I'm starting this class today. I'm hoping that it improves my scrapping journalling, but also that it encourages me to express myself better.... Since my MS diagnosis, in 2007, I've found that putting my thoughts on paper help a lot... and if done regularly really helps how I feel about things, but, unfortunately, I'm just not very good at keeping a regular diary. Fingers crossed this is the encouragement that I need! No pressure!! lol!

I enjoyed using my new Bazzill jewel templates... plus some rafia type ribbon that I'd had in my stash for a verrrry long time!!
Thanks for looking!

It was for the weekly challenge on UK Scrappers... The challenge was to use pink or blue, bunting, 3 of something and to have a celebration theme. I've just joined a new team on there, called "Mojo Hunters." I thought getting more involved would be good for my motivation!!
I've also been doing a lot of cross stitch lately. My Mum's 80th birthday was in June, and I made this for her....
It was challenging to do, to say the least, but well worth it. Mum loves it. :-)
I've finished a couple of other cross stitch projects, but one's waiting for framing and the other to be made into a cushion for no. 2 son!
Thanks for looking. x

Used more Basic grey paper here, and some rather wonderful Martha Stewart punches. Hope you like the card... thanks for looking. x
The final card I made for Ethan was from his brother. I used another Elzybells stamped image, coloured with Promarkers. The cardstock is part of the Scenic Route Metropolis range... part of a very old Scrummy Stash kit!

I made this card for my Mum to give to my niece for her 22nd birthday (which is today - Happy Birthday Carly!). It's called a trifold shutter card and I learnt how to make it using a great tutorial here - although I altered the measurements to use A4 card.
Just a short post today... as i'm off to work tonight.... and as always running short of time. More cards to follow tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

Another hope is to craft lots more... so yesterday I spent some time making a "never-ending card".... to be honest it felt never ending when I was making it, but in a good way, as there are soooo many surfaces to decorate!! lol!! I got the instruction from an issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft Mag (just checked, it was July '09)
