Daylight Savings

Mostly I don’t like daylight savings. I don’t like change I guess. I resist changing the clocks until the Monday after, sometimes Sunday but never the night before!

So daylight savings is here – it’s almost 7pm and still light outside. My problem with this is that the kids want to go to bed a little later – which means my ‘scrapping’ time starts a little later, and goes a little later. And then it’s hard to get up a little earlier in the morning! I was having a hard enough time getting up in the mornings as it was.

But I just discovered a good thing about daylight saving that I hadn’t considered before. More daylight in the evening means more opportunity to photograph layouts in the daylight. So – given the extended opportunity I was able to photograph my ‘pink’ layout from yesterday:

I spent yesterday at Kiwiscraps for scrap pink. It was fun – a little squishy but fun. (Thanks for squashing over for me Kirsty.) I worked on this one layout most of the day – too much fluffing about and talking I suppose. See the little birdie:

That was a technique that Kirsty showed us how to do. Using that thick melty, embossing powder type stuff – opals maybe? You put lots of layers on though and then stamp into it while it’s still warm to give it that cool texture. Just had to make a bird to use on my layout.

The flowers, by the way, were made with some felt which I wet felted. I demonstrated this technique yesterday and had ladies making a good soapy mess – and some pretty coloured felt squares too. Not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ some found it a little too slimey! (Thanks for being enthusiastic Kelly!)

It was a fun day, anyway – thanks for the ride home Ali! Oooh and speaking of Ali – she won the page of the day comp. with a very cool ‘bugaloo’ page – apparently you gotta be old enough to know what that means. Anyway it was a very cool page and it was neat being able to watch her create.

I’m in sympathy with Mrs Frizz right now. I have a cold and my nose and eyes are running, my head feels stuffed up and just icky. Might just have to go off to bed early…
