About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Digitally Sweet challenge - layout to sketch

The challenge this week at Digitally Sweet is layouts only and we have a sketch

Our sponsor this week is Scrappiness Designs

This is the sketch we worked to
This is the layout I made

I used papers and elements from the following bundles Le Cirque, Make me smile and Precious you.
Plus In your heart and Make me smile flairs.

In 2014 there was a special rhino exhibition with different rhinos in every town between Taronga Zoo and Dubbo Zoo.  Emily was doing a course at Taronga Zoo at the time and was able to travel to some of the towns to see the special rhinos.   Emily loves rhinos and has lots of fluffy toy ones

I hope you will go over to Digitally Sweet and see the lovely layouts by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to enter this layout into the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything goes covered with pattern paper

Inspiration Destination - anything goes

Just Inspirational - Noah's ark any animal

Sisters of Craft monthly challenge - anything goes

Try it on Tuesday - add a photo
