The three smaller photos have journalling on the back of them, they are attached to ribbons and held in place with mini magnets so that the photos can be lifted and the journalling read. This is also so that the photos don't flap about all over the place. I used Karen Foster and Doodlebug rub-on's, Buttons (Foof-a-La of course) and some new ribbons I bought last week.
LOads of LadyBirds in amongst to journalling.

- Four of something - 5 points - purple buttons
- Use yellow - 10 points - mounting CS for mini photos
- Use water/stars/space theme - 5 points - star buttons used
- Use up some scraps - 10 points - all but the CS is scraps.
This is a Scrap lift from a LO on UKS. I really love the bold colours against the black CS. very happy with this!!!! uses Imaginisce papers ribbons from my stash box and a flower stamp I've had for years, Doodlebugs Rub-ons, Prima flowers and Foof-a-la buttons
I love the look of this journaling and would never have thought of using all different stickers, rub-ons and writing on so many different fonts.
I really love this!!!!

I used up the last of my purple, sage green and lilac Primas and finished off a packet of PM jewels. I so want a bejeweler! I think that will have to be my next buy.
And a little red ladybird squeezed in amougst the flowers.
I used them on this LO to outline a K&Co paper heart. This is Suki-Su all over Perfect!
Well she thinks she is............ ;)
I love these BoBunny Rub on's, after trying to use PM rub on's (Nooooooooooooooo........ never again will I use them!!!) these BoBunny ones are a real treat to use, they transfer beautifully and come in so many lush designs. Here is the finished LO.
I inked all the edges which is still a little new to me. I really went for it with this LO and wiped the ink pad across the main part of the paper. I enjoyed using this technique and am very happy with the effect.
Sadly no bug on this one.
I will have to go bug hunting again for some non-red LB's
Just love this view.
the man and the scenery
Shame about my face!!! I think I was calling Maggie back form the woods.
Trav on the tree
The girls love the beach down here. it's best when the tide is high as other wise they will run through tons of sludgy mud and clay to get to the shore. but at high tide it's really very pleasant. Just a short gravelly beach and nice clear and clean water for them to play in. Sploshing about waiting for me to throw a stickSuki shouting about something???????
Back at home now settled in front of the telly watching the gorgeous Lewis Hamilton win the German grand prix (just 4 laps to go drive safe Lewis, drive safe)
