Oops I Did It Again

Impressive thunderstorm .... check.
Falling asleep beside S ..... check.
Lovely two hour nap .... check.

There are worse bad habits to adopt I suppose.

On the bright side my 15 minutes of craftiness last night was successful.

I managed to complete my first layout and got a good starting point made on my next one.

I ended up going with hand written journalling after playing with a handful of journalling cards. Nothing quite worked so I decided finished was definitely preferable to perfect.

I had pulled out an older OA paper from my Handmade collection so I used that as a base and grabbed some scraps from Summer of 69 and put together a layered starting point in the style of Shimelle and that gives me a chance to choose a photo and get embellishing tonight.

I have no great plan for this start but I do love all the bright colours. Here is hoping Miss S gets to bed without me tonight and gives me a chance to play!

Just a reminder that the 15 minute challenge competition runs until Midnight Sunday night EST and there is a $10 Studio Calico voucher up for grabs for all those who take part. Please share something you have made in a 15 minute period in the comments on this or any post from this week and you will go in the draw to win. If I get more than ten entries I will add a second voucher to the mix. You know you want to.

Brr it is a very chilly 24 degrees here now - I have my cardigan on! I hope you are keeping warm and crafty wherever you happen to be today.


  1. Love that clean design of your layout and the Shimelle base is great too!!

  2. Very cute layout!

  3. So pretty! Love the background paper you chose!

  4. I love going to Shimelle for ideas on how to layer. She does an amazing job. Whenever I get stuck in a rut, I go to watch one of her videos and usually I can the ball rolling then :)
