Guest Designer for Little Shop of Sketches

I had the pleasure of being guest designer over on Little Shop of Sketches this week. My dear friend Pearl contacted me early last month to ask if I would return the favour as she had kindly done a GD spot for me on mojoholder. The sketch was fun to work with & I kept my page simple to show off the tranquil photo that I had taken at Xmas while staying with my sister, Tracy.
Here is a close up of my simple cluster of embellishments.

The materials I used are all from my last 3 SC kits.
I have been away from blog land for a while as I am rather tired. I am at the stage where getting out of bed is difficult in a morning and I'm finding myself late getting ready for work. The warmer duvet is partly to blame. I'm only up this early today because I have a train to catch in an hour!
Thankfully I am having a week's holiday from work starting with a long weekend this Saturday, when finger's crossed I am going up to Newcastle to stay with my sister, Tracy. I say finger's crossed as right now she has the flu & as a precaution the doctors have given her the swine flu drugs, Tamiflu. Once I get home I have a day out at Meadowhall shopping and plan to rest. I made a layout just for the hell of it last weekend but so far haven't had the right light for a photo then the day it was perfect, both sets of camera batteries were flat!!! Still they are fully charged & ready for my trip.
3 days & counting!

What a beautiful LO, Paula. I love that white flowery paper on the blue, it's gorgeous. A very calm and peaceful piece of work.
I hope you enjoy your break and know what you mean about the light. It's terrible trying to take good photos now isn't it!!

Such a pretty layout Paula.
I do hope you make it up to Newcastle, it sounds gorgeous. I hope your Sister is better soon.
I too am finding it harder to get up in the morning....I think mine is lack of sleep in the first plave due to Emily being up at all hours and then getting up early in the morning. I wish it was a warmer duvet keeping in bed but when she is up, so am I!
