GDT at creative scrappers 179

I was asked to be a guest designer at Creative Scrappers it's a (new to me site) that has some great sketches and designers each week
This was my sketch

and this was my take

I used sassafras papers and made some flags to go with the theme of the six flags park I visited when I went to see my dear friend Mabel
Hope you like it

All about me flashback challenge

Created this layout for the AAM flashback challenge
This was the challenge:
As we wait for the Creative Team call to come to an end, get those ladies in place, announce and prepare for December, we are going to be doing some "flashback" challenges. Let's go back in time to some of our previous challenges here at AAM.

Feel free to participate or, if you created a layout way back when, share it with us!

Get in our time machine and let's zoom on back to November 2009 when this challenge was given!

Challenge #5: I just Can't Live Without
and here is my layout
I used Lily Bee papers lots of flowers and bling
The chipboard is from Scrapware
Hambly overlays & the metal hardware is by Stampin Up the rest is from my stash

I couldn't live without "This Moment This Day This Life" my wedding day to my darling husband in June 2001
Hope you like it

I made the CT!! - All about me challenge blog

I was so pleased to see that the All About Me challenge blog was going to be up and running again, they were having a Creative Team call so I applied and got picked, from I'm sure lots of many talented ladies.
I am so happy to be working alongside 4 other talented ladies too (go to the blog & check them out)
It's very exciting to be able to share my journey with others & I hope that you will all find some time to join in.
As creators of forever memories we often forget the person behind the lens and so many of us don't actually scrap about our joys, tears and all the other things that brought us here to today!
I am sharing with you the layout I sent in for my application, which tells of the confidence I attain (as a sufferer of Agoraphobia) by spending time with my dog Rodney. . .
The journalling reads "You give me confidence to walk beyond the confines", "with you by my side I can conquer the world". I love this picture of the 2 of us up on Dartmoor earlier this year

 Hope you will all come over and join in when the 1st challenge goes live in December!

The Colour Room #78

Such a pretty colour combo I wanted to play along and decided to go with the card sketch
I am on vacation so went with the papers I brought closest to the palette
Lily Bee designs some bazzil dotted swiss and brads and pearls, for the doily I used a prima stamp and stamped it in white then added some stickles to make it glittery
Here is my finished card which I will be giving my friend for her birthday
