challenge 5

Well i finally finished challenge 5, i wasn't that happy with it but its done. I'm not good at following styles obviously lol I'm on the points board "JUST" but its a blast seeing all the lay
outs go up. Trying to capture some one Else's style isn't as easy as i thought.
I will post my layout once they are all up.

Pictures of Fiji

I had such a great time, it was awesome getting all the family together for the wedding. Saturday and Sunday it rained, but it really doesn't matter there because it is so hot you just wonder about in it,we had to move everything inside for the wedding, the people there were so neat,nothing
was to much trouble, just amazing. We went to Nandi (just 4 girls) and i cant say the same about that place! to be honest its pretty scary,you are a target for all the wheelers and dealers,i couldn't
get out of there fast enough. They had just started harvesting the sugar Cain,every day we would see this little train loaded with the Cains, probably about 20 little carages,it reminded me of Thomas the tank engine lol. At night all the frogs and geckos come out,really cute to watch,oh
and they had a crab race, it was hilarious, 1st prize was the first crab to cross the line, then he put them all back in the middle and we went again for second prize ( which was the ninth one out) then same again but this time the winner was the last one out.The sea life is awesome, and the water is soooooo a warm Barth,I don't usually drink but found i acquired a taste for Pinacaladas,is that how you spell it ? every night i would have one,im missing them already hehe. thanks for doping by
look forward to catching up with everyone and the competitions.......Carol

2 days to go

Well i only have 2 days to go then im of to Fiji to my niece's wedding, i have been so busy doing

layouts and working that i haven't done much about it as yet, so today i had to go out and find something to wear!! lol guess I'm a last minute Minnie to.

The stamped pick above is so cool, its like a little wheel so repeats the pattern over and over

which would be very cool for borders and joining picks to journaling etc I even did a few corners

with it lol. I was so intent on trying it i riped the pack open and now i cant tell you who makes them, i popped into the scrap studio on sunday as i needed more card stock and saw it sooooo

just had to have it of course hehe. I felling a little behind in general, have so much to do before i go

its scaring me lol.

I have finished my layout for challenge #2 Kelliefied layout but wont get to see them all together until i come back.

SYTYCS #1 meeks

Here's my take on the first challenge ...... doing it Meek style. the layout had to follow these guide lines.
This was defiantly a challenge for me as i like more subdued colours.
I was blown away by all the entries for this challenge,I think it will take me some time to look through them as there are just so many... way to go ladies.....wasn't that fun.
