Top Five

Today’s prompt in my blogging course is to write a list of things that inspire you. So I thought I’d share my top five songs on my play list that I have on repeat right now.


1. Lea Michele’s version of Take a Bow from Glee


2. Alexandra Burke and Flo Rida  Bad Boys


3. Donna Lewis & Richard Marx  At the Beginning (from Anastasia)


4. Chuck Wicks – What If You Stay


5. Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me



There is my list of songs.

Blogging for Scrapbookers

I decided today to sign up for Shimelle’s class  because my blog has been sadly neglected. When I started it back when I was taking a class from Jessica Sprague I had every intention of updating several times a week but never got around to it. So I thought this class would make me work towards posting at least a few times a week, even if I’m the only person who reads it.




Today’s prompt was to write about what you wanted to get out of this class. Thinking about it I want to have the stories I want to remember written down so I can go back and scrapbook them later. I want to put my thoughts and scrapbook pages somewhere where I will have a record of them and I want to write something that maybe someone will one day read. But for now it’s baby steps and getting back in the habit of writing something other than fanfiction on a daily basis.

So does anyone else share my Glee addiction?

I have repeatedly watched the first episode all summer eagerly awaiting the series. Some of it was a little disappointing but I like the whole Rachel / Finn relationship or at least where it is going.

I’ve also developed an addiction for this song. ITunes tells me that I’ve listened to it 60 times in the last week, and the original version by Rhianna 30 times. Enjoy

More project 365 photos

  And that brings us up to yesterday

Saturday, 13 June 2009


I thought I’d share with you some of my recent layouts. They have all been completed using sketches from various sources. The idea of a sketch is a little map of where to put your pictures and elements you can either stick to it religiously or you can adapt it make it your own. Sketches can be turned to create a whole new look.

Some good sources of sketches are Becky Higgins (the queen of sketches) over at or from Page Maps .

This pages is based on a sketch from the final issue of Simple Scrapbooks and uses the Weeds & Wildflowers Kit Life is Good.


This layout uses this months sketch from the Celebrate the Seasons class over at it is made with various kits from Club Scrap, Weeds & Wildflowers and Scrapgirls.

This layout is from a sketch from from their sketches for Basic Grey. It uses the  Jake & Emma kit from


On a similar vein Club Scrap has a system called ASLB when you create the layout first then add pictures using carefully planned cutting instructions which are free to members with every monthly kit. But even if the design you want to use is made with one kit you can easily substitute the elements from a totally different kit.

This layout uses an ALSB formula and the Life is Good kit from Weeds and Wildflowers (a totally different look from Coco which uses the same kit)

So sketches – you’ve got to love something that helps save the time and guess working of a layout so more memories can get scrapped.
