A-Z Art Journal

Well I finally made a start on my A to Z art journal today. I'm quite happy with this page, not sure how "art" it is though. It's all about how much stuff I have so I used A for Acquisitive. I was struggling for a word so had a bit of a leaf through a dictionary and couldn't believe it when I saw this, its so applicable to me!

My first digi layout

I finally took the plunge, I've gone digi! I know its nothing spectacular but boy am I proud of this layout. My first bit of digi scrapping!

I realised the other day that if I could get my head round digi scrapping then I'd be able to scrap wherever I go. Unfortunately most people seem bothered by snippets of paper and glitter all over their carpet - can't think why. This way I should be able to scrap whenever the mood takes me - just need to get to grips with everything now. I know what I want to do, trying to tell psp to do it is the hard part...

I used Shabby Princess Holiday papers and brad and a Miss Mint Christmas charm.

My Mug

Well, here is my first photo for the overlooked challenge. I love this mug and use it all the time (even though I have plenty of other pretty mugs). The dog has such a great expression and its a really comfy mug to hold (is it just me that finds certain mugs uncomfortable?)

It posed for the photo shoot on my craft table, next to a piece of my home made christmas cake. I was am so proud of that cake, its scrummy, only problem is I only have enough left for a couple more slices.

The flikr group looks great so far

Think I may be overstretching myself a bit, I am signed up to 3 challenges for this year already, and they're all quite demanding!! (and I haven't finished Shimelle's Christmas journal yet) Anna Louise Bowkis' 365 days involves a photo and journalling prompt each day and a layout prompt each week. So far I am up to date with the journalling but definitely behind with the photos. Looking forward to the first layout prompt though... Then there's the A to Z art journal on It's a Creative World. I've never done an art journal before and I'm so looking forward to getting messy and trying something new. I am going to do a book of me and have a pretty good idea what I want to do for my first page. I haven't made a start yet but plan on getting some supplies tomorrow and playing while I'm off work this week The last one is Ashley Wren's Overlooked, all about capturing the little things in life. She is going to post a photo prompt, followed by a journalling prompt then a layout prompt - starting tomorrow I'll post some pics on here as soon as anything gets done. Looks like I'm going to be busy for a while! So much for a rest after Christmas....
