My introduction over at Kreatorville Krafts is up!!! Click here to go and check it out... Keandra had some wonderful things to say about me ... I'm still blushing ... I love you too sweetie!!! She asked us to introduce ourselves not by means of an interview, like most sites do, but ... being creative as she is, she asked us to do this on a LO. She had given all the Kreators a sketch to work with ... now let me tell you, if I've learned anything from this experience, it's that I'm not a sketchy kind of girl!!!! I struggled so hard with this, and the LO shown below is actually my third version! Yep, I chucked two LO's (perfectly good papers aaargh) in the bin. But ... I'm really quite pleased with this one.
Normally I have a clear vision in my head of what I want the end result to look like. It doesn't always end up like that, but the vision is usually there LOL. However, with this LO, there was no vision ... I just played around, adding stuff, not really knowing what I was going for. I was all ready to add my own journaling when I asked my family to help me out and say some things that would describe me. My girls said the sweetest things (they're still at that age where they adore me...), but my hubby and son started fooling around, saying all those things I'm not, like skinny, great cook, etc... or highlighting my weaknesses (scrapping addict, internet addict, ...) I was a bit annoyed at first to tell you the truth, but my sense of humour won and pretty soon we were all joking around. This gave me the idea to not take the journaling as serious as I had originally planned. To read the journaling, please click on the image ... you might learn a thing or two you didn't know about me yet, and it might even put a smile on your face...
Now I've been talking a lot about the Kreatorville Krafts November Kit, so it's high time to give you a little sneak peek ... This is one of the LO's I made with the kit.
The only things I used on this LO that weren't in the kit are my embroidery floss, paints and inks. All of the papers, embellies and alphas came with the kit. I'm telling you, this kit is awesome, perfect for girls' LO's, boys' LO's, artistic LO's, clean LO's ... everyone will be able to make something out of this kit! Mark your calendars ladies, the kit will be revealed on the 21st of this month. Don't wait until then to visit the site though, Kean has some RAK's she wants to give away ... Here's the link again.
I made this LO for my best friend. She's been going through some difficult times lately, and when I saw the "One day you will" (by Lady Antebellum) on my friend Lisa's blog, I instantly knew I wanted to use them to make a LO for my friend. You should be able to read the lyrics by clicking on the image.
So, this is turning out to be a huge post again, but I did also want to tell you about a wonderful internet friend of mine, Marit (I'm sure most of you are familiar with her awesome work) who has started a new venture. She will be teaching on line workshops in the future, and because of her blogiversary you have a chance to win some RAKs, but also a spot in her very first workshop!!! Go and leave her some love and you might just be the lucky winner!
I've also received a blog award, you know the one where you have to answer some questions using just one word, but if you've made it this far I'm not gonna try your patience any longer, I'll leave that one for next time!
Love xxx Peggy
