Black With 2 Challenge

I was inspired by the January challenge over at Black With 2 and here is my entry. I misted the stencil on the background but it wasn't bold enough, so I dabbed over it with a fine paintbrush and some cream paint. this is my God-daughter Caitlyn who is lucky enough to live near the beach in Qld. Thanks for a great challenge BW2.

Some Holiday Fun

After what seems like an eternity (3 months) of absolutely no scrapping due to end of year work commitments and Christmas/New Year, I decided to open the door to the scrap room to see if I remembered what to do with all of the gloriousness awaiting me inside. At first I wan't really motivated to create anything and walked out after 5 minutes, but persistence paid off and I have managed to create these so far. The first layout took me a whole day because I was being too fussy about what went where, so today I am adopting 2 mantras: a) stay true to your style and b)stick it down and move on. Let's see how I go. In the meantime, here's what I have done so far!
