Well another day down one more closer to holidays. This is my latest LO for Toni's challenge over at Artistic Document. We had to rip, tear, distress and paper pierce. I took these pics of St Peters Cathedral in Adelaide on the night of the ACDC concert. I was waiting for hubby and the girls so i thought don't waste time shaz start taking some pics. I very nearly deleted them when i got home but soooo glad i didn't. This came together so quickly but i must say its one of my favorites at the moment. Its not a LO i would normally do and i didn't over think it. See what not thinking does for you?!?!?! lol

The Boobie Mash Challenge

This is my entry into one of our Cyber crop chellenges. Toni set it as an ispration to Laraine having her mammogram. So i've added chain and beads along the underwire section butterlies on the cups and laced ribbon in the centre section with the ribbon going throught a charm bead. Toni is donating $5 for every bra pic uploaded for this challenge. It was fun doing it and DD2 requested one done with her old bras. hehehehe It was good fun adding all the bling and making something plain into something pretty.

These are a couple of things i have done since the weekend. The Lo is for our Blind Scrapp challenge over at Artistic Document and the card is for one of the cyber crop challenges. Ivé used Crate Papers cottage garden range for the blind scrap lo.

Wow another week has flown by. What a week too.
MY girlfriend Vicki and I left for Melbourne Friday morning. Got stuck in traffic on the way down but still got there in plenty of time only to find out our flight had been cancelled. We were put onto a 12pm flight which eventually left at 12.40pm. We got there safely had a taxi drive from hell and got dropped off at the wrong hotel. But it only got better from there. WE shopped Friday night after stopping and having a drink at my neices cafe. walked throught china town and had tea on the corner of burke and russel sts. Italian. yummy.
The next day my daughter and her friends flew over got picked up by my niece and then my sisiter-in-law arrived at the hotel and we all met up at Max Brenners for brunch. We headed back to the Hotel to get ready for our real reason for being in Melbourne. MAMMA MIA. What a fantastic stage show. we went to the matinee showing and the girls got to get one of the actors autographs after the show. Then we went back to our room for drinks and munchies before walking to Lygon st for Tea. Italian again i had a chicken dish which was scrumptious. after us oldies went back to our room again and chatted until 2.15am.
We were up and out by 10am and at the blue train for breakie then wandered throught the casino to show Vicki what it was like and then to South Wharf DFO. Then Noriel and her darling Hubby and kids drove us all back to the airport to see us off. What a weekend! Can't wait to do it again.

Here are my ATC's for Scraptherapy. I stamped and embossed the dandelions. The lighting today isn't the best

Wow its been a week since i posted last. How slack. Work has been busy but i got these two layouts done during the early part of the week. The Celebrate one is for Terri's monthly challenge over at ART and we had to whitewash the patterned paper(mine is the shaped paper) and incorporate sewing (machine hand or fake) i hand embroidered the little red buds around the shaped paper. I also coloured the lace at the bottom of the frame (which swings loose) to try and match the curtains in the pic. I painted the frame with white acrylic and then stamped and then when it was dry i sponged on some of T!m's distress ink.

The Black and white Lo is for the MMT challenge. This weeks challenge was Classical. B & white or cream, flourishes, chandeleirs and or damask, rub-ons pearls. I love this pic of hubby and my eldest daughter but her reaction to the LO is "oh that is lovely except for that picture". KIDS! It was the last pic taken on christmas day before we headed to bed. Oh well thats her bad luck and i'm happy with them.
