Lee's Dedication 12 August 1990
This month I'm playing over at Stuck?! Sketches - so I can get a 'head start' on my "November White With 1 (WW1)" LO - and enter 2 challenges at the same time (oh yes its allowed LOL) ...
here's the Stuck?! sketch:

and the WW1 colour in November is "grape"

White..with 1

Couture Creations double sided tape and 3Dfoam dots
art basics modelling paste, fibre, twine, lace, Kaiser tag, white gel pen
These photos were taken at the Churches of Christ church in Pendle Hill NSW...That's my younger son being Dedicated. The tag on the left of the LO has details of a memory - at a very different time of my life :) :)

TWO inspirations for November Scrapping Outback....

Happy November everyone!!!
Here's our Inspiration at Scrapping Outback's November 'White With a Twist' Challenge...
YOUR layout interpretation is to be inspired by ALL the colours (any shade of that colour) in this photo prompt above; as usual you need to go HERE for all the information.
And here are my TWO takes on the challenge:
I took this photo of my GD while waiting in Starship Children's Hospital playground (Sept 2013)...

love heart you

For this LO I wanted to portray the love and deep feelings I have for my GD, which are enhanced by the colour purple - that my GD often wears and loves too. 




Supplies I've used:
And.... 2.
Spooky Murawai Halloween 2013
     I couldn't resist creating a second inspiration LO for
 Scrapping Outback November
I just had to scrap this photo of my nieces and nephew who now live in Murawai, NZ. 
They're so cute - obviously creative parents involved too :) 
I just love the end result- specially experimenting with the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders... love the way the silver moon sapphire embossing powder seems translucent over the lime ink - I decided to leave them that way (rather than making them silver ferns LOL). 
The Hollyhack scarlet plum 'dazzles' using the Versa Mark (Dazzle) embossing ink (pun intended lol).

 VersaMark  (Dazzle) embossing ink
Other: stencil, black thread, brads, glue, die cuts

I hope my LO inspires you to have a go at our
Scrapping Outback 
November challenge this month....
Until next time, I hope you have a great week and month ahead....only 54 days till the white bearded man comes down the chimney 

until next month.... Mazz xxx

I love to spend time at home in my scrap space and out on our balcony looking towards the glorious Australian bush...I am an obsessive compulsive scrapbooker and scrapbooking products, which I love to share. I also ADORE working with children, love card-making, stamping, collect turtles (not real ones!) postage stamps and postcards,

I love to make people smile...I have a passion for people, especially children, from 'diverse' and multi-cultural backgrounds hence my love of travel and sharing different beliefs and cultures as well. so...

And find your shoulder to light on,

To bring you luck, happiness and riches

Turtles (for my collection)

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
