Feels Good to Join in a Challenge..

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking over at Scrap Friends checking out their challenges and though I'm not normally a sketch person, theirs always look so cool and enticing that I just had to have a try! Here's the sketch...isn't it fun?

And here's what I came up with....

We were in Western Australia in December 2011 (OMG has it been that long already!?) and on this day we explored Busselton. The photo is of my oldest DD enjoying the train ride on the Busselton Pier.

The texture on the bottom of the page is totally inspired goodness from the amazing Louise Nelson and her Creative Jumpstart tutorial! Seriously, go check it out :)

I also wanted to create a lot of texture at the top of the page to balance the bottom....

As always, thank you for stopping by and checking things out! Until next time.....

And the Winner Is....

Hi everyone!

The winner of my Faber Castell drawing is....

Sharon Fritchey!!

Please email me your address so I can get your prize off to you ASAP! Have fun with the goodies!

Anyone here taking part in the Creative Jumpstart Summit 2013? What a great way to kick in your creativity at the beginning of a new year! I've loved watching all the videos so far and though I haven't practiced all the techniques yet, I did get 2 art journal pages done...

Whether I liked the pages or not, I loved just getting messy and playing around with my supplies! If you're feeling in a creative rut, want to learn some new techniques or just want to see what other creative people are up to, I'd totally recommend CJS 2013!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Faber Castell and a Mini

Hello everyone!

I just want to remind you all that I've still got a giveaway going on here until January 10. I'll pick a winner on January 11th!

The first "real" week of 2013 has arrived in our oldest has returned to school, hubby is fully entrenched in what he fondly calls "hell" week and the Christmas tree is coming down...ah well, all holidays and vacations must eventually come to an end.

And sadly my GDT position with Faber Castell Design Memory Craft has also come to an end. Thank you Faber Castell for the wonderful opportunity, I loved working with your products! My last project to share with you is a mini book...a first for me! I've got the step by step posted on Faber Castell Design Memory Craft's blog. And I'll admit,the task of making a mini wasn't nearly as difficult as I worried it would be once I applied my "formula" to each page! I'm thinking there's going to be some more minis in my future!

Here's a look at some of the pages...

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
