Me on Monday

Is it really Monday again ? Where did last week go ?
It was a frantic -  hair washing, packing totes and mini case, check dog food situation Friday for me last week. I haven't been doing as much scrapbooking as I'd like lately as I've been really busy  with making cards so it was lovely to spend the weekend 'licking and sticking' as himself likes to call it..

I spent a lovely weekend with like minded friends crafting away - eating breakfast lunch and dinner - a real unusual thing for me but lovely and generally having fun... a tiny bit marred by the fact that the 'check tyre pressure 'light flashed red at me on the journey ( something that has happened a couple of times) and instead of me thinking oh it's  extra sensitive and oh it doesn't matter too much kind of thing - there has actually been a nail in the tyre both times .... so I kept checking the tyre over the weekend in the car park and luckily all was well when it was time to go home...

There were lots of classes and I managed to finish all but two of them.. maybe they will be ready for me to show you next Monday ( setting myself a challenge now !)

There was a mix of techniques in the classes including making tassels, stamping layered perfume bottles and some fussy cutting of flowers together with embellishing polaroid frames.
I managed to get hold of some of Shimelle's  Christmas range together with some of her thickers in the shop .-so I made a layout using a mix of Shimelle's and some My Minds Eye papers. I love the cute little envelope and the presents.
It was a returning home late Sunday afternoon feeling shattered but happy - curling up on the sofa with the dogs and watching Downton Abbey kind of day yesterday.
So my Monday today is back to working and thinking about what to have for dinner .
I hope your Monday is going well. I'm joining in again with the lovely Sian and giving her and the other Me on Monday people a big wave

That sounds like an excellent weekend. I've never been to a crafty weekend and the two I've read about on my blog travels today both make it sound like a very good idea. You got lots of lovely pages done!

It's lovely to be waving at you again this Monday Denise. Have a great week!

The layouts are lovely - it looks like you learnt some interesting techniques too. I have to admit to ignoring warning lights - although when the entire dash display disappeared the other week (it is all digital) I did panic. Have a lovely week x

Lovely layouts, you certainly had a busy weekend! I hate it when lights appear on the car dashboard, pleased to hear you got home safe and sound without having to change tyres on the A10!

Those pages are great - love the wreath one of you and himself, and that Christmas page is so charming.
