Second Time Lucky...

Probably lucky for you as well, as my first post was the usual long rambling post.

And then I posted it on the Child's play challenge blog...

sigh...

Luckily I realised straight away, and deleted - before copying it,

sigh again..

So here is the shortened version-

The latest Child's Play challenge is up - I noticed Julie has already submitted an entry - she is so quick! Based on the Book - The Giving Tree (which I had never read before - not an Aussie thing I think..) - here is my version-

I am in love with the designer of this paper - Studio 68 - thanks to Em who is on the DT there now. All soft and grungy - so yum!

And thanks to Digi dares - I won a gift certificate to Paula Kesselring and created this for the new challenge site - Red Carpet Challenges - this weeks challenge was so tricky - The Silent Movie - no words - man alive, that is just about impossible.

Decided to go with a picture of Canberra's main Lake at Sunset -


Not sure about the blues with this but love the birds (again from Studio 68).

And Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has their latest challenge up -

September is back to school in North America – scrap about a teacher or someone who inspired you, believed in you, helped you in some way.  If you have a photo of them, use it.  If not place a photo of you or something else that is representative of how they inspired you. This month we are playing for another word album by SEI and a chance to be chosen as one of the faves by the design team.

I was a bit too busy to put in my LO but the girls over there have done their usual spectacular work - go check it out.

Ok, back to unpacking now -come and play please..
