Boy, that's a lot in one day!

I hope you have had a fabulous weekend, it was a busy one...first me and hubby got up at a ridiculous time on Saturday to catch the bus to town (I didn't even know they ran that early!)...why?  Well, yes it was a day off...but it was national record store day!!  

A celebration of independent record stores with special releases and live appearances up and down the country (more information can be found here) we were about 60 odd in the queue (some got there at 3am!!!!) but still managed to get some fab vinyl, we followed this by a vintage fair, we both love 40's and 50's music and style and I managed to bag myself some new headscarfs (you can never have enough of least that's what I told my hubby when he saw I bought another 3!!) and a lovely dress....cant wait for nice weather to wear it.

The day was finished off with a trip to our favourite restaurant for a lovely meal...a grand day out.

Saturday helped me forget all the woes of the past few weeks (you know, we all get them, work sucks, illness, yadda, yadda, yadda...) so I made this page.  "When it all gets too much...spread your wings and fly".

I coloured the background with DI using stencils, stamps and bottle lids to mark the page, adding a bit of vintage page and the bottom to stand the figure on.  I cut her head off (yikes!!) and put it on an angle to give her a contemplative look.  

I love journals and tags as they are a great way to try new techniques and cost very little (and dont take up too much room) so I am off to play a bit more!!

Hope you all had a fab weekend too,
