Wahoo- check this out.....

Tan asked me to   do a  guest   design  team spot  when I saw her at the  Scrap n chat  retreat a few weeks ago.   I  got some  cool papers and  just perfect for some boy layouts.  So over the coming weeks  Tan will be  showing some  of my cards and layouts  .  Here is the first

I did a cute little layout of my son when he was  much  younger and the little  bicycle  slides along  the bottom of the page.  I am thinking I was  inspired by my  clever   friend   Emma who does  awesome  interactive pages!!!

Cool huh!!!!

AND  dont forget  - when I get to  150  followers I am drawing a  cool RAK  winner  so   ONLY  ONE MORE TO GO  so   spread the  word!!!!

And a couple more...

I have  some  class  stuff to get organised - I spent Friday in the shop - learning the Till ( OMG -  ) and I may  fill in  in the shop for a  few days  leading up to Christmas so that  could be  fun!!!!  SO  before I  move onto  starting my classes  here is a layout I did for Angies scrapn art    sketch

and a cool challenge for a  cybercrop over at Artypants  You had to use 13 items and  13 of one of those items  and use  either the word  lucky or unlucky in the here was mine - Sadly - 13  items on a page is   quite easy for me....I  chose to use 13 brads.....pretty  sparkly  kinda ones.....

Out of the Hat November challenge

Three requirements - a tree,  3 pics of  different  sizes and  use a diecut paper - I used  two of my  fave   brands of the moment - Collage Press Knave of hearts - cloud paper and  hot air balloons  from Websters - so  of course I needed to get our pics from our hot air balloon ride that we took  on our  10  year wedding anniversary....ballooning over Melbourne - AMAZING....

I also - did this layout for Scrapncraft with T  Round  3 of embellish

and this is for  Challenge heaven - my  beautiful  friend Sherryl!!

and  finally  this is   the  class layout  I  did with Skye as a fund raiser for  Breast Cancer - Well done Skye -  great  fun and a great cause....

Lets get shabby challenge

So this  months  Lets get shabby challenge has a huge criterion - to make a feature embellishment on your page  so it is the  focus and not your pic.  Yay - I had a brainwave and I made this  Christmas tree  out of a  stack of   paper flowers I made using all Christmas coloured scraps - then added some  gold   glimmermist and  some  accents  to decorate the  she is.....

and a  closeup

Thanks for looking.....
