Today is my Grand-daughter Elena's 17th Birthday. It's at times like this that you really do realise that time flies, I can remember in every detail the day she was born, I cried buckets with happiness. I picked her up from College last Friday and told her that I had bought her a birthday card this time, I hadn't made it myself, she then told me that she had kept every card I had made her in the past! I then felt very guilty and so this weekend I made her this card. The background was made using my Gelli Plate, I actually made the background, amongst lots of others, last Wednesday at the lovely Kate's workshop. The image is a Suzi Blu which I think is perfect for a young girl. For a present I bought Elena a lovely Kelly Rae Roberts porcelaine doll called "LOVE"  It is based on the images that she uses for her paintings etc and is gorgeous but sorry I don't have a photo of it and now it is all wrapped up as I am going over to Huddersfield to pick Elena up from college so bye for now.

Hi everyone I hope you are all managing to keep warm in this awful snowy weather,I am hoping it is going to go pretty fast as I have a workshop to attend on Wednesday with the lovely Kate Crane. Well lets get down to the reason I am blogging and that is my first completed journal page of 2013. This is a new style for me as I normally go with Dyan or Kate. I have found some lovely blogs belonging to some Polish girls and I just love the way they journal, I was inspired by their art work to produce this double page spread in my A4 journal I hope you like it. I am afraid the poor lighting has changed the colour as it actually is a white background and the background the journal is layed on is also white.
