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!!

Here is my layout:
Now i want to see you use a punch that makes a statement, pops out at you like this beautiful one that i borrowed from Meredith!! Just love that punched border.
I also want to see a touch of glimmermisting or paint splats....go on give it a whirl, it is sooooo much fun!! I am by no means any expert, but i have found with these products....you take a deep breath and just go with it!! I did with this one and was very pleased with the end result.
Oh, and i want to see what kind of banner you can come up with too! :)
So there you go, have a play with my sketch and i can't wait to see all your creativity! Have fun!!
yay I have finally scrapped.
this is in answer to your art challenge
when I saw the painting I thought of Maryanne straightaway.
random green embellishment....check
rope or twine.....check
a less that perfect photo of you....check...and I love it...although Maryanne doesn't! lol
journalling title.....hmmmm...maybe not quite a check.....so I have compensated with something from the piece of art which inspired me......
at least 3 papers...one black and white spots...check
Thanks for a great challenge.
Thinking of scrapping another photo soon which fits the criteria perfectly as well!
This is lovely Sandra. What a beautiful photo of two great mates!! Love this random style too Sandra. Looks familiar ;-) which makes it all the more awesome.
Awesome Karen! Love those paint splats. and oooooooooo at you and your brights - you do it so well. Great balance of incorporating lots of photos onto a simple style Karen!!

*sigh* *drool* *fall off chair*
Stunning Mrs D. Love your random green embellishment, love your bits of string. Love the coloured stripe paper and love love love the framing in the black and white dot.
These photos of friends and funny times are making me smile and count our blessings to have such great people in our lives.
Thanks Karen. Awesome work as always. Your use of colour and space is (as always) an inspiration.

i saw this on someone's blog (sorry can't remember who!) and thought it was a great idea.... inspired by art.
So i have picked a painting by Australian artist Chris Wake and would like you to create a page based on a few things that have inspired me from this piece of art.
Your layout must contain the following:
*random green embellishment
*rope or twine
*a photo that is a 'less than perfect' image of you but you love it anyway.
*journalling or title to include a story about a great fun, (perhaps unexpected?) time you had with friends.
* at least 3 papers and one must be black and white spots.
in other news please stay tuned for the date registrations for e2c 2011 will be open. In the past few years spots have been hotly contested and we are usually sold out in a matter of hours. If you think you might come along, or know of anyone else who may be interested... please stay tuned and let them know to keep their eyes peeled also.
