Red Earth Scrapping

I found this great website and I love what Helen at does with her challenges so why not hop over and have a peek.  This is the layout I submitted for the Cyber Crop.
and now a couple of close-ups.

I created this page using the recent instructions for the Cyber Crop.  I've used mainly Bo Bunny papers and American Craft Cardstock.  Also used is a Crafters Template, Tim Holtz Perfect Pearls, Kindy Glitz and gel pen, washi tape, a brad and some twine.  I've covered the word 'the' with clouds because I really wanted to call it 'The Jetty' but the brief was to use a one word title so here's my take on it.  I have lots of photos of Australia's red earth but was desperate to create this page.  Hope you like it as much as I loved this great idea for being creative.

123 Challenge

The challenge was to use Green, the word 'Watch or Watching' and texture paste.   I've put together this page of my eldest grandson when he was about 4 years old.  I started by preparing the page with the template and texture paste, then spray  before stitching around the edge of the page.  I think I'm going to try some different glue when using texture paste because I think some of the attachments will come loose.....
