Smashing Mr Darcy

Hello All,

I know its been an absolute age, since I have posted, life working at home with a 7 month old baby is just manic, I am getting a little time to craft now and again, I just never seem to have time to photograph it and put it here, I do keep popping in and out of blogland when I have the odd 10 mins or so just to see how you are all getting on.

At the moment I am definitely loving the art journal thing ... I have just ordered 3 books off Amazon, and I am desperately waiting for them to arrive!! If I do get time to craft that is what I am picking up first, although I really need to make some cards, I always keep a little stash so I have some cards and they are fast running out!! Our local craft shop is holding an art journal class once a month, it is just fab, Hubby takes the baby and I get a few uninterrupted hours to play with inks and things and just get messy!!!

Last time I was at the craft shop this K&Co smash book fell into my basket!! This is my first attempt at a smash page! I hope you like it!! I have used the fabulous " What the librarian reads" image from Saturated Canary .... I have altered the titles of the books in seriff to reflect my Pride and Prejudice obsession ( many of you who have been following my blog for a while will be very aware of that!! ) - ( Krista, I hope it was ok to make the alteration)

I have visited Lyme park the home of Pemberly on a few occasions, a must for any P&P fan!! I was there when they had a display of costumes that were used in the Colin Firth adaptation .... yes I have actually touched the coat that Colin Firth wore!! (swoon!!) You were not supposed to, but it was just too hard to resist!! - All the leaflets have been very lovingly preserved in my best copy of P&P ( yes I have many copies) - A hard back copy with Colin Firths picture on the front!! ...... last night I took the very brave step of cutting into those treasured leaflets to make my page!! ..... Think I am glad I did, now the memories preserved in a lovely book that will have more chance of being looked at!! ........ Now for some strange reason I am really feeling the need to read P&P once again!!!!

Love to all, do think of you all often, and hope to pop round and visit you all soon!
