Today I ran away

for a few hours and had some ‘me’ time.

It has been a tiring week with both Gary and I have both had colds this week and for the last few days have been a struggle.  Gosh I miss the ‘sick days’ you could have from work – you know when you could chill out and sleep during the  day.  Unfortunately, children mean you just don’t get to do that anymore.

So this morning, I really felt like doing some scrapbooking but really didn’t feel inspired to sit at home and do it.. the solution…I headed down to my local scrapboking store to crop for a few hours.  It was lovely, I didn’t sit with anyone (my own table to spread out) and it was so nice to have a few hours to myself.  Of course, what a pain packing up all my stuff to leave the house – why am I so ambitious or is that disorganised?  I went armed with a couple of online challenges to do and some sushi for lunch and had a nice coffee. 

I must admit it took me awhile to get into each layout but I did do one and half whilst I was there.  Hopefully, this will kickstart some creativity.  The first one I tackled was the latest Color Room palette 58… hmmm a tricky colour scheme for one that likes BRIGHT colours. 

This was the palette. 

And my layout:

Products used: Websters Papers -various ranges (the background sheet is very very old – I think from a Paper Pesto Kit!!), Pink Paislee Anthology, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch, Websters Alphas, Misc Tags

It was nice to get some scrapbooking in today… thanks for visiting!
