Still Practising Gratitude!

I’m still following Bernice’s course, even if my pages don’t seem to be strictly based on her fabulous inspirational videos and links – what a treat it is to focus on our blessings. I just won’t have time to journal daily – unless I just do small things…

Sometimes life isn’t quite as easy as it is at others, but I know that being thankful to God for what I have is what keeps my head above water.

Life is a gift :-D


I’ve been enjoying playing with Twinklers after a few years away from them – they blend so well and layer up really easily.  I’ve also stamped with them underneath the black flutterbies, though you may not be able to see it – the pearlescent sheen is there.

I had a much needed playtime and intend to make time for some more this coming week – I have a few important things to create!

I also used acrylic inks when colouring these – I’ve only had them for around 12 years ;)  It’s great to put old stash to good use, though. Love these Stampendous butterflies.

The Stampalot Challenge this month is Anything Goes, so these will be my entries.

I just discovered that some of my journal pages made Number One in the Make My Monday Top Three – what a lovely surprise!  Thank you. VERY much – I’m honoured.
