On the PageMaps Blog, Becky Fleck set a Vacation Challenge.
You need to follow the below sketch and use your vacation photos!

As I have scrapped no photos of when we went to America to visit DH's mum in 2006, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start!

We were lucky enough to go to Memphis (and yes we did go to Gracelands, fantastic experience), when I saw the sketch the photos of the Tigers we took in Memphis Zoo popped into my head straight away!

The page is actually an 8x8 as I figure if I do the holiday pages in 12x12 I will never get around to finishing them, as where this page took me roughly 3hours from start to finish, not bad huh??

I have tried to get the papers to represent the colours of the stone and the tiger colours. The notepaper and title have been swiped with orange and black ink pads, in that order, if I used the black ink first I wouldn't of been able to get the orange to show as much! I have inked the edges of the papers with black and the photos with orange!

The swirls up the side of the photo are done with a stamp, I didn't put the swirl next to the title as I thought it wouldn't look right been so close to the line of swirls.

The faux stitching is done with a black pen and ruler as are the dots around the edge.

That's it!!!!

Stash I used

  • Old worlde - DCWV cardstock
  • Papermania - other cardstock
  • A4 notepad
  • Title letters - Heidi Swapp - Lemonade Stand - Ledger (Thanks Kels)
  • Inks - Tim Holtz - Distress Inks - Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot
  • Ink on the swirls - Ranger - Archival Ink - Jet Black
  • Swirl Stamp - Kelly Panacci - Journaling stamps
  • Black Pen and a ruler

BB2 - Draw a house!

Here's my house, lol!! Click on the image and you get to see my house!!!!
As you can see I am not a perfectionst!

Based on my drawing and the 10 answers I gave this is a summary of my personality:
You are sensitive and indecisive at times. You are a freedom lover and a strong person. You are shy and reserved. If you've drawn a cross on each of windows, you always want to live alone. Once you have a problem, you need a friend with you. Your life is always full of changes.

You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.

You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love. We also see that you are sensuous, sexual, and privately passionate. You don't think much about yourself.



Big Blog Challenge 2 (BBC2)

It returns in August, and Yes I did sign up again!

I had so much fun in June and made some new friends and saw some fantatsic blogs, that I wanted to play again.

So this is a friendly warning that there might be some fun and madness on my blog this month, lol!!!
