WOW Marika - love the crispness of the white on that kraft... love love love it!!
Also fabulous stitching and use of the felt flower ribbon. Those scattered buttons and brands finish it all off beautifully!
Also it was a brilliant happy photo that was great to see on the front page of the Port Lincoln Times!

This is just wow, wow, WOW!
In the past few years, technique workshops have featured heavily (particularly stamping) on our feedback forms so we decided to incorporate them into 2011.
We feel very blessed to have two incredibly talented ladies leading us through various techniques which will add different elements to our pages.
What a coup to have secured Fran and Tatum as our main class teachers prior to them being named Masters! I cannot wait to participate in these classes and learn from two of Australia's best!
Again, thanks for all those that booked our classes and workshops. We know you are going to love creating with these ladies!
Thanks also for your ongoing support of e2c in 2010. Your comments, sending in layouts to share and positive vibe on the blog keep us going. Let the creative mojo flow in 2011.
Peanut butter reindeer cookies!
from here. I can imagine them being a bit hit at a school end of year xmas party!

Beautiful Lou! What a stunning photo of Nat!! Love the little flowers and twine and the alphas are perfect!!
Thank you for sharing! xx
This is a page of Phoenix after McHappy Day, she is totally a face painting junkie. LOL. I used the Echo Park, A Walk in the Park range, because it was so bright and colourful. I did lots of hand sewing on this one and used the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch for this big butterflies. Hope you like it.
PS I just wanted to say a big THANKS for your sketches and the great inspitation they provide me with. For a long time i just looked at them but am determined to have a go at them now because once i got off my bum and started i had a ball playing, and i am actually completing more pages now. For those few people that stop by for a look but don't actually give them a go, jump in and won't regret it.
Wow Gina, love all of this!! Love those beautiful butterflies, and arn't those Echo Park papers all sooo yummy??!!...... and such cute photos!!
And so glad you are inspired by my sketches!!! Thanks for joining in, i love to see your lovely work......i am so inspired by your pages, you are so clever!!

I have used paint splats for my round embellies in the corners over the top of some stamped Christmas words.
And i have put some vellum thru the cuttlebug which my title is sitting on top of. And i am loving the pulled stitched look at the moment....as you can see!
Hope you all getting organised for Christmas, those puddings boiled, nibbles made and Christmas shopping all but done!!
AND....don't forget to book in for the classes for the scrapping retreat, so we can get on with ordering all your yummy goodies!!
Have a good week,

While looking through some decorating magazines lately this colour combo seems to be the hot new thing atm - kraft with loads of white.
It doesn't look overly exciting here - but believe me the end result looks stunning. I can't wait to fiddle.
Also don't forget to book into your classes - time is slipping away! Only 8 days left to register!

Here is my example:
I know that you will all probably be too busy for too much scrapping this month, but just in case, here it is. I have seen quite a few layouts lately with strips of paper which is how i started with this one. Quick easy and fun. You can use one or multiple photos ..... i love multi photos of late :).
Look forward to seeing your creations,
Have fun with it....and have a great December getting organised for Christmas
Enjoy the moment of it all,
Fabulous photo and journaling - i really felt like you were right next to me talking about it! Awesome stitching too.
Really loving this Gina and i hope we see a lot more of your work in here too. Thanks for being brave and finally sending your pages in. Very inspiring work!
I was a bit overwhelmed by the video (the music and pace is frantic) so got the basics and put my own spin on it.
I was going for a vintage, brown paper and string type of look and i before i knew it had churned out 8 in about an hour!

Can you believe it?!
Janice sent me an email about a blog that she found with some Christmas ideas ...
I love this advent calender idea ...
... so quick and fairly cheap if you have an old frame around (or head to the op shop to have a look for one) that you could spray paint!
A Christmas wreath with a difference ...
I also found these cute gift tags ...
and a video to see how to make a gift card holder ...
this chick works fast ;-)

Attached are my versions of Sues Sketches for October and November.
I actually did the october sketch (My sisters) in Trinity Haven, but it took me until YESTERDAY to print out the journalling...with my dodgy computer its quite a process to use the printer, my main reason why I rarely print my journalling...
Thankyou for fabulous sketches Sue!!
Hope you are having a gorgeous Friday,
OMG Lauren!!!!!!!!!!!! These are sen-bloody-sational. I cannot say enough LOVEs to let you know how blown away i am. Just love your style (even if it is the complete opposite to mine) Oh that masking tape type is just yummy. As is the ink sprayed flower.
And that cute little heart banner is so adorable as well as that delicious little cluster.
incredible stuff Lauren. I just love looking at how everyone interprets these sketches!

This is a first for me- have challenged myself!
Thought it was time I submitted a page as I have been getting lots of inspiration from
your sketches and the challenges for ages now.
Thanks girls for the great blog.
Thanks Irene, I was very excited to see your layout in my inbox....and then for it to be full of pink....OMG, that is different for my postings!
Wow...love this LO Irene, 'specially the very cute heart banner, splashes of green paint/ misting and delightfully gorgeous photos!!
Thanks for sharing this one here with us...and would love to see more of your work!!
attached is my layout 'Master chef', to answer your sketch challenge. This layout is very busy for me and nothing at all like I was going to scrap it at the scrapathon!!! I'm sorry I just couldn't come at misting because that's messy stuff that I just can't cope with!! However I inked some circle thingies and I found that hard enough. The journalling reads ' making muffins is so much fun but the absolute best part of cooking is the tasting'. These photos are of Jessica when she was three, its hard to believe she has just turned 13!
Have a great weekend.
Thanks Tracey for sending this one in....totally love it ALL. Great colours, and love the torn paper banner....so cute....and what punch have you used here, love the look of it!! Oooh, and i love those inked circles 'thingos'....great effect!
And such a cute little grubby face....makes you wanna just kiss it!! Love the priceless photos!!

Mary there are so many things i love about this one.
Is it that awesome punch? Is it your gorgeous red wood backing? Is it your fantastic honest journalling? Is it that great photo with your handsome sons? (how did they get so big and so ummmm hot that quickly??!) Is it the little spotty banner? Or is it your secret little 'rock on' hand signal in the photo?
hmmmmm well i can't decide - i love it all.
Also I can't work out which is cooler - that layout or the fact that you took your sons to Metallica. You must be the most awesome parents!

oh this is fantabulous Ali - love the series of candid photos, that little cloud, your handwritten journalling (so much more personal!!) , cute banner and a kick butt title!
Also admire how you have used a busy paper but still managed to make it look perfect and not overdone or overwhelming at all. Clever, clever chickie.
I think you BOTH are blessed to have each other.

Here is my take on your sketch challenge.
I’m missing the banner – just couldn’t work out how one would fit on this LO.
Photo’s were taken at Pildappa Rock.
Love your misting and string with flowers for banner, very cute!!! I have always loved the look of corrugated card, loving it on this LO Michelle!! Thanks for sharing and joining in with the sketch!!
