I’m back!!!!!! So, being back means that I’m trying to do more art journaling every day. I last posted in June of last year!!!! OMG …… a bit after I started my diet … I haven’t been doing my dailies, I confess … but I’m back now, and before I start showing my work I thought I’ll show you what else I’ve made this past year …
Here is a double page that I did in January at a crop, thinking that I was ready to start my dailies again …. LOL Yeah, right!!!!!
I had few things with me, but I’ve let it untouched as I like to see what I can do when I’m away from my work area!!!
I’ve been working on faces in particular as I got Jane Davenport’s book, Beautiful Faces!!!
This one I did on the ship on my way to Naxos!
Then I created these while drawing with my nieces and nephews:
This one I did on a messy page:
My niece Sofia inspired by me, drew a couple of girls for me, so I’ve added them in my book too … she’s 13 now …
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed my pages!

Over at the Crafty Life blog they had a colour pallet for their September Challenge! Such beautiful colours, I was attracted to the blue, grey and deep orange … so I looked thru my embellishments … picked up a photo from an envelop on my desk and had a go!!!!
Here is the inspiration pallet:
Here is my take on it:
It was lots of fun to use my stuff for this layout … a favourite selfie of myself and niece from last Christmas holidays!
Journaling on tag, that slides under the photo ….
Some rubons to add depth and dimension … used my stapler to attach title!
Have used difference size foam pads to raise elements differently for interest!
I hope you like this layout! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Saturday night I realised that I would be meeting up with a friend on Sunday who was celebrating her birthday!!!! So I was inspired to make her a Birthday/fused/pocket letter-type of a card!!!!
I wanted only the front to be decorated … and I used bits that I had already cut down … I grabbed a few embellies and a sticker sheet with lovely birthday quoted!
So here is the front …
Here is the back ….
… and if you press this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Kg-GaFVJc you will be able to watch a video with the pocket letter!!!

Something totally different today …
Here is something that I made for the entrance wall at the school where I work:
The children love to see their photos on the wall … I was behind and had photos up from 2012 … Yikes, but one of my goals is to be more organised this year ….
I created another single board with photos from Christmas 2012 … so will show you soon when I get a photo of it! :)
Happy Weekend everyone!!!

You can see lots of tiny confetti pieces … I’ve fused shut 5 of the pockets …

Do you remember my last post way back in March of my Snakes and ladders rug???
Well, I finished it by stitching some numbers on it, then my Mom finished it off by sewing ‘patching work style’ a border all around it, adding some padding to it, and a back to it, so that it could be used as a game ‘rug’
Here it is finished:
So I was able to find pawns and a dice and gave it to my nieces and nephew as a gift!!!
The totally loved it and played with it … I’m so happy that they enjoyed it!!!!
Thank you for dropping by!

Heidi Swapp who a greatly admire for her drive to preserve moments and memories, started a 30 day challenge on Instagram and Facebook on August 2nd.
I quickly put together a minibook by cutting pages up in my sizzix, and decided to take part! It made recording my summer holidays all the more interesting!
Here is the simple cover I made:
… and a couple of interior pages ….
… and the link to the video that I made:
I have always felt that scrapbooking is all about preserving the memory, so I was very happy to take part and complete this!!!
