It's Been a Busy One

I have been a very busy bee this weekend and now I feel exhausted, but happy.

I've been co-hosting a mini cyber crop weekend for the mighty, mighty Red Ribbons team  over on UKScrappers.  It has been so much fun and I think a lot of people have enjoyed it, which is what it's all about.

I have also been down to see Paul, which was lovely.  While I was down that neck of the woods I went to see Sarah at S J Crafts open day.  It was great to be able to stroke some papers and even better when Paul bought me some of the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas papers and some gorgeous Jenny Bowlin Chalkboard alphas :)  To make up for me dragging him to look at stash he then dragged me round the county looking for cars!

I did manage a couple of layouts while I was with Paul.  For the special Red Ribbons weekend, Shimelle very kind designed us out own special Starting Point. She has hidden it on her blog so I'm not going to link it from here because it's a special thing for our fun weekend, here's my layout though:
I used the Pink Paislee, Hometown Summer papers and the embellishments from the August Sarah's Cards Kit.
I'll save the other layout for another time because now I'm just about to hope back over to UKScrappers and upload another challenge.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've had a great weekend.
