a few things to share....

...this month at "scrap in japan" i am their guest designer... 
come by and say hello...

and here's the sketch i drew  up..
it's a bit of a favorite design for me...

"the sketch"


...and of course the layout...

"any given day"


...next we have a challenge set by jess over at "stuff 2 scrap blog"
which is a sketch challenge with the challenge also being "all about me" .. come on over and play - the prize is chipboard chipboard and chipboard!!!
 
"all about me"

my take on the challenge is all about jorja... i've used some of my own designs poking out of the hot air balloon two chirpy birds.




"j"...what more could i say she's just adorable you know!!!


Awesome who doesn’t LOVE flowers – I especially like that they are so easy to make and there’s a massive variety out there for us to create. This week I made some fabric rosettes. I have hand dyed some strips of calico. I then rip 1.5cm strips from each of the colours. Tied a knot at one end and started to wrap and twist all the way around. I used some helmar fabric glue to adhere the tail end. Then I added some pearls to the tops and arranged then on my page in a cluster. I also made a paper rosette using the Tim Holtz rosette die – which is totally awesome I might add.
and this month "the chip chop shop" is sponsoring this challenge site...

 

i hope you go over and play along... i have a fantastic prize pack made up for the winner!!!

thanks leeann:)

PS i also have some pretty awesome news but you will have to just wait ... i am busting really to share it!!!

superb layouts.. lots of layers and colors and totally delightful!! i do like your sketch very much.. however what size would the photos be and how do you get such small photos? do you print them at home? i am noticing the trend is to use small photos on a layout and cluster or have neg space.. but i am a 6 x 4 or 5 x 7 kinda gal!! but willing to try the small photos if i knew how to get them that small!!! thanks in advance for any help in this matter!! (love gleaming wisdom from other scrappers!!)
