I've just had a birthday & a couple of lovely friends had sent me some goodies...I'd been out drinking coffee & socialising on Wednesday, so no scrapping happening - but I DID buy, for the first time, some LARGE sheets of watercolour paper...to the right is me trying out some Heidi S mists....sorry there's no 'action' going down....!!!!!

  10. Hi Lizzy! Happy Birthday!! So sorry I missed it!!! I have had a mad scrapping fortnight & have had my head down in my studio for the most part. Lots achieved but lots missed too!! Hope you had one fabulous day & enjoyed life by the seaside with your DH & friends. Looks like a beautiful place to live. I too live by the seaside but it is very urban & very busy & not even safe to walk so quite a different buzz altogether I should imagine! Well you may not work in an office but you do work very hard on your scrapbooking and all the media promotion that goes alongside being part of design teams & are very conscientious with your community spirit in the scrapping community, which I value greatly, only sadly have now become for the most part too busy to contribute a heap to. I ease my conscience with SATW that is a big undertaking! I always love these lists of Q & A's as I love reading & learning about others. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Congrats to all of the wonderful winners - that is so nice of you, Lizzy!!! And I also want to wish you a very happy belated birthday, too! It was fun learning more about your here. I pretty much hate ironing, too, and always wanted to be a stewardess when I was a girl - it seemed so glamorous!!!
