Not a mission to create...

Above is a little gem of a layout. I loved these pics taken by my bro-in-law Byron and was excited to scrap them. I have always enjoyed using the Mission to Create challenges as they are very specific, yet flexible and they are a good stash buster. The requirements were:-
Deborah- Make a list as part of your journaling
Jocie- Primary colors
Nicole- Use a journalling card
Vanesa- Use a mini calendar
Ania -The following inspiration (a cute postcard)
I was mission successful and used all of them. The different coloured lettering was especially good as I got to use up all of my odd thickers. I am pleased with this layout and it is taking pride of place on my wall in my scrap room.
Long may the sunshine continue. We had been "trapped" in the house and garden today as our mot was pending and we were like a kid on exam day when the phone call came - the good news was that we only had one thing to fix and then it passed - soooo much better than all the issues with the KA! Yesterday we had a mini adventure and walked the six miles to Pool in the blazing sunshine. It was a longer run than I thought and my flip flops weren't the comfiest of foot wear! However it was all worth it as we stopped at a gorgeous little pub called The White Hart. We sat on the terrace soaking up the sun and Arne had a homemade burger and I had a gorgeous stonebaked pizza - yum! Here are some pics we took on route - it was a very good photo day today! Hope you've all had a non-stressful hump day and enjoy your evening. (We are off to Orange Wednesday!)
