WOYWW #375 - Serengeti Evening

Hi Folks, just to say, after nearly 6 weeks of period with only 6 days relief due to medication, the latter seems to have reset my body and things are back to normal at present - phew!

Good news for me but not such good news for crafting as I have been out Geocaching and Pokémon Going.  I got a FTF cache (First To Find) yesterday and managed to fill up my virtual Pokémon bag too!

Looking at my desk, not so good for the ironing either (much larger pile in cupboard awaits my attention, this lot didn't even make it to the cupboard!) nor the recycling reclamation (although there is a potential fairy jar in there).

I did however have a Serengeti Evening Sunday. Dare I mention I fell for yet another magazine and freebie die. I'd already set the SWAP theme of Serengeti but seeing the balloon die made me think this would work.

I've not even published the partners for the SWAP yet so hope my partner doesn't see this.

I made a journal page with all the left over bits and bobs from the card. Can you believe I'd forgotten the delights of stencils and only added that detail after the stickles! Yes I got into a bit of a mess, but hey ho I had a good inky evening.

Well I think I managed a visit and comment to all last week, but unfortunately there were a couple of Google+ participants I was unable to reply to, couldn't even find emails, such a shame.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Morning BJ. Glad your body is settling itself down! Horrid, isn't it? What a great card and pages. The colours are gorgeous. Ironing? Can't remember what that is!! It will still be there another day - unless you have that wonderful invention - an ironing fairy...
Take care. God bless.

I'm so glad things are better for you and you are actually getting out and about - what a relief that must be. I love the Serengeti pages, the silhouettes are stunning against that warm, orangey sky and I love the balloons flying over - very atmospheric.
Hope you have a good week,

So glad your system is reset. After 6 weeks, you must be thrilled to be out geocaching and Pokemoning. Looking at that card on the cover I would not have been tempted in the slightest to buy the magazine. But seeing what you did with it, speaks volumes to me. Both the ATC and Journal page are gorgeous. Blessings for a great WOYWW and terrific week! LisaDV #28

Was tempted by the diecuts but then my subscription magazine came with a balloon stamp so no diecutting for me.
Love the card, super way to use the dies - lots more designs coming methinks.
Have a good week
