This is a challenge from http://another-freaking-scrappy-challenge.blogspot.com.au/ with this one you had to talk about a teacher or someone who inspired you , believed in you, helped you in some way. I have hidden my journaling under the photo, as what I have said about these two ladies comes from the heart.
Product I used:
I used a piece of cardstock that was in my ufo box. White paper doiley, green tara flower.
Jellibean coconut lime soup paper - straw mushroom
Assorted coloured rhinestones and a script stamo, stamped with black ink.
This challenge comes from http://www.scraptheboys.blogspot.com.au/ this is a site for the boys only. We were at a 2 day shoot in Roma Qld and my Laurie had trouble with the ute. The 2 Lauries being boys couldn't help themselves having a look. My Laurie was under the ute and the other was looking in the motor. The joke around our camp was " they where looking for their lost targets" a great joke.
Porducts I used:
The background was another opsy from a previous challenge I did not like so it worked really well with this one.
Sharon ann timeless collection - circle dots
maya road gears, coloured with viva inka gold - silver, black and bronze and dem magic over top

This challenge comes from http://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com.au/ I won a kit from them some months ago and thought I had better use it, not keep it in my stash. Which happens a lot when I take a liking to the papers.
Products I used:
All out of the kit to didn't have to add anything
7 dots studio paper collection: Queen of hearts - wonderland, spades and clubs and mushroom and smoke papers.
I created this layout using this weeks challenge at the Scrapbook Fantasies Blog, which is a fixed challenge (ie there are several things you have to use). I have created a tone-on-tone textured background using one of the new Donna Downey Masks from Scrapbook Fantasies, and texture paste.
The colour scheme was: black, white, medium light grey, deep blue sky and dark red.
The sketch from OUAS.
Evidence: Dots, red spotty tissue wrapping paper, circles
Testominy: I handwrote my journaling and used the word break
Products I used:
I decided to go a bit different and work on a black background. I sprinkled white liquidex ink around the page then used chipboard circles which I then painted with mm waterslide and kaiser cool grey paint. I used a white cotton doiley, manor house, green tara and prima flowers and a pima swirl to finish it off.
This was a fun one to do again those unusual colours that I hardly use. But I managed even with the orange (not my colour). This colour pallette and sketch comes from http://thecolorroom.ning.com/
I first used a swirly mask and some texture paste, then spritzed and spritzed some more even with some water, it was so soppy wet I had to stop and let it dry naturally. I used tuscan sun glimmermist, tim holtz distress dauber vintage photo and ranger brown sugar dauber and water to create this. Then tattered angels glimmer glaze orange splattered over top.
petaloo and other assorted flowers, a bauble ribbon, an old doiley and mm alphas out of my stash box.
This photo was taken last weekend at Rydges in Yeppoon we had a dinner for Tracy, but she did not know I was coming. What a surprise she had she nearly screamed the place down. We had a lovely meal and some yummy cake, a few to many drinks and a lot of fun. Had kangaroos feeding just outside the resturant door, and Tracy even had a guy try and chat her up, that was so funny. This colour sketch come from http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com and the sketch is from http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com.au/ this month they have combined there challenges, what a great idea.

Justice out shopping with Sammi, look out everyone she is coming through. This colour pallette and sketch comes from http://thecolorroom.ning.com/ I did this page a bit different, I thought instead of using the squares for photos or paper I would change it and use hearts instead. I have been using up some of my chipboard just to much stash.
Kraft cardstock using texture paste and a chevron mask I have had in my stash, see you do use it in time. Then coloured it with viva inka gold - lava rot, lava green and some black around the edge. A spray of black glimmermist over the top. I coloured the collections chipboard hearts with the green and red then used Tim Holtz destress dauber over the top and quickly wiped it off then went over the top with the green and red.

We had a bit of fun making these cards. I know it is not far till Christmas now only 4 months to go. Scarey heh. We heat embossed, did dry embossing, stamped and got our fingers dirty. I teach these cards at http://www.scrapbookfantasies.com.au
This sketch comes from http://www.aliciaredshaw.com.au/ . Karen and I went shopping with Laurie and Adrian in Rockhampton. This photo was taken while they where just looking in one of the stores.
The background that I used was a piece of cardstock that was an opsy, didn't work with what I wanted to use it for. Just proves if you keep it long enough it will get used. The cream background was originally painted with a brown metallic paint and light blue around the edges. I then mixed medium gloss gel with raw umber paint and put it over a mask. Sprayed english ivy and golden terracotta glimmermist over the top then used a script stamp with brown ink.

Using a piece of cardstock I destressed with Tim Holz distress inks ( peeled paint,peacock feather, squeezed lemonade and antique linen) I then used a mask for the sun and the pebbles, then painted over with white paint and sprayed with Lindy's (bells of ireland green) and sei (yellow tumble dry) tattred angels (teal high heel) and then glimmermist (sand).

Uncle Mick, Phebe, Darren, Sammi, Justice and Tracy went out for lunch and Uncle Mick was her favourite uncle (sometimes). They enjoyed having cuddles and some yummy food. I had a bit of fun creating this backround did some experimenting with texture and watercolours. This has taken me right out of my box.
I started with a white cardstock and used a mask with an eridescent medium, then painted using watercolour paints around the leaves and then all over the page. Quite a bit of experimenting on this one.
