Well, week one is down and I'm having a lovely break from school. On Thursday, I spent the day meandering around Shoreditch with a friend and we found some amazing little shops and boutiques. There was a vintage clothes shop slash cafe with free sample brownies on the counter that looked straight out of the fifties. And the best find of the day looked nothing from the outside but as we found it's description of itself amusing - antique prestigious chimney pieces - we had a nosey inside. It was absolutely incredible. More like a museum than anything and full of incredibly beautiful fireplaces and other accoutrements for the stately home. I was like getting lost in a beautful mansion and it was so atmospheric as the building turned out to be a converted church so it was huge. It was called Westland London and I recommend a visit.
Got lots of photos of the day and will scrap them with all due haste I hope. And today is the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally!!!! I've been looking forward to this for ages. It;s definitely time for new stash and my Mum has come down so we can go together. Then Doctor Who this evening. What more could a girl want?
This LO was my first proper attempt at a multi-photo layout using the 8-to-a-sheet setting on my printer. I was worried they'd be too tiny to use but actually they were perfect and I used all eight! I also used loads of scraps and odds-and-ends and I'm really pleased with the result. It's really true to my style which I think I'm really starting to develop.
