True Stories :: Putting Pen to Paper

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!

Dance in the Rain!

I've been wanting to make this canvas, ever since I bought the set of Tim Holtz sentiment stamps, which includes this message. Yesterday I finally got round to it!! The embellishments I used came from the May Scrapagogo kit, and I used Versamagic inks for the background.

Thanks for looking!

Overdue blog again!

This double page layout, was made a few weeks ago, for a challenge on UKS. The challenge was to use scenic photos, stamping on the page and to "mix up the lettering" in some way. When we were in Lyme Regis in August (on an extremely wet and windy day) I decided to take lots of photos - with the intention of doing just such a layout!

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!
