    OK - a round of OMG's is happening here about Cadbury World. Off to check now as we hadn't even thought about it. We would have just gone in the morning. Cheers for that - Sarah to the rescue...again!

    it's because they only left a handful of people in at a time, so you have timed entrance tickets. if you book or reserve in advance (I use Tesco vouchers to pay so I just phone and reserve beforehand and actually settle up when I get there) they will give you your time slot over the phone, so then you just need to get there 20 mins or so before that to collect your tickets

    but if you just turn up they will give you the next available timeslot which can be ages away

    we found that out the hard way the first time we went and had to spend 2 and a half hours playing in the playground outside (in a light rain shower ) before we could go in.... mind you, that was in the school hols so it was extra busy

    and here's what you have to look forward to - the not-exactly-white-knuckle chucklebean ride!

    Thorpe Park it ain't, but it's still a fun day out. I love the smell of cholocate that hits you as soon as you drive into the car park!

    neat pic! I have been before - once. Dh took me for a mystery day out for my birthday in 2003 I think it was. I loved it, even the ride..we just giggled lots. It was also the middle of the week during term time so it was empty.

    I didn't know you could use tesco vouchers - we have tons, but too late for tomorrow (and don't tell me different please as I've just paid). Printed out our tickets to get in in teh afternoon. Very little left for saturday but Sunday is a pain with needing to either get up silly early or get back late and my two ain't good on a monday morning as it is.

    Right, better get ready for a run...eeek (another subject to journal.."oh the pain" I think) then I'm going to crack open one of those A4 watercolour moleskines...over due perks I think!

    OOOOOH! - what's a pink pig?!?!

    Anyone got ideas for a good text book for complete beginners? I need lots of tips and inspiration. I am hoping to combine collage, stamping doodling, lots of texture and some sparkle! Don't want much, do I? lol!

    I'd say the best thing for ideas, tips and inspiration is to have a nosey around the blogs of people who art journal and see what they're doing. The best way to "learn" though is to just have a go!

    I have a few PP journals - they are great but I would deffo give a light gesso to the pages first. Some pens may bleed and some inks do too if the page is over saturated.

    The pink pig jpurnals are good quality and a very good price. You can buy sketchbooks or watercolour. The only thing I don't like is that they are all wire bound.

    You can get them personalised now too ie design your own cover and have it printed

    molly moleskine are a bit more expensive and i have only just dared to make a mark in mine. My first journal was a cheap sketch book with a good weight paper from the works. I think i paid something like 3.99 for it, and didnt have the fear of spoiling that. I really think anything with a good weight of paper is ok to start with............but thats just my opinion of course

    Thanks - that was my thoughts - try something I am not frightened of the cost of a piece of paper and ruining it

    Play on some scraps then first, or just get a cheap sketch pad/watercolour pad to have a play with. Art Journalling is very "no rules", and if you don't like what you've done, gesso over it and start again. Simples (as they say) If you scarpbook you'll find art journalling very freeing.
