Haven't done this for a while.

Uploaded some of the creative stuff I 've been doing that is.
nothing too exciting. Card for one of my big bros birthday.
This is a piece of an addiction I did to a layout from a swap I was involved in. Didn't want to post the whole layout on here because I'm not sure how the owner would feel about having her kiddos on someone elses blog so only a little peek.

Aaaah, dang, the pictures have come out the wrong way again. This is my finished layout. the swap was organised by Kim Archer. We were divided into groups of five or six women from all over Australia. Each person started by putting together a background piece with a bit of accent (mine was the strip of black PP down the right hand side with the half circle cut out of it) we then posted it to the next person and so on until everyone had added a little to it. There was a form we filled out first with reference to what our colour preferences were and the story behind the photos etc . Most of our group were happy for us to just go for it and add whatever we wanted, except for the colour purple which I thought was funny that four out of five women didn't like it(I was one of them) I adore what was done with my photos and background.

Some of the close up s of the elements added to my layout.



The finished result, isn't it gorgeous, thank you to all the girls who participated





A simple layout I did a few weeks ago, just noticed that the top right star has come off, you can see a little of where the glue was,lol.




Brendy and I. bit of stamping, bit of bling.






these two are a couple of the layouts I made for the bushfire appeal. they look kinda funny without photos but I'm hoping the new home they go to will remedy that. I made a few more than this but was too lazy to photograph them before I posted them off.

















The little journaling block came from here .Kim is selling the set to raise money for the bushfire appeal, aren't they cute. I'm starting to like little downloadable elements like this.
