of standing at the counter our local bakery, picking out individual lollies for your little white lolly bag. Musk sticks were a must and the smell of them sends me straight back to that time. I have, disastrously for my non-existent waistline, rediscovered these treats.
This is a hybrid Lo (yay for new things), I have discovered a new line of digi designers called Kitschy Digitals and have used one of their old frames on this photo,they have loads of fabulous products suited for this era feel Lo. Love, love their stuff, must use more.
For the elements challenge this week, Design Dollies this week wanted us to come up with an ATC and then use it somewhere else. And then they came up with this sketch
... which screamed ' use your ATC on me - now!!'
OK then - I will.
And I am quite pleased with the result . Here is my ATC -
And here is the resulting Lo -
And then for a Sketchy Thursday Lo with a different feel, a completely digi Lo about the tree that fell in our backyard last week. We had booked someone to get it taken out, when the week before, a windstorm wedged it onto a neighbouring tree. We had a look and thought it was pretty well stuck as long as we don't get any more high winds. Of course we had one of the biggest windstorms a couple of days later and with a rather load bang, it came down on the kids swing set (only slightly dented, still usable). So when the tree man came on Tuesday he only had to trim around the power lines and take out a bush at the front. I think that means I can use the savings on buying useful scrapping supplies, right???
and On a final note, I was given the second series of True Blood for my birthday - I am so very completely addicted. Unfortunately Geoff likes it as well (I know quality time with him is good...) which means we have to wait until the kids are in bed And on the proviso he hasn't got work to do, so we only get an episode or two a week in. I, on the other hand would happily sit down to a marathon and watch in two sittings - max. I guess this draws out the pleasure a bit longer...
Oh and I just finished the first two books in The Hunger Game series (young adult but sooo good) . Another addiction, but at least there is only one book to go.
have a great day...
