August Mid-Month Mystery Challenge

This month all the DT's ganged up on us, each having some input into the criteria:

This is a 2 part challenge :

Part ONE
So get counting girls - every individual stamp ...
A rak for the person with most stamps
A rak for the person with the least Stamps

Part TWO
And a LO stamp orientated ..Criteria as Follows No swaps allowed must be all your own work

Terri - alter an embellishment by stamping on it
Toni - use at least one stamp in the title
Kym - make a stamped journal block
Megan - use masking technique
Marie - One of your PP has to be a stamped background made by you ..

I have managed to amass a whopping 1091 stamps (including individual alphabet stamps) but was not the one with the most so did not feel so bad after all. I won't mention who had the most Marie and Irene or who had the least Sim and Kym.

More August Challenges

This month Toni asked us to make a LO using CIRCLES - polka dots, a round shaped base, circle embellies etc etc.

For Terri's challenge we had to use the following:
1. Use a large portrait style photo 5x7 or larger
2. Journalling about your chosen subject - at this moment.
3. Chipboard title plus at least two other types of chippy embellishments eg stars, numbers or bookplates etc.
4. Use alcohol inks to colour your chippy embellishments. If you dont have alcohol inks use paint.
5. I want to see masking or stencilling.
6. Use a Cuttlebug or similar to emboss CS/PP or chipboard - if you dont have a CB add some texture with some textured/lace or flocked cardstock.

Kym set us another fantastic sketch challenge.

Relaxing Sunday

Well it's been a while since I last posted. Today was beautiful 22C - not bad for a winter's day. We took my dear Dad out for a picnic to Nobby's Beach on the Gold Coast. The weather was beautiful albeit a little windy. After a lovely picnic lunch we sat & watched the world go by - surf, sunshine, families swimming, bike riding & roller skating. It was very pleasant & relaxing sitting with the wind in our hair.
