MMM - Christmas, WS - Open Theme

This weeks theme at MMM is very appropriate as it's Christmas. And luckily this week at Wednesday Stamper is an open theme, so I'm using this card for both sites.

So here is my contribution, using a technique featured on Tim Holtz's website recently with his 12 days of Christmas Giveaway.

Merry Xmas one and all :-)

Merry Xmas and a LO

Thanks to those that have stopped by my blog during the year and I hope to be 'more' productive in 2008... wont say it's my NY resolution, as last years resolutions didn't really happen :-) but I really do hope to make more time each and every day to do some form of art. Tis good for my soul.

Last night I made this LO of my No.1 DD. Photo was taken at the end of year concert. just love those eyes!!

WS - Light

This weeks theme at WS is light. Here is my take on the theme and maybe we're going a little 'outside' the square here with my canvas -

Ok so I made this canvas last night for our toilet or throne room or whatever you like to call it. I think in the US they call it the bathroom??? Anyway I have made "light" of the situation (being the toilet) and have also used a "light" background..... cheeky I know.... The stamping is on the chipboard letters and on one of the houses. The houses are Collections and the background (which I just can't get enough of at the moment) is a technique learned from Viv Bonder.

Thanks for looking :-)

A tag inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 days of Christmas. There's lots of techniques on this blog that he is kindly sharing, i just wish I had more of a chance to have a play. Oh well there's always the New Year :-) The big letter D is the new TH grungeboard.

WS - Toys

This weeks theme at Wednesday Stamper is toys.

here is my entry -

which has been heavily influenced by Tim Holtz. His latest entry at his blog, is to do with Alcohol Inks. Check it out for some super inspiration.

It might be hard to see in this scan, but the 'toys' are the swings (stamp) which is a Paperbag Studio Stamp from the Quasi plate.

Thanks for looking

GPP Street Team - Crusade No. 15 - where in the world!

Michelle's new crusade is to make an entry on our blogs about where we live and where we have lived..... ok so here goes -

Born in Fremantle Western Australia
Raised most of my childhood in Kardinya Western Australia.
Teenage years as above.
Early 20's moved to Bendigo, in the Eastern States of Australia (Victoria to be precise).
Moved from there to Melbourne for a short time with work.
Moved back to Western Australia after 18 months away, as my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Married my DH in mid 20's
Moved to Margaret River in the South West of Western Australia (dairy farmers).
Born 1999, my DD - Emma
Born 2002, my DS - Luc
2005 family finished Dairy Farming.
2006, moved family back to Bibra Lake, Western Australia (city of Perth)
DH started working on the mines in the north west of Western Australia.
2007, moved to Tom Price (NW of West Australia).

Ok so that's where I've been and where I'm at at the moment. I dont have a journal page to share, but I do have a pic of the view from my front door. Tom Price is a mining town for iron ore. So hence why there's loads of red dust.
