Get Picky & some exciting news!!!

Wow, I'm back so soon!  Hahaha, that's what happens when you make a blog post around midnight when you're dog tired....you say things like "this will be my last post before Christmas"....when you have one more challenge post yet to put up!  lol  .....and you forget to announce some exciting news! (more about that after the challenge details)

This is sketch # 15 over at Get Picky




And here is my take on it......


Using MME, BG & Pink Paislee papers....with some Prima & Kaisercraft flowers, Dusty Attic CB, Maya Road journal spot, Chip Chop Shop chipboard button, Lovelybug Bits n Bobs button & Shabby Chic die cut.  Pics are from our trip to Victoria in October....taken at the Sticky Tart Cafe in Yackandandah - gorgeous food & if you're ever there, I highly recommend a visit!

A few close ups....








And now for my exciting news!
And it involves this.....



This year I decided, for the first time, to enter the Scrapbooking Memories Masters competition....and I'm so glad that I did, because I came home the other night to find a copy of the magazine in the mail (packaged very different to my normal monthly sub).....and to my surprise, I have received an honourable mention for my double paged layout!!!!  Totally stoked.  I don't think I can share a pic of my layout in the magazine just yet, it hasn't even gone on sale here in Aus.

I'd like to send out a huge congrats to all of the Masters chosen this year.....your work is absolutely stunning & very worthy of your Masters win!  And also to the many others who received an honourable mention....too many to name, but to those that I know in the scrapping world, it is a privilege to have my name there alongside you all :)))  It is also pleasing to see so many "newbies" who received honourable mentions this year - well done to you all!

I am pretty sure that this WILL BE my last post before Christmas (lol)....so Merry Christmas everyone!

And a huge thanks to my regular visitors & commenters.....your comments are always a pleasure to read & they are very much appreciated :)
