I Don't Understand????

So, tell me. It's now 11.30pm. I've been tired all day. Since after lunch I've lulled about and have had no energy, but so why at this hour am I wide awake and could carry on playing in my studio all night long???
I just doesn't make sense.
I've pottered all evening in here. I have a new hanging for my fave stamps, so I've sorted that. I've had a general tidy. Listened to music, drank pepsi, eaten some milka, filed my 52 week project to date, made my Sketchy Thursdays DT page for next week and photographed the 5 pages that I've made since Thursday night : ) I'm on a roll at the mo.

Here's one of my new pages that I've made.
I joined in with Julie's challenge blog ' These are a few of my favourite things'.
I took some photos that I love a few weeks ago when I made Red Velvet Cupcakes. I love that red. And seeing as I love baking so much, these were perfect for this.
(click photo to enlarge)



I used Fancy Pants 'Beach Babe' for this page. The colours were perfect and I love this kind of animated feel it's given to the lay out.



By doodling around everything very roughly in black pen, it's helped everything stand out so much better.



It's not only the baking that I enjoy, it's the baking shopping too. I bought myself a little birthday present last week. 3 new baking bowls. They are beautiful, they stack inside one another and are in pastels and so heavy. I love a good weight to my bowls.



The kettle boiled a few minutes ago, so I'm off to have a cuppa with Ade before bed. Our clocks change tonight, so we loose an hour : (
Thankfully we have nothing major planned though tomorrow. Some bananas that have seen greener days, so I'm thinking a banana cake of some sorts, maybe a walk and dinner out. Love easy days : )

Enjoy the rest of your weekend xxx

Easy days are so good Lisa. Enjoy your cuppa with your man. I was just thinking while looking at your layout that I like how it looks like a comic strip..sorta. then you explained the 'animated' part and I thought, yes, that's what I mean. enjoy your weekend.
