This is a late in the month post for Scrapbookit. The sketch challenge incorporated three photo's. I had a very colourful paper pack that I had bought from Jo when I was at the Spring retreat. It was "What a wonderful Day" by fancy pants design. The colours were a fabulous combination to work to complement the sunny look in the photo's. The title was some words I had that were wood veneer, so I thought that I would colour them with distress ink. And then I thought of a wonderful old friend that I had not used for quite a while...Dimensional Magic. OMG it was definitely magic. I loved the finish so much I then did the wooden leaf and then the dolphin and I was ready to continue with more. I just had to force myself to stop. This is definitely something I am going to revisit on future pages. A few sequins and some twine.....my other go to items and the page was done.
I hope you have enjoyed my page.
Happy Scrapping. Heather B.

November is nearly done and Christmas is on the doorstep. Where has the year gone? I have has a busy month and I am just squeezing in a challenge for Show us Your Stuff blog. The challenge was NO PEOPLE. Well back to the photo stash to see what would be appropriate for this. Amongst the pile of photo's I found one that was taken in Nans chook yard. All the chooks are called Penny (alias Henny Penny) so that when you feed them and call them by name they all come and you can mistakenly believe that they are answering to their name. I am sure that these girls don't count as people The theme I have tried to create is rustic. I have paper pieced some chooks to finish the page.
Cheers. Heather B

This month I was delighted to be one of the guest artists for Scrapbooking 123. The challenge was Pretty, Peach and Pleats.This was interesting....what to do for pleats. After much thought I decided to try pleated fans. A border punch gave a sweet finish to the edge which I then inked. Some pretty flowers in the peach colour theme tied the page together.
