My Time To Craft #128

Going Round In Circles

I designed the transparent circle background using the free downloadable programme
and feathered the edges to sort of look like paint rings bleeding into each other.

All other elements came from Computer Scrapbook's Afternoon Fiesta

I've Made A Mess For A Card

Yep, you read it right.

I've made this mess

to make this easel card using a digi-download from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

Now I know why I like digi scrapping so much.
No mess to clean up afterwards!

52Q ~ Journalling and LO for Q7

Q7 - journalling and LO

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

I've tried and failed so many things in life that knowing I could do something and not fail would be amazing.

So, what would I do? I would go back to school and get my qualifications. I would be an architect and have amazing buildings built to my specifications.

I would draw the plans for my own home and include a large craft room and an indoor swimming pool with a roof that folds back if the warm summer sun shows.

I would choose some numbers and do the lottery. Of course I would win if I wasn't failing wouldn't I?

I would find a handsome man with an amazing personality and as I'm not failing, he'd be the love of my life forever and a day.

I would sing for a living Yes, I know I would be an architect, but as well as that I would sing. I love music and sing all the time. The only time I've sung in front of an audience was as a young teen at special Church services. Was I any good? I have no idea. No-one's going to tell a youngster they were rubbish are they?

So, yes I'd song and be on the stage in the West End. If only I knew I couldn't fail. The world would be my oyster.

I've used elements found on Google for my LO

Soul Scrappers SSQ6 Challenge

SSQ#6 - Winter Wonderland is happening over at Soul Sisters and I've joined in.

SSQ is where 20 lucky ladies get sent an envelope containing
scrapbooking embellishments and we're to do a LO using all of them.

This time, Karen sent us:

A piece of patterned paper
A snowman kit
A small chipboard
A circular window sheet with snowflakes on
Blue thread
Large white snowflake
Kraft top note cut out
Small tag or metal swirl
4 small rhinestones
and an extra of the saying "happiness is a journey not a destination"
* I also found a tiny red heart in my envelope, so used that too

We could add anything else we wanted to and I've added the backing card
and of course, I've used a photo (my niece being silly as usual!! hee hee)

So, what did I do with mine? Have a look

I used the glitter to jazz up the snowflake, cut the patterned paper in two,
placed the circle window behind the snowflake, inked the tag, sewn round
the edge of the top notch, made up the snowman adding a scarf using some
of the thread and drawn some arms, then doodled around the edge of the card.
