Live Laugh Love....
This is my take on the talented Karen Burniston's 'Borderline' class at this month's Scrapaganza event. I made some adjustments for my version of it - such as the introduction of a lollipop stick to secure the blind and moveable gates which flip open etc I had fun with this one, especially the decoupage effect of the photos as they really pop out and I just love the new papers by Rhona Farrar (Autumn Leaves).




















And here is Karen's original DLO which I used to display a trip to Rome. It's a perfect travel LO as there are so many hiding places for photos and journalling...

































And on the subject of Scrapaganza - here are some of my projects...

My Claudine Hellmuth inspired Scrapaganza journal/planner - which I designed to keep me organised to hold my schedule, memorabila and photos...



















Dyan Reavely's perfect pearl's (Pearl Gearl) class. Great technique's!





























Then we have Lisa Bearnson's My simple Truth class - really enjoyed this as we wrote a poem for the internal journalling inside.










And I couldn't resist showing you my signed copy of CK by my good pal Lisa;-)

















This is Emily Adam's quirky little staggered book - nice papers and stickers used.













And a really cool class called Him and Her based on giant playing cards...loved this one!


















Finally another fav of mine -If I had a heart by Junkitz. It was a fantastic class -really generous kit with lots leftover. I used the poem for journaling by EE Cummings 'I carry your heart' which inspired me while watching ER last week:-)


















I had loads of fun at the Crop today so thanks to everyone who came along (especially Donna who was bombarded with her half price closing down sale!!! Wow the bargains were amazing! Thanks also to Linda of Kelly Crafts and Jackie for her fab watercolour demo. What a day!

These look fantastic! The top one with the kinda venetian blind effect is so intriuging! I have to see these in real life sometime!
