Wow! Five layouts in two days!

Yes, I really have completed five layouts in two days! As I said in an earlier post, I have joined Shimelle's party and although I am working full time and don't have much free time to join in, on Friday afternoon, once I had completed all my housework, I sat down with all the pdf's I had printed off and I made a start.

I have been having so much fun digging through my stash and dragging out all the patterned paper that I didn't really know what to do with.
Some of it I had just bought because I liked the look of, some of it had come in kits. I had quite a few sheets of Cosmo Cricket Deloverly which I loved the look of in the shop, brought home and then thought was too patterned to use! However, I have now nearly used it all up!
I have three more sheets of mixed patterns on my desk ready and waiting to go - just need to find the time now to sit down with them! However, I do have some holiday coming up from Wednesday onwards, so hopefully will be able to crack on then.
We have to take Penny up to London on Friday to see a dentist about having her wisdom teeth out - poor thing! She has been really suffering and the best thing would be for her to have them removed. We have said that after the appointment we will go and do something nice and so she has asked if we could go to London Zoo. I feel really awful that at the age of 20 we have never taken her there although we live so close! So, keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather is nice!
This I have counted as patterned paper - well, it is just! I have a little story to tell about the camera on the right. It is normally on the left of the layouts. Under the windowsill on the left is the heater, which during the summer is, obviously, turned off. The other evening it was chilly in the conservatory so I had the heater turned on and didn't notice that the camera strap was dangling down! Yesterday morning when I went into the conservatory I noticed that the strap had melted onto the heater - oops! Luckily it hadn't caused a fire, and also it peeled off the heater and hasn't caused any damage. I have learned my lesson though and during the winter it shall stay on the right!

Wow, these are all so lovely. Great job using up some pretty patterned papers. I think the Amazing Amy is my favorite - all that lovely pink & such a cute photo.

Congrats on getting so much done Becky...I know what you mean about the Delovely papers, but once you start to cut into them they are much more useable, aren't they?

They all look lovely - wow you've really been on a tear haven't you? Yikes about the camera strap. Glad the damage was minimal.
