Lost In Fiction

I've been banging on about this for a while, but I have LOVED rediscovering reading this summer. I've always loved books but during term time that tends to get diminished to a few minutes before bed. This summer I have indulged, truly and properly and consumed copious cups of the good brew. And I have particularly revelled in Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody books, so big thanks to her!
In other news, I also scrapped the first pictures taken with my new lens. Yay!

I'm really looking forward to Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day class - I've never done it before but I'm going to do it at 12x12. I don't really get on with anything else as I love the space too much! There should be lots to scrap: back at school with my own form for the first time, moving to my own flat for the first time, Last Night of the Proms, starting as a Guide Leader...

What I've noticed is that I usually blog about things after I've scrapped them and lately I've found that I like what I write here better than what I write on my pages. This is silly. So I think I'm going to make an effort to blog as I go and then use that to inspire my journalling instead of the other way around. It's certainly worth a try.

P.S. I made cupcakes yesterday - more on that another time as this weekend is Party Weekend!

  2. Love this, the background paper is perfect :-)

    I tend to mix up whether I blog first or scrap first. I guess it depends how the inspiration strikes. Often if it's the former I find myself scrapping with basically just a title because the journaling's on my blog - not ideal, I need to sort out what I'm doing there!!
