Try this...


OK, here's another look. I was missing the black background and so I've increased the point size and changed the colours again. Try it on for a coupla days. I love the custard colour, but it made the page look empty, cavernous, uninspiring. Or maybe it is! There's a lot of sites that offer fantastic 'decorated' blog templates and the reason I don't use one is because I want space on the page..which I know, is a total contradiction of my reason for not liking the custard. But I can't help it! What you won't find here is anything approaching customising that has to be done other than by templates or downloads - I'm not up to it, at all! There's a growing propensity towards a chandelier encrusted look....images of baroque style flourishes and chandeliers. Some of them are lovely. Some of them are so over the top they are looking a bit like some Tim Burton-esque funeral parlour. (Heidi Swapp's, for example.) It's only my opinion, share yours with me.

Questions about the SODA page on the last post: - Steph, it's Basic Grey paper; I'd never be bothered to produce a background as lovely as that for one measley LO!! The pink letters are from Craftwork Cards about a century ago, I stamped a bar-code image across them to hide the sticky. The S of soda is a doctored, lower case g...which is why it has the bottle top stuck over the worst bit. The journalling (top right) is done in such a narrow nib pen as to make it illegible, but in real life, it's pretty clear. The bar-code image across the letters and at the bottom of the photo is from a set by Autumn Leaves. They appear on LOTS of my scrapbook pages.
COR! Thanks for looking so closely, didn't expect that!

So..comment away, do. It's fab to read your input. - you must read Love to Doodle's comments on yesterday's post...total logicalising (I know what I mean) of an illogical trait. This is such a sisterhood!
