The first being the challenge over at SCD, this month it is trinchies, this is new to me, but I though I would give it a go, the theme is Musical Instruments.
Well ok an Ipod is not really a muscial instrument, but kind of, let me have this one? I kept it simple to reflect the ipod adverts. I am pleased with my first ever trinchie.
This weekends mojo was given a boost by the package I recieved from the lovely Jamie(check her blog) from Handmade Love. I won the February monthly challenge and this was my prize, I think I may have squealed at the postman! I will have lots of fun doing projects with this little lot.
I also have been recieving my prompts from shimelle's online class, I am yet to do anything but have lots of ideas and have been loving the work of everyone else. I also have my document 2010 project ongoing aswell as a few other bits. I have not been talking many picture this months, so must get snap happy this week.
Well I am off while the mojo strikes............have a good week.

Over at the lovely Handmade Love blog another great challenge has been set, I am really enjoying the variety, this week it was to interpret the sketch featured on their blog. I am using their challenges to work on a number of different projects/albums I have on the go, this one is for my Document 2010 album, which I am following loosely from Shimelle.com and UKScrappers, hoping to have some documentation by December of the year.
This page is to show my resolution for this year, I decided to not make the normal, lose weight get fit ones and set one that I would enjoy, as you will see I have plenty of books to read. I noticed after photographing the layout the top photo is upside-down, I have corrected this now, but the light has gone to take another photo!! I found this a great sketch for using up scraps of patterned paper I had laying around, I also used my Cricut to full advantage to create the tittle and embellishment for this LO. (Printing Press and Cursive 101) I am super happy with this layout and thanks to the DT and Handmade Love for their inspiration.

The turquoise and grey pinstripe papers are cut from adverts found in a magazine. I like the effect as often magazine pages are glossy or finished different to the other papers. I also continued my passion for my new Martha Stewart punches. I will be keeping my eye out for patterns/elements in my magazines from now on.
This week I have also been loving the new Tim Holz book, and am keen to give all the techniques that are new to me a go. I am also doing well with my resolution to read more books, I have finished my first, I hope with work being less manic I can indulge my love of reading and stop my bookshelves creaking as much!
