Finished one Shimelle class - now on to another!

I had a great time at Leannie's Lovelies Crop in St Helens on Sunday.  So friendly and civilised (with lunch delivered including gorgeous lemon cup cakes!) I will definitely be going again :)


Anyway, I'm normally quite productive at crops but had set myself the challenge of finishing 4x6 Photo Love which meant December's page using 12 photos!  It took most of the day but I am so pleased with it - it was worth it!  I have used photos of our day at Disney Hollywood Studios in 2009.  We were lucky to be there when they were hosting one of the Star Wars weekends and with all of us being aid fans in this house it was a must!

The page is quite difficult to explain but essentially it is 6 double sided papers with a photo either side and they get a little bit larger with each layer.  They are then all tied with twine (thanks to the lovely Claire for that!) and attached to the page.







So having ticked that box and done all 12 of the challenges from last year (albeit a little later than planned) I am now really excited that Cover to Cover is starting soon.  This is Shimelle's new class based on organising your albums and getting them to flow. Something I have been thinking about lot lately.


I'm really hoping this will get me more organised and find a way to fill in the gaps in my album - I know they are there!  I'd love to hear from anyone else who has signed up to this.

Today was a day off, now I have my new four day week, which was unusual but very enjoyable and a chance to catch up on jobs and do some stash sorting which went quite well :).  Just as well I had nothing special planned as the weather was plain awful!

Hope it may be have been sunny in your neck of the woods!
