Jot Magazine - February Mood Board - love

A favourite colour combo of mine...
I just had to play along with this gorgeous mood board over at... 
So many gorgeous elements inspired me.
Here is my take.
Just sneaking this one in on time.
Thanks for stopping by.
I feel so lucky to  have such loyal online friends who stop by every time  without fail and leave me  such beautiful comments on my work.
One thing is for sure, you never know what you are going to see....
I have a go at most things....but my favourite is probably the more clean & simple  style.
Thanks again.
Can you believe another weekend is almost upon us!
And Sunday is the beginning  of another month which means lots of new challenges
 to get you all inspired and creating.
Let me know in the comments which challenges you like to play along with each month.

February Sketch - the Scrapbook store- super kid

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
This is my take on the February sketch over at
 I have been watching Di Garling's video tutorials and absolutely love what she creates.
She is very talented and creates the most gorgeous work. Click on the link to see her work.
I decided I would give the MM thingo a try
.....and  this is the result.
It is much harder than it looks on Dis videos.
I gessoed the background, used the negative piece of the 2Crafty alpha set as a stencil and sprayed  with  Glmmermist to create my background. I  adhered all the spare 2Crafty Alphas, gessoed over them and sprayed randomly with mist and water then dried with my heat gun.  I randomly stamped over the Alphas and 2Crafty circle pieces.
Hmmmm MM background finished....I'm not sure I like it.
I've  decided I'm Janice of all styles...Master of none.
But I did enjoy having a play.
I have used several fabulous 2 Crafty Chipboard piece
This is the fabulous sketch.
Thank you to those of you who do stop by and take the time to leave me a lovely comment.
Each one is read and truly appreciated.
 Hope you all have a great day.

First Kraft Plus - K+ - mango breeze colour challenge

Hello Everyone!

K+ is a brand new blog, founded by the talented Sandra Wallace.

I remember Sandra visiting one day and telling me that she had this idea in her head about starting up a new challenge blog. We talked for quite awhile....well I actually listened quite a bit.  Sometimes we often get these ideas but that's all it is, an idea in your head. I could tell she was really  passionate, driven and excited about it and I wasn't at all surprised when  a week later she told me it was actually going to happen.
Congratulations Sandra.

 Here is the first colour challenge-mango breeze
Doesn't it look fantastic!

When the first challenge popped up it looked gorgeous.
 A colour challenge!!!! Eeek! I will admit colours scare me...not sure why...they just do.
But a Challenge is exactly that ....its a challenge, and I wanted to play along.
 After sitting, planning, moving, shuffling, reshuffling, going around in circles for 2 days, and determined it wasn't going to get the better of me,
 this is what I made.

Thanks for the opportunity to play along.
I had fun!

Thanks for stopping by.
