I like this photo - I think I will change it to sepia and do some sort of vintagy layout with it.....
I am also fiddling with setting to try and get a lower f-stop on my camera - just so I can achieve that gorgeous out-of-focus edge around portraits - I'm slowly getting there! LOL!
I am doing the October Free class at ScrapbooknBits. Here are a couple of sneak peaks:
I had lots of fun getting nice 'n grungy with this - lots of painting, inking and distressing! Hehe!
The best thing about the free classes is you don't have to buy the kit to participate - but this kit is seriously awesome!! Fantastic value too - at $11.00. You get 3 Double sided WRMK papers, a Prima 12x12 transparency, some chipboard for the album, and chippy shapes..... Oh, and the template for the album ;0)
You only have to supply a few of your own general scrappy supplies. PLUS the class - great value, if you ask me!!
The October challenge has gone up on the Scrap the Boys Challenge Blog.
You have to use this advertisement as your inspiration:
You can interpret this however you please...colours, sketch, circles, surf inspired...whatever
Great challeng hey? Here is my sample - I was mainly inspired by the cool circles, and used some gorgeous Nikki Sivalis paper.
Finally, head on over to Addicted to Craft - they have an awsome 12 Weeks of Christmas Challenge starting up. If you like doing challenges, you should try these out, there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs!!
Pssst - scroll down a bit, and you'll see one of my layouts, plus a little blurb- I was blown away when Angela asked me if she could feature it on the blog - my jaw just hit the ground!!
Oh well, I think I'll head off to bed soonish - I have to get up early for my walk before work!!
STILL trying to keep this health kick of mine going - very tricky when everyone at work ordered Subway for lunch, and I had Tuna and Crackers!
