~ Lipstick, Powder and Paint! ~

Good afternoon! Well today I have been very productive, unfortunately not in a crafty sense. However it has been painting, gloss painting to be exact. I have decided that although I enjoy painting, gloss painting is just not for me! But it is for my craft room so I must continue.

However, on a crafty note:

Class no.1 from GogoGetaway March 2011

I have been wanting to scrap these photos for ages but just not found the right way, especially since my best friend has split from the fella she was with when these photos were taken. These photos were taken for at Epsom Derby, we went for her 21st Birthday.

Unfortunately the camera hasn't picked it up but the white card underneath the pink patterned paper was painted with white pearlescent paint so it shimmers in the light. A few pink spots were cut out then punched smaller to show the pearlescence through a little more.

Tomorrow mum and a friend are coming round for a crafty day so I'm hoping that I'll manage to get a few of the spare gogogetaway class kits done that I bought.

Happy Crafting!

~ I'm back in blogging land! ~

Well... Hello there for anyone out there who still peeks at my blog hoping for an update! Well here we go... the last few months have been absolutely chaotic with lots of packing and unpacking happening. But unfortunately NO crafting being done what so ever!

Well hopefully things are about to change!

I am now subscribing to Scrapagogo's create monthly kit in abit to 1. not spend as much on crafting each month and 2. have co-ordinating stash easily at my fingertips to try and encourage me to do more scrapping.

Last weekend I attended my very first scrapbooking retreat. I went along to Scrapagogo's Gogogetaway. I must say I had an amazing time! and would recommend it to anyone!

I'll blog a house update and about all my getaway antics.

Happy Crafting!
