May 123 Challenge

Such a long time since I've blogged!

As most of you probably know by now, I have been in hospital since February having intensive chemotherapy for leukaemia (A.L.L.), so my scrapping output has been just about zero.

I have a small trolley of supplies with me, and just lately, I have managed to get a couple of things done.One of them was the May challenge at the 123 Challenge blog.

 It's not often I attempt an A4 size for my scrapping, but someone had sent me a present with some pieces of really thick cardboard used as protection, and I wanted to really get stuck into the background with lots of inks and texture paste, so it was perfect for the job because then I wouldn't have to worry about warping (which is one of my pet hates).

Here's how it ended up....

The criteria for this month is the colour GREEN, the word TIME and the technique JOURNALLING.

I created the texture in the background by using corrugated cardboard and one of my favourite Words Or Whatever altaMATZ with texture paste.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope I will be more productive in the coming weeks so I will have more to share for next time.

The start of a NEW YEAR!

It's always an exciting time in our calendars when the New Year rolls around. For me it signals a fresh resolutions, but just a spring clean of the mind and a whole heap of calendar dates to fill up.

I am so happy to announce that I have been asked to stay on the WOW Design Team for another year, and I am excited about all the wonderful chipboard, wood veneer and AltaMATZ I will get to test-run in the process. I have really enjoyed working with Suzanne, San and all the other girls on the team....roll on 2014 and let's do it all again, but bigger and better!

I have also been asked to stay on the challenge blog sites of 123 and Kraft It Up for another 6 month term. The challenge blogs are something I looove doing, just wish there was more time to complete all of them out there. 

I thought with the end of my year as a Scrapbooking Memories master which was a WHOLE heap of FUN, I would have lots of extra time, but it doesn't seem so.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and if I were to make a New Year's resolution, it would be to update my blog MUCH MORE REGULARLY! Let's see how we go!
