Big Month...

Yep, it's a big month of shares this month... so, in the interests of not boring the pants of you all, I might post them gradually!! lol

Today, I'll dedicate to Stuck?! and Kraft it Up.

First of all 'Happy Birthday Stuck?!'. Congratulations Sara and all past and present Creative Team members. I've had so much fun playing with you all :)) Now, instead of just 2 sketches this month... and 2 Creative Team inspiration posts, Sara is celebrating with 4 sketches and 4 CT inspo's! woohoo! what a treat!

The first sketch this month was provided by the lovely Lou Nelson, who we all know and love. This is what I did:

with this:


It's true! Late afternoon's on the beach are one of my favourite things... :)  We'd love for you all the play along and help celebrate our birthday!

Now, it's Kraft It Up's turn. This month Mel has also set a sketch.... and it is also fabulous. I loved it as soon as I saw it.

Here is it:

And this is my interpretation! I had so much fun with inking and layering and distressing in this layout...

 eeeeww... wonky photo alert! sorry about that! :)





In honour of the many hours dedicated to traveling, due, in no small part, to our remote-ish location... and the fact that we still endeavour to give the kids the exposure to 'normal' stuff and experiences that all other kids their age have - good dental and medical being one of them!! Oh... and that was DD taking a photo of her own feet. I don't normally sit like that when I'm driving... :) I think we were on our way to Mackay for 'The Deathly Hallows Part 1', a week or so before heading down south for Christmas holidays last year.

You can tell I did these layouts concurrently... there are similar elements in them both, althought it was quite coincidental that they both called for 4 small photos! :)

Oh, and just one final little share. My Miss Art's class is now LIVE! 'Layered Layouts' class will be available to all subscribers for a full 90 day period. Please let me know if you are following along. I'd love to know what you think of it! :))

That's it for today. Be back real soon for more though...

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate you all visiting.

cheers,

AWWEE Jules! Lou is such an inspirational lady and your take on her sketch is just ├╝ber awesome!! As soon as I saw the second one, I started humming on "When the moon is in the seventh house and jupiter aligns with mars. The peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars" (Remember the musical Hair?)Think hubbs will have to drag me away from the 'puter today, have this strange look on my face that makes him wonder what I'm staring at ha ha ha! Have the entire Milky Way in my gaze now ...
