Last post I mentioned my new Ikea pop up bin- and the hope that it would make me a tidy scrapper. Well guess what? It doesn't! I get in such a mess when I scrap. I pull out bits of paper, and leave the unchosen pieces on the floor. I pull out boxes of embellishments, and they end up spread all around. I put things aside to use on my pages, then can't find them when it comes to sticking them on. Yesterday I did one LO and my room looked like it had been hit by a cyclone. I scrap in my kitchen/dining/family room, so usually use my dining table to scrap on (mainly because I can't fine my scrap desk under all my bits and pieces). So yesterday I was scrapping, and doing the laundry at the same time. My folded washing ended up on my sofa, and my dining room chairs because the table was covered in paper, glue, ribbons -you name it! The whole room ended up looking like a disaster zone. sometimes I wonder how my family put up with me. Anyway, it was all worthwhile because I ended up making the Round and Round the Garden LO, and I love it. It is the first time I have really consciously 'designed' a LO. usually I put things on a page, move them around, play a bit then stick bits down. But this LO was for Badgirls, and the challenge was to do a LO using a particular design element, and then to write about how the design works. So it required planning and thinking.
