A winner & a DT call..

Hi there my friends.....

First up, some really exciting news..........  Pencillines is planning BIG THINGS over the next few months, its all very exciting, and because of that, are looking for 2 new design team members. If you are interested, read on............

"With big changes ahead we are looking for 2 new members to join our design team.
Please design a layout using this sketch from the book Pencil Lines the Sketch Book. Email your entries to
Deadline midnight GMT 16th October 2011"


 Today, I have a layout to show you that I did for the PENCILLINES design team.  This is an awesome sketch, provided by one of the very talented DT girls  Carina Lindholm.  I also followed the criteria for the GET PICKY challenge for October. We were asked to create a layout based on the word 'Celebrate'. This is the sketch


And here is my layout. A photo of my daughter at her 21st birthday party, which she celebrated just a few weeks ago. I just love these papers from The girls paperie, and have used them lots lately. I love the pretty grungy look they have ( Im sure theres a propper name for that look?) I had some fun messing the background paper up a little more with some splodges of tea, and some ink :).

And now, Id like to announce the winner of my first blog giveaway. Thanksyou so much for everyone who took the time to leave me a message. I wasnt quite sure how to go about drawing the winner, so i put everyones name in an icecream container, and got my 6 YO to draw the winner. And the winner is
