I wasn't, but I am now....

In the last six to eight weeks I am guilty of doing no scrapping at all.  Not even the tiniest bit since my last crop which always at the start of the month and we skip August.  Hmmm, Art Journaling has seriously taken over my crafty time, my me time.  It's generally all I think about and I feel cheated if I don't at least get a doodle in on a page.  This is the reason, along with not getting any further than day six last year, I had decided some time ago that I wasn't going to take part in this years Learn Something New.  

That was until I got today's prompt.  It's all changed now.  When I read the prompt I loved Shimelle's idea of using envelopes, and guess who has a box of hundreds, all leftovers from my old card making days. So, i whipped out 31 of them and the back of an old notebook.  Had a quick rummage through last months scrapagogo kit and knocked this together....... 


I will confess part of me wasn't going to join in because i couldn't be bothered to make or prepare a book for it but this took me a grand 15 minutes to put together.  I know I've copied, or should that be lifted, the idea for the book from Shimelle but I sure she wouldn't mind at all, and it's an idea I think I'll use again after all I do have at least 169 envelopes left!  All that remains to be seen is if I can get past day six this year.  Wish me luck!!
