Journaling 101, week 4

This has been the hardest so far - self journaling, with a photo of yourself ( the challenge was to take the photo yourself - but I think that made it easier than trying to sit for someone else). I was reasonably happy with the end result (unusual for me!) Being able to use SU products does help - they go together so very well. Thanks for popping by.

Journaling 101, week 3

Week 3 was all about a relationship, so I, like many others, chose the relationship between my 3 children. As they are now adults, I am able to look back over many years, and see how they have grown. The photo of them as youngsters was difficult, as there were very few to choose from that include all three, with no-one else ( certainly not so many photos in the days before digital) - and the colours were very "off", so I had to photo edit it to B&W - but it worked reasonably well. The title T'riffic Trio, was what my dad always called them, from the time that the youngest was born.

Journaling 101, week 2

Thought I would just post the last three pages I've done with the inspiring Journaling 101 from Stampin' mama. It is a course well worth doing - encourages thoughtful journaling to go with the beautiful pages we create to leave future generations.
First I will post week 2, which was a travel page , and included hidden journaling.

keesh's Inkspiration sketch challenge #16

Time to attempt another of Keesh's wonderful challenges.
Okay - not sure what I did there, but what I tried to do was put in both the image and address for this challenge - I did warn you at one stage that I am quite a beginner at this! Anyway, I did make a simple card with this cute sketch, all SU products, glitter and dimensionals - and once again, a Christmas card. I'm reasonably happy with it, but time was short, so it is a little plain. And because time was short, I scanned the card instead of photographing it! Thanks for looking, Jo.

journaling 101

It's been awhile - haven't even had time to check out my favourite blogs recently, let alone get anything done that is blog worthy! However, today I finished the first week's assignment of a journaling 101 course, run by Erika Martin (stampinmama), and need to upload the pages to her site, so thought I would put the photo up here as well.
I think that I need to do something desperately about my camera - not happy with the way these photos are turning out! Hope that you have a good week, thanks for stopping by, Jo
