I am an extremly slow scrapbooker...i have been known to take as long as 3 days to put together one layout! The reason? well i like to take my time over a page and enjoy the process...it is time on my own doing something that i love and is all mine ( with the sometimes exception of harry who pops his head in the door)
But this page came together in a few hours! Partly i think because i knew what i wanted to do on it, as i have had the design in my head for a few weeks now...so i think that helped a bit.
Also i ENJOYED making it! sounds strange but i had such a nice evening...scrapbooking , watching telly and my other half even bought me up a pancake and a cup of tea...
All in all the perfect evening!
I loved doing all the individual sections on this...
using some new product that i have picked up on my scrapbooking travels this week...
and using some old embellies that i have had lying around my room for ages!
and some new ones...the NOTE circle you can get here from Papermaze.

On a more exciting note! popped down to Papermaze this morning and picked up all ( yes all gulp!) the new Cosmo Cricket! OH MY WORD! i love ever single piece!!!! and am going to dig into it this afternoon.
On a not so exciting note! i have to go back to work on Monday :( still only 5 weeks left!
