Glitz Design "Sunshine in my soul" for All About Scrapbooks - 1st Dec Stuck?! sketch

 A big hello there to you all...and welcome to my blog!

Firstly, I have some new and exciting news to share!!!
Vanessa from All About Scrapbooks has invited me to join her brand new DT!!
So I am really excited about this new journey and really looking forward to sharing my creations with you all. 

You can find the online store.... HERE
And the brand spanking new blog.... HERE
So please pop over and check them out, and leave some love too if you wish :))))

The other new DT member who will be my partner in crime is Fiona Johnstone!!....really looking forward to creating with you Fiona!.  And a HUGE thank you to Vanessa for inviting me to join this fabulous team :)



For my DT debut, I got to play with the gorgeous Glitz Design - Sunshine in my soul collection - I just love the colours & patterns in this collection, they are gorgeous!

Here is my first layout....

"I love a sunburnt country"
 
Based on the 1st Dec Stuck?! sketch....
 
 
 
Here is the sketch from Stuck that my layout is based on
 
 
 
 
 
 
 And now for a few close ups....

Main cluster.....luuurve those colours! <3
 
 
 

Title using the matching alpha stickers in the Glitz Sunshine in my soul collection.




And part of my journaling....which is the well known 2nd verse of Dorothea Mackellar's famous poem, "My Country".  The rest of my journaling (and there's quite a lot!) is on the back of the layout....which recites the poem in full, plus a bit of journaling about the photos & how diverse this country of ours is with its landscape & climate
 
You can read the poem in full HERE.
 
  

And an overall view.
 
For more close ups & a list of products, please pop on over HERE to the "All About Scrapbooks" blog.....and it would be great, and muchly appreciated, if you would become a follower!
Being a new blog, we are trying to build up a bit of a following....so that would be awesome if you would do that :))))
 
That's all from me for now....I shall be back next time with some more shares :)
Thanks so much for dropping by my lil' ol' blog.....have a great day/night!!  xx

Fantastic LO, as always. I love the contrast of the yellow and blues. The background look fantastic with all the punching/stitching/painting and stamping. Congrats on the new DT position too.

I always wanted to pop and let you know that I saw your Christmas LO in Scrpabooking Memories this month and fell in love with it! The colours are just amazing and I adore the treatment you use on the chipboard.
