Thankfully I've been feeling much better today, just need to get rid of the annoying cough now. We popped out for a while today, had lunch, did a little shopping and went to Hobbycrafts. I keep debating buying the Papermania Portobello paper and finally decided I must have it. I bought the 12 x 12 pack as I thought I could use it for scrapbooking too. I never seem to have enough red and blue papers so that solves that problem now. I also picked up a Tim Holtz on the edge die with little houses which I keep thinking of buying. Surprisingly good value, as often Hobbycraft are more expensive, only £7.99. Hubby said don't keep looking it if you want it buy it, so I did! Expect to see it used very soon.

I'm trying to make at least one layout a week and made this one last night. I've used Core'dinations, Bo Bunny et cetera and We R memory keepers Travel Light papers. Lots of tearing, sanding and stapling on this one. I've used Tim Holtz journal tag, embossing folders, on the edge cog die which I double embossed and then made 2 cogs with, and added some metal cogs.
