2 Layouts to Share

OMG…yes, it’s true.
Not only do I have a newly designed scrap room, but I managed to complete TWO layouts.

First for Liz Weber who has a new blog A Page from My Sketchbook. It’s a ripper of a sketch and she has a wonderful creative team.

I mixed the sketch up a little but it IS based on the sketch, if you think laterally!!!

The second has a bit of a story to it. I received my e-newsletter from Creating Keepsakes and it had a link to a digi template and tutorial by Jessica Sprague.


I think I’m in digi heaven. Jessica’s tutorial was so easy to understand and the commands were the same in PSE4.0 (no, not upgrading…too skint and really don’t need it.)

So, I did a template using photos of Rainer by Rachel Richter

(digi papers: Little Dreamer Designs Vintage Dreams Retro)

and dabbled into the dark world of HYBRID SCRAPPING and created this layout using Cosmo Cricket PP

The little journaling card, bottom right, was a purchase from Calli & Mo, the vintage shop in Denver. How gorgeous!!

Since the shopping spree last week, I’ve kept all the tags and have been using them on the layouts. They are so arty these days – bet you can’t pick them!!

Here are 4 books that I bought in Denver, Colorado and have been inspiring me in so many ways since. Kinda like an epiphany!

And THIS magazine

I must have read it a million times on the plane to the USA!! I just picked up Jan/Feb’s issue and it hasn’t disappointed – once again.

Vivian Bonder is running her altered journal online class again soon. I’m not missing it this time!!

I am working on my goals (and layout of..) based on my ONE WORD – nourished which I have now changed to
Came across this blog called Homegrown Hospitality and just couldn’t help myself.

I would love to see someone else do a really simple doodle like this, based on their word for 2009. Mine is done with watercolour pencils, but I really wanted the Twinkling H2Os. Can you see where Rainer tried to “help” me with the colouring? Tiny smudge but I don’t care.

Take care and share…
