So now I challenge you to leave behind your safety zone and do something completely out of the ordinary with your scrapping. Use materials you wouldn't normally use, papers you wouldn't usually be drawn to and tools or techniques that have never taken your fancy before. I'd love to see your work, you can upload them and post the link as a comment here.

Not much to report, yesterday was the Leeds crop, the busiest I've seen yet. The shop just gets better and better too and has some gorgeous new stuff in now, including the gorgeous new PaperMania foam swirl and word stamps at a bargainous 99p! I've already used them on the LO I've already mentioned, and on the recipe cards too, so I think they've paid for themselves already!
Should be receiving my QuicKutz Silhouette this week and hopefully dh will get his new DSLR too - no doubt a Nikon D80. Can't wait, I really need him to take lots of lovely new photos for me to scrap. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of photos, but most are quite amateur and some out of focus as our last digital camera was completely rubbish. I really want some gorgeous new pictures to play with! I took some lovely ones of Harry playing with his Brio train set this morning, although I won't know how good they are until I get back my camera and memory card. He's been behaving so well since bumping and cutting his head on Thursday (quick trip to a&e but a very brave little boy), not sure if it's coincidence or everyone been more relaxed and happier this weekend, but it's just wonderful. I'm certainly going to enjoy it while it lasts!
Catch you soon. x

It's been a funny old day. I was online and hitting the redial on my landline and mobile phones this morning desparate to get tickets for Take That in Manchester in December. Both me and my friend failed miserably. Then my magazine came and that cheered me up. I went to get a bath and when I came back down more new dates had been released and some were already sold out! Well I jumped back online and after another few failed attempts I managed to bag two tickets to London O2 (former Millennium Dome) on December 7! It's going to be a long journey getting down there from Leeds but well worth it! I wasn't a fan until a friend - the same one I'm taking this time - took me to last year's concert and I had an amazing night. I totally love the new album too, oh, and Jason is a bit scrummy! Lol! Here's a little treat for all you other Jason fans out there.
Also spent the afternoon at fellow scrapper's house and wow, her scraproom is just sooo nice, I'm so envious, all that space, all that daylight, all that stash, I could happily move in! Also busy handing over birthday cards made using the new Easy Patterns for Scrapbooking book, the birthdays all come at once don't they? Also got one to hand over to one of Harry's young friends at his lunch and play date tomorrow. Can't wait, but musn't forget the camera this time!
Bye for now!
