It's All About The Journey

I'm loving this artistic journey I'm on, and I'm finding myself fascinated by the twists and turns a journey can take, and how each new avenue leads to change, influence, adaptation and improvement. All those terms are subjective, obviously, but I really mean them in a sense of how happy I am with my creations and the direction they are heading in.

A journey can be so many different things.

This life journey I'm on, for example: I'm married now, and I feel like we can take on the world. We will go places together. 

All this and more fed into this layout as I was making it for this week's Punky Scraps sketch challenge. I wanted to pay homage to life and living, to enjoying and experiencing the journey as we are on it, not just after it's finished.

Don't you love it when you look at something you've made and it makes you happy? I used: Basic Grey Basics and Wander paper and Wander rubons, American Crafts Thickers and Toga Alphas, Sassafras Lass bunting sticker, Heidi Swapp Ghost Alphas, Glitz transparency, Echo Park For the Record journalling card, and Gauche Alchemy goodies (feather, sequins, plastic embroidery grid, map, foot paperclip, WOODGRAIN PUNCHINELLA!) 

how great is that foot paperclip?!

Go check out the sketch and the other DT members' awesomely punky work, and share a tiny slice of their journeys too.


  1. love that background paper! the bright colors feel so cheery on a day like today (dreary).

  2. Love all your little bits added, great background, gorgeous bright colours and sweet sentiment - so lovely.

  3. The splashes of blue and yellow on this are gorgeous! Of course I like all of it, but you know what I mean..

  4. This page is absolutely amazing! I love how you did the title and the overall design is just so creative!

  5. LOVE! The ghost alphas are FABULOUS!!! You really balanced the funky colors and prints from that BG line fantastically well- the photos, the design- everything is gorgeous! pinned and raved over.
    PS- the painting is also hella cool!

  6. So Fun and Fabulous page, Cheryl!!! love everything here!!!

  7. A work of art! great colours, and all so "together" Do you just "go with the flow"? or do you plan exactly where everything is going?
