Guest designer at Get Picky

Im very excited to say that I am the Guest designer at Get Picky for January. I love Get Picky, and try to enter their challenges whenever I get the chance. Their sketches are brilliant. Just check out this months sketch

And this is my take on the sketch. I snapped these cute photos of 3 of my boys and my niece in our backyard, they were just mucking around, playing, and I got some really great pics. Tiara, my niece is gorgeous, so getting great photos of her is easy to do :)

This layout turned out a little differently than I expected, but Im happy with the result.
The closeup shows my little hand made flowers. I cut them using my cricut, and the 'Mothers day flowers' cartridge, Ive sanded the edges of the petals, then layered several different sizes together, and topped them with a yellow button.

Oh, and some more exciting news ;) Zva creative have a new look website, and a new blog....   Theres a gallery on the website,  showing some awesome inspiration from the current and past DT members, not to mention regular competitions and giveaways on the blog... HERE is the website, and HERE is the new blog 

Thankyou so much for calling in, and please leave me a comment so I know you were here, and I can return the favour :)  Oh, and please take 5 minutes to call in to GET PICKY and check out what the DT have done using this gorgeous sketch.
