This weekend I had the house to myself and, apart from going out for lunch on Saturday, very little planned except of course a great deal of scrapping...or so I thought. It seems my mojo went away for the weekend too! I did these two layouts but they were a bit too much like hard work and I had to keep wandering off and coming back to them.

First there was this one of my nephew, using the March gogo kit. The photo is photoshopped!! He isn't really green!
Then this one. I had the idea for this stamped background before and used it on a small scale for the cover of a book but I had a big sheet of thick acetate so I thought why not save myself £3 and make my own transparent background. I then went all vintage and used this photo of Mum looking scarily like me! I thought the roses from AC Dear Lizzy went really well, especially as Mum loves roses.
I used up some odd embellishments that I had lying around left over from kits last year.
And here is a close up of the stamped background, excuse the wooden blind behind, I am experimenting with photographing my work!
I went to Paperchase on Saturday and picked up these, how cute???
So this week I am looking forward to the Scrapbook Inspirations Ideas Book coming out on Wednesday, I have an hour free inbetween dropping Mum at School and seeing my Reflexologist so I plan to go to Sainsburys to buy it and into Costa to start reading it.
I am also hoping that this will be the week the new October Afternoon launches reach our shores, I am desperate to get my hands on it before we go away on Friday, I already have lots of ideas for it.
Happy Monday xx

I can't wait for the new October Afternoon ranges to come out either, and I've pre-ordered Scrapbook Inspirations mag too. :)
Hope your mojo comes back.
