The LRW challenge this week was to use red and bling. A Valentine was certainly in order. I used Little Yellow Bicycle papers and embellishments and red bling and velvet ric rac from my wagon. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I have long admired the gorgeous coloured images that others do create on cards with Copic markers. I resisted the new technique, hoping that it would just be a passing fade and I could save myself lots of money! But I finally took the plunge on Friday and attended an intro class at TSF. I bought my first 6 markers and learned some shading and blending techniques. Clearly I need tons more practice but here are three cards I made out of my first colouring attempts. Thanks Joanne and Dee for all the encouragement! I also used some fun K&Co. chipboard elements on the cards for this week's LRW challenge.

I always struggle to fit my journalling in my travel pages, especially those first and last days of a trip. You know the ones that seem to go on forever, depending on where you are flying? The latest challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends is to use tons of journalling, so I knew this was the challenge for me. This is our return trip from Germany last March break. I printed the journallling on vellum so it wouldn't overwhelm the page, and I knew it would coordinate well with the acetate embellishments from Making Memories.
This photo is of our luggage. We always travel carry on only. So I thought it was a nice snap shot of that. Of course I think it is nearly impossible to do that now with the new security measures!
