Make your move!

Another challenge over at Soul Scrappers, this time we were challenged to use the word "MOVE" on a layout.  Here is my layout:
These photos were taken when I visited friends in Queensland recently.  We had such a fun, laughter filled time playing Uno together. 
I wanted to keep the layout playful with lots of colours.
Uno, thank you for looking, Margaret :)

Travel quote layout

I am participating in a challenge at Soul Scrappers where we are to use a "travel" quote on a layout.Here is my layout:

I have used Tinby Designs Colour Crush Watercolour powder in Black Berry to create the background.  I love that you can use left over bits and pieces to create the random photo mat. The photo was taken at Buderim Rainforest Walk and Falls as I rested before heading back up to the end of walk. Great day it was to be out and about wandering.
I watered down some the powders and dyed some twine and fabric - I did not use as I did not like the resulting colour as it was more pink than red I wanted.  They will be used on another project later.
Here are my fingers after I coloured the twine and fabric. 

Thank you for looking, enjoy your wandering whenever it takes you... down the street or around the world.   Margaret.

12 hour crop day for Jess.

Yesterday I attended a 12 hour crop day for Jess - I did not make 12 hours managed 8 hours!!  At this charity crop there were two classes that the teachers donated their time for.
The first class was with Jen Hall and we made this frame.  I love the background using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and lots of stencils.  I will definitely be using that technique again.
The second class was with Amy Prior and she used Colour Blast products.  There is a real shimmer to the page. and I love the quote " don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle".  The photo was taken when I was holidays and staying with friends.  Emma and Chloe and I made cards together that I had prepared before I headed away.  They had such a great time making them and we made more cards the next day.
 Here is a close up of the 'sparkle' on the page.
I also completed a couple of layouts.  Again here I am with Emma and Chloe doing the Buderim Falls Walk. There was still a walk up the hill to go at this stage!!!  We rested at this spot before heading off again!!!
This layout shows me singing with the Bee Gees! Well their sculptures!!!  The photo was taken on the Bee Gees Walk in Redcliffe, Queensland.  I was inspired by a layout I saw by Leeann Pearce in an old patchworkandcraft magazine - thank you for your inspiration.
A little bit of trivia.  The Bee Gees came to my high school in about 1964 to open the school fete.  They were so young and it is a memory I carry of my school days.
Thank you for looking, and are you singing a Bee Gee tune as you read this - I am.  "Staying alive, staying alive......."   Margaret
