May 123 Challenge

Such a long time since I've blogged!

As most of you probably know by now, I have been in hospital since February having intensive chemotherapy for leukaemia (A.L.L.), so my scrapping output has been just about zero.

I have a small trolley of supplies with me, and just lately, I have managed to get a couple of things done.One of them was the May challenge at the 123 Challenge blog.

 It's not often I attempt an A4 size for my scrapping, but someone had sent me a present with some pieces of really thick cardboard used as protection, and I wanted to really get stuck into the background with lots of inks and texture paste, so it was perfect for the job because then I wouldn't have to worry about warping (which is one of my pet hates).

Here's how it ended up....

The criteria for this month is the colour GREEN, the word TIME and the technique JOURNALLING.

I created the texture in the background by using corrugated cardboard and one of my favourite Words Or Whatever altaMATZ with texture paste.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope I will be more productive in the coming weeks so I will have more to share for next time. 


  1. Sue, this is fantastic. I love all the background work you've done, the chippy clocks look great. But it's your journaling that makes this really special. It's great that you can sometimes feel like scrapping. Xxxx

  2. Well done Sue on creating this masterpiece, I love your journalling, and that photo.. I do hope you are feeling well this week and I am praying for your recovery and healing too.. I hope you get to do some more scrapping and can share it with us!! take care.. xxlizzy

  3. Wow, Sue, you are amazing! This is my first visit to your site and I'm blown away by your creativity! I can't imagine creating something so cool in my own home and you did it from a hospital bed! I hope you continue to feel well enough to create more. I will be praying the chemo is easy (or at least tolerable) for you and time goes quickly while you are there.

  4. Hi Sue, my first time visit to your site as well. Love this piece you've created and Sandra is right the journaling is what makes it that more special. I know the drill, I recently reduced myself to taking pictures of the waiting room that I had seen for the past 7 years, nothing had changed maybe it will over the next years. I hope you treatments go as well as they can wish that your road to recovery will be soon.
