CJ Madness!

Well its been a while since I have Blogged because I have been busy with placement and applying for jobs. So fingers crossed that whn I finish uni at the end of September I will have a job to go too.

I have joined with a group of women who subscribe to the Cleo crafts monthly kit, to do a CJ. Mine is all about favourite music. I used the July Cleo crafts kit to decorate this book that I got from Paperchase. The kit consisted of papers from Basic Grey's Lime Rickety Collection plus lots of ribbons and mbellishments.

This is my DLO of Musicals and Meat Loaf. I love my dymo machine, I find it is great for doing sub titles on CJs or minibooks.

I have included a CD for each person in the CJ to add a few of their favourite tracks to. Can't wait to get it back in 10 months time.

The next pictures are of my DLO for the '1993' CJ. I found it really hard to choose what to do as people had already done alot of my ideas. I remember studying the 1993 mississippi floods when I did my Geography A level so thought it was a good topic.

This is my DLO for the 'Make a Wish' CJ in NIP's Sketch CJ on UKS. I decided not to choose something like where I would like to live in the future etc... I choose a more adventurous wish, for there to be an end to HIV/AIDS in the world. I have spent some time in Pune, India where 1.9% of the population are HIV positive and an organisation called Deep Griha are trying to suppport people and educate them regarding health, discrimination and stopping its spread.

Am now off to sent these CJs to their next participants and to keep the post office in business. Hopefully do some more scrapping today.
