I was challenged!!!!......

and now I am better hahhaha
Seriously I am challenged and I am receiving the appropriate medication!
Ok so I am not challenged I am sure my husband would beg to differ....
I think I should get on with this post dont you?
My friend Chryssa and her Dt team over at 
 me to make a layout without the colour 
jokes on them they thought it would be difficult
Chryssa is kicking herself now
I use a lot of black on layouts about me
its the colour I wear
what I feel comfortable with 
must be the drama queen in me!
I adore colour
but I have to have black somewhere on me or in my creations!
after the longest introduction
here is my layout

some closeups

materials used

Paper trunk socialite privileged
cratepaper SCCP collection blue cottage
modelling paste

Happy New Year!...

What a way to start the new year!!
our house is leaking 
it rained so heavily just before New Years eve
that the rain water seeped through the ceiling
rendering 2 rooms of the house useless
I had used every bowl and bucket that I owned
to catch the water!!
and it wasnt dripping it was leaking 
I was on an hourly vigil to empty buckets
I can honestly say I am exhausted! LOL
I held Christmas dinner and New Years Eve dinner so there was endless cooking 
cleaning you name it! LOL
amongst all the celebrations and drama I created a layout for

the challenge is to express your feelings of the year that passed 2012
and the year to come 2013
the twist is to make the layout like an art journal page
using your paints mists mediums etc..
head on over to the blog to see the amazing layouts created by my fabulous design team!

here is my interpretation

we would love for you to play along!
