2nd post for today.

Yup! this is my second post for today. And guess who I met today? The lovely Leanne Pearce. She designs for Stuff 2 Scrap. Check out the website. Beautiful designs. I won one of her RAKS from her blog. Her “Bubble” design. I felt so lucky to have her designs and to meet her in person and chat with her for more than a hour.Wow!! awesome to connect with people and share stuff.
Leanne is such an awesome scrapper and the texture on her layouts are fantastic. check out her blog here

Thanks Leanne for the beautiful scones and coffee. The scones were yummy!!!
I will invite you over another day and chat more and probably scrap as well.

Country Traffic…

Hey everybody,

Yesterday was a lazy day for me. I was chatting on Debscreations’s forum and browsing my photo folder on the computer. Oh!, regarding my desktop, my computer expert (DH) fixed it. The power supply board got replaced and its working. But I will still be getting my imac ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay!!!
Coming back to the browsing of my photo folder, I came across this photo of a truck carrying a gigantic machinery. I remembered how we had to get off the road completely to let this truck pass by. Couldn’t believe its size….. It occupied the entire 2 lanes on the highway.Siddarth’s jaw dropped looking at it lol!!!
I wanted to scrap the photo. This layout is not for any challenge or competition.
For my collection and to bring my mojo back.

I have used Scrap within reach papers, Magic Mesh, A-Z scraplet clog chipboard, adorn it alphas and other bits and pieces of embellishment from my stash.
I have used various Tim Holtz’s Distress inks to dye the chipboards.
Here are some closeups

I am getting impatient. I have not got my Scrapbook Creations magazine where my first layout is published. And my starter kit for Stampin up has not yet arrived too. I have to stalk my posties. Looking out of the window at every car that stops by, hoping it to be the postie. lol!!!!
Thanks for stopping by

Spring in the bush

Last year during spring, just for the heck of it, on a saturday morning we drove from kalgoorlie to Menzies a town about 100Kms north. We took our camera along and of course dragged the kids along too. We took plently of photos and some of the flowers blooming in the bush were awesome. I decided to make a layout using those photos. I have used Pencil line sketch #133 for this layout. Love the vibrant colors of the flowers, sky and red earth. Was truly amazing to see these flowers growing in the hard desert soil.

There is another photo of number plates on a wall which is amazing. Just as we were leaving the town, we saw a skull of a kangaroo on the ground. Wow!! it was truly outback. Got to pull out those photos and scrap. Memories of Australian outback.

Thanks for stopping by

Have a great day
