Last LO for the month... :)

I was madly trying to squeeze in this one last LO for the month for the June Sketch Challenge at N4D... I really wanted that part of the kit that was up for grabs for completing the challenge... :) I also found a great tutorial and learnt a new technique in creating a "hand cut" look... so I'm happy that I challenged myself in learning something new too... :)

This LO is based on the sketch found here -

First LO without a person it!

All my LOs to date are always people focused. So today for the first time, I scrapped a non-person LO... This CT gig is really challenging me to step outside of what I normally scrap (which is a good thing!) ... I actually did this for the Photography Challenge @ Nuts4Digi at the moment... Mousey challenged us to take a photo and scrap a landscape photo. Ok, so technically, this is more a "skyscape" than a landscape, but as little B and I were walking to car from the park, the gorgeous afternoon light was just shining so beautifully on the leaves of this tree and making it glow that I couldn't help taking a photo. If I had got some land into the photo it would have also contained some unattractive cars and an ugly building LOL! Last LO from me using the Nature Kit from Designs by Marguerite... I really do love this kit though...

A Spicy Surprise...

Nuts4Digi currently has this mega kit called "Spicy Surprise" out. It's full of lovely rich colours, lots of papers and elements and some fantastic templates. If you're in Australia and can get a copy of the latest Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 10 No 2), there is a little article in there about N4D and also a coupon to allow you to get this fabulous kit for *FREE*! It really is a fantastic deal...

Here's a preview -


And here's a LO I did with it (and also did for the Font Challenge at N4D this month) -

Back on the wagon...

I've been missing in action on the scrapping front for a few days... my sister and her husband came to visit us and stayed with us for 4 days... so I sacrificed scrapping time to spend time with them... (which also involved playing Mario Kart on the Wii... and I have discovered I am soooo bad at that game... it is still lots of fun, even when you play badly!)

I've been trying to catch up on stuff at N4D and trying do a bit of scrapping for the last two days ...

I don't normally scrap photos of me, but I had to do this LO for the N4D Newsletter and the About the Creative Team Gallery.

We've all had a wonderful welcome from all the girls... Once again, it is sooo exciting being on this team!

Another LO...

I am on a roll at the moment... maybe because I know I won't get much scrapping done this weekend when my sister comes down to visit! She arrives tomorrow! YAY!

Anyway - here's my latest LO - I have scrapped one of those silhouette photos before, but I was never really happy with it... I love this one much more!

First Ever CT Layout

Well, here is my first Nuts4Digi CT layout... I used the Nature kit from Designs by Marguerite. It is such a versatile kit, with beautiful colours and a wonderful array of overlays and rubons.
