Frozen Peas

Here are two journal pages I made for a swap.  I made the backgrounds ages ago, but didn't know what to do with them.  In truth I liked them too much to use!  In real life they are brighter and the stars have a lovely mica sheen.
I love the quirky Stampotique girls and have to give them red eyes!  The quotes are Dylusions stamps and say 'change for no one and believe in who you are' and 'never be too proud to serve frozen peas'.  The peas one is my favourite; not sure why as I don't even like peas!

I am looking forward to Shimelle's Journal your Christmas which starts on Saturday.  Last year I made it to day 11 and filled the rest of the book with pages made by my younger relatives - ages 6 to 27!  I just handed over a box of lovely Christmas crafty things and some background card cut to 8x8.  They all dived in and had a great time.  I also added in a cross stitch Santa my mum made years ago.  The pages made by my relatives are my favorites and it was a great way to keep them busy while dinner was cooking.  Can't wait to do it again this year.

I hope you are having a lovely week.  Anne x

Happy Halloween

Ok I know I'm a bit late, but 'better late than never' as my Gran would say. 

I love the colours of Halloween, especially the pumpkin orange, so couldn't resist treating myself to a few Halloween papers and stickers.  Thanks to Shimelle's Remix class I am finally getting the hang of clusters - I suspect I was just trying too hard really.  Anyway I'm loving the class and learning a lot.

Had a quiet Halloween, with only two 'trick or treaters' so I gave the rest of the bags of treats to the workmen who are resurfacing some of the pavements round here.  They must have liked the treats as they have stopped blocking my drive with their vans!

Have a lovely week, Anne x
