Hello Everyone

First of all I want to let you all into a little secret that I can now share. My partner in Crime, Cathy van de Bruinhorst, and I have taken over the blog at Feeling Sketchy as of 1 October. The lovely Debi Clark who has been running the blog is staying on with us as a Sketch Designer. It would be great if you could visit the blog and check out our challenges and maybe play along... We have TWO card sketches - posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and a layout sketch posted on the 3rd of the month. We have a great Design Team and they have created some lovely inspiration for you all, and I would love it if you could hop on over and check it all out.
I haven't done much scrapping this week. What with my daughters engagement and all the excitement of an up-coming wedding I have not done anything.
I did however, sometime in all this excitement, finish this project life layout.
Have I told you how much I love this style of scrapping.... lots of photos, lots of journalling, clean and simple style, with a bit if mixed media thrown in... perfect match for me.
Here is the first one.

It is from our last trip down to Uvongo. I have added some of my favourite photos from the trip and my journalling.

Here are a couple of close ups.

Some splats and a stamp. 'In dreams we catch glimpses of life larger than our own.'

What I love about project life is that I can add these random  photos that I love to take just because.

Highlights from our week down there. This style for me is ALL about scrapping the everyday details that make up our lives.



  1. How exciting for you Val. Another challenge on your scrapping journey. I will be sure to pop across and have a look. Your PL double is the perfect way to scrap multiple photos and record your precious memories. I've not gone down that track yet, but I can see the benefits :D

  2. lovely project life pages, I am so addicted to it . I like this style you did, funny little touches. And now I take a look at the sketchy blog! Have a great weekend! x

  5. Ooooh how exciting Val!! I will definitely pop over and check out those challenges. Love your PL pages, I have been meaning to have a go at some for ages but somehow haven't found time yet, they look like such a fun and speedy way to scrap a lot of pics and include journaling and stuff. Thanks for the inspiration and have fun with Feeling Sketchy, I know you will do an amazing job :o)
