A-Z Album

A-Z Album: My Faith

Here is a journal I made for another challenge I am in - the challenge is set by the It's A Creative World guy's and it is to do an A-Z journal of anything you want it to be. First of all I was going to do a BOM but decided another challenge I am in will cover that so I decided in the end to do it on My Faith!

Elsie challenge - no.1

Elsie challenge - no.1

Finally feeling a bit like myself again after having the horrible flu!! I have had to try and play catch up on all the challenges I am involved in. This is LO I did for the Elsie 52 Scrapbooking Challenges - the prompt is: "Work those words - Whether it's a quote, a list of your favorite adjectives or computer-generated phrases, journaling on strips of cardstock is a great way to add visual excitement to your page. Be creative and cut a favorite quote into pieces to add to your design." This is my Dad on our trip to Aus last year - love this photo of him!

Feeling Blue!

Pretty much how I am feeling today. I have come down with the dreaded lurgy "the flu"!!! Felt pretty rotten since boxing day so thought I should pay a visit to the Dr. So I am drowning myself with all medications to get rid of this dreaded thing.

This was today's prompt for the 365 Challenge.

Prompt 2

"I´m gonna make a change,
For once in my life
It´s gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right
I'm starting with the man in the mirror"

Micheal Jackson

Grab your notebook at some point today and journal your feelings, or with just one word that sums up the day for you! Check out Ali Edwards blog for a "Word for 2008"

Well I had taken a photo but my battery has run (could say that about myself physically as well lol!) and do you think I can find the lead??? NO!! So come tomorrow it will be uploaded.

So for the word that sums my day up, well it would have to be "BLUE"!
(Although I did manage a bit of shopping spree on the net purely for medicinal purposes you understand!!)

Well here is the first prompts for the 365 challenge.
Prompt 1

Lets start the year with laughter

This is my local park where I spent many happy times playing as a child so I thought it would be nice to capture something from the past where I had many laughs

Happy New Year - 2008!!

Well a new year is once upon us again, where has 2007 gone??

I have made a few resolutions for 2008 and one of them is to spend more time being creative. So in order to keep up this resolution I have joined up to 3 challenges which will run throughout the year - I just hope that I can stick to them.

The first 2 start today: 1 being the 365 Challenge by Anna Bowkis

I hope everyone has a Happy, Healthy & Crafty 2008 xx
