Feeling Lucky!

A few days ago I learnt I won a prize from NZ Paper Chase for a layout I created for July's Sketch Challenge. I only made the layout after reading Sonya's post on NZ Paper Chase Facebook that layouts were urgently needed. I never expected to win!!  This week I also won Authentique's Glowing collection from Aussie Scrap Source simply for commenting on their Facebook wall. I am rapt! Did I tell you I'm rapt? I love all of the collections from Authentique; Blissful, Uncommon and Journey being right up there but Glowing has lovely rich and earthy colours. However, I didn't know it was Halloween themed! Lol.  I can't wait to see it, play with it and hold it in my hands!
Thanku NZ Paper Chase and Aussie Scrap Source :D

A new face :D

I finally found a background that I really like! Just a pity I don't have a wider monitor so I can see more of it - I know it's my monitor 'cos I see more of other sites on the larger monitors at the Internet Cafe than I can from my piddly sized monitor at home. Oop's did I say that? It's ok dear monitor I didn't really mean it. True ;D

I was Googling Tim Holtz Configuration boxes earlier this evening because I've one of the Kaiser chipboard thingee's that came out around Christmas a few years ago and still haven't used it. I know what I want it to look like but saying that and what I actually end up with is going to be two different things! So anyway I thought I'd go a Googling for inspiration and I came across the lovely Dragon's Web which led me to Elegia's Background Garden. She really has some gorgeous work on her blog and the instructions are easy to follow so go check it all out.

Leaving you with a pic before I hit the sack....

This wee box and cards were made for Sarah Gough's OTP Challenge at Scrappin' Patch last month. You can see her gorgeous box and 3x3 cards here

And so goodnight, I woke at 2am yesterday in a fit of coughing and then proceeded to peel wallpaper off the hall wall while sucking on a strepsil. I need some ZzzzZzzz's.

Yay for Creativity!

I can hardly believe I'm posting another layout so soon! I made this for a Challenge on Birds of a Feather but didn't get it finished and loaded by the deadline last midnight...finding the right font and enough letters to make wahine was frustrating....I need to go shopping!
I ended up using number 3 thicker for an e otherwise it would've gone in the UFO crate and that is full enough already!
