White with 1....

I really enjoyed scrapping this months White with 1 challenge - White, Grey & masking .
I thought this photo was perfect for these colours.....


Pic taken from the back of the Pacific Jewel as we came back into Sydney - just breathtaking!
For my masking, I used a piece of plastic gutter guard, but it hasn't shown up too well when I photographed my page.

I also used one of my new stamps that I bought just the other day from Ippity with Alex
They are gorgeous stamps! and I'm sure I will get lots of use with them :)


And this is how they arrived in the mail....

Isn't that just the most gorgeous looking package???
Although I couldn't wait to get into my stamps....I didn't want to open it & undo all that perfectly wrapped goodness.  Thanks so much Alex....it really made my day :)

Thanks for dropping by to visit my blog!

Yay, I've scrapped!

Finally.
3 layouts in the last week or so.....compared to recent weeks/months of practically zilch.
Mr Mojo had gone walkabout....but hopefully he's returned now, all ready for a whole new year of scrapping.

I can only share 2 of the layouts for now.....the 3rd I can reveal on 1st Jan.

The first one is for the Page Maps / Story Board Kits sketch challenge - Love how this one came out!

 And here is the sketch....




And the second LO is for the December sketch challenge at Handmade by Suzanne.....



 Loving this one as well....Mr Mojo has done well on his return...LOL

I hope everyone is well & that you all had a fantastic christmas....we sure did!
Santa was especially generous for me....he brought me a lovely new Jillee Bag for my camera :)

Take care & here's hoping that Mr Mojo sticks around & that I can start blogging more in 2011
