Making Memories Guest Designer...
I'm really thrilled to announce that I am Guest Designer for
Making Memories today - would love for you to check it out HERE!

Imaginice September Sketch...
Winter is finally behind us (Southern Hemisphere) and today is the first day of Spring, thankgoodness because I'm not a great fan of the cold... I love my hot weather! Anyhow, with the first of the month comes another wonderful sketch challenge from Imaginisce and this month's sketch has been designed by the very talented Aida Haron.
Here is my sample layout.
Aida's sketch was condusive to ATC size rectangles so I ran with that idea and created nine little ATC's... each with its own miniature tree scene. The Imaginisce Apple Cider range of papers and embellishments was perfect for this as it has an entire sheet of double sided patterned paper covered in different trees which was one of my favourites as soon as I saw it!
 A standard feature for me is the 'fussy cutting' of grass tufts but for something a little non traditional - I decided to make my clouds using the i-rock and a whole pile of little glam-rock pearls - I am seriously loving my i-rock, it is fast becoming my new favourite toy! 
 A dog's life indeed! Our farm dog 'Lizzy' is perhaps not your traditional choice of K9 for a farm but she is an absolute delight and the kids wouldn't be without her and she wouldn't be without them!
So, grab you scrappy stash and your Imaginisce products and start creating... you have until September 25 to enter the sketch challenge to be in the running for a fabulous box of goodies! You will find all the details HERE! Plus, don't forget to leave a comment on the Imaginisce blog (and mine hehe) for another chance to win more goodies, and if you blog hop around all the participating Imaginisce design team to view their gorgeos sketch samples and leave messages, you increase you chances of winning, good luck!
From farm to you...
