But back to reality with work and scrapping.
As mentioned in my previous post, I completed another layout using my Counterfeit Kit some days ago but hadn't noticed that my photo of it was pretty pants! (What is it with the light these days? I thought everything would get easier for photographing my layouts once the days got longer and sunnier, although I think this might say more about my photography skills right now.)
Anyway, I got out there earlier this morning and took another photo so that I can share it with you - it's still not perfect, but it's better.
I've got so many fun fair photos that it's difficult to know what to do with them all. But one or two more of these types of layouts can probably still be made. Crange Kirmes (Kirmes = fun fair in Germany) is a classic tradition in the region where we live. It's quite famous and I know that I have written about it before, especially as Ted and I have gone every summer for the last few years.
I manage a few rides but have noticed in recent years that they hit me harder and harder! I think I'm getting too old for this malarky but Ted is grateful that I do manage some of the stomach tumbling ones!
I wanted to make this a bit lighthearted and whimsical, so I included some glittery clusters and somewhat mismatched products. I think it worked.
Oh, and I did some serious stealing the middle of my papers to make the pretty ones go further!
I want to get the last of the kit used up and posted by the end of the month because May's LOAD is looming now... which is pretty exciting.
This kit has been so much fun to use up and I have created 6 really different layouts - goal reached! Now I just have to run off a couple of simple cards using the leftovers and I will have done everything I wanted to do this month.
I'll be getting ready for LOAD this week. Tidying, sorting, organising, thinking.. can't wait!
