Sarah Hurley 365 - PL WEEK 1

Ooooft what a horrible day, all this rain yet it was toastie hot yesterday! I even managed to spent time in the garden. Ok it was doing a tidy up but still enjoyable.

Today it's my turn to post on The Sarah Hurley 365 blog
and my post should prove that it's never too late to start Project Documented 365.

Ideally I should be showing you an up to date page for 2014 but it's just never happened. In fact I hadn't even started it, still finishing off last year and we are almost into the month of May eeeeeeeek! So I hid in my craftroom which was perfect as I couldn't see the mountain of washing that was awaiting lol

I hadn't a colour scheme in mind, I just sifted through my stash and when I saw the blue and white journal card it seemed perfect. I pulled together this to get me started.


The only addition here is the text 'JANUARY' from Sarah's stamp set which proves that you can keep you layouts simple and perfect for when we are playing catch up!


A little tip, you don't always have to use photographs and you can still create fab layouts.

Here I just used text and die cuts.

My ticket from the Aladdin pantomine


Don't be tempted to throw away those off cuts.

Now I have arrows!


Here are a few close ups

Finally my finished layout.

Good morning and welcome to my blog!

Our challenge this month is hosted by the very talented Ria and she has chosen the them of


It can be real or faux it is entirely up to you.

I love these papers from Sarah's 'Few of My Favourite Things Kit.

It was also the first time I got to play with my latest release Fairy stamps. To see your own design made into a stamp is just the most wonderful thing.

The images I used are from the Flower Fairy set, available to buy here at Sarah Hurley's online shop

Thankyou for stopping by
