A quick share

As I said in my last post, I managed to get some layouts done last weekend! Three of them are for the 'Five Fave' project so I can't share them yet, but I can share this one!
I found that I had a lot of Shimelle's True Story collection still hanging around in my stash, so decided to use a bunch of it up! Sorry the photo of the layout is a bit wonky! The strip along the bottom is actually the branding strip on the other side, but I liked the look of it being there, so trimmed some off the top of the page to accommodate it.

This weekend I didn't get any layouts done, but I have started preparing my pages for JYC. I also went up to ExCel with Wendy and Sue for the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycrafts show. We had a fun day out although there was not too much in the way of scrapbooking 'stuff'. The stalls that did have scrapbooking stuff were absolutely mobbed! I did manage to spend a little bit of money though on a couple of snowflake punches, some embellishments and a couple of other bits and pieces including that good old standby of sticky pads! It made for a good day out with friends which was really important.
 I am off to see my GP this morning as I have absolutely no voice and a hacking cough and have been this way for about 7 days now. Time to see if I need some antibiotics I think! Especially as Wendy and I are off to see the final part of the Hunger Games tomorrow!

Hope you have a fun week!

Hope you feel better quickly! We're seeing the movie Wednesday if everything goes as planned. Nice layout!

I hope you feel better soon. There are lots of long lasting bugs about this year, I think.

It's good news to hear that the scrapbook stalls were busy..I was half expecting you to say there wasn't anything scrapbooking to buy. But that's great!

You're right about that branding strip. It looks perfect there.

That is a lovely layout. I hope you are feeling better soon x

Hope you're soon back to normal! The craft fair sounds like fun. I just put in a couple orders for some supplies for my Christmas Journal since there wasn't anything locally that appealed to me.

I'm late getting round so I hope you are fully recovered by now. My hubby dealt with a nasty cold for over a week too. Nice page, and I love the bottom strip as well - your use of Shimelle items shines here.
