Southern Girls Challenge Site

One of the lovely ladies I met while on the Butterfly Crafts Design Team was a kiwi girl, Louise. Louise and her friend, Trace have started a Southern Girls Challenge site aimed specially at us Down Under (due to the fact a lot of challenge sites exclude those outside of the US/Canada from winning prizes due to postage costs).

The site hasn't quite started yet as they are looking for a Design Team and I have decided to apply. Part of the application was to put a LO up that incorporates some of your favourite techniques. I hadn't really though about it before but I guess it's obvious about the things I favour.

Let' see, that would be misting (tick), lots of layers (tick), patterned paper (tick) and buttons (also tick).

The colour red usually gets a look in as well.

I usually tear my paper as well although I didn't this time.

So this is it...

Ta da.

I did the following Lo before this one, and it had a lot of the same elements (predictably), but the paper was premisted sort of. And it has machine stitching which I am loving at the moment.

This is for Twisted sketches , sketch is this -
with the twist being fold (my red paper along the bottom of the photo).

Ok have a great weekend, we have elections here, so I'm on the cakestall at school (come on down between 11-11:45 and buy something). It had been a depressing campaign so far with the media minders keeping the teams under such rigid control, nobody wants to vote for either party. I have decided that focus groups should hereby be banned as they are the cause of much stupidity.

bye. xx

PS we came second in the trivia night at Meaghan's school, about the strangest event i have been too, more explanations later.. xxx
