Sneaky Peeky...

Hi folks....yes, I know I am fashionably late, but I had to get some sleep! I was absolutely exhausted, so decided that rather than half-assed scrapping, I would have an early night or two, and get back into it! As promised, here is a sneak peek into my layout for March - from BLACK MAGIC sketches....All will be revealed on the first of March, but let me say this...the first sketch is AWESOME!!!!!! I was stoked that I finally got to scrap some photos of a special nephew who always misses his time in the limelight somehow. I will post my Songbird sneaky as soon as I have finished fluffing about with my layout, just a few bits of fine-tuning left to do:)So you will have to wait...sorry:)
I had a humungous weekend scrapping my head off, for the cybercrop over at FOREVER ALWAYS. Awesome fun, and this time I finally got to play bingo!!!Yahoo- every single time it is on, I miss out:( This weekend though, I got to play, what a laugh!!!!Great fun, and a big thankyou to gorgeous Paula for staying sane, while we FA ladies went beserk!!!! I was so excited when i had a win too- woohoo!This is my layout for Challenge#4 from the cc. We had to use lyrics from a song,a heart, and a bottlecap- "You Light Up My Life" was my take.

For the second challenge, we had to use some form of hybrid scrapping, stitching,and family/friends as inspiration. Mr Giraffe, you have been scrapped!!!!!I had a visit from my friend of over sixteen years, Rob, a.k.a Giraffe.Thanks again for my fabbo stubby cooler for the bar Mr Raffe, and for being my friend through thick and thin:)I hope you like the layout-of course it had to have something to do with Holdens!!!!!:)))

The emblem was cut on our signcutter by my beloved Jacob, so that was the hybrid bit taken care of! For those that aren't aware, I really suck on a computer,lol!I also used a clothing tag from a shirt of mine,yes, I am a Holden fan too!
Started my Photography course last night, and it is excellent! I found my 450D very daunting, so many controls, and even after reading the manual a bit, I was lost.Last night, after some excellent tuition, the penny dropped, and now I am really looking forward to exploring the camera so much more!!!We have a field trip in two weeks, and I can't wait!
Alas, I must leave you now, but not without saying a big thankyou to all who leave me comments here, it is so nice of you to drop in and say hi! I am just trying share my work, have fun, and hopefully bring a smile too. Don't forget to check out the fabulous challenges on offer at my fave haunts... which reminds me, go check out DARKROOM DOOR,they are having a giveaway on their new products, for ten days- awesome stuff that Rachel has designed. I have loved her work ever since I started scrapping, she is super talented! Now I know where to find her I will have to put some more links in.
Thanks also to super,fabbo, lovely Renae, for all of her support-gorgeous lady!!!xxxoooo

Beautiful work Shelly!!
I can't show any sneak peeks yet for the Songbirds, because I haven't finished yet, I barely even started... I'm having some problems with this one, it's just not turning out the way I want it to... I'd better give it another try right away!
