Firstly let me apologise for the quality of the following photos. I'm still coming to grips with the fact that one minute we are wallowing in bright sunshine and the next minute the light has dropped like a curtain. I did the after school pickup, some grocery shopping and basically wasted time until I realised that despite the fact that I had done lots in the crafty way today I had not recorded any of it so with dying daylight I raced outside, dropped the album on some bark chips and started photographing. Didn't have time to take the photos and cards out of the sleeves so some yucky reflections, wonky lines and strange colours but it is what it is.
So back to NSD, l love the idea that there is a day dedicated to memory keeping, I don't scrapbook as such anymore but love the process of project life. Over the years I have tweaked my style here and there until I have come to something that I am comfortable with and can maintain, which to me is the most important thing. My PL style is quite linear (although that's hard to tell here with the wonky shots), with a few embellishments and quite a few more stamps. I've always loved stamping from the very first time I picked up a stamp and ink pad and realised that I could use these two tools to create so many different looks. When Kellie Winnell of Kellie Stamps announced on facebook a few days ago that she would be doing a day of challenges and blog hop I was excited at the thought of joining in. Some of the challenges were to use stamps on photos-check, stamping with different coloured inks-check and creating journaling cards with stamps-check. I managed to get 5 1/2 pages done in one afternoon and would have loved to keep going but motherly duties called.
All stamps used are by Kellie Winnell Kelly Purkey and Ali Edwards with a bit of Studio Calico in for good measure.
