Cool Cats

Hi there
Blogging twice in a about being on a roll.....
I managed to finish this page today....even though I had a tough time looking for a photo where the subjects did not look very impressed!
This is for Color,Stories Inspiration and one of the journaling prompts was Grumpy Cats Meme......
I chose this photo of my Sister and I not looking very impressed with the sight of a camera on the beach....

 My Journaling reads  "No photos from the waist down PLEASE! Remember we are over 40!
Cool Cat Sisiters relaxing in the sun! Mytilini 2012.
I have flipped the sketch  to read horizontaly...I have used an old rub-on that is a definition of observation...that is what cats always do.....I have used a banner, a cat and some string for my evidence.... oh yes I have also doodled around my title and a little around the page ..can you spot the doodling?
Enjoy Saturday...


Hi there Dear Friends.

It feels so good to be scrapping again!
As this is the first L.O of the year I decided to make it all about me....
Color Stories Inspiration has a collabaration with Words & Paintery this month ..and today is the last day to enter.
Seeing that the theme at Words & Paintery was "this is the 1st day of the rest of your life" I thought it would be b perfect for a first L.O. of the year......

My theme here is that every day is the "First"day of our lives if we choose to make it so!!

I loved the colours this week.....I used a 7 Dots Studio paper "Soulmates" as took strain with the I backed it on black cardstock,
I added a see-through element music tissue paper, some Gesso, then some teal paint...I then coloued some water coloring paper with some mists to achieve the True Blue....I decided to add 3 words as a title so there I have my 3 of something. I have hearts moulded with texture paste, a strip of ribbon, metal, and bling.
 My journaling is as follows " HERE &NOW find joy in the ordinary. Today and every day can be the beginning of a new start! Remember each day to try and better myself. Today is a day to remember to smile, laugh and to play and above all to remember to love."

Wishing you all a very good week-end.

Affirmation Feathers

Hello there Friends.
Yes January is almost over and I have not wished you all a very Happy New Year.....
I have been a BAD Blogger and an even worst Scrapbooker.....I need to get back to my Lay-Outs!!!
I have however been playing with my paints....I have signed up for Life Book 2015...and I am up to date woop woop
Here are my paintings from Week5
My Affirmation Feather...lesson by Tamara Laporte

I also enoyed the Lesson by Rachel Rice even though ,looking at it now I think it is a little flat!

 Once I was done last night I looked at the water-colour paper that I had coloured for the feathers, that I had all ready to go and on the spur of the moment I made a little Prayer Box....a first for me...the Midori style booklet hold a little written prayer.

Keep well...have a good week-end....I am hoping to tuck into my scrapbooking today.
