Hurrah, I scrapped!!

This week I managed to shop!!! I'm usually pretty well behaved when it comes to stash shopping - I have a monthly budget for it and I stick to it... this month was bonus month though which coincided with the stitch and craft show at the Excel centre... so Jo and Jane (my 2 scrapping budies from work!) and Jo's hubby Dave, set off there to spend some cash. We didn't expect to find much there to be honest after seeing a list of exhibitors - Banana Frog came up trumps, spent a fair whack of my bonus budget there and at a few other stalls... then went to Artbase yesterday and spent up the rest - here's the fruits of my labour:



Yesterday, I cleaned... 3 hours sorting out my scrap room. Now I'm not an untidy person, at all, but I'd decided it was time to reorganise a little and to purge a lot.... one large bin bag later and it was all done... and then finally, it's felt like ages, when in fact it's only been 10 days (ha ha!!) - today I scrapped a layout!! Last 2 I did were for the first round of the Scrapion's league (I'm thorough to the next round, gulp), then last weekend we were in Amsterdam (I'll post some pics in the week)... so today I made this baby, for challenge 11 from the Elsie challenges on the 'Tude boards (love it there, hi girls!!)





Used: Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe diecuts, banana frog alpha stamps, crate paper - spurs and to meet the challenge I took inspiration from a layout from Elsie Flannigans blog (2nd of 2 layouts for this entry) - specifically the circle border on the photo and the circular embellie...(mine is made from a scrap of crate paper, a clear circle metal rimmed tag and a fair few brads)

Happy Sunday (ggrrrr to Monday mornings!)
