Journal Page and Card

 Hi Everyone. I hope it is nice and sunny where you are as it is here. Thank you for calling in-you are always welcome at Jumbled Crafts.

At Art Journal Journey this month the theme is Journeys.

Here is my second journey for the challenge and it came to mind after thinking about the three visits I did last year to the top of the Great Orme. This year the plan is to get to the top of Snowdon but that is a much harder climb and I may be tempted to go half way up on the little train. I am still using the supermarket magazine for my pages this month.

At Make My Monday this week the challenge is Party Paraphernalia

I made this card for a neighbour. The centre design is a photograph I took of some party paper napkins and I added balloons to that. Used up some peel-offs as well as I found them hiding in a drawer.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Gorgeous card for your neighbour, and another wonderful journal page of you toiling up the mountain! Thanks so much for joining us at AJJ! Hugs, Valerie

  2. I love your ramble up the mountain - the birds and insects flying around the figure making their way up to the views at the top. Great depth to the forest and lovely flowers in the foreground. And the balloons make for a fab celebration! Good luck with Snowdon!

  3. I love your page. What a great idea. I wouldn't have thought of that but that's what so great about these challenges, seeing what other people think of. I just watched a show on tv the other night about Snowdon National park and climbing the mountain. Good luck- I hope you do it! Thanks for joining us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

  4. Adorable chrissie, always a lovely place to visit. ,all these sweet colours just love it.xx

  5. Your page is amazing too! I can just imagine those views as the walk up looks great! Even though we are not far from Wales it's not a direction we take very often although we did mention that we might this Summer! Not up Snowdon though!! Hugs, Chrisx

  6. Your creations are beautiful Chrissie ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  12. A fabulous journal page Chrissie, I think I would have to take the train to get to the top of Snowdon. The birthday card looks lovely, a real cheerful image.
