Stuck in a rut

i didn't manage to get it done in time, but i did actually manage to complete Ali's AZine challenge this week!! The challenge was to use at least three stamps, one geometric, one text & one organic. i used a MM foam stamp, heidi swapp rolling stamp, heidi swapp circle stamp all of which i stamped in purple. Then i used my hole punch to create a mask & stamp over the circles in black with a PaperArtsy stamp. Unfortunatly, you can't really see it in the scan, but it does look cool, i promise. i've decided i definately need to play with my stamps more often. i also challenged myself to use a colour i'm extremly uncomfortable with as this is challenge 8 on the color blog. In my eyes purple is just ick. Paper is from Cosmo Cricket, jems are from MME. Journalling reads: 'las ramblas sept 06'.

Last week was a much of nothingness. i haven't been in a very good frame of mind & haven't been able to shake it off so decided not to blog. i've also been stuck in a creative rut, which is annoying because i've actually had the time to scrap & wanted to, just not felt very inspired to. i think the lack of space to do it in is probably causing this. It's so much effort to get everything out. i keep most of my stuff in my room & some of it in the utility room. But it is too dark & cold there now to be able to scrap in, so i have to get the bits that i think i'll want to use & take them into the living/dining room. But then i inevitably decide i need other stuff so end up walking from room to room & it takes for ever to get a page finished. i miss having my own place.

On Thursday some of Lloyds family came round for lasagne & pizza. Tuesday marked the 4th anniversary since his bone marrow transplant so we are pretty lucky to be able to do stuff like this together.

Over the weekend i pretty much just watched films & slept, as i haven't had a chance to do that in a while. i did however, leave the house in order to see The Feeling in concert. They did a cover of 'Video Killed the Radio Star', originally recorded by Buggles, which had us all dancing. They also did a track from their new album, which is in the making. It was fun, but Keane are still my all time favourites :)
