Sharon's Winter Wonderland Layout...

I am VERY sorry this is so late but hey took a while to get creative again after our holiday, then I was having technical difficulties, then some tragedy, then more technical difficulties - hence e-mail it to Donna and she got the pleasure of doing it for me!
Anyway my page... I really had to Ponder 'Winter Wonderland' ... Many ideas but nothing I liked... So I resorted to the photo albums and came across this one of Emma in her 'Snow Suit' not that we ever went to the snow but I used to walk everywhere when she was little and she had to be toasty warm... Loved her little face peeking out of her suit so I decided that was the photo! Not my most technically challenging page but I liked the effect...
Very Pink Bazzill (have no idea on what colour) and White quite striking I think! I made a stencil with a snowflake punch... Then using white acrylic paint stencilled on snow-flakes which went blurry so I then punched out snowflakes and painstakingly glued on every little piece to accentuate a few of the flakes! Then I painted a chipboard 'W' white and then went mental with the end of a paintbrush and white paint and did dot letters for the 'inter' bit of 'winter' and did some 'flurries' around the snowflakes... Pleated up white ribbon across the page to represent snow drifts... Using my white gel pen I journelled around the edge of the page then added some Pink bling to finish it off! The white paint as it dried turned a soft pink but I like it! A little basic but at least I finally got it finished! I like the over all effect!

Second cab off the rank!!

Hi all you gorgeous girls !!!
Well here is my page. of course you're saying, it HAD to be blue & have a butterfly!! hee hee
Well you know, that's me.
I wasn't sure about this theme when Donna first announced it but once I had thought about it, it wasn't too bad actually.
I thank Donna for her giving us this challenge. We so often scrap and photograph everybody else but tend to forget (or don't want to ) scrap ourselves!! We are here & part of this world so we must remember to take every oppportunity to include ourselves girls!!
So I 've journalled a little about myself and included 3 (yes not 1 but 3 !!!) pictures of myself as Donna said so, lol.
I must apologise that it's not a brilliant photo but with the photo club starting up soon, & I am attending, that should improve!??! (hopefully).
So I hope that you all enjoy finding out a little more about me & maybe as I have this one done so early, I may do another!!!??? Close up shot of my blue butterfly. So cute!!
Now for the supply list -
White cardstock
Bazzill Bling - Blue
Butterfly sticker -Trev's
Bling - Kaiser - green
Bella! - silk flowers - blue
Liquid Pearls - white opal
Stampin Up - scallop punch
Basic Grey Paper - Scarlet's Letter
Stamp - Kaiser - all about "me"
Stamp - Kaiser - Flora & Fauna
Distress Ink - Broken China
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
Versa Magic Ink - Spanish Olive
So there we go girls. IT'S ALL ABOUT "ME" hee hee
Catch you again soon.
Cheers Sandie

Getting in early

with a very simple little layout about my quest to become a better photographer. The title reads, 'is this how the world sees me, because this is how I see the world?' Sometimes I think the kids see more of the lens of my camera than me, at events and sports any way. Most of the time they don't seem to mind though. I'm not sure what is happening with the colours, the aqua looks a little deeper IRL and even on the original photo but the action I use to resize for the web seems to be desaturating my images a little lately. I probably have a setting clicked wrong or something knowing me. wish the dotty card would show up a little better too, it is so cool, must get me some more when I'm in Adelaide the weekend after next..

Cardstock-bazzill swiss dot(aqua, white), Aussie scrap source(black and kraft)
Stamps-Stampin up and making memories
Alphabet dies-various quickutz
Punches-Fiskars (border punch), stampin up(curly label punch) and EK success(circle).
Colluzle circle template

Late entry

Sorry my fault, I'm late putting Maria's layout up, It was ready to go up yesterday but I ended up being a little busy.
I've loved seeing every ones work over the last month, brilliant effort.

Here's Maria's description in her own words. Oh and don't forget to click on the image to see it larger and read her journaling, it made me giggle.

I have finally started with snow photos that Liz sent me.
Not sure about the paper that is the background, I bought it when we were at paperific.
The paper with the snowmen I know is one from Basic Grey.
Stickers are from Jolee Creations and did some inking around edges and
Seafoam white embossing around the edges of the velum.
Found a tag from my outfit that I bought for Seamus' confirmation and painted it with Soft Moss (except the white swirls)
Then cut out letters using my Cricut and tied the tag onto the page with some ribbon.
Had a great time doing this, even if I left it almost to the last moment.

It's All About You!

Ok ladies, this month's theme is easy...It's all about YOU!....

That's right, I would like you to do a layout about you...Your interests, your hobbies, your craft room, your friends...Simple and an easy! Oh, did I forget to mention?...There has to be at least one photo of you on the page!

Like this......
