My Guest DT Layout for 'Scrap That Poetry'

As the winner of challenge #14, I was invited to be the guest designer for the current challenge;

Here is the poem:

Woman WorkChallenge #16 by Maya Angelou

I've got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I've got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.
Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.
Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
'Til I can rest again.
Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You're all that I can call my own.

I chose the last 2 lines of the poem as my inspiration.
Luv Shelee xx

I Am Creating!

Hello Followers!

I have been busy creating but unfortunately can't upload any of my creations as they have all been Design Team submissions for ARTastic and my Guest DT Spot for Scrap That Poetry. I also scrapped '10 Quick Cards' last night to submit to the Stamping & Papercraft magazine to see if they are intested in publishing them. I am busting to upload them all but I must exercise patience!
I am receiving the new Kaiser 'Hey Birdie' PPs today or tomorrow, so look out for some creations featuring those very soon!

Happy creating!

Soul Scrappers Photo Swap #2

I swapped photos with Erika, from the USA, and here is the layout I have created using her photos. It is her daughter, son and hubby exploring the wonders of Little Otter Creek in Spring 2008. It was so much fun to scrap photos of subjects I've never scrapped before.
I sent her a photo of Holly. So as soon as she posts her LO I will show you all here too!

Luv Shelee :)
