This post might be some kind of record for me. I'm not sure I've ever had four pages ready to show all at the same time before. But that's the power of a beautiful kit. I made every one from the Gossamer Blue June selections.
As soon as I saw that pretty background paper I decided I had to do a gardening page. Problem: the only thing I found to say about gardening is that I'm not very good at it. No problem: our kind of "Gardening Leave" means we give ourselves permission to forget about the results. We plant, we wait, and if it doesn't work, we plant again.
Lots of Dear Lizzy party pieces? I knew I had to go back and do another birthday page. If I used "ETC"
as a title, I could add in extra details, the bits of the story I hadn't written about already. It was a chance to use the big chipboard letters in the main kit: now I'm thinking it's an easy way to add an extra page anywhere. Call it Whatever Etc, add the random things you want to remember, and then you can call it done.
..a page dictated by that gold alphabet - made for a Harry Potter page! - and that orange map paper. And then, when I kept looking, I found stars and little hearts to add too..
Finally: flamingos (or flamingoes? I googled. It can be whichever you like) . I couldn't stop without using a flamingo ( now there's a phrase to conjure with..); so I made a page about my first visit to a Safari Park. It wasn't exactly yesterday, you understand, so I went a little bit retro..
These are the pages which appeared on the Gossamer Blue blog last week. I enjoyed making every single one, not least because I'm looking at lots of leftovers and thinking what next? That Fathers Day add on needs investigating more thoroughly before the month is out!
