Out of hibernation

My Eisteddfod entries are now all done, labelled and in the car ready to give to Astra tomorrow. Phew, I can do some of my job list now. Here's today's LOAD layout using photos taken in 2005 and 2010 at Suasmarez Park.

Still quilting away

But have taken time out to do a page for LOAD today. The end of both is in sight!! This is also a DYL assignment for Real World Colour. Another sheet of Rouge de Garance paper which needs little adornment.

Back from Guernsey

Got back last night and almost forgot to finish my Layout a Day, so did some early morning scrapbooking. This is today's layout - day 21 and week 8 assignment 1 from Design Your Life. These are photos of our trip to Guernsey with an old sticker strip, some Scenic Route alpha stickers and a LYB journalling block trimmed down.

Still working on my Eisteddfod entries so no time to upload all the other LOAD layouts atm. Next week I'll share them.

LOAD day 16

I know you're wondering where days 11 to 15 went, but they are done but I haven't had time to take a good photo of them, so you'll have to be satisfied with just one layout. Cribbed almost entirely from Lisa Day's blog. I definitely need more practise with glimmer mists. Especially as I forgot not to shake it and the nozzle gunked up.

Days 8 & 9

Another Design Your Life layout (double). I like the simplicity of this design. I picked the yellow from three of the photos to bring it out, with my scallop punch and some kraft cardstock and I was done.

LOAD catch up

It's Day 4 already and I'm just starting to shake off my cold. Here's the layouts I've done from the Design Your Life course which also satisfy my LOAD commitment.

You've got to love those Making Memories journalling blocks in every colour!! Add in some Bazzill Swiss Dot and some older basic Grey paper. This is week 4 assignment 2 for DYL.

Love my Fiskars edge punches.

Some more of those Rouge de Garance papers I won a few years ago. Only two full sheets left now. Added a journlling block from the DYL class and some staples in a triangle and I'm done.

I'm trying to do the DYL class and the LOAD challenge at the same time as completing three projects for the Eisteddfod. The pieces have to be handed in by the end of February. I have five pieces to enter for our group, Chez Soi. The macrame necklace and jelly roll quilt have been finished for months, but I now have a machine embroidered wallhanging, a cute rabbit wallhanging and a king size quilt to finish. I'm determined to finish the machine embroidery before Wednesday so I can sew on the binding next Wednesday at our quilting group.

LOAD version 2.10

Layout a Day (LOAD) is back. I finished this old layout which only needed some journalling. I hadn't received any of the LOAD e-mails so once that was sorted I uploaded my first layout. Reading the discussions on the LOAD flickr board, there was also a layout a Day challenge in October, not sure how that one passed me by.

Still have a head full of cold and also intermittent earache. That has affected my enthusiasm to get things done, so finishing old layouts may be all i achieve in the next few days to keep up with the LOAD challenge. I can also fall back on my Design Your Life assignments. I still haven't finished one Week 2 assignment which probably won't ever happen, so I now need to move on to week 5 as week 6 starts Thursday.
