{21 day challenge! Day 1}


Here gos i am taking part in Rhonna Farrers 21 day challenge! Its all about breaking Habits and achieving goals the theory is that you are suposed to be able to change and break a bad habit in just 21 days, and the idea is to do this with a creative journal to encourage , inspire you and pass the time while you change!
I have decided there is too much i want to change so i will be glad of any improvement and the chance to experiment daily (which is good practise for my creativity and at least my blog will be updated!)
I have just done my first lo and already i want to do more but i have other commitments ( this is me changing "find time for other/ find time for me!") I have learnt that i don't like writing on textured card , so i will be using something else tomorrow. Look out for the varied colours as i can't decide on a theme so i will do something different everyday and learn something new about me!!!!

Best of the British winner!



I can't believe it i'm a winner of best of the British winner i found out the week before last but could'nt tell anyone, I was so chuffed i won what an achievement, I got an email telling me i had one i kept checking it to see if it was real!.
My sister also won that was really wierd she has a different surname to me and entered because i told her about it , shes glad she did!
We headed off to the stitch and craft show in london today to view the other winners they were all great. We spoke with Joanna Cambell Slan who founded the competion and saw all the layouts they were all great!
The show was a bit packed but overall a good day we had our photos put on the cover of scrapbook inspirations for a laugh but then got collered by the editors for a photo of us holding them for the mag, so sorry you might have to put up with our ugly mugs again!

Sunday 19th March

lazy day today had so much to think about and so much going on , can't tell yet will let you know in due course!
I really don't seem to get much done , i buy stuff all day long and don't do anything with it if i do a layout its with something that i bought ages ago or i use my scraps! i must set my self a new target 10 lo's before i buy anymore stuff, but that doesnt include the new rub on paper i've seen or the vintage copyright cd i've found, just imagine vintage rubons! oh wel at least if i allow myself to splurge i should up the target to 11 layouts (thats one vintage style!)
I think i am going to enter Kirstys scrap yourself challenge as seen on her blog
www.limegreenbogiegirl.blogger.com She done fantastic getting so many people involved . Watch this space!
