Just a few more

Got some awesome news yesterday ...... very excited as I won the Duchess range from kaisercraft...... it is being released in July, just by entering the comp they had running on their blog....
This I done last night for Debs master blaster comp she has running this month's challenge was Geometrical... so I choose my favourite shape... In this LO I used bazzil cs, bo bunny pp, kaiser pp, flowers gt, prima bling, stamped images, other bits.
The next was a sketch challenge at Debs

we had to do this one on fav food or place to eat etc.... so I choose these pics from our camping trip a few weeks ago, where I was cooking a stew and jess was behind me taking pics so she took the before one, then I was looking through the photo's on the camera and thought I had better take an after shot as raw meat and spuds didn't look very appetising. we usually cook a leg of lamb in the camp oven every camping trip but decided not to this time...

I used coredinations cs, bg pp, tag from the lovely chris, and stamped leaves and flowers...

Still here

well I've been busy scrapping over the past week..... I've done 3 Circle Journals (CJ's) through the LSS stupid me forgot to take pics of the 2 I finished last night they were rushed jobs them ones but I had this one a bit longer than I was supposed to, I was procastinating as it had to be on self portrait....... so ended up doing it the night before we went to Tumut it is owned by Kylie Tout whom lives in the surrounding district It was very different it is two canvases and the portraits inside are like folders, some had manila folders decorated and others made their own... I had to make my own with cs then used kaiser blushed pp in the centre......
I really don't enjoy doing pages on myself ........ but in saying that I did one from 1984 of my deb photo in a collage challenge for the RSS cybercrop. I done it in red and white as that is what colours the flowers we held were but I also added black and they all go well together and I used a heap of bits and pieces....

The 80's was the theme for the cybercrop and Lexie's challenge was from the song Lyrics "Don't Worry be Happy" sorry about the crap photo of the Layout as it was getting on dark when I took the photo.... anyway it is of sam..

This is Rach's challenge here we had to find a picture of a pop star in the 80's and take inspiration from the picture I choose an album cover of Michael Jackson (thriller) where he is wearing black and white...

I used cheapy creative8 pp, bo bunny stamps, bazzil cs, gyprock mesh (great stuff it already has sticky stuff on the back) staples, a few tags, and a cheapy alpha....

what I've been up to

RSS cybercrop weekend but I have not been getting much done here are my efforts so far :- the theme is the 80's
this is Kirsti's challenge we had to get inspiration from an 80's show(smurfs) and scrap a favourite photo from that era..... and use felt (fozz), chipboard (bg letters) and handcutting (flourish). This one was a curveball challenge that we scrapped on Friday night we had to pick a colour (purple and yellow) then given further instructions as the night went on and this is how mine turned out.....

a mini RAK card challenge at uproar.... we were sent some things in the post and had to make up a card with what was provided the only extra thing I added was the magnolia stamp and didn't use a brad that came.....

and it is that time of year again were I like to pick up the knitting needles and so far I have done this much of the back I use Bendigo wool its the best... I don't like to knit with acrylic yarns it feels awful on your hands..... I will sell this jumper when finished as I like to knit them but not wear what I finish..... It will probably take me a little while as there are only so many hrs in a day and I need to choose scrapping or knitting what ever the mood goes with I'm afraid....

I will show you the progression as I go....

It's gone

Well when I finally dragged myself out of my warm cosy bed this morning most of it had melted, I just went and took another pic or two, as you can see it looks sunny but there is an icy cold wind so its freezing.... (it' like walking into them cold rooms in supermarkets where they keep the grog)
The only snow left is on neighbours roofs.

The surrounding hills are covered in fog.... probably snow out the bush way it usually cops the snow before us as its higher up in the mountains....
