A little bit of Monica, Erica, Rita, Tina …. and a video !

I don’t know why, but Mambo Number 5 popped into my head while working on my This & That Journal ! So I did a google search for the lyrics, and can only think that its because I keep calling it ‘A Little Bit of This & That’ !  Anyway, the song is stuck in my head, and I’m ‘mambo-ing’ all over the place …

So yes, you’ve read right – I’ve started my journal. I decided in the end to do a journal of my favourite things as it covered base with a wealth of topics … my family, my friends, my favourite places, food, clothes, handbags etc. etc…. This led me on to thinking about completing a ‘mood journal/book’, or a special event journal as I have a couple of  special events coming up).  That then led me into thinking about when I was a little girl, and how I loved the now, old fashioned scrapbooks when I used to cellotape EVERYTHING into it … my friends daughters would all love to do something like this – so I can imagine a very expensive Christmas coming up !!  Thankfully, the bundles are on offer at the moment – 15% discount, so I am going to order a couple extra while the offer is on.

I now have a HUGE headache from all this thinking that I’ve been doing !

This & That Part 1

Anyway, these are the pages that I’ve completed to date, and I hope you like what I have done with them.  I chose to grunge this journal to within an inch of its life, but intend to make the next ones very pretty-pretty !

Once I work out how to edit the second video to shorten it, I’ll show you how I made the covers, in stages.

As always, if you would like to place an order, or if you have any questions or queries, please contact me on or 07747 465186

Happy Crafting !   Cal xxx
