Be Happy, be Bright, be YOU!

So you'd think with a broken foot, a spending freeze until I've completed 100 pages and a fun new kit to play with (see previous post), I would have spent a lot of time in the craft room in the last 3 weeks . . .
well I kind of did, but most of it was spent in assembling flat packs and rearranging things, getting my new look craft room ready!

I'm hoping to do a room tour video, but there's a bit more fine tuning and another trip to Ikea to do first!  (I'm pretty sure Murphy's Law states that the further away you live from your local Ikea, the more likely you are to make mistakes and buy the wrong stuff! Luckily there's a new Ikea in Canberra, and while this is certainly not our closest store, it is only a couple of suburbs away from my mother-in-law, who we visit multiple times a year.)

Anyway, I finally broke my new craft desk in with the current challenge from Scrapbooking Top 50, to use the quote "be happy, be bright, be you"

 The words "happy" and "bright" were both in the "Free Spirit" embellishment pack, making this challenge the perfect first choice to break open my kit.

As you can probably tell, I had a lot of fun with the stamping on this page! It took a bit of experimenting working out what colours to use with the Altenew layered stamps, but I'm glad I made the effort.

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully I'll be back soon.
