Journaling Junkies April Layout


Herewith my latest submission for Journaling Junkie this week...

Our spec was to create a page about something significant to us that would need an explanation for others...

Before you read on - if you are one of those people who struggles with journalling (or if you think your journalling needs ANY improvement at all) - go & visit this site & sign up as a follower - this girl works hard & would love some support - PLUS you will be the one to benefit!

I received 3 Basic Grey Paper Packs this week & this is (practically) all from the Sultry range. All except for the thickers Platform alphas I used for the date. I kinda felt guilty that it was so easy 'cos all the papers already co-ordinated - ridiculous hey?! I am really all about simplifying things - well, I am trying to be. I'm enjoying cutting around printed elements on papers so much these days, & the novelty doesn't seem to be wearing off...The smaller elements were all pre-cut stickers so that was simple. I just bumped up the 2 hearts with foamcore for some dimension.

As for the little dots around the title & on the brackety strip above the date - I took these from inside the holes on the scallop strip (see above the photo) By pushing them through with my paper piercer. Top left hand corner semi-circle shape is a full circle stuck over the edge. Just flip the paper over after & cut off the excess...(Keep it for somewhere else of course,LOL!) I hand-journalled in dark brown & inked the journalling strips with my lime green inkpad. So that's it girls...easy peasy this week & pretty effective nonetheless I reckon.

Hey wonderful l/o & really such fun. Good to hear someone else is tired of the "ethnic thing" I don't feel so bad now I am not the only one. LOL. Your family photos are stunning as usual & you are a talented photographer.(You are also lucky your family is cooperative). Have a Blessed Easter all of you and enjoy the holidays.

This is such a bright and cheerful layout and of course the beginning of your duck collection contributes to a cheerful subject. Hugs from Desire
