Craftylicious

I've had quite a busy working weekend but thanks to lots of crafty time yesterday have a bit to share!
I made more of the aperture cards with the brackets because they are fun, quick and easy. And because I spend a little more time on most of my dares - and on scrap booking. I am running out of cards!
I completed my circle journal entry and sent it off - all on the last day possible! I was a bit stuck because the theme was "the visitor"and nice though Upminster is, it isn't really a place to visit. then inspiration struck... (but I can't tell you or show you because we are doing the big reveal when we get our journals back)
I did Shimelle's I have something to confess book. I loved doing this - and not just because I could talk about my favourite subject - me! It was a quick, effective and fun style of small book. You could do this for anything. I kept everything simple using some more of the lush December Self Addressed kit, Stamps Away journalling stamps, Heidi Swapp flowers, Basic Grey rub ons and a few robo'd flowers. I used acetate for the cover - which looks a bit blotchy with nothing much inside it but should protect the cover.
So here are all my secrets!
