When I need to talk...

I turn to my sister Katy, my best friend Rosie, and my Mum. They make me laugh and they sympathise with me, and they're not afraid to be silly with me either! The latest challenge at Journaling Junkies is to journal about your inner circle of friends, the special people that you rejoice or commiserate with. Aside from my husband, it is definitely these three girlies that would be the first on my list to chat to when I need to share news, good or bad. I hope I did them justice with my layout (click on the photo to see it larger):


Thanks for being my girls!

This was my final layout for my guest stint at Journaling Junkies. I've had a great time there, and worked with some brilliant ladies, so thanks for the opportunity to Stefanie and the team. (If you'd like to see the layout on the JJ blog, or join in with the challenge yourself, click here.)

The large flowers on my layout were handmade from scraps of paper, they took a while to make but were totally worth it I think. Here's some close-ups:



I've used more to make a card for my gran, which I should be able to post tomorrow with a tutorial so you can see how to make these flowers too if you'd like! I'm also hooked on creating spiral felt flowers at the moment, but that will have to wait for another day! x

P.S. Only one day left to enter my blog giveaway! See the link on the top of the sidebar for details if you've missed it so far!
