Muse #15

Well hello bloggers!

It's been a little while since I posted - not surprising really, since we've just come back from a family holiday to San Francisco and Canada. It really was the trip of a lifetime, especially the couple of days we spent at Disneyland - I'm not sure who had most fun, us or the kids! Now I'm just wondering how I'm going to have time to scrapbook the photos...all 2000 of them.....

I'm letting myself get back into crafty mode gently this week so what better way to do it then getting inspired by this week's Muse challenge with a fab card from Jen Mitchell:

Isn't it gorgeous? I have to admit I think I've been a little 'too inspired' by it as my version is a little too similar for my liking:

Pretty obvious what I've been inspired by isn't it?  Erm, all of it perhaps? I used a strip of washi tape on the panel which came from Michaels. Oh dear. What's a girl to do when a HUGE craft store is a 10 minute walk from where she's staying in SFO? Well go in and spend money of course. Again. And again. And yet again. Those pesky 40% coupons got me every time!

Well, I'm feeling the mojo now so I'm off to do a couple more things and have a look at the gallery. Thanks for stopping by,
