My mojo is back! These fab Olivia papers by Basic Grey definitely did the trick. I just love all the different designs. What I realized is that I find it so difficult to open a new pack of papers, stamps, embellishments and ruin them. Do you know what I mean? My heart sinks with every brad or flower I use. I think the problem lies in the fact that I can't pop round to a craft shop so easily as Ihave to go to our sister island, the UK or on an online shopping spree and if I do that I know I will be spending a lot of money on postage, urgh.
The first time I set foot in a brick and mortar craft shop was in the Netherlands called Pipoos, and oh mice, they thought I was plain crazy but I'm sure the salesgirls loved me spending about 100 Euros in one hour. I guess that's what happens when you feel deprived of something. Enough talk and down to business now with my take on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge following Beth's sketch.
