Does it have to be new?
When we went to the ATDML retreat the DT were allowed to choose exactly what they wanted to design with and I surprised Jill by choosing some papers from Bella Blvd. These papers were just so me and so fresh and lively looking that in truth I hadn't realised that they were old ranges! Just goes to show how much notice I take of current trends :0)
I was so inspired by the papers that I made 5 layouts, 3 cards and a mini book. So I will show you my favourite couple of layouts today and the rest later in the week.
Birthday Girl (how I wished I had been there on her Birthday but facebook photos and skyping were almost as good).
Not Your Average Girl (I think that just about sums me up!)
I experimented with my new Martha Stewart round the page punches on this one.
So my question is - Does a paper range have to be new to excite you?
Reasons to be cheerful:-
1. Having the fore-site to bring my laptop to work so that I could blog at lunchtime.
2. It's a 4 day weekend.
