A peek into my journal

A little while ago I mentioned I'd found an old domestic science manual and was planning to turn it into my art journal. I've covered the front in texture paste, dylusions and glimmermist and it has become a record of my journey to get healthy which started on the 31st December '12.   So I'm 10 months into that journey now and a lot has changed!

I've completed a few pages now so I thought it was time to share, even though these pages are a bit personal :)

There's a few other pages I plan to do next weekend at the Pages 2 Scrap Spring Retreat ... woo hoo! My only retreat for this year and I'm planning to completely relax and enjoy it, rather than trying to cram in as many layouts as possible like I normally do. I might even spend most of my time in the day spa at the resort, who knows?! :)

123 challenge for October!

Helloooo lovely peeps, and my hasn't my poor blog been a bit neglected lately... I have been busy with all sorts of things and unfortunately haven't had as much time to scrap as I usually do! And, I must apologise - a little slack in commenting on all your lovely challenge entries! Sorry!

Anyway, October's here already! OMG how did that happen... Christmas will be upon us before we know it. I just realised my layout for this month looks a little Halloween-y, but that wasn't my intention... I was actually going for:

This month at 123 Challenge it's yellow, 'heart' and mixed alphas, so here's my take on it!

Yep - Holly hiding under the kitchen table being a tiger... with no pants on.

It was awesome to see so many people get on board and take up last month's challenge; we had 35 entries which was a great improvement on the past few months, things had been a little quiet in 123 land! But now - pow - right back into it, with so many fantastic entries too. Head on over to the 123 site to see the fab DT samples for this month!
