Well, we went away to the Lake District last weekend.  As might have been expected, we didn't get there until late on Friday evening and then it rained most of Saturday, which meant that the walk in Grizedale forest never actually took place! Of course, we might well have braved the rain if hubbie had brought a coat along, but he actually listened to the weather forecast (you know, that forecast which he is always telling me they never get right!) which said it was going to be lovely and sunny.  Well is was lovely and sunny - but back home, not the Lake District!!!!

This weekend should be fun though.  I am off to Carnarfon for a line dancing weekend.  I've never been on one of these weekends, although I am, sad to say, a keen line dancer, so I am really looking forward to it.  Of course, I will have to take my camera with me, for all those photos of the castle, the sea, and maybe the line dancing, plus my laptop for all the photoshopping I could be doing in the free afternoons!

You may recall that I mentioned a while ago The Studio were having a design contest.  Well, I never got through many rounds, but the final round has just been completed.  If you fancy picking up some free kits, why not go and take a look:


The kits in the final round are really something and well worth downloading :).

As for there Layout Artist contest I entered, I actually made it by the skin of my teeth into the fourth round!  Wonders will never cease!  We were given a really spooky kit to work with, Midnight from Deli Scraps by Min which can be found HERE.  This is what the kit looks like:

and this is what I came up with:

Whilst the kit has some lovely papers and amazing elements, it was totally not my style at all as I never, ever do anything spooky, or Halloween, no ghosts, goblins, witches and stuff  So the dry bones in Ezekiel came to mind and so that's what I went with.  Please take a look at the layout gallery and see what everyone else came up with and it would be really good if you would vote for me ;).

The gallery can be found here and the voting poll is here.  You do have to register in the forum to vote and voting is only until midnight EST tonight.

I;m in the process of designing a kit for The Studio Megakit challenge and so far, I have six papers finished.  I still need to get some elements done and also come up with a name for the kit (which I find the hardest thing to do!) but watch this space as it will be offered as a freebie in the next week or so.

In the meantime, happy scrapping!
