You may have noticed a tailing off with blog posting here. Guilty as charged. The creating is still happening, but the photographing and sharing has not been so regular. I'm determined to get back into it a little. Please feel free to hold me to account! Part of the reason for my improved enthusiasm is that I've just spent a weekend with a bunch of scrappy ladies, most of whom I met through blogging. Those that don't blog either used to or know those that do/did! I wouldn't have had the pleasure of their company, with great cake too, if it hadn't been for this little corner of the Blogosphere. I'm determined not to let it die out. I need to reconnect with my friends' blogs too.
Anyway - here are a couple of pages made with my September Counterfeit Kit over the weekend - both of which are from holidays long past. The first page is from our Disney 2004 trip to Discovery Cove. I've already scrapped the reasons we went there in this post from 2013 so there's no extra journalling (yet). Another reason I must finish this holiday album is that the memories not yet scrapped are fading! Paint and stitching allowed me to join in with a Hey Little Magpie (Facebook) Challenge.
I set my fellow retreaters the challenge of using a September 2016 Pagemaps sketch - and the hexagons were pretty useful at obscuring disctractions in the foreground of my photo!

The second page I made from the kit this weekend also used a sketch - from new UK Kit Supplier Turtle Crafts. My friend Sue is on their DT and always gives good sketch!
Again journalling was non-existant - I need to write something on there, but a happy, chatty retreat with lots of banter isn't a great place to gather your thoughts for a page!
So, dear reader, thank you for still being here, I will be back soon I promise.
