The Red Coat Saga
I am on fire this week!! 12pm and I have already done a page - almost unheard of. I think I may be getting faster at this lark. To be fair its always my lettering that takes me so long as I procrastinate about even getting the letters out (they are so messy and I hate it!) Sometimes I can look at my letter storage for ages before I get the energy to go through them!
Anyhoo this layout is all about Jessicas coat. For 3 years shes had the same winter coat (her nan bought it her and it was v big at the start lol) and it was really looking tatty and she had never looked tidy or smart in it. Trying to get her a new coat was such a trial and she only agreed to this one as we had been around 6 different shops and she was getting fed up. It says on the journaling I bribed her into it - thats a nice santised version for prosperity - I BLACKMAILED her into it as in "If you don't say yes to this coat, I will drag you around every shop in Bristol until you choose one!"
Today I got a surprise package delivered, as part of my prize from SBM I was told I was getting a daylight lamp, and today it arrived (totally forgotten about it!) and its pretty cool. The light where I scrap is rubbish and even with a fair bit of natural light today I tried it out and it was great, so looking forward to using it more! Nice bit of kit actually!
