HSMS catch up

Yesterday was spent doing college work that needed handing in last night, and as always I leave things until the last minute! I was printing the documents out at 6:35pm as I had to be at college at 7:00pm... I have always been like this, I don't suppose I will ever change so I'm not even going to say i'll try too...LOL!
Yesterdays prompt was the last of the colours with pink replacing violet in the rainbow. These are my pink and brown glove/mittens. I love these as they keep you so warm, and you don't have to take off the whole mitten to be able to get money out of your purse or open the front door... just folded back and button up and you have fingerless gloves... how clever is that?!
So today we start a new challenge on HSMS. Favourite spots in and around your home, today being the living room. Now I could say that my favourite spot in the living room is our big comfy sofa but I decided to show you my elephant ornaments. I think these are the oldest things I own, as they belonged to my great great grandparents. They are made of ebony and should have ivory tusks, but not many of these are still in place. These are the only things I wanted from the house clearance when my nan passed away. Even though they are antique I think they have a modern look about them and really like them. In the background you can see part of a photo of Oliver playing with his trains. This is one of my favourite photos of him, and it was with these photos that I first learnt to do spot colour in photoshop.Tonight I plan to finish a LO that has been hanging around half done for a few weeks... it's for the Scrapfairies November gallery, but I am so eager to start using the December stash as it is gorgeous.... I must be strong, I really need to finish the LO first or I fear it will get pushed to the bottom of the pile and never get done!
Also got a fab delivery of naked cd envelopes to make a few mini books with. And I am expecting a kit from Caroline ready to do a doodling class for the Sprinkles blog. The kit is only £5 so if you fancy having a go at the class I am going to design you can get one HERE.

Great shot of your elephants - I love it when something has a story or sentiment attached because you see it in a different light. x

Just been catching up with your photos Louise, and your stuff is amazing. You would get my vote for BOB/Scrapbooker of the year too. Love the rolls of paper on the bottom of the LO!
