Be Yourself

This weeks LCC challenge was to
...create a project based on any theme but it had to contain the word BE in the title or greeting. Extra points if you used 2 or more patterned papers, fabric and more than one photo.

And heres what I did! In the nick of time as always! Papers from K & Co Studio K stack, cotton fabric stamped with a lovely stamp in coffee bean brilliance ink. I can remember the name of the stamp company but its a uk manufacturer and I'm sure I have the leaflet from the fair somewhere so I can find out if anyones interested! The rest was from my stash, how gorgeous are these paper flowers. I've just noticed on this pic theres a tiny sliver of the base card visible, Ive now sorted that on the card but I'll never get another halfway decent pic now its dark so you'll have to trust me, Ive fixed it.

The car has broken down twice in the past week, the first cost us £140 for the starter motor and the second which wasn't a real break down more of a won't start cost £60 for new glow plugs. All of its unplanned expense so it means Im on a stash diet til at least Christmas, boohoo. How am I going to cope, don't get me wrong, I have plenty of stuff to play with but there's always more wonderful tempting things out there, like chipboard, all mines homemade and I'd love an alpha to play with and LCC is having a 25% off everything sale so Im missing out on some gorgeous bargains as Tracie has oodles and oodles of gorgeous papers.

Such is life and priorities though, at least the poor little red fiat is well again, even if she is getting on a bit old.

Ive just had a thought, do you think Santa reads blogs? Maybe I should put my Christmas list up here incase he does!

Its been bloomin freezing today and right now I have a date with the sofa and a hot cup of earl grey and whatever rubbish telley I can find to watch.

No piccy :(
Maybe if you write your christmas list on the PC and leave it on the screen, then 'Santa' might come in the room and read it .... ;)
