A little Studio distraction

Ok, have been meaning to get a couple of cahllenges from The Studio dome this week, but have been a wee bit busy. However the deadline looooms, so as a birthday treat to myself (and with the aid of some lovely steady rain meaning no soccer this weekend) I have managed to get a couple doen - to varying success.

The first I actually finished earlier in the week but hadn't gottten around to posting about it yet. the rather talented Amanda had produced a vitage wall hanging which I have tried to reproduce, somewhat poorly in the end.

Next is a fabric challenge for Tessa. I love this idea and will use it again soon when I have a suitable theme. This one turned out a bit heavier looking (and feeling for that matter!!) that I envisioned but it was fun playing. Tessa has a DT call for her lovely Perfectly Precocious products so go check it out. I love the clean look of her scrapping, I wish I could do that occassionally...

Finally , Anna's DIY challenge. She made some gorgeous flowers as well as one of my favourite embellies this year, pinwheels. So cute. I made a few little pinwheels and strung them in a banner (another fav) across the top of my Lo. I really like the way this one turned out. I seem to have chopped off the top and bottom in the scanner as well - sorry, the scallops go all the way around.


Ok off to barrack for my lovley hawthorn boys (that's aussie rules) in an elimination final, surely it's not too much to ask on my birthday for a win??

Have a great day xx
