Sketchabilities # 54 & Walkabout Wednesday

Whew! Late posting today, been really busy....

Today I have my interpretation of the current sketch over at Sketchabilities, using the great Magic of Oz papers from Graphic 45.....


The sketch....


The photo is of Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland - a beautiful part of my homeland, feeling rather nostalgic making this layout....



Totally loving the scarecrow on these papers, and think he looks great stretched across the top of my photo...


The title is perfect - There is NO place like Home...



The scarecrow is awesome, and he looks good beside the thistles....

Along with the thistles, the only other embellishment I have added to this layout is the awful ribbon down the sides (didn't think that one through) to cover the words down each edge, should have used my Martha Stewart punches (wonder if I can get it off - let me see.....)

That's one of the things I love about G45 - you don't need to over embellish - the papers do the talking...LOL




As it's Wednesday, it's my turn to post over at the Scrappy Go Lucky Blog....

This week using a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches and featured cartridge New Arrival...

Go on over and check out the rest of the photo's - I'm loving this week's layout....




Now, to finish off with my Scrappy Room storage - only 3 photo's left....

Not showing you all the draws, way too untidy...

But, under the window I store my punches - two draws for Martha Stewart....




One for Fisker's, and others....






And, to finish off this post, I have to show you this - Christmas in September!!!


I received the wonderful box of goodies a few days ago from the beautiful Tara Orr over at Each Moment Only Once.....

She has a monthly draw of these wonderful giveaways (she actually has 3 this month!), and I was the lucky winner of the May (Yes - May!!!) giveaway...


As you know, I am in Australia, and Tara is in Canada - the parcel came by sea. Understandable, would have cost her a fortune to send it airmail (we forget this part of blog giveaways - the postage still has to be paid)

Still, May to September's not too bad....LOL

Totally loving all the goodies, including the complete collection of G45's Boardwalk and some great G45 staples.....

Thank you Tara - really appreciate it....




That's me today

See you again soon

Hugs
