Enjoy the Journey

It's been a gorgeous day here today weatherwise. I started the day with a trip to the hairdressers, followed by a leisurely stroll home via all the craft outlets on the high street :) Bought a few scrapbooking bits and bobs. After lunch and a bit of tidying I had to take DD to the orthodontist in a nearby town, it was nice to be driving home again in daylight rather than pitch black. 
Tomorrow I've to go to Edinburgh for a follow-up appointment at the opticians for my contact lenses. So far I've not had any problems with them (apart from getting them in lol) and they're much better for driving at night than my glasses were. As Hobbycraft is only a few doors away from the optician it would be rude not to visit whilst I'm there!!
Another layout tonight - don't seem to be in the mood for cards this week so I've been messing around in My Memories Suite again.

Papers and elements are all from Raspberry Road's Seventies Styling kit.

Challenges entered:
My Memories - speed scrap
Paper Creations Ink - 1 image, 2 DP 3 embellies
