Feb Scrap the Girls

I have been wanting to play along with the scrap the girls challenges for a couple of months now, but as usual, life has just been getting in the way.  But last night I had some time to scrap the Feb challenge, which is a sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch.....

and here is my take on the sketch.....

Pic is a group of work friends on our trip to Sydney late last year (I'm not in the pic, as I was the one behind the camera for the weekend....nothing new there!  lol)   We had just finished our Limo tour around Sydney & dropped off at the Opera House for dinner & to go see the ballet when they spotted this Fire & Rescue truck....They all though it was great fun posing in front of it - even the firies got out of the truck & were taking photos of them.  hahhaha.  It was a top weekend!

This next LO is for the Feb sketch at Handmade by Susanne
(oops, forgot to put a pic of the sketch....but you can check it out here)

This is the same weekend as the LO above.....just a different night.  Before going on our Showboat cruise, we stopped off at a bar in Darling Harbour for a cocktail....or two.  The one I had was called "The Italian Job".  My gosh it was super yummy!

And this last LO was for a challenge over at Red Earth Scrapping - to have journaling straight on your photo.

Coincidently....another pic from the weekend in Sydney with the girls from work.  Pic taken of Luna Park as we sailed past on the Showboat cruise. 

TFL & thanks for visiting my lil ol blog :)

Linda, I just popped by as I saw your comment on my blog (thanks for popping in) about the paint. Now I used to look at everyone else using paint and I could never quite get "the look". Then I read someone's tip about using an old credit card and smearing the paint with that. So I tried and oh my goodness, how easy and you get such a smooth, clean effect, rather than the paint brush strokes I was getting. So give it a try, it's hard to stop at a few swipes.

morning Linda,
just answering your question, yes the spray paint from the hardware store. Its the best for that and splattering too, its alot thicker. Email me if you want me tell you more :))
have a good day.
