I'm a Twisted Sister!!!

I'm very excited to say that I've made the design team for Twisted Sketches. I was so pleased when I received an email from Anam asking if I wanted to join the team, they had so many applications, still can't believe they included me. :o) Anyway my work will be on there website every second week.

Its a great website, every week they provide a sketch and add in a word as a 'twist' then its up to you to interpret it anyway you want to. So looking forward to more scrapping this year!

Twisted Sketch #083!!

Twistedsketches_dt05Here's  a sketch from Twisted Sketches which I love!!! The twist on the sketch being...MAP! Now strangely enough it was the twist that pulled me in rather than the sketch. As soon as I read MAP I knew I had to scrap a photo of one of Kennys adventures.

My interpretation of the sketch

I love this tag that I saved from a White Stuff Jumper, it has a teal metal ring which matched the colours of my Layout, just added the word South Pole in little alphas to it.

Used my robo to create this letters with 2 matts, one slightly bigger than each other, distressed each layer and glued them all together. each second letter is then attached with foam squares to give the title a little more variation in depth.

Home-made Christmas

 Trying to work on some layouts but thought I should update my blog with a couple more xmas pics.
Well here's my very first Christmas fruit cake!! I was quite chuffed with the final product, plenty of fruit and brandy and very tasty. And yes...that's a little rottweiler on the top of  the you not know me by now ;o)

And yes of course my traditional Samurai Christmas cards. I wasn't going to bother this year with hand made cards as I didn't have a lot of time but it may be Samurai's last year with us as he's almost 12 now and my friends and family have always gotten a Christmas giggle out of them.
