City Boy

So I broke out some flair for the very first time recently
to play along at the Kraft It Up challenge blog.
I also added some wood veneer mushies
because I misguidedly thought I had to use both on my page.
I didn't, it was a 'use one of these things' challenge :-)

These pics were taken on the bus, Nan was enjoying showing Dex the ropes.

There is still time to play along this month.
And, if you are up for it, they are having a DT call.
Thanks for dropping by

Scrap Around the World

Is a fun, newish challenge blog full of amazing and inspiring creatives.
This is their November challenge...

And this is the page I made, inspired by the colours and drippiness of the paint.
I also used the sketch rotated clockwise.

I might have to retreat to my art room now as it is raining again today and such perfect weather for flinging around some ink & paint :-D

Thanks so much for dropping by,
Yours in scrappiness

Authentique & UmWow

Authentique & UmWow make a lovely combination.
I'm playing along with Throwback Thursday
using some old Authentique papers and stickers with
DeeDee's gorgeous UmWow chippy stars and clouds
(which I cut in half to look like piles of mud).
This is also the November challenge on the UmWow blog :-)

Maybe you will play along too?
There's a prize up for grabs, just follow the links above to find out more.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Fun

I had an awesome scrapping weekend at the
with a bunch of amazing gals.
The food was delicious, accommodation very comfy,
and inspiration abundant.
The wonderful Peta MacBeth brought along her
side-kick Michelle and her shop chock full of brand new goodies.
It was an opportunity for me to hang out with kindred spirits
and catch up on lots of challenges without the
distraction of children, housework, TV, or Facebook.

So here are my pages for the Monopoly Challenge over at
Scrapbooking Top 50. I am a late-comer to this game and
had about 5 challenges to catch up which was a brilliant way to
kick-start my mojo for the weekend.

The first challenge was 'Go'
use the letters g & o at the beginning of your title

Week 1 - Glitter
I used Glimmer Mists, bling, and Twinkling H2Os 
This page was done for my new friend Shelly, she was kind enough to spare me
the divine picture of her daughter on her wedding day. Thank you Shelly *mwah*

Week 2 - Retro
I found a vinyl single at Salvos and a green doiley at Vinnies,
combined with a large pattern and slide frames for this page.

Week 3 - Visiting Jail
Black & white and something hidden. I used one of Charm's Creations
page runners as a pull-out tab for my journalling.

Week 4 - Sewing
Include a stitched border and some leaves

These challenges are great fun and it's not too late to join in.
I am going to work on weeks 5 & 6 this weekend.

I also got a few other challenges done in Barraba
I'll share them in the upcoming week as I get time.

Thanks heaps for dropping by
