Farewell...

I sure hope you weren't thinking anything sad when you saw the title of this post LOL
...Farewell Spit...
Yes the Photo in the LO is Farewell Spit and the Lighthouse..one of the many interesting places we visited in NZ's South Island during our honeymoon in December 2001.
Farewell Spit is at the very tip of the north of the South Island and looks towards Australia :)
I've created this LO from Julie’s Design Team kit at Scrapping Outback.
The kit does have on line step-by-step instructions, but to get paid the "Scrapping Outback" bonus dollars, I decided to create something different, adding some of my own stash as well !!!


So, I decided to try the The Boxx April challenge sketch 
(you'll see its a bit of a quirky one this month!)

Ok, so mine is not nearly as high as the bar set by other entries, but I'm really quite pleased with the way mine came together.

This will most likely be my last post for (at least) April, since I've taken on another couple of (exciting to me ) projects...just for a change LOL - 
Firstly I've joined a group over at the Boxx, and we are our very own scrapbook entitled "all about Moi" (yes YOU too can join, just sign up at the Boxx too -LOL!!! Naturally, I envisage quite a bit of creating, possibly research and searching for photos over the next little while :)
In addition, I've decided to try my hand at 'multi-media' art and have started an 8 week (on-line) course called "Heartistry" being taught by one of my favourite NZ artists/scrapbookers - Louise Williams...
This 'vintage lady' is our first 'prompt', so I'm guessing "watch this space"  LOL !!!
Supplies used in this LO:
Bazzill c/s; The ScrapCake pps (spring and summer at the seaside); Glimmer Mist (crème de chocolat, sun sisters and golden terracotta); Manor House flower; Heidi Grace (bracket) mega mask; My2angels bird charm; Basic Grey (Wilma) alpha (except ‘e’ & ‘S’); Kaiser c/b alpha (2x’e’) and pearl flourish; Rachelle Minette “S”; Versa Magic ink (jumbo java); brown embossing powder (unknown); Helmar adhesives; staples; SEI C/b circles; hat pin; cork; ribbon; lace; mesh.


Have a great week ahead all, hopefully I'll have something to share soon!!  {Hugs'n'hearts} Mazz xxx

Quote of the Day

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.
