Challenge time!

Over at Sarah's Card's blog there is a monthly challenge. For November it's all about 'thinking negative so my take on this was to use the left-overs from an alphabet sticker sheet to create part of my background. I wanted to keep things simple so that the picture was the focal point & I'm really happy with the way it worked out. If you are mighty quick there is still time to get an entry in!!

......and breathe!!!

Well despite my best intentions it's over a month since I last ventured into blog land! We've had several birthdays and a school holiday in that time! Despite the hectic comings & goings I have found the odd minute here & there to do a few LO's.

I decided to join in with Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party and although I've not worked my way through many of the many prompts yet, I have done a couple of pages using the ideas. The first was additonally inspired by Jen Naull's take on the idea......

The next was completed with artistic contribution from Karen who ably assisted in the palette selection! A bit - well actually a lot!! - out of my comfort zone but I'm happy with the result. A great way of using up scraps
