SCRAPPING ACROSS THE UNIVERSE The Challenge is to be inspired by the lyrics "Help From My Friends" , and weeeell I thought this was a fab photo for my title! Here is Meaghan in Turkey (across the universe from Australia!) propped up behind an ancient statue in a little humorous pose!
KIDDIE LIT (Inspiration Between the Pages) WHOO AND IT WON!!!!!!!
This is the very first Challenge for this brand new exciting blog based on Children's Literature! The inspiration is from the book 'Wizard of Oz'. I've managed most of the criteria in this altered project. Its a lid/casing off a stack of 100 blank CD which I've managed to change into a trinket container for DD.
A tick for these things used:
Silver sequins
Blue gingham ribbon
Yellow ricrac
Green background
Teeny moth
Lyrics from Wicked on Butterflies Butterflies are part of the journey
Here's my DT sample for the challenge this week
Soooo busy at the moment, so just putting up the photos no time to scrap them into my little journal....
The amount of paper I go through for newsletters - I dread doing them, it takes soooo much time and ink.......but there you are - it has to be done (grimmace) Doesnt this make your heart sing. Here its not even quite winter, and those little daffodils are pushing up through the soil. This is very early! Is it me, or are the seasons really out of whack?

You are such a unique woman. I love your projects and pages. So different than I am used to seeing around here. I agree with the seasons being a little out of whack. can't wait to see what the flowers look like in bloom. The mail man should be bringing you a surprise very soon. Have a great week.
