“5 Grand Kids!”

It is quite warm in western Vic today and not venturing outside till later! Yep being a girl lol!

So sitting by the fan I thought I would attack my gorgeous kit I got from Sarah Ward who I know on Facebook πŸ™‚

The kit she put together is enough to make four layouts and she included her step by step instructions for putting the pages together πŸ™‚

This is my first page using some lovely Basic Grey pp and bits from my stash!

004-001Aren’t the colours gorgeous! Some pics of mum and the ‘grandies’ from last yr. There are only 5 but that is a good number for mum to keep track off πŸ™‚Β  I made the rolled rose, misted some doilies and punched the butterflies! I had a little accident while inking the edges of the background paper so thought it was better to cut it down a bit!

006-001These rolled flowers are so easy and inexpensive to make! I just drew a circle with the inside of my tape, which is what Sarah suggested to do. Cut around the circle to you get to the middle, then roll it in and add a bit of glue to keep it stuck, πŸ™‚ Too easy πŸ™‚

One down and three to go! I am have fun, but need a little break so might have another go at Donkey Kong on the Wii. Yep me playing a video game, and even funnier Cody teaching me lol!!

Have a great evening

“Do You Journal?”

I must admit I have been lacking in the journaling part of my scrap booking, but that is changing! πŸ™‚ I think I have realized I like telling a bit more of the story on my layouts and doing ”one little word’ has really helped me see its importance!

I am journaling everyday this yr as a challenge to myself and so I have more of our stories written down!Β  I couldn’t find a bought journal that I really liked so I decided to make my own and use some things out of my stash! πŸ™‚

I was going to alter a book, but would have been too bulky so instead I pulled all the pages out and up cycled it! πŸ™‚

IMG_1177-001This is the finished front cover! I sanded it first then added the title, stamped and masked with gesso, and the butterflies with paint! Finished off with a bit of washi which u will see though out my journal! πŸ™‚

IMG_1190-001I used different pattern papers from my stash with index cards, tags and postcards to journal on and I will add some photos here and there!

IMG_1200Β  These are just a few pages that I have slightly decorated with stamps and washi! πŸ™‚ It isn’t too big that it wont fit in my bag if I go anywhere and can jot down things if I want too! Why don’t you have a go at making your own! πŸ™‚ I am getting into the habit of sitting down in the evening and writing in my days events, good or bad whatever goes on! πŸ™‚
