Finding the love again

So it seems that after attending an art journalling class at Scrapbooking From Scratch with the super talented and inspiring Lisa Oxley, I have found my love for scrapbooking again. Don't get me wrong I'm still trying to fit it into the everyday, but I am consciously making an effort to do something, no matter how little, crafty each day!!!

So this month I have been playing and experimenting in my art journal, no photos of that, and also have completed a few challenges. I'm hoping that I can get a few more done before months end :)

First up is the Kraft+ Challenge. You had to use Kraft+ Jigsaw puzzle pieces. And here is my entry:

So I chose to cut my photo into a jig saw piece and also my title is inspired by the challenge.
I'm trying to use my handwriting more. I'm not a big lover of my writing, but I'm trying to make myself use it!!!

Next up was a challenge at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. It was a Monochromatic Mood Board Challenge:

I went with the black and white.

And a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I'll have more to share with you soon xxx


  1. Two great layouts. I love your take on the monochrome challenge because it is so textured and detailed but still has a minimalist feel with that fabulous white space. Great result.
