Getting the mojo on for 2011...

Only back for a few hours on Saturday and I was back in my happy place - my scrapping room churning out the layouts. I completed this one using a twisted sketches sketch. I really love it, even if I do say so myself. I didn't coordinate as much as I usually do and threw some papers together that I wouldn't normally go for (like the polka dot and the wood grain) I used my gorgeous new banana frog build-a-cupcake stamps (which I won doing a blog hop - woo!) The only problem is that I don't have a close-up lens yet for my ebay bargain slr and so you can't see all the detail. The subtitle reads - sweet, cute, delish, cheeky. Instead of just making new years resolutions I decided to scrap about it. Inspired by the studio challenge I made a layout about the changes I wish to make this year. I used lots of American Crafts stash as it was a teen range and went along the lines of school and making targets. The journalling reads... 1) Lose weight - exercise more and eat more healthier (no more cupcakes :( ) 2) Spend less and save more. No more eating out all the time! 3) Be a better / kinder wife. Nuff said! 4) Be more spiritual. Spend time doing the things that matter most. It is now placed on my wall to motivate me. So far have done well on goal 1 and had a big, fresh, delicious, crunchy salad for tea. Although I haven't quite managed the exercise part yet. I have also tried very hard at goal number 3 and made tea for the hubby and cleaned the kitchen and gave him a back massage. Dunno if it will last when school starts back tomorrow though... Last, but not least, this cute little Christmas layout which I completed for my design team over at Scrap that Poetry. There is a choice of two poems so it's a great challenge to take part of to use up some of your Christmas stash and pics. This is a better pic than the one on the blog as I used my camera phone for that one and it was a bit rubbish! Get over to the Scrap That Poetry blog and take part - we'd love you to join in, it ends on the 14th Jan! Phew I think I have burnt calories just typing up this mammoth post! Happy bank holiday Brits! x


  1. wow you have been busy! these layouts are amazing I love all of them so much! You're so lucky to have won those cupcake stamps and I love all the different papers you've used, they work so well together and the concertined ribbon strip looks great.
    I think your time for a change page is my fav, its quite simple but so stunning and i love the tear at the top and the pic you used goes really well with the theme! I like the background paper too and just everything about it! Good luck with your goals! The Elf page is really cool too, very christmassy and I like the border round the photo xx
