A bit of this and a bit of that...

Ahhhh. Finally it is half term and that makes me happy :-)  Here is a journal page I created in my A5 moleskine art journal to mark the occasion. All images and borders are by the wonderful Marsha of Tumblefish studios at Deviant Scrap. Marsha has now recreated all of her images as jpg files, so cut and paste collage artists will be happy! See here.

This is what it looked like before I journaled all over it:

Now, somebody thinks I am trendy! Woop woop! I got this 'trendy blog' award off the lovely and talented Suzie who redesigned my blog for me a while ago. I'm not sure if she is just testing me .... to see if I can finally add an image to my scrolling marquee using html code. Gawd knows she has sent me instructions often enough! Er..... well, don't hold your breath ... I'll do my best! Thanks for thinking of moi Suzie :-))

I am to award to 10 others with a trendy blog, which is actually very tricky as I do visit a lot of trendy blogs. Hmmmm, here goes:

Dyan at Art and Soul
Sarah at Sarah Haslam
Cathy at Pieces of me

Now just look at this. I adore this! My 7 year old son made this for me this week. He calls it onion man. Do you think he's got Teesha Moore tendencies?

Bye for now. Have a good weekend all.
