About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Not Just cards challenge 23 - journal page

It is time for another anything goes challenge at Not Just cards (but cards are welcome)

Our sponsors for this month are:
Delightful Digis
Diddy Bag
Milk Coffee
SLS Lines
Julia Spiri Digital stamps

I received some lovely images from Diddy Bag
Kitchen Bears clip art and
8331 in the Kitchen 02 Scrap Kit

I have made a journal page using papers and pre coloured images and sentiments from the Diddy Bag sets, with a copy of my mother's Boiled fruit cake recipe and photo of my Mum, myself and my two daughters taken in 1980.

My mum used to make lots of Boiled fruit cakes during the year and at Christmas.  My two daughters are now using her recipe with their own changes.
So I have done this page as a memory of my mum.
This is only the second page I have done so far for my journal.  Joining the Not Just Cards Design team is inspiring me to do more.

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this to the following:
