As we have just had the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic there are images everywhere. I have used the Altered pages Titanic collage sheet 297 to make this tag as my tribute to that great ship and all who lost their lives that night.

When I was 5 journal page

The prompt I chose this week for the AJC was what did you want to be age 5? That was an easy question for me I wanted to be an Air Hostess! The photo is of me in my school uniform, St Anthony's Convent school in Sherborne Dorset. This was our summer uniform, complete with straw boater! I am stood outside our little house built for me and my sister by our Pop and Uncle Ken in our garden, complete with opening windows and furniture.
My " My life" journal page has been featured on Tangie Baxter's blog! Tangie is the tour guild of the Art Journal Caravan and a Queen of the Art Journal. What an honour!

Queen for the day canvas

I just love these Vintedge papers from  Rudy Rock it from the Fruit Pixie. I have the Collection pack and it is going such a long way. One of the things I have done with it is this Queen for the day 8x8 canvas. I used one of my many images I love to use be it could so easily be a family photo and made into a scrapbook page. If you would like to see how it was made then visit The Fruit Pixie Face book page

My life journal page

After all the colour of my previous Art journal Caravan pages I wanted to do a simple page without using too much colour. The challenge I chose was your life in 3 sentences. I think so far this is one of my favourite pages.

Coffee cup Holder book

I actually bought a take away coffee the other day and kept the corrugated holder for thinking Iam sure I could do something with that. Well I came up with this little book. I used the lovely Muca collage sheet from Altered Pages to decorate the front.

Birthday cards for the men

I am very busy over the Easter time for birthday cards, all of them mens cards. Here are 2 I made, one for my brother -in - law and the other for a friend.

TV Birthday card

I made this cute TV birthday card for my nephews birthday from the Looney Tunes CDrom. There are loads to choose from and and great fun to make. They do take a bit of adjustment to get them to work how they should but got there in the end. They fold flat to post too.
