- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. I run UK based on-line papercraft and stitchers groups.

Having a bit of a textured tag moment methinks. Not used my embossing folders much before now, so seem to want to emboss EVERYTHING! Getting my new Tag Die doesn't help either as EVERYTHING has to be a tag aswell!
Thought I'd enter this into The Stampman Challenge for this fortnight which is all about the Colours of Spring.
I love the greens of the leaves unfolding on the bare branches of the trees. I especially love all the birds flitting about making nests and laying eggs. All in all a lovely time of new growth.

For my second Art Journal Page I wanted to use the theme from a SWAP card that I'd done on our craft group UKPC last year. So I made a card then went on to make a scrapbook page and now the AJ page.
Unfortunately a teacher had said these books were too young for me when I was about 12yrs so I stopped reading all together. Until I was in my twenties, that is, when I was waiting for a train on Blackfriars Station and spotted "The Wench is Dead" by Colin Dextor and as I was a MORSE fan this inspired me again.
What book do you remember as a child?

The Craft Barn Challenge this month is Art Journalling, so thought I'd have a go . Although I think I have just come up with a Scrapbook Page!! The remit was to do hearts and fill them with the things you love so here are mine:- God, Husband and Son, Creation, Our Home, Worship Songs, Birds and Crafting. At least it readdresses the balance after my February Fancy Page!
Spot the Difference
Not wishing to be completely defeated in the Art Journalling department I went out and bought an Artist's Sketchbook (for want of something to do the job). Book is 7"x10" and my page 8"x8" so I chopped off portions from the top and bottom and stuck them on the sides! Voilà - an art journal page at last!
PS Added something I love but forgot initially! and some more hearts.............will it stop there?

Thought I'd try my hand at a sketch from the new Scrap365 February Issue Magazine. It happens to be their challenge sketch this month so I have entered it there too. I mainly used the Radio Times for pictures so I may update as I find better images. Now UKPC members want to get together their "Eye Candy" candidates so who would you put on yours?
