Priorities, People!


I put this page together to record our time at Camp Disco.  Not its real name, but as the music started at 8:00 in the morning - just in time for morning exercises - and played until gone midnight, it was hard not to spend a lot of time dancing.  Dancing is ably demonstrated by yours truly in the picture below.


The journalling for this page tells of our camp in Armenia and reads:

Camp was a constant disco as they'd managed to hook up a sound system with giant speakers and songs were fired up at all hours.  There was also a little docking station where you could charge a mobile.  It was nailed to a tree and protected by a plastic bag.  All this and yet no shower or toilet?  Seriously?  Priorities people!!!!


I hauled out the ole' confetti punch for this one and added paint splatters and mist for good measure.  I'm also loving the wooden embellishments at the moment.  They have a beautiful natural look that's delicate without being too fussy.  Delicious.


A few paint lines in the background and the camera to tie the page in with the rest of the Armenia album.  Whacked a bit of stitching around the edge of the journalling for good measure and layered it up with vellum.  Vellum seems to be having a bit of a comeback and I'd quite like to have a bit more of a play around with it. We'll see what I can get my mittens on.

Back to school is manic as usual.  None of my students were looking forward to snuggling up and watching the Great British Bake Off tonight.  But it was exactly what I needed :D

P.S. I have hidden a biscuit tin in my new office.  Every office should have a biscuit tin.  I'm now waiting for an appropriate moment to smuggle in the teapot with accompanying tea cosy.

  10. Aahh camp and toilets, which reminds me of something to tell one Sunday.......
    I have loads of vellum (printed and white on white patterns) and am at a loss with what to do with it. If you mail me your address I could send you some to play with.
