52Q ~ Q14 - Journalling and LO

 Q14 - What is the last good book I read? 

 I've been a fan of chick lits ever since I can remember. 
 I love books by Zoe Barnes, Jane Green and Freya North especially. 

 Since moving to my flat though, reading has taken a back seat. Recently, 
 I decided that I would try and read a chapter of a book each night to see 
 if it would help me sleep better. But deciding what book to read was so hard. 
 I once had an obsession with buying books, so have several I haven't yet read. 

 Eventually, I picked up Freya North's Pillow Talk. I was meant to be reading 
 one chapter per night, but found myself unable to put the book down so soon 
 and one chapter soon became two. It was only when I was so tired and unable 
 to hold the book, that I turned off the light. Now I'm hoping (and will) buy her 
 latest book Chances. Wonder how many chapters of that I'll read each night? 

 I've made my LO using Computer Scrapbook's Royalty kit

UKS April House Challenge

 This month's House Challenge was to use the sketch and alter something to use on our LO. 
 Thinking cap went on and in the end, I made a flower shape into a transparency before 
 colouring it in deep red and giving it white spots. Then I decided to make it completely 
 white and somehow, I got touches of red where the white spots had been. I quite liked that 
 effect, so went with it. Unusually for me with these sketches, I didn't even rotate or flip it! 

 The rest of the LO was done using Computer Scrapbook's Cinnamon kit 
 with the photo altered in Photofunia
