With so many new supplies to play with, I thought I should use up some of my last kit and made this little notebook based on one by Maggie Holmes. The covers are laminated and the pages are College Press Journaling cards. I'm going to use it to keep track of all my crafty project ideas.

The stamp on the tag is from my new Scarlet Lime kits- and oh my there is loads and loads in it I feel slightly overwhelmed by it.
The second challenge I caught up on was Overlooked which was on my Fridge and shopping habits. I've done 3 LOs for this now and I'm going to start constructing it into a minibook soon.
My two new classes started this week - firstly 'No Place Like Home' (which I plan to use all my Scarlet Lime kit on). There have been 5 daily prompts this week, but as the girls are on their Easter holidays at the moment, I'm saving them to work on when they go back to school. The theme this week has been Hometowns or places where you feel at home and includes a couple of LOs and 2 minibooks.
The second class is Painting with Light, which doesn't actually start until 4th April but we've had homework to upload to the forum so that CJ can get a feel for our work. This included a self-portrait and for a laugh I'll post it here. It was my first time using the self timer and a tripod and so the result is slightly out of focus.

I spent ages on this LO, cutting out, working out the alphas, restamping the journaling block 3 times, yet I don't like it anymore than the LO below which I spent about 45 mins on. It just shows that it's not how long you spend but the end outcome that matters. That said I do enjoy the creative process when I'm spending longer on a LO, it generally means I'm trying out something I've not done before.

So it looks like it's going to be a busy April!

The 1st two LOs are using more of my SL kit. The new kits go postal this week, so I thought I'd better use some of my supplies up.
The next two are for the OLW challenge - TRUST and TIME
This is a 12x12 DLO of the weekend I've just spent with my NCT friends. It's the first weekend away I've had from the girls and Steve, and had such a lovely time just being ME!
