Home and Away.....

...that is the title of Mr P's and my daily soap. I have been an addict follower of HOME + AWAY since I moved to the UK (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when...). Mr P has been an addict even longer than that and when he was in Oz back in 1996, he simply had to have is picture taken overlooking "Summer Bay", the fictional seaside town of the soap.

I found that the background cardstock I created HERE was prefect for the picture and to top it all off, it also works for the second challenge over at KASSETTENKINDER, where the requirements ask for the use of the colours blue, green and yellow.

** click on image to enlarge **
Cardstock - Poundshop ** Papers, Stickers - American Crafts ** Mist - Cosmic Shimmer ** Chalk Ink - Clearsnap Inc ** Deco Tape - Pink Paislee ** Brad - Upsy Daisy Designs ** Tools - Bubble Wrap, Sequin Waste ** Other - Embroidery Floss, Pearls, Rhinestones, Australian Postage Stamp, Flowers

See the flower at the top left corner? I misted the blossom layers with different colours of Cosmic Shimmer, so that they would fit in, neat hu? I know that this is old news but I never did it before....I am SO behind the times. But as of now, only white flowers and trims will make it into my stash so I can dye them with mists and inks to suit my needs.

Lately I have been extremely blessed to have had oodles of my work been picked up for publication - amazing, really that right now almost everything I submit gets picked.
Recently I have had a gift container published in Ready, Set, Create - a layout in Scrapstreet and my most treasured - a double pager in Cards! Just look at how wonderful the card was displayed by the mag

And right now, I have another card and project in he pipeline for Ready, Set, Create and a layout to appear in Scrapbook News & Reviews this weekend.
 I am so thankful and feel very blessed indeed.
