It was the EK crop on Saturday and it turns out that was the place I had left my scrapping mojo. I shouldn't have been surprised really, it was the last place I saw it after all.
I'd lost all track of the days because of the new year bank holiday and thinking that Thursday was Friday, got my bag organised a day early. (Didn't stop me being late arriving on the actual day though) So being super organised, I arrived with a bag of coordinating papers and photos and departed with three - yes, you read that right, three - layouts!
Starting with a layout to celebrate the annual family photo on Christmas Day, then moving onto
a layout celebrating our trip to Edinburgh to visit our son and his girlfriend after their move 'up north' (Could moving from England to Scotland be considered emigrating abroad?) Then after lunch I did a scenic page
to show a couple of the sights we saw on our trip. I think this one needs a little more but I'm not sure what. There's a part of me that thinks a few splodges of misting or droplets of paint might finish it off but there's another part of me that thinks that something like that, done by someone like me, might 'finish it off' in totally the wrong way ;-)
I had a brilliant day, catching up with old friends, discovering that the lady sitting opposite me runs the company that sends out the monthly scrapbook kit subscription that I signed up for last year, and selflessly sampling the cupcakes that Karen made. You see she made two batches and for quality control purposes I had to make sure that both were equally good. The first one was vanilla, with a vanilla icing and the other was a marmalade infused sponge with an orange icing. It was a tough call but I think that after careful consideration and much deliberation the winner was .... no, it's no good, I really need to try both again ...
