You've probably got one too, lurking quietly and well hidden from view. Rarely a thing of beauty or a joy forever, they're not usually by the front door where the visitors come in. My grandmother used to call hers The Glory Hole (which Grandad referred to, with a surreptitious wink behind her back, as The Gory Hole). But for us, bereft of attic, cellar or garage, ours is out of sight - and usually out of mind too. However, a hint of a thaw and a blink of sunlight this morning encouraged me to don my wellies and head off to peep round the ramshackle door into ours. Now, I do love a challenge, especially if it's one of Paula Gilarde's lovely graphic ideas over at live.scrap.repeat, and I wondered if I could interpret her Inspiration Challenge 89 on the iPad ...

Next week, we'll look at at all the things you can do with Shapes in Keynote.

Hoping you've enjoyed a bit of a break, if there were Easter celebrations your way, and are easing gently into a new and warmer (or cooler, if you need it!) week ahead. Having made an initial foray, I am determined to set off for More Exciting Adventures In The Lean-To. Well, possibly. If the temperature rises. And the sun shines again ... :).
