A Walk on the Dark Side....

Hello lovely bloggers,

Sorry I've been a bit MIA lately, I've just been really busy with 'life'... lol.  What, with school hols, my mum and dad visiting (and the obligatory spring clean that goes along with that!!) .... not to mention the new 'fighting fit' focus since starting the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Challenge (I've lost 4.7kg in a week and a half!!)... all creativity has taken a little bit of a back seat unfortunately!  Dont' worry, plenty of new ideas are bubbling away in those deep, dark recesses.  :)

I did however, manage to squeeze this little guy in for the new Colour Room palette this week.  A little dark and moody for me I know, but the 'b' side of this Kaiser paper just spoke to me.... hehehe!  I was really inspired by how the one red chair in the inspo pic this week really dominates the room too, so I used this technique to draw the eye to my photo, which would have otherwise been a bit lost in the chaos!  I'm also hoping that this old pic of my little guy napping lightens the mood a little too.  :))


Ok, back to my visitors... more are due to arrive any minute for lunch!!

Promise to be back soon to do some visiting.  I'm starting to suffer from withdrawals... :))

I love that paper. I actually used the other side for a LO so I had to buy another sheet so I can use this side at some stage. Love that touch of red and yes, it draws you to the photo. Fab page.

Ha ha know EXACTLY what you mean about visitors and spring cleaning ... takes a couple of them visits to get our place inhabitable again for us ... ;)) And the little prince in the pic is Mr L himself? anything you create is either gobsmackingly beautiful or totally dead cool, think this one belongs to the latter. Really striking with the heart. Good job on the régime! Toodeli pip! xoxoxo
