Been at it again…



Yes, more scrapping.  Think it may have something to do with a pile of “school” photo’s that have been sitting waiting to be scanned in, and that fact that once again my little craft space seems to be shrinking so I must use up my mountain.


This layout is one I created for a class I held at my local crop. Thankfully all the ladies that took part seemed to love it – big phew!


And after all that scrapping, I’ve managed to do a little art journaling as well. How could I not? 


One background ready to work on, all done with acrylic paints.


And a finished pages, stamped and doodled in my mini journal.

That’s probably going to be it from me now until December as Chris & I are off to New York soon for our annual “just us” break that happens to coincide with my 40th, and that means packing up my journaling travel kit to take with me.  I think that is going to be harder than packing clothes!

Thanks for stopping by!

A good bad photo


Rosie is asserting her independence this week in a way that, at times, has been painful.  Painful to me that is. She started out the week making her own sandwiches, or is that butterwich?  The aftermath was, shall we say, interesting and took some cleaning up.

I decided to take some photo’s of her to mark this new found independence. This is the only one that is out of focus, but a perfect moment catching that cheeky little face full of pride showing of her yummy “butterwich”. This is definitely my good bad photo of 2010.  So, what’s yours?

Are you sitting down?

I think I'm still in shock.  Last night I had a sudden urge to scrapbook, and here's the evidence.  


I've used the October Scrapagogo kit, with no inking or distressing, not a doodle in sight.  Totally unheard of for me! I have never scrapped straight from a single kit but I think I used a good chunk of it on this layout.  So, finally, with all the art journalling I've been doing, I've made a dent in the ever growing stash mountain. Hurrah.


Thanks for stopping by!
