When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Happy Back To The Future Day! 

Marty McFly arrived today from 1985 in the 2nd film if you didn't know those Back to The Future films?! No, oh okay I'll carry on with my desk then! Visit The Stamping Ground to join in and find deskers from all around the world! 

 Right side - pens and my colouring journal with my latest colour combos.
 Window side - NEW stash! I bought the gorgeous Simple Stories paper and stickers. There's also my latest book folding art project.
Look some papers are foiled!!

Right my daily Q & A journal asks - 

What new word have you learned?

I don't actually know this. I'm someone who reads a lot and am a bit of a geek so will happily look through a dictionary. But I haven't done that lately. 

Take care Zo xx

Hi Zoe....I've been learning new words but as they are the ones my builders use I wont be repeating them ;-) Hope you're having a good week.

Oh I've got a good new word for you....


It means beautifully formed buttocks!!!!!! True :-)

I love those papers - a bit of foiling always makes things better in my opinion.
We'll miss you at the Crop...I bet Keagan's getting excited now :-)
Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

Hi there Zo! How lovely to see you blogging again and also thank you so much for hopping in and leaving such sweet comments! As always, you've been doing some wonderful colouring and I do love the daily Q & A :)

Trust Jan!!!! There's nothing you can say to that is there. I'll try that one on my hubby tonight. He, like you, Zoe, will be telling me all night it's Back To The Future Day. He could recite all the films word for word. Now there's a word for you....Sad!!! No only kidding. I love him dearly really, but he is obsessed with watching films over and over again. I wonder if there's a word for that???
Thanks for popping by earlier.

Happy WOYWW. Thanks for your earlier comment on my blog. I ended up having to make an envie for that card, as did not have one to fit - and then ran out of time to get the pressies wrapped and the box ready for the post. Will be up early tomorrow and get it all done then. I love your colouring sample book. Foiled papers - nothing better! Ali x #37

Hi Zoe, happy Back to the Future day. I am sitting here with my lap top, visiting the desks and watching Back to the Future including mad Keith Lemmon. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 24

Seeing your comment about foiled papers reminded me of the machine I used to demonstrate recently which was fabulous for doing just that. Now wondering if I should have got one?
I just love those heads/faces on your first photograph - I wish I could master that colouring like you do - love the coloured hair on those cute faces.
Hugs, Neet 1 - thanks for visiting me earlier xx

I love learning new words. I try to incorporate at least two new words in each of my books. Sometimes a new word is all I need to get a scene going when I'm stuck. Lots of pretty new papers. I love Simple Stories. They are great additions to my dayplanner pages. Creative Blessings! Kelly #47

Oh, such lovely new goodies to play with! I love the colors!
I'm so pleased that you decided to get yourself a journaling bible.
It's going to look awesome!
Happy WOYWW!
