Twilight Addicts Weekly Challenge

This week on UKS it is the turn of the Twilight Addicts to set the weekly challenge. For the first 10 points we asked people to use this sketch
10 points would also be given for using a group of photos, and the last 10 points would be given for drawing inspiration from a favourite book. This is my example LO
I drew inspiration from the Shopaholic Series of books by Sophie Kinsella which I LOVE! In these Becky Bloomwood loves the finer,  more expensive things in life. I also like these but I'm more restrained with my spending, mainly cos we have no money, but I was lucky enough to receive some Chanel Perfume for Christmas from Ian (after much nagging lol). The journalling is a Coco Chanel quote: "A woman should be two things classy & fabulous".

Where did January go?

Where did January go? Seriously looks as though I becoming a once a month blogger which is not good, must try harder! After New Year I got full time hours again as my boss is on maternity leave, baby Sofia was born on New Years Day so work has been hectic meaning when I get home I cant really be bothered to do alot! On the plus side it also means I'm invited to go to the trade shows with them, I went to my first one on Sunday and even though it was a busy day it was fun buying stock for Autumn/Winter 2012 (mad I know)
Anyway back to business! As it is February 1st it means the big Sketch & Scrap reveal...oohhh!! This months sketch was chosen by the lovely Heather
I always say its not offically Christmas until the famous Coca Cola advert with the trucks is on the telly, only then can I get stupidly excited! Imagine how the big kid in me felt when one of the trucks took a detour via Morrison's before Christmas! Needless to say I had to take some photos for a future LO....

I'm going to another show on Sunday, but I promise I have managed to do some more scrapping for an up and coming challenge on UKS, all will be revealed soon! x
