No comment!

So, you will have noticed that I didn't get past Day 1 of Blogging for Scrapbookers!!

However I am sort of up-to-date with Journal Your Christmas. And here is a layout I've done for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out challenges which is also for the It's All About Me blog

Monday 2 November 2009


Today is the first day of the Blogging for Scrapbookers class with Shimelle. And I'm up-to-date! Ha! ha! I always start out with the best of intentions but invariably fall behind with Shimelle's classes and I have only ever managed to complete two of them. Well one day down and 14 prompts to go. Can but hope!

New background ~ new start?

I have signed up to do Shimelle's new class 'Blogging for Scrapbookers' which starts next week. I started looking around the internet for a new background for this blog and found this lovely watercolour one. Still having one or two problems with the editing of the header but hopefully I will be able to sort it out. The font and size of the header are out of proportion with the space for it. Hardly a crisis though!

I am really hoping that the class will spur me on to use this space more often.

My Chunky Fat Book

The pages made by the other ladies on UKS were sent to me yesterday. My theme was JOURNEY which could be interpreted widely - life journey, faith journey, travel, pathways etc

The end result is fantastic. The pages go so well together. I find it amazing that 8 people can be working on something all across the country and yet each individual contribution is in keeping with the others.

This week I've been working on a DT submission to The Studio. Click on the link on this page to see what The Studio is. I've completed 2 of the layouts and almost completed the third ~ just got to stick it down. Final layout to do today and then the 50 words of why I should be a member of the Design Team.

What am I up to?

Well, it certainly hasn't been posting on here!!!

I'm taking part in three Circle Journals on UKS and two swaps. The swaps are nearly at an end now. Next week I should be posting the 'gardens' I've made for the 'In this garden' swap.

This one is a fairy garden.

I also belong to Scrapbooking from the Inside Out ~ an American Kit Club ~ where we scrap on a given emotion or personal theme each month. This month's theme is Strength. We get given 6 or 7 challenges within the month for layouts. The journaling can become very personal which is why most of mine is hidden journaling :)

For this layout I set myself a personal challenge of making the journaling the main focus rather than the photos.

Chunky Fat Book Swap

On UKS I am part of the Chunky Fat Book Swap. We had to decorate 4x4" thick 'pages' on a theme chosen by each team member. Here are 6 of the 8 I have made.

I hope the people I've made them for will like them. It's really hard making things for other people ~ especially ones you don't know!

Where have the last 4 months gone?

I can't believe it's 4 months since I last wrote on this blog. Such a lot has happened in that time including a wedding in Florida and a party to celebrate here in the UK.
