join in and win

Hi there,

happy Saturday to you all :) Its a lovely sunny day here in Victoria. We are off to my BFF house for a BBQ today, so Im glad the sun is shining.

Theres a great new sketch up over at the Kaisercraft blog this morning. You definately need to have a go at this one, the prizes are fabulous, head HERE for the sketch and all the details. This is my take on this weeks sketch, using the newest Kaisercraft release 'Chanteuse'. And yep, you do see right, its a photo of me !! That doesnt happen very often, cos I really hate having my photo taken., although not quite so much now Ive lost all my excess weight :).

I love this new collection, and found it so easy to work with. I have more layouts from this range to show you next week too :) The kaisercraft wooden flourishes are 'to die for'. I love the birds and birdcages. I have painted the little bird with Tim Holtz crackle paint, and for the cage, I simply inked it in a brown Kaisercraft ink. Heres a closeup

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Thanks so much for calling in. Take care my friends
