Well i've been a very busy girl recently (hence the lack of posts) and have no time for anything crafty. But after i saw Annie's post below about Ali E's challenge's i had to have a go. So here is the result. i cheated a bit by choosing which papers to use rather than grabbing random ones, but hey rules are made to be broken. I was really struggling with what to do with the squares once i had mounted them, so i picked up the latest CK for inspiration and went no further than the front cover. i rarely scraplift, but Denise Pauley's fab LO (school days) seemed to fit, so all design credit goes to her. Thanks Annie for inviting me to take up your challenge. The LO is balanced better in reality, but the scanner decided to lop some of the right hand side off. i was originally going to use Heidi Swapp rub-on's for the title but they turned out disasterous, so i opted for Basic Grey stickers. Paper is from Create Paper. I hadn't realised how small my square punch, will definnatly have to invest in a new one!

I spent last weekend in Bournemouth visiting my sister and went to the original Lush store in Poole! It was tiny! I love the southcoast, I'm never moving away again. Also spent a bit of money in the sales, but my excuse (& it's a valid one, honest) is that i need new clothes, because i've gone down a size. We've been planning our trip to Barcelona, which i'm getting really excited about. If you've got any hints about where to go/what to do, please post.

Have been here there and every where hanging out with friends and family and am fully booked for the next week or so. I'm going to a Venture party on Tuesday which should be fun, I love their stuff, shame they are so expensive. And talking of photography, i have been SLR shopping today, and have definatly decided on the Canon EOS 350D, so will be getting that in the next week or so, can't wait!
