Scrap the Girls feb challenge....

hey all!!!

for my giveaway please go here..... nearly there so please leave a comment on this post here!!! i love the lil bundles. they have been sitting on my shelf for a lil while now and its too temping those chuppa chups just sitting there!

well this layout has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks now. better post it up as its neeeeearly the end of the month. loved this challenge!! cause i love blue and TURQUIOSE would be one of my fave colours. I have used A LOT of chipboard, all covered, or painted or glossy accent-ed. and I LOVE this little girl!! this layout is very dimensional. i have no idea how it will fit into a clear coversheet?? I have some hidden journalling too and used distress stains for colouring. gotta love the picket fence.... my fave!

anyways here it is

thank you ladies for all the love you leave!!

well i am sure most of you ladies will understand this...... (warning,,,, a lil boast) when you tell your husband, mum, family that you won a scrap challenge - they just DONT GET IT, my husband was like huh, oh really and my mum was 'oh which layout was that??? cant remember that one' haha!!! BUT i knew who would appreciate this was one of my lovely scrappy well not only scrappy friends but a my goodest friend... i texted her straight away and SHE GOT IT and i know all my scrappy followers will get it too!!!

here is the first... WOW WOW WOW!!! and 1st time playing along here at Scrap the Girls. I won the challenge for January the criteria was MONOCHROMATIC.... I have an awesome prize coming my way $40 worth of chipboard from 2Crafty! now thats a lot of chipboard. Can NOT WAIT to see the goodies Vanessa sends me. THANK YOU! here is the layout.....


i was featured at the new challenge site CSI (Colour Stories Inspiration) for this layout.

WOW I am so happy and honoured to be featured here. there are so so so many amazing layouts!!!! but that colour scheme CSI#4 was all about my fav colours and also this layout is very special to me. So it must have shone through.

***happy dance***

anyways (not sure if anyone knows of Carl Barron an Aussie comedian well was watching him the other night and its one of his things.... when we want to change subject or walk away from someone we all seem to go 'well ANYWAYS....' and thats our ticket out. I was in stitches watching him SO FUNNY and SO AUSSIE..... ) anyways....
Get Picky have their inspiration challenge up .... its all about scrapping your summer holiday pics and you must use at least 4 pics. Now, summer to me is the BEST season. Love it! so I decided to scrap some pics from our holiday last summer to Hopetoun. I have used 6 pics and have used one of my faves atm OA Farmhouse. Lots of layering here and simplicity.

well a BIG hello to all my new followers!! and a MASSIVE thanks for all your lovely comments you leave me. :)
