Looking out For.....

We talk about new beginnings all the time, new baby, new year, new school etc.  But I always make sure that when there is a new baby in a house the older sibling/s aren't forgotten, it is a new beginning for them also and sometimes they need to also feel special.

They always get a present and a card to celebrate their becoming big brothers and/or sisters.  Something taught to me by an Auntie many many years ago.

This card features an image from Delicious Doodles, called "On the lookout" perfect image for this time of card.  Coloured with copic pens and diecut, typed and punched sentiment completed the card.

Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Anything Goes - January 2018

Anything Goes this month, the sky is the limit.

I've decided to keep a scrap/junk journal for 2018.  I did an A3 size one for 2014 and not only thoroughly enjoyed doing it, but love to look back to see all the amazing things that happened in 2014.  It was also a sad year as I did attend more than one funeral, the saddest my Dad's funeral a couple of days before Christmas, but the journal does hold snippets about Dad through the year that are great memories.

This journal has been made with envelopes (6.5 x 9) and today I have the cover to share with everyone.  The image is from Bugaboo and is called "Frame It Happiness".

Coloured with copic pens, glitter and liquid pearls. I has been mounted on a flap that swings back so I can do some journalling.

Added flowers, butterflies and a dragonfly.  It will be interesting to see if i can get a whole year into this smallish journal and if the envelopes hold up for 12 months.
