I couldn't live without...

Here is my latest CJ entry, which I will have to pass on to Ann at the crop on Thursday but which I totally love so may have to make a layout inspired by it at some point! Its just so bright and colourful, and really cheers me up to look at it.

As with all my CJ entries, I wanted to make it really interactive, so it has a flap which opens on the left hand side to reveal another photo and my journalling and on the right hand side I made a pocket which holds another two photos on a pull out card.

I made the entry using some Love Elsie Betty papers and Autumn Leaves Hearts and Stars and Flourishes stamps (as ever!). When I first saw the Love Elsie papers I wasn't sure so I decided to start off with them on a smaller project like this and now I think I will definitely try them on a layout too.

The journalling in the CJ reads:

Wow! How hard is it to decide on those things in life that you just couldn't live without? There seem to be so many! In the end I got it down to four:
- My Family (who I couldn't have gotten this far without)
- My Gorgeous Guy (who loves me and keeps me sane!)
- My Fluff Monsters (AKA my three little cats)
- Scrapping (of course!)

Of course there are tons of other things I probably couldn't live without either but there is only so much space in a CJ!

I also sent my photos of my Isle of Wight mini book off to Rebecca today so hopefully if the pictures have come out well enough they will appear on her website soon. Unfortunately the Sun wasn't playing ball and stayed stubbornly behind the clouds while I was trying to take the photos so they weren't the best but we'll see if Rebecca can do anything with them.

I've had a great idea for another layout about me and my sis (I'm so sad I came up with it while I was trying to sleep last night!) so thats in the pipeline, as well as a couple more layouts for Rebecca if I can put together enough of the remaining stash from the mini book. However, today I've decided to indulge in a bit of my other passion, baking, and make a banana and walnut tealoaf, so all scrapping is going to come second to that today.

  1. Wow that CJ is delish! I had a bad experience with the one I did, so I have never fancied doing another one untill I saw yours. I would love to have an entry like that!
    You go girl!!
