I've Been Scrapping!

This weekend hasn't seen me dashing down the motorway or getting the train into London to see Paul. This weekend I've had a lazy weekend at home and I've been scrapping!

I decided to do the Weekly Challenge over on UKScrappers.  The challenge was to use the sketch provided, use tearing or distressing and five different papers.  I came up with this:
Last year I went to the Vintage Fair on Southbank with my friend Sarah.  We had a lovely time and then lunch on the Tattershall Castle, one of the floating restaurants on Embankment.  I took this photo and kept laughing at it because her head looks exactly the same size as the London Eye!
I used up one of my old kits because, if I don't start using them up quickly, I'm going to become overrun by them!  To get rid of the leftover bits from the kit I decided to create my own Starting Point.  Starting Points are something Shimelle came up with last year and I love them.  I grabbed what was left from the kit, inked the edges, stuck them down and came up with this:
I'm not sure if I'll finish it today or another time, I haven't even hunted out a picture to go with it yet but at least the kit is used up and I have a started layout that I'm really pleased with so far.

The sun is shinning here and I'm going to play in the garden with Alfie for a while.

I hope your weekend is going well.

What a great starting point!

I'm still envious of your trip to the Southbank fair. You'd think the pain would be fading by now lol!

A lovely completed layout Jo and I love your starting point. I do Shimelles ones sometimes but never thought of doing my own - what a great way to get something done even if you dont finish.
