Random musings (and some winners)

The countdown is on, the month is nearly over and I've still got lots of prizes to give away. So I better get a move on hey?

So with that in mind, let's get crazy and draw not one but two winners today!

First up: Prize #2 Smashing Stamps has been won by....

***AMY WING from Gauche Alchemy ***

And the winner of Prize #6 Sticker Sensation is......


Congrats girls, please send me an email with your mailing address.
But check back real soon because there's still a few more prizes to be won! You can enter them here.
(In case you're wondering - I do choose my winners using a random number generator)

Now, what would this post be without a couple of layouts to share? So here's some 8.5 x 11" layouts that I did over the last two months for challenges.

This one was for a colour challenge (brown, kraft, green and blue). I've used materials from a couple of different Kreatorville kits for this layout, including the packaging from Prima and Jenni Bowlin Studio. The recycling makes me happy. Not too sure about this layout though (apart from the smiley photos!)

And if you're talking about recycling then this layout definitely makes me happy. All the strips are from off-cuts that have been sitting on my desk for ages. Most of them are actually the manufacturers strip that's on pretty much all patterned papers these days. I just stuck them all on, painted over the top with some gesso for a bit more unity - and called it my background :-)

And guess what?
I've finished my Week in the Life album! Yay!
Can you believe it ended up being 40 pages long. Sheesh!
But I'll leave that for another day :-)


  1. 40 pages!!! WOW!!! But, what a great idea!! Love the pages here - fantastic recycling ideas, thanks for sharing :-)

  2. Oh, forgot to say, congrats to the winners :-)

  3. Now this is an absolutely truly original idea to create a page using the tops of the named papers. Its beautiful. Its even more beautiful bigger. I like how you've used these tags so to speak and then talked about having to go out and get more clothes-a perfect tie in.

  4. Great layouts! love the Colors-strips on the 2nd one!
    Congrats to the winner! Maybe I'll get lucky on your next draw! :-)

  5. Congrats winners! I LOVE the recycling you've done! I've been saving those strips too- sometimes you just need a tiny bit of great paper & those are often just right! Love the gesso for bringing it all together!!!


Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back again soon :-)
