How time flies

… when you have fallen behind with LSNED!  I didn’t get anything done this week so I found myself in a panic today as I know that falling behind is a slippery slope.  So I have actually got 3 pages done in between various chores:

19 I spend a lot of time trying to find embellishments to go on my pages, and often end up putting things on layouts just because I think I have to.  Sometimes though, a plain layout with a limited colour scheme works just as well

20 Teal or Duck Egg Blue.  How I love that colour.  Come in my house, you will find it in my lounge and dining room.  Open my wardrobe, you will be amazed how untidy it is  see how many clothes I have in that colour.  Look in my scrapbook supplies boxes, you will be amazed how untidy it is notice a predominance of papers in those tones.  It’s time to move on.  Time to embrace another colour.

21 I’m not a very confident scrapper.  I’m ok at copying instructions or scraplifting ideas, but when left to my own devices I’m not often happy with what I end up with.  Denise is always telling me about new crops, weekends away, scrapping retreats etc and inviting me along.  I’m always a bit hesitant and worried about being out of my depth with these very talented ladies, but I’ve been so pleased that I’ve let her talk me into going to some of them.  I’ve agreed to go to the Cambridge Croppers with her on Saturday – wish me luck!

I'm sure you'll enjoy the new crop...and your pages will be great.

I hope you enjoy your next crop. Don't get so bogged down with thinking that you must do what the others are doing - scrapping styles differ widely & if we all scrapped the same then I think we would all get a bit bored!! xx

I would say time flies when you are having fun, but I've just wasted a whole morning sitting in the dentists, so maybe not..

Duck egg blue is a real fav of mine too. Along with sage green. If we lived closer we could scrap in blue and green at some of these crops together :) have fun in Cambridge

Teal and duck egg blue are my faves too...no other colour quite'does it' for me, I'm afraid! Really hope you can relax enough to enjoy the crop!

I am another one who adores these colours so would be quite happy with anything from your wardrobe or scrapping paper pile if you're throwing out! Hope you enjoy the crop ...

Yes I am afraid that I have fallen behind but have the digi part of the pages done I just have to make up the hybrid bit. Love how your book is coming together.

Hey, Deb, found you. Alexa came to my blog after yours and posted a link.
Yes, I am a blue and green kinda girl too but my house is painted very neutral cream and brown but you should see my blue sofa!
See you Saturday.
