Newsletter time.. and a new palette

The Boxx newsletter is out and it's jam packed with plenty of yumminess!!

First of all, the gorgeous Tanya Tahir was lovely enough to set the sketch challenge for this month, so make sure you check out the April Sketch Challenge thread to see her fabulous work!!

Our new kits are also available.... and they're awesome!!  The DT were challenged this month to do a layout based on a nursery rhyme.  I just adored these Basic Grey goodies i got from the Boxx Shop... and had to use them for this layout:

{ring a ring a rosie}

i just LOVE this photo of my girls... can ya tell??? LOL  It's a few years old now, but i just love the carefree girly energy of it... and of course it was perfect for the challenge.

I was also asked to scrap a photo for one of our Boxx members, however i won't post that outside of The Boxx until i have her consent. 


The new palette is up over at The Colour Room!  It's another one in the Prima sponsored month, so get out your Prima goodies... it is a 'Boys Room' palette however, so be prepared to get creative with it.  I managed to sneak a couple of prima flowers in there ... :))

The palette:

My very 'boy' interpretation:


I so adore this pic of my 'baby' wearing his dad's hat.  This was taken in December last year, so of course made it's way into my December Daily album as a big full page feature shot.

oh well... that's it for now, and it looks like i'll have a big week of DT/CT stuff to do this coming week.

.. and an exciting little side story.  My Claire Bear got selected into the school district soccer team yesterday ... following an all day play off!  {the air was thick with the smell of 'deep heat' last night}. Gladstone Capricornia trials here we come!! 

Thanks so much for visiting...
