A Trip Down Memory Lane CC

If you don't already know,

are having their first cyber crop next week-end (17-19 June).

I'm hoping to take part and encourage you to do the same if you're free.

To start us off, they've organised an ATC swap on the theme of:

Firsts or
A Trip Down Memory Lane

I've gone down Memory Lane for my ATCs which are called
Remember when ...

I decided to get a little messy and do a collage background.
Thank goodness PVA glue peels off skin, that's all I can say!
There is an ATC under there somewhere!!!

One I'd glued and trimmed them all, I stamped some flowers and inked the edges.
The clocks were printed onto acetate and spray glued into place with a gem added to the centres.
The wording was written onto white card, edges inked and stuck into place.
Now I'm covered in glue and ink, so I'm off to have a clean up while you see the finished products.

and here's all four of them. Three to send and one to keep.

Hey, Pippa, I'm slowly learning from your wonderful work. Sometimes it's good to get messy and layer, layer, layer. I've seen all your creations and told myself that one day I would. Well, that day's today :D Thanks xx

Love, Sarah xoxo

52Q ~ Q23 - LO and Journalling

Q23 - How can I be kinder to myself?

I spend way too long being unkind to myself and my body, so if I'm going to be kinder to myself I need to:

* Eat better
* Exercise more
* Take my pills every day without fail
* Take time to read and listen to music
* Remember there are things I can do and not focus so much on things I can't do
* Not compare myself to those who are brighter, smarter, thinner, fitter, prettier etc, etc, etc
* Live life for the moment I'm in and not keep dwelling on the past
* Take time to let the creativity flow and actually do an art journal. Get hints, tips and ideas from Pippa
* Take time to enjoy the simple things in life

LO was made using:
Artist Dottie from the Fun Time Collection available from Charmed Cards and Crafts
and papers and elements from Computer Scrapbook

Summer of Colour

I going to see if I can find my Summer of Colour
(sorry, being English, I have to add the 'u' lol)
Will you find yours?

And I'm planning on actually completing my first art journal  for this course.
I've started art journals in the past, but never really knew what to do in them.
This time, I plan on starting, keeping up and finishing one. We'll see.

Love, Sarah xoxo

Your card won't be counted unless you use both the required elements. We're not called Sunday Sketch & Stamp for nothing you know lol

This week
