'Let's Get Shabby' has its third and final guessing game going on right now!! You get three guesses over three days!! Julie has put together this FABULOUS embellie RAK....count what she has amongst it, and leave your answer in the comments at LGS!!

I had visions as soon as I saw the sketch and wanted to scrap these pics of Paige for so long. She LOVES cooking for us and often ponders over recipes. This is one of my favourites she made!
There's so much joy in creating beach scenes! I've flipped the sketch a little to work with my portrait shaped photos. You can find the sketch here
My dt postion doesnt start until next month, and because I fell instantly in love with Danielle Quarmby's creation and here is my interpretation... (I hope I've peaked your curiosity!!Its not digital, its two photos, a large and a small, its hard to see, but the driftwood has been cut out(from another copy) and double mounted over the underlaying large photo (my dd shot this driftwood) so its actually 3d in real life. The words are stickers. The blue sea is alcohol ink. The dark spots that appear in the top half of the big photo are actually grains of sand and stones....but the perspecive of Hannah and the waterline makes those marks look like seagulls!
You can find the Jacks here

oh wow, you just never cease to amaze me ... I can't even choose a favorite this time, they all leave me speachless and yes, a little bit jealous as well! You make creating seem sooooo easy, when we all know it's not! How I'd wish to see you working on them from scratch, that must be such an interesting process to watch!
