OH GOSH!! Taking a breath!

Here are my first samples for as part of the new design team!!
You can see the fabulous Jacks here!!
This one was a mixture of Tiff and Viv's Jacks

AND then I couldnt get the sepia 'look' of Tiff's photo out of my mind....

So I had another go with this.
I took a more 'arty' approach in the way that the 1/4 circle of the fan blowing on Hannah needed completing so picking up the black of the background in the photo painted a circle, then a kind of abstract easel, and a rectangle of a back yard - it just kind of 'grew' from there. .
This time its all about the theme song from Shrek!!
The song mentions Disneyland - and quite a bit about Peter Pan. This is a production of mine back in 1997 when Meaghan was 'Mrs Darling'. Had a bit of messy fun with paint!!
You can check it out here
Though I'm a little late getting this up!! But if you hurry, you can still take part!! and below is the prize I was delighted to donate... it contains some fab sheet music...who remembers 'Penny Arcade' oh and a bit of 'Slade' never goes astray!!
-------------------------------------------------- .
. I have to show this about being so generous with a wonderful prize!!
I was totally OVER the moon to receive this from Scrap-It-Lah for December's Challenge!
Thank sooooooo much girls!!! Look at those Webster goodies!!!

What a sketch it is!!! Check it out here along with the prize!!



I was asked what I couldnt live without being a mainly Shabby scrapper... and it would have to be my little distresser!! The silly thing is that it would go missing underneath my 'mess' when scrapping - so I bought two more! And I can honestly say I still have ONLY one, because they disappear and turn up one at a time!!! They grow legs!!!

And look who paid a visit early in the morning sitting on the rails of my veranda!
A KOOKABURRA! Laughing its head off making such a noise!! It did stop and check me out when I pointed my camera at it!

This may sound funny but I never realized the Kukaburra was a real bird. My daughter sings a song about them and I just thought it was a made up word! I've never thought to google it.

Learn something new every day, hey?
