Debs Master Blaster Comp



Well...I have been a busy girl yet again doing some design stuff for mas, but I did manage to 2 of Debs Master Blaster challenges done for March... the first was the throw in challenge of creating kids chrissy tags, and the other was to create a page using Aussie slang and to use black cardstock as a base and then only green and yellow...also a piece of string and a pair of thongs...this is the most difficult challenge I have ever done and I must admit I am not over the moon about the result..., but i have created a memory which I wanted to remember!!!


I also got to do another page today...Angie's sketch challenge...Its a beauty...I went to my nephews wedding on the weekend and really wanted to do a page of Jess, Raymond and I....will post it tomorrow as I haven't taken the photo and its dark outside...


Ok...well thanks for looking, and until next time....take care...


Lots of it

My First Sketch...













Hi there all...On friday night we had lots of fun and chatting at mas cybercrop. I had a sketch up as one of the challenges and I have a rak up for anyone who puts a page up in the gallery for my sketch...a winner will be picked out of a hat, so get your pages in girls....





Here is the sketch...





I did two examples...one without green, and one with green, as that was the theme of the night...GREEN...in actual fact I made the red page first, then drew up the sketch, and then made the green sister page...








































So...On a proud note...my charming son Cameron did SHAVE FOR A CURE on Friday...he raised over $500 and thanks to some of the lovely girls over at DEBS for sponsering him...xxxx....


here are the before and after shots....
I think that's all for now...my nephew also got married this weekend but I have no photos yet...
will show you as soon as I get them..
Until next time, take care and thanks for taking the time to look ...
Lots of it
