Me time

These two journal pages have been  work in progress for some time. I started with good intentions with the base stamping, colouring  and the usual mopping up of excess inks. Then somehow the preparations for Christmas crept up on me.

I decided on a little me time today to add some bits and pieces.   A couple of Graphics 45 images, material scraps, die cuts etc . The quote  which is a bit hard to read on the photo says--Style is a simple way of saying complicated things.
I am still working out what that could  mean to the look of this thrown together collage page.
So with that in mind I only used two single words on the other page.  Memories and thoughts, two precious words that can mean so much to us all in many ways.

Thank you for stopping by, I do so appreciate you taking the time to  pop in.


  1. Love your "me time" and the journal pages are gorgeous and classy! I have bits and pieces and maybe I just should start adding them and start a journal! Love this and glad you found some time to play! I figure the next few days will be all abut finishing for Christmas! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
