Weekend over

and so I was able to get in to my room today; weekends in my house I am LUCKY if I get to sniff the air in my art room. Saturdays and Sundays are time with my DH, used to be time with the kids and Stuart but invariably the kids are out doing their own thing.
Saturday was sign up day over on PW for a swap hosted by the lovely Christy Laudig. Following all her teasers we learnt that the swap was to make a Whimsy Word Journal. The journal had to have 8 signatures/16 pages so I got cracking today to make mine.

this was the first one I made, I chose my images added them to my background which was made of of scraps which I randomly stick on to cardstock as I cut out for other projects, this way nothing goes to waste and I end up with a textured background; this was then washed over with perfect pearls for a shimmer.
I embellished with Tim Holtz distress stickle, his new one which is clear. Added some jewels, gotta love bling and hey presto first one done.

The second one is more muted, with flowers and ribbon for color. The words say "FRIENDS ARE TWO SOULS IN ONE BODY"

I only have to swap one of these and the other will go to one of the 5 who signed up for my Craft it Forward over on Facebook.
This is going to be a brief post... China bought New Moon on Blu Ray so we are going to sit and watch it.
Will post again tomorrow with some goodies I got from the lovely Mary Ann xx
