 well, if you still have time in this busy season - the next sketch for Stuck?! Sketches is up and running.  The design team have posted some wonderful LO's on the blog!
I've flipped the sketch to the side and used this picture of my hubby and I on our recent anniversary.  I've used Prima papers, flowers, Prima chipboard and Hambly.  Here are some close-up's:
 ... some Dusty Attic chipboard which I've inked in white and then added glitter ...
 ... some of the chipboard from Prima as well as lots of flowers and doilies ...
... more chipboard and computer journalling ...

... and here is the wonderful sketch - there's lots of room for different interpretations with this one :-)... we hope you can still find some scrappin' time to play along.  Check out the blog for all the details!!

... in the meantime, I'm off to finish some packing - a few more days and we are off camping for a few weeks - can't wait ♥

more from the december journal

i'm pleased to say that my december journal is going strong - i think i doubted myself as to whether I could commit to this project - but by keeping it really simple and doing a 'little bit'  on it when ever i had some spare time - it's come together nicely.  
... some days I've missed photo opportunities (grrrrr) - some days I've just captured some 'ordinary' stuff - some days have a few pages allocated if it was a bit special ...

here are a few pages to share:

... once again, it's all October Afternoon papers that I've had in my stash - some Stuff 2 Scrap star chipboard shapes, tags & cards from My Little Yellow Bicycle - (25 days of Christmas) and lots of red striped twine ♥ ...

We have a few exciting things happening soon - graduation at school and some Christmas singing for the 'aged care home' - so I won't forget my camera then- after school is all done, we are off camping for two weeks!! ☺

Thanks for coming by

december journal

i'm a little excited about sharing this next project - it's something I wanted to do last year, but it didn't eventuate ..... so after a little scurry about, gathering some supplies and goodies, I've started!!  I've called it my december journal.

 ... i've used all supplies from my stash and chose to use the October Afternoon line of papers - I have a few paper pads around and thought this would be a great way to use them up.  So whilst it won't entirely focus on Christmas, it will have little bits added in between.  It will also be about the events that have happened in this festive month and other little happenings along the way...
... so here are the first few pages ...

... i've kept it really simple - just adding in a few embellishments - once the whole album is completed, i'm thinking of going thru and adding some fun textures with stamps and paints ♥
... if you are doing a journal or december daily - leave me a comment as I would love to take a peak.

Thanks for coming by

on christmas day

 This LO is for ARTastic - it's all about Christmas and we have a beautiful inspiration picture of a 'white christmas' - something that is hard for us Aussies to imagine.  But it would be quite magical!!
The added criteria is is have a snowman and christmas tree and add in the word 'christmas'
I know I've scrapped this photo before...... but it's so cute!!
I've gotten a little messy with paint, gesso and stamps .... creating a christmas colour background.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... a cluster of assorted flowers, spotty button and doily ...
 ... a circle bunting which includes the snowman and christmas tree ...

and here is the painting - check out the ARTastic blog for all the details and more samples from the Design Team.
We hope to see lots of you playing along and look forward to checking out your LO's.
Til next time - happy crafting.

I've used Jillibean Soup papers and letters, misting with CW template, adding texture with stamps...... here are some close-up's:
 ... doilies, Tim Holz flower, star pics and a bunting...

 ... journalling...
and here is the fabulous sketch that you have to work with this month.
