Here's a layout I've just done for Stuck?! sketches.I used lace paper which is self adhesive,then sassafrass lass papers and Heidi Grace flocked tags.The brads are by Bella and match quite well.
As it was an Easter layout I added the chicken which originally came in a recipe swap.The photo is of Annabelle playing with Erica who in turn was looking slightly bemused and wondering how long it would go on.It was a clear case of hero worship.It was nice to use pastels on this layout.

My readers will notice some different things appearing on my new layouts.
I submitted 6 layouts to scrapbooknewsandreview.com for publication but unfortunately they weren't chosen.Lisa Kampus from Encanted and mystical is on their team now.

I've started getting back to my family research spurred on by my cousin Pat.I started 24 years ago then had Erica and that was the end of it.Now she is "all growed up" and left home I have no excuse,plus the internet has made life a whole lot easier.

I chose to do this layout with purples and black rather than the green.The sketch was on a new site I have discovered Scraphappykat.The papers and embellies are from my $50 prize, the paper being named "Snowy serenade prelude" by Bo Bunny.The musical words on the page say "sparkle on a lonely winters night" which inspired me to scrap the wicked photo.It describes Elphaba. I love the way this has turned out!

Rather than square mosaics i went for the torn collage effect.The flowers are stamps I had spare.
Tomorrow night also on Purplescraps I am running a blind scrapping.

My layout to be published has now been delivered to SC headquarters.
Parcels from all those wins in December have arrived now.It was like Christmas all over again.

Personally I didn't think it was that great but there's no telling what the judges are looking for.I included the dockets because I wanted to remember the cost.

As it has been several yesrs since I was published I was doubting it may ever happen again and here you are.It will appear in SC No 77.
The layout also needed a bouquet of flowers so I used a vine and added Prima flowers plus folded petals from some silk flowers I had.They reflect the shape exactly but also I couldn't help thinking about Jacarandas.
Artastic and Screen to scrap are looking for a guest designer for march.It would be wonderful to be chosen, I can only hope and dream!
Colour blocking reminds me, there is still time to enter Archiscraps where the theme is Colour blocking and a holiday photo.
This layout would be perfect.
When you look at the Duomo you do wonder how they built it so huge,so long ago.

Here's my latest layout.It was for crafty sketches.We visited the Victoria and Albert Museum in London where there was a fashion collection.Erica photographed several clothes including these 3 corsets.I used the last of the loopy brads on here plus a chipboard corset.I tried to keep the colours navy/white/red with a hint of yellow in the patterned paper.

Looking around the blogs and sites I visit there is lots happening. I'm running Blind Scrapping on 15th January at Purplescraps.I've found a great layout design in a magazine and plan to adapt that.There is a cybercrop the following week.The other sites have some interesting challenges too.
