Lustful thoughts...

...anyone who knows me knows how lustful I am, ha ha! But since this is a family blog I had to scrap something suitable for a general audience for the Scrap West blog, the theme this week being "Seven deadly sins - pick one"... Just one?

From the day I saw Lisa Browns Scraproom i was in LUST! I didn't envy her as all Scrapbookers root for each other, I really lusted after a room like hers, its just so neat and tidy, loads of light, really well organised and in RED! I contacted Lisa to make sure it was ok to use photos of her Scraproom, which she kindly gave me permission to use (good thing as the LO was done already, ha ha!), she also informed me this was her "old" scraproom - i forgot to ask what she did with it... I have images of it sitting on the trash heap of unwanted scrap spaces (OMG! the horror). Anyways, thanks Lisa... one day, when i win the lotto or find my sugar daddy, I'm going to have a scrap space like yours (even if its only like that for 5 mins)

This weeks class in Bad Girls was texture and dimension. It was really unusual to design a page with these two aspects in mind, rather than letting the page evolve. It took 2 days for me to decide on the final look and when I glued the flowers down, it looked exactly the same as my first choice.....The photo of Shona was tken first thing saturday, you can see she is a morning person :) The papers are from Crafteire, its the new Cherry Arte collection called Kitty Lou - the ones Amber Jane named!!!! Love them all, just so beautiful:)
I don't think I mentioned my new motto.. "Just Do It".. I have a habbit of thinking things through, thinking of every outcome in every situation, so when I was asked to go on a blind date recently I spent 3 days making up my mind whether or not I would, then I spent about a week thinking about why I think so much...... So eventually when I did make up my mind I also decided that I needed a motto, hence "Just Do It". So now when I find myself thinking a bit too long about a decision I just remind myself to "Just Do It"..... then 3 days later I do it!

Wow, love your texture and dimension LO, Eva. Different to your usual style but classy as ever. (Don't know how long you've had your "new" banner, but I like it too :-)
