Speaking of sharing , here is my layout for the first sketch for March over at BLACK MAGIC SKETCHES. I won't reveal any more of the criteria...you will have to go have a looksie for that! This is my awesome nephew Jonathon...he is a funny man:) I can see him growing up to be a dare-devil, into fast cars like his Aunty Shelly and Uncle Jacob, and a girl stopper!!!! Next is my first March DT piece for SONGBIRD SCRAPS! I absolutely love the way this layout turned out!!!The Kaiser pps are smashing, and I love the colours!Bianca has been teaching her little sister to ride without training wheels lately, and this day, Aleisha had finally started to get the hang of it:)Turning corners is still proving to be a mission, but practise makes perfect,lol! I just love it when I can get photos of them playing together peacefully...quite a feat!!!
My week 5 layout for the TRUE BLUE AUSSIE SCRAPPING COMP at Forever always. This one we had to draw inspiration from either the Daintree(green,one other colour, tree/frog, and embossing) or The Alps. I went for the first theme, as I didn't have any photos left that I thought would be suitable for an all white theme.This is my Meg when she was little...now she is a big, white hairy beast!!!Again, Kaiser pps, and I just adore the owls!!! I was really happy with this one...and then disaster struck. :( I finished this layout on Saturday morning before work. I left it on my table, and merrily went on my way. When I came home, I kid you not, my layout was bent in half like a banana. Oh, I was livid!!!!The glue I used has evidently shrunk back, and ruined it....grrrrrrr....so pissed off!!!!In the last week, I have had rubons that won't adhere, and now Scrapbooker's glue that has wrecked my page. Not happy Jan!!!! I normally don't use this glue much, it's just that I had a larger area of fiddly cut out to adhere.....grrrr. That's my whinge for today!
On a happier note, I won the most FANTASTIC, FABULOUS prize!!!!I never really go into blog candy type draws, I usually forget to leave comments, and such. Weeellll, I have been eagerly following the goings on, and GORGEOUS new releases over at DARKROOM DOOR. If you haven't been for a visit there, Rachel has gorgeous new stamps just released. well, I got excited, and loved what I saw(I have a couple of her sets, and papers too) and decided to leave comments. I won one of the new releases!!!!!The Wilderness Set Vol 2 is the set I have won!!!! To say I am excited is an understatement!Cannot wait to have a play with those...they have fabbosentiments, and beeeyyooootiful, crisp images. Thankyou Rachel and Stewart, you have made my day!
