Happy Voices .... Diary Day week 25 .

 Friday is Diary Day and we are up to week 25

I really  am addicted to using napkins and could not resist this set coming home with me.
How cute are these two.. I did later think ... when will I ever use these.....
However when we had the warm sunny weather  last week it was good to hear the children playing in the gardens and parks when we were out and about..... Having fun.
 I remember my own boys loving being outdoors in our garden.

The page in the diary was already  coloured grey, which is also the base colour of the napkin. I added the stencils and a bit of random stamping.
Not the neatest of pages but I  don't mind.
I will join in at
  Art Journal Journey
 for  Gill's .....' Inspired by'..... theme
I was inspired by the  Happy Voices and sounds of children playing.

Thank you for calling in to see me today,
you are all always very welcome here.  


  1. I always love Diary Day at your place. It's always fun to see what you will come up with next. This week, the napkin won, and it's a perfect fit, too. I like how you blended it into the calendar/journal page. If that wasn't enough, you even found the PERFECT way to share it with us at Art Journal Journey, too! Thank you for that, dear.
