Good Morning you beautiful people, it's Monday the 3rd September, shall I say that again 3rd of September, we are into the 9th month of the year, in 10 days time I'm not going to be managing very well as I reach the big 4 - 0h dear do I really? I'm trying to psyche myself up for it but it's not working (if I'm honest).
And it's two days before said 11 year old commences secondary school, with two bus journeys to get to said school (and a change in the bus station). Life as we know it is going to change forever (gulp).
So I thought before I head out back to work this morning after an almost two weeks break (and I'm sooooooooo not ready for going back to work). That I would pop a quick post together so that I remember that I like crafting and that I have wonderfully bloggy friends and to not make this day a day of work work and a bit more work (but it's likely to be just that).
So without further ado this is a double page layout I created from some photos taken last Summer. Our local town has been extremely run down for many years, it never really recovered after the local major shopping centre opened if I'm honest, but a couple of years ago the council paid a company to convert some of the derelict areas and shops into giant pieces of artwork, and me and said 11 year old had a wander around town with a camera to have a proper look at them. When I got home I used 3" squares to create these two pages, 3" squares to create pages like this are great if you have ever bought those 6 x 6 packs, because you can convert them into full 12 x 12 layouts without having the cost of the bigger packs!
