Art Journal page..

I am sorry I haven't been around much this last week.. I've been suffering from a chest infection.. boy, did it wipe me out! I am happy to say I am coming out the other side of it now.. & feel like crafting again!

I have been so busy this weekend as both of my little boys celebrate their birthdays just one day apart.. worn out last night but just needing to 'do' a little something before bed.. I made this page..

I have had so much fun playing with my new DT stamps from Stampotique Originals.. the stamps are so wonderfully, deeply etched they are a real pleasure to work with.. it was nice to let my muse just play for a while & take it's own path.. & while I hop from cutesy to grungey I worry if my creations will be okay for the challenges ahead.. My daughter & bestest friend told me like it is... & I used her words as an affirmation on my page....

The stamps I used from Stampotique Originals are...

6050 Relaxin'
6119 Hanging Hearts
6090 Picket Fence
6112 Tree
6117 Birds and Bug Cube
3028 Swirl Stalks

Lots of inking & stamping & getting messy before bed! ... I've got some words at the front of my little moleskine journal that I started at the begining of the year & they are so true...

How very true!... don't you just love Two Sticks

I felt so much more relaxed & ready to settle down for the night. :)

Thanks for calling & leaving a comment if you get the chance.. 

Wishing you a lovely Sunday. Gez
