and the WINNER is. . . .

Well its tuesday again and i must say i was totally excited when i got the results from Forsted Designs for the compition i entered! No... no... i did not win but got TOP3 ! ( link ) so im waiting on my first ever BLINKI thing - whooooo yea - Thank you :-)  The result kinda left me stoked and a little bit more determinded to try again. . . . this week.

Allthough at the moment i am giving my work space a clean out and reorganising it ( might not find things though ). It seems to be taking forever BUT i must remember with a 3year old and a 1year old at my feet... these things take time.
So while i sort out my space and think about the new challenge at Frosted Designs -  head over to Frosted Designs for their new SKETCH and be inspired by the design team.

My 1st on-line Competition !

On the Frosted Designs web page ( i mentioned in my last update ) there is a current sketch challenge (sketch 43) which i just fell in love with  and thought i would give it a go and enter .....

At first i was very hesitant and the 'pieces' just lay on my bench in my creative space for a few days. But with the submission date fast approaching , last night i buckled down..... and the page came together rather well :-)

 So here it is ladies my first page i am going to submit and see what happens...
The top right of page - tried to add some height
Sorry about the odd angle still learning how to take pics to...

Thanks to my beautiful sister Chareen who has loved my work and been trying to get me to get a BLOG  to show my work - here is my current layout of Miss Z. YET, also with the help of a fantastic friend - Rebecca who has encouraged me to enter competitions and to continue to learn new skills i will be entering this into Frosted Designs Sketch Challenge !!!!

PS although now i have to figure out how to link it all ! I'll keep you posted !!!

Welcome to my newest adventure

This is a steep learning curve for me but I am pleased to be here.

I want to use this blog to capture some of my creative moments and share them with you.

This is what I learnt while up in Brisbane at the Scarpbook and Papercraft Expo with my friend Rebecca Beatie. It was fantastic to try something new !!!

Beck has a great blog full of inspirational ideas called: Just Me being Me.

Thank you for visiting my first page
