My win at Pink Paislee

My name was drawn out of the hat the other week in a competition at Pink Paislee in connection to Facebook. I was meant to receive a sheet of each of the patterned papers from each of the new releases. There was some of the new ranges in my little parcel and a whole lot more. I was very impressed with my little haul. Thanks Pink Paislee!!

Check this out!!!

On a whim I loaded the clock and memo board that I did on to the Kaisercraft gallery. I really liked the way Renee Ludlow did the bird house. So I did one too but turned it into a clock! And made the memo board in the same style. They will look so good in our kitchen coz it just so happens that the colours all match in just nicely.

Anyway, this afternoon I was reading through Kaisercraft's newsletter and lo and behold, there's my clock!!! It is very exciting to see your work unexpectedly like that.

Here it is for a looky-see.

Another one for a challenge blog but I didn't get it done in time to enter it. Oh well!!
I had a friend give me some little clear plastic shoes the other day. I was wondering what to do with them when I remembered the shoes that Kaisercraft had in their Q1 magazine. So I painted them up and then blinged them up. The little butterfly on the toe is to acknowledge my obsession with butterflies. They turned out so cute!!

I did this one for me. I look at layouts like this on the net and just drool. I think they are beautiful. So I decided to give one a go and this is what I ended up with. I love it. Now to do a few more.
Calling all shabbychic/vintage scrappers a new challenge blog has hit the net and they are looking for a DT to join in on the fun .
So if you fancy yourself as a shabbychic/vintage style scrapper send us 2 of your layouts to
Dt call closes september 25th so get those entries in girls .
Wow while I'm on a roll let's keep going.....

This one is for the Black With 2 Challenge blog. I like this blog. This time you had use dominant black (as always), blue, orange, a diecut and foam or felt letters for the title. I think I covered all the criteria!!
OMG I think I worked it out!!!! Let's see how I go for the next one.

This one I just emailed of to 123 Challenge. For this challenge you had to use the word 'smile', some book paper and a non-scrapping item. I saw something the other day about ironing the plastic shopping bags and re-using them. Another form of recycling those blasted things!!! Anyway I gave it a go and it turned out really cool so I used them for the scallop trims and punched the flowers out of them.

I'm really enjoying doing these challenges. It's just whether or not I have the courage to actually send them off to the actual challenge that is the real issue. This is the first time I've sent one into this challenge. I always look at all the work on the various sites and think that my work isn't really up to that standard. But I am trying to take a new approach....if I don't give it a go then I will never know!!! So far it is working.

I did this layout for a challenge blog here. I love the way it turned out.
