New class

So, the new class begins! I've made a title page, but scarily it would appear that no one has posted theirs on the forum yet and I don't want to go first so for the moment I'm just going to show it here. The prompt for today was to use up metal embellishments which was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't have many fancy brads or buckles but I found a cream metal buckle from a kit I had ordered a while ago and have made that my centre piece. As the theme is 'Celebrate Life' I thought it was kind of appropriate to lean the page up against a bottle of champagne ;-) I have bought this little half bottle of champers for a friend's birthday as it is so sweet in it's little sleeve, however, I strongly suspect I may be suffering from 'It's so cute I don't want to give it away' syndrome ...

On a more serious note I want to apologise for not commenting on people's blogs so regularly this week. The poorly shoulder I had last week has developed into full blown frozen shoulder and it is so painful to lift my left hand onto a keyboard to type. I can browse around to my heart's content with my right hand on the mouse, but typing has been agony. I have some high voltage painkillers now that have serious 'these can become addictive' warnings all over them and things seem a tiny bit better today so normal service will resume asap I promise. I hate typing one handed! The thing I am missing most is driving, I simply cannot change gear. How handy though, that I should be off work just as a new Shimelle class is starting ;-)

I love your cover page, and you shouldn't be embarrassed to be the first one in the forum!!! Funny, I'm usually embarrassed to be one of the last. It's 7:00 a.m. here and I just returned from my morning walk...should be getting ready for work right now! I would love to take the day off and work on Shimelle's challenge instead!!!

Sorry to hear about your shoulder giving you problems. Get better soon! xo

So sorry to hear about your shoulder pain! I would lend you my car if I could - no gears to change!!

Feel better soon!

Your page is gorgeous!! I have only just looked at the prompt - but then it's 7:30am here so I have an excuse ;)

Deb your page is fantastic and you have done well to make it with your shoulder out of action.
Good luck with recovery - and .... whatever you do don't have a tipple on the champers with the medication on board - I'm not sure what would happen ;-)

Love your page - saw it on the forum first, and read about your poor shoulder there too, I'm sorry xx But at least you do get more time at home during class, so every cloud, eh? And you made up for any lack of commenting with your idea about training The Hamster to dust!! x
