-:¦:-•*::...A Challenge...::*:•.-:¦:

Ok, so you all know my cyber sis? Elsa from Justafewdesigns?
...Well a few weeks ago Elsa posted a challenge for us all  to use her free doodle.  A gorgeous little girl called "Abbie".  SOOOOOOOOO this challenge closes tomorrow, and I am just scraping in by the hair of my teeth lol....but today I would like to share with my creation......

                                very first Easel Card

Some of the products I used to make this were:
  • Fancy Pants Splendid      Collection
  • Ribbon, Crochet  Lace, Bling
  • Silk flowers

I als tried my hand at paper piecing and layered up Abbies dress, bunny, teddy and bow with different papers.  I coloured Abbie using my Tim Holtz  Distress inks in Walnut Stain for her; Tea Dye for her skin and Aged Mahogony for her lips and rosy cheeks.

I'd just like to thank Elsa for the opportunity to use one of her lovely doodles.  If you haven't seen Elsa's doodles or lovely designs yet, then please do yourself a favour and go check her out.  You can find her at Justafewdesigns and her youtube is  and now you can also catch her live at her funs shows over at  Ustream channel

Ok all that is it from me for now I'll leave you with one more pic of Abbie and catch you later........

Happy Scrappin' to you all

(¯`'•.¸* -:?:- YaaaY I did it!!-:?:-*¸.•'´¯)

Today is a much better day for me!! I finally got my pc issues sorted and my youtube video done YAAAAAAAAY!! \:d/  What a relief! I hardly ever do talking vids.  I much prefer the photo slide shows, but today I have actually bit the bullet and recorded a "talkie"  :D lol  So now that I have it done I can share the photo's of my mini album.

I created this album using one of Nichole's envie mini albums. Nic has these for sale over on her website.  I loved working with them.  They are super quick and easy to do!! Warning tho' they are veerrrrryyyy addictive.  Once I finished this one I wanted to do more!! :)

The paper range is Bella - Beautiful Life...I have also used brads, ribbons, dimensional stickers, diecuts and chipboard stickers also from the range.

Please be sure to check out my "talkie" video of on youtube and leave a comment...oh and don't forget to subscribe....I have a feeling I will be doing more of these talking vids.

Well readers it is Sunday afternoon down here in Oz and I am off to begin this coming weeks creations!!  So many ideas and so little time lol......
