GPP Crusade 30 - Cat Got Your Tongue?


This month's challenge at Green Pepper Press is to journal - actually WRITE DOWN the things that are part of the story in your journal page.

I jumped into it when I was looking for a sun stamp for another project. I found I had quite a few. Well, that's a story to tell - where did they all come from? So that became a journal page.



I enjoyed tracing the origin of the stamps - after all, everything comes from somewhere! Then I added a little stamping, cos the page needed it.

Might need to add some swirls - or some other texture. But I don't want to lose the sun stamps, cos that's the while point!

Pauline said...

Ha ha! Well, I actually had it ready two hours ago, but we were having a thunderstorm and I had to turn the computers off!

It helps that I'm in Australia, and your challenge arrived at a very civilised 9am.

I only have one sun punch, but I think there's at least one more stamp in there...

Thanks for the challenges, they are fun!

Fabulous! I love celestial motifs, although now that I think about it, I don't have any sun stamps. You've got some really beautiful ones. Great pages :)

Pauline - love this layout - hmmm how many sun stamps do I have - maybe four or five. Amazing because I have never stopped to think how many I have. Love your pages. Marlynn

Hmm, I'm not really a stamper but I do own a sun stamp. Who can resist them? I don't know how you remember where you got most of them, though. I never would. Great idea for a little journaling!

Very funny, and beautiful too. Can you imagine, I don't have a single sun stamp? I better get at least one, thanks for the inspiration.

So simple, yet it says so much. Really beautiful.

Just came across the crusades, and I think I may jump in on this one.

I love all of those sun stamps. The background color is also fabulous.

After reading your journal/post here I went and counted I have at least 4 sun stamps that I could find :) I live in Florida, we are addicted to the sun! Love your page.
