Stash diet!

Yup, I've decided that I have too much stash and am putting myself on a diet! I intend not to buy anything else until I have completed 35 layouts, although I will still be getting my monthly kits.
I made a start by doing two more layouts using pencil lines sketches number 57 and number 60. Here they are.

I have just counted up, and it turns out that so far in 2007 I've done 35 layouts exactly, which means I'm going to have to get my scrapping butt in gear if I ever want to buy anything again!

{Rough, Smooth and Bristles}

This week's prompts are textures - so here are rough, smooth and bristles :)

This is what is wet in my space today - the garden!
I tried so hard to get this really sharp, but there was quite a breeze and this was the best i could do. still, i just love the colour, it looks like velvet!

I've been in a really creative mood over the last few days, and have done more scrapping than in the last few months! I have always loved using sketches, and I've been using the page maps site loads recently - these three LOs all use sketches from here - they are a great way to jump start a LO. Take a look at Page Maps.

Next, my self portrait for this week - I missed last weeks, but I'm hoping to start doing this regularly, I'd love to make up a book of them after I've got a few.

And here is my "show off"! This was taken years ago, and was the photo that got me thinking about photography really. It was a complete stroke of luck, but I love the effect of the clouds, and the semi silhouette.

New Pages

Firstly, Pencil Lines sketch #59, using the yummy love elsie betty collection.

Secondly, finally working my was through our holiday photos from this year - there are so many it's a daunting task!

Thirdly, this was done for the Scraproom november newsletter, as part of the scraplift challenge - the glitter seriously went everywhere! If anyone has any tips for containing glitter they would be much appreciated!

{Snip and Collect}

These prompt seem to be getting harder, I really struggled to be original at all with "snip" so a photo of my herb garden seemed to be the best I could do! "Collect" was a bit easier - I seem to collect these little bits of plastic like they are going out of fashion, and they also allow me to collect points - ooh, clever!

Here is my 'almost' - my engagement ring - almost our wedding day, almost a wife. Well, in 222 and 45 minutes lol! I guess really thats quite a long time, but when we got engaged it was over 1000 days so it feels like it's almost here. Most of the big things are sorted, the honeymoon is booked, it's just small details to attend to now - the fun part! :)

{Show off Sunday!}

Sunday's prompt is to show off a favourite photo, I love this idea!
Here are a couple of my favouites from a trip to the yorkshire sculpture park earlier in the year - I couldn't pick just one! These were actually taken as part of Cheryl's Painting with Light photography course. So, my top 3 pics from the day are these:

{A rainbow!}

Finally got my camera out again today, I've really missed taking photos - I need to get back into the habit!

I'm catching up a little with herspace myspace, starting with the rainbow!
So here is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and pink. Except, I've just realised I missed out yellow whoops!

Also here are a couple of recent layouts that haven't made it on here yet!
