A Busy Day.... crafty terms yesterday. I made a good few cards, helped Harry and Katie make a birthday card for their Dad, and had a go, for the first time at using the sketch from this site.

A while back i wouldn't have used sketches, i think i would have seen them as a bit of a cheat, but now they help me to concentrate my mind on the little details on a LO. If i had spent lots of time faffing about wondering where to put the bits of paper, photo, journalling etc, it would have given me less time to add the little bits i like about this LO, the Gromlets, stitching, bling and composing the journalling (contrary to popular belief even short, simple journalling does take a little bit of thinking about!)

So this page is about the gift sent to me by Julia earlier this week, and the friends online i know, but have never met. As i spend at least half an hour most days online, an important page for my Book of Me. I used the My Minds Eye papers i bought in Stampeezee (see, i told you i would keep them for my own Scrapbook!), WRMK large gromlets, Stampin Up ink (Coral cameo?) embroidery thread, AC Thickers and white pen, Anitas gems (still lovin' these!) and a Making Memories tag.. thanks Julia!

Inspiration hits - it's lovely Ann, am blushing at being mentioned on one of your LOs..what a honour. I love the whole thing - premise,thoughts and execution and I totally get why you saved the papers for your BoM!!
