Been cropping

And only managed to get one LO done! I am such a faffer... I knew what papers I wanted to use so at least that was one problem solved. The first thing that I did wrong was gut a little too much of the base cardstock, so a rethink was needed to cover the hole! Then after pushing bits of paper around for ages, I took the plunge and stuck them down. I bought the most delicious chipboard shapes from Sam whilst having a break from the LO, which of course meant that I then needed to use them so had to have another rethink...LOL! In the end the LO turned out completely different from the idea I originally had, but I am happy with the result. And I love the paper rolling in the bottom right and corner.
Had a wonderful time chatting and laughing. Thanks Paul for the posh serviettes, thanks Jen for the loan of the stamps, thank you to Michelle for the loan of the scallop template. Thank you to Mary for the lovely cups of tea... everybody should have a Mary at their crops:) Thanks to everyone else for the giggles. But most importantly, huge APOLOGIES to Jen for ykw...

Self portrait Saturday
Well I look grim, but this is what I look like today... my cheeks are a bit flushed and the dark circles under my eyes aren't a good look... but at least I don't have tons and tons of spots at the moment!
