I'm a rebel

Well not really but I did do a layout at the crop on saturday for the Punky Scrap Rebel challenge. We had to take inspiration from this;

 and use stamps. So I did:

Wasn't quite sure about it whilst I was doing it as I set out with no concrete plan but now its done I think its okay-ish.

It was my day off yesterday so I decided to do the CSI challenge, having missed the last one, before it changed yet again. I can just about keep up with a monthly challenge but a weekly one is proving a bit too much.
While in Troyes we came across so many delightful sights, not least of all these colourful houses:

You can find the challenge here.

Booby crop 2013

Michele and I went to the Booby Crop, a charity event organised by Leanne Weaver, again this year. we had a great time and I somehow  managed, amid the laughter and the short break to visit the Sincerely Yours craft show, to produce 4, yes 4 layouts. Thanks heavens for challenges. First is the one for Sarah's Cards challenge-Reflections in Reims:

Then i did the one for the 123 challenge which had to be predominantly yellow and have the word 'heart' in it:

next was the one for My Creative Sketches, one I've not done for a while but I like this month's sketch so here it is-Weird Beauty with photos taken in Barbizon:

the last one used the sketch from last months Creative Sketches and again is  of a photo we took when in Barbizon:

These were all photos taken during our 2013 holiday inFrance this year.

The Beatles

So, today I was watching morning TV. Well, I say watching but really I just had the tv on in the background which I always do when home alone. Holly and Philip were broadcasting from Liverpool to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the programme. Well what's a scouser to do when faced with the wonderful backdrop of the Albert Docks? So I sat a while,  looking at the layout I started yesterday for the CSI weekly challenge(-can't keep up with this now I'm back at work. It's challenge 92 tomorrow and I'm only just posting 91)-and was just wondering about a title when, to finish the show, The Overtones started singing The Beatles' All You Need Is Love. Now I love being with my cousin and her sister in law-my cousin in law and relish in our affection for each other. We always have such a good time together and I love being in their company.
So there was my title and as the challenge needed us to journal about something we need on a daily basis it seems quite fitting.
