New sketch

There is a new sketch up on Truly, Madly, Crafty today and I had the pleasure of coming up with the sketch and a layout based on it. Here it is:

And here is the sketch:

I used some new Amy Tangerine patterned paper, AC thickers, Elles Studio tags, Echo Park stickers, and some mica mist in rose pink. If you would like to use the sketch please link up to what you have created with it.

a little something...

I made for the new ECP challenge which is to use SIX patterned papers on your project. I went small and did another little ATC, with six different patterned papers using a stamp shaped punch and a nice little quote. I really like doing these, they take a few minutes, a few scraps and a few words. Why not give it a go?

New job!

Yesterday I had a nerve wracking morning, as I I had an interview at a local Secondary School for a little job in their art and photography dept, and I got the job!!! It's just 8hrs per week, so I can still do my design work and magazine stuff, but it's something a bit different and I'll be supporting the art teachers and students. I start next month sometime.

Back to school and some kind of normality

It's been VERY quiet here, mainly due to the 6 weeks school holidays, a 2 week trip around Europe and getting ready for going back to school. Here are a few pics from over the break:

So, today the children are back to school and the house is extremely quiet. I am getting organised, planning work, writing lists and generally getting back to it.

Here are two projects I've done in the last week. Firstly a page for the Truly, Madly, Crafty challenge blog, the theme is 'new':

I used all 'new' stash, which was lovely and the journalling is about Freya leaving infant school and starting in her new junior school.

This one is for Easy Craft Projects and the theme is yellow, I also used one of the digi images from the sponsor, which was a very funky rock chick girl!

Go and check out both challenges and take part!

I am also thinking about doing Shimelles LSNED this month, I did it before, but already it's the 5th and I dont really have anything to show for it, so it may be a notebook and pen job and then I'll pull it together into something else.

I plan to post here on a regular basis this month, so come and see me and say hi!
