Journal pages galore

I bought a few journals to work  in a few years back and it wasn't until last year I finally dusted one off and cracked it open to have a play whilst away at a scrap retreat. Once the retreat was over the poor journal was left unopened for months. Then in February I decided to do a couple of single pages and then it sat again... until a couple of weeks ago when I was spirited on by  Lisa Oxley and Leanne Jago and their fabulous process videos... it was time to get crackalackin and start creating again... Here are a few pages I have been tinkering with over the past couple of months...

boom.... still on holidays

This consistency thing is working well for me at the minute. I think that mornings are a little better to get things done... and if I don't start in the morning nothing will happen until about 2.30pm then everything from there is downhill until everyone is in bed and I can pretend it is early morning again... which it usually is when I do a regular update.

So a few more challenges have been uploaded today and uploaded and all were for The Scrap Suite...

Wisdom Teeth - no problem 
The Scrap Suite Challenge #1 - using butterflies

Love Ya Guts 
The Scrap Suite challenge #2 - inspired by clothing

Remember  beauty
The Scrap Suite Challenge #3 - using stars & hearts

till next time enjoy your creativity...

It's holidays again....

I'm having a quiet giggle to myself as my last post was 'holidays are over' and now it seems I am on holidays yet again.... it seems to be the only time I can find time to catch up on the Blog at the moment. So here is a quick catch up on past layouts and challenges over the past couple of months & what I have been up to.

I've entered a few scrappy challenges during February and March and even had a little win which I am very grateful for. If you have never had a crack at challenges please do... I find them a great source of inspiration and they help me out of those dreadful creative ruts.

Hello Sunshine - The Scrap Suite - February challenge #1

What makes you happy - The Scrap Suite - February Challenge #3

Oh and there are lots more but they are for later or this will be a tad bit of an overload.  I've even dusted off my art journal and having a play in there... a share shall be in order of all of that soon.

At the end of February I had a fun getaway to Buderim with a few of the girls who travel to Melbourne each year to craft together... a plan was hatched for the girls from the plane to catch up and create ... hence the Buderim Bitches were born thanks to two crazy sisters Sue & Mandy... it was an awesome creative getaway that the girls strung together & I cannot wait till we can all get together again to fuel each others inspiration.

till next time...
