OUAS - January 1st Challenge


well it is a beautiful day here in Perth today! n I have started a lil project, I am making some wall art on a canvas. Its a pretty big canvas 30in x 48in - so pretty big i guess. Havent done much 'art' stuff for years and years. Its a good feeling getting out my easel and messing up a bit. Once finished and if i like the end result will post up here. Have a concept in mind so hoping it turns out. Fingers crossed.

Dont forget about my blog giveaway here. All you have to do is become one of my followers and leave a comment here. :) :)

Onto my layout for the OUAS challenge. Loved the prompt and sketch - (AS ALWAYS). Funny thing is a have the ABSOLUTE PERFECT photo to scrap and do some journaling for. this photo has been lingering on my desk for a while now..... waiting waiting waiting for the opportune time.

The Story:

Back in 2002 I was featured on the 3rd Page of The West Australian i.e. the 2nd page into the newspaper (most major newspaper in Perth) after some partying on new years eve. The news story was called "The Morning After" and the caption under the photo was "Two New Years revellers make their way home as early risers head for a swim at Cottesloe Beach". Now I wouldnt call myself a reveller as I didnt get up to that much trouble? haha At the time I was wondering what this guy taking photos was doing so early in the morning at the beach??? then someone at work asked "is that you in the paper"???? i am like WHAT!!!! and it was. crazy crazy. Will never forget that new years. Nice and young and had such good fun!

My journaling goes over the back too... just a few stories on the other side. and it is hidden behind the photo where i can also store the newspaper clipping.

Thanks Nadia for yet another fab challenge!!!!!!!

Also if you are in Perth I am teaching some Background Secrets at Made With Memories on Friday 27th Jan 6 to 9pm. Please come along and learn some of my techniques. We will create 3 backgrounds using the MME Kraft Funday range. Its lots of fun and I love teaching and meeting all you ladies! :)
