Let's Get Shabby Challenge #20

Over at Let's Get Shabby it is all about WEDDINGS this month... YAY!

Seriously, what's more shabby than a WEDDING layout?!
ohh so much tulle and lace and flowers and white pretty ohhh *drools* way too much fun making this layout featuring a photo I snapped of my good friend Meg having a random cloud-watching moment on her wedding day.

Scrap Jacked

OMG!! Thankyou to the lovely women at Scrapjacked... I finally FINALLY scored a prize for my scrapping that was NOT a luck of the draw thing. I'm pretty sure that is the first time (and if not, any other time was so long ago that I do not remember it). This was for my "1st Noel" layout featuring my puppy Cruiser's first Christmas.

YAY... go me!!

Can't wait to receive my yummy websters/prima pack in the mail... it looks scrumptious... YAY!

This month I stepped out of my scrappy comfort zone and used some bright colours for the Scrap Jacked challenge. I lifted Mel's bright layout and used a blue & red colour combo as well as some rhinestones just like she did in her pretty "My Angel" layout. Im not real sure about this one but am sharing it anyway. Thanks for the inspiration, Mel!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Here is my entry for this month's 1, 2, 3 Challenge:

The criteria is:

1. Colour: Cream

2. Word: About

3. Technique: Upcycling

Clearly, my upcycled items are the doilies.

Don't even get me started on doilies... I bought stackloads off Ebay not so long ago... STACKLOADS... I've put aside a big pile of ones I absolutely adore and have been trying to sell the rest on as there's no way I can possibly use them all! So many doilies... my husband thinks it is hilarious that I love something as "nanna" as doilies.

White With 1 - February

Here is my entry for White With 1:

This month it is all about using white with brown and a vintage item.

I had a bit of trouble this month (obviously... it's so not my best layout!) but figured the brown went well with this particular photo of my friends Karina & Dale's one year old bull terrier puppy. He is such a cutie and I have to always remind myself of which breed he is so I don't accidentally offend them. He's a BULL TERRIER (friendly, lively, happy dog) *not* a pitbull (the ones that are restricted and, often, dangerous). Chester also happens to be Cruiser's best mate (apart from his cousin-pup, Thunda) and they have had a few puppy playdates together which is always a great excuse for Karina & I to catch up. They go to the same puppy school, however Chester has been there forever and is nearly finished year 3 while our boy Cruiser has only just finished year 1.

I have a secret!
I'll give you some clues... nah... I won't. Only because I'm terrible with clues and end up giving the game away. You'll just have to wait and see. All will be revealed in about 4 weeks' time.
