TMTA - Africa

Africa is this weeks theme over on TMTA. I had no related stamps but did have this faulous map one in my travel set. Background is Distress inks, brads, Papermania. Buildings stamp from same travel set.

I have spent the majority of the weekend in bed as the headaches were preventing my eyes focusing. I got plenty of sleep & did manage to scribble ideas for my retreat minibook. I got up for two hours at tea time for a bath & hair wash & did make the book up but it is now sat waiting for more hours in a day to add to it. I'm excited about this project, I don't mind if it takes all of March to complete. It is going to be full of pockets, tags & matchbooks. All made from 3 DL envelopes. I'm using a pack of paper I adore & I hope to share this time next month...or sooner if my head clears!!
At least an ATC this afternoon eases me back into crafting.
