Well, see, I'm a firm believer in not blogging unless there's something to say. Because I'm hugely capable of ranting and rambling without sense or conclusion. So I try to keep this very public corner of my mind to some sort of acceptable standard. It's about the only discipline I manage to stick to, and it's entirely due to you, gentle reader. I worry that you may think I'm a nutter if I don't keep my grip.
While I was packing for the Crop on Friday afternoon, I decided to have a go at my stash of chipboard. I've got an A4 box full of all sorts of bits that I had to have. And frankly, I'm sick of moving it between cupboards and using tape to hold the lid on because it's too full and well, you get it. Another 'trend' that I fell for and haven't used, for sure. So, the running theme on LOs by me for the next few months will be chipboard embellishments. The more, the better. So here's my first page:
Five pieces of chipboard (the tag is a piece too)..believe me, that will not be a record! There is so much to say about this occasion that for once I didn't journal straight away, and am now considering my options. As a believer in handwritten journalling, I've got to write it out first, to see how much I have to make room for etc. Oh the logistical planning that I SHOULD have thought about first! Some of you are kind enough to comment that I don't show enough of my scrapbook stuff on the old blog. That's because I don't do enough. An all day crop and I did two LOs. And it was all packed and kitted so I've no idea why...I guess I just picked the wrong photos to scrap. If they don't put me in the mood, I can't do it. What a diva.
You can just, JUST see a second page underneath this LO...a teeny edge at left. That is my March calendar. Yep seriously, pre-made, pre-filled-in-with-birthdays-etc and I still haven't made time to stick in the frame. No wonder it takes me a day to make two scrapbook pages.
