Journal Page 2

Kate's examples


My attempt, everyone else was working in a bigger journal than me, but I didn't think to size things down, so painted circles ended up quite overwhelming, but I styled it out. (LOL)


some fab work by Karen and Angie

and then it was time for selfies

 just joking, love you really Kate

 Kate didnt want a piccie of the hugging photo LOL

Happy Bir'day

I so loved the new bird stamps from Tim Holtz I couldn't wait to get stamping with them, and I invented a new phrase (or I hope I did) Happy Bir'day.

So this card was made whilst I was waiting for them to arrive

and then they arrived, and I played and played

Dont you just love them, so nice to have something different from the normal Tim Holtz stamps.
