twins on Holiday last week...
The colours suited the photos so well, and the paper was so pretty that I didn't really have to do very much to this one, infact I almost felt like a cheat!
I spent the day at the Zoo today with my Nephews which of course gave me the opportunity to take lots of photos and I've come back with lots of LO ideas. Off to get some pics printed tomorrow.

I packed everything into my PM trolley case so I packed basic tools and glues in one pocket. I took a craft knife and ruler instead of a paper trimmer to save space and a cuttting mat takes up no room in the boot underneath the suitcases! I took one of the velcro pouches out and filled with a small selection of stickers, embellies, a couple of journalling tags. I allowed myself my scallop edge and circle punches as I can do so much with them and I did sneak in my SideKick and 1 Sizzix alphabet to take care of the titles. I took just one cd case full of stamps (which actually I didn't end up using but it didn't matter cos they took up so little space.)
There were a few items that were a bit bulkier but I couldn't live without, my ribbon bag, inks and a few packs of Thickers but I used them on practically every layout so it was completely justified!
I also managed to buy a few bits while I was there in the local market so I challenged myself to make use of these straight away. I bought a packet of blank cards too so that when I started running out of layouts to do I used the scraps to make a few cards.
I don't know if this all makes sense, I feel like I'm starting to ramble! I hope it answers your question Annie!
I was happier with some than others, but generally pleased cos I had made up the page kits in advance so was limited on stash for each one.
Back with more later x

This means no post holiday blues this year. I've been able to come home and be grateful for the home comforts, broadband, fully functional TV, enough room to swing a cat(!) and as I'm feeling a little under the weather, my own bed (which I've been in since 7.30pm!)
I also came home to the sunny glow of my GoGo kit which is just fab and will suit my holiday snaps down to the ground. Can't wait to get stuck in.
I'll leave you with my last two weeks 365 photos so you can see a snapshot of my hols
Back with photos of layouts and other things tomorrow.
