Challenges galore!

First of all a huge thank-you to Alexis Smith who gave me  this lovely Stylish Blogger Award.  Make sure you check out her blog, "Scrappin' Sistah",  here.  

So here is the deal with the award:

After receiving this award I link it back to the person who sent it to me, then I list 8 facts/statements about myself, and finally I pass it on to blogs I have discovered recently!!

So here I go:
1.   My favourite product is Glimmer Mist (followed closely by alcohol ink, and.. ...oh there's too many to list!)
2.   The last concert I went to was.... Lady Gaga.
3.   One of my fav movies is The Hangover.  (...that ...and Forest Gump)
4.   I grew up in the Australian bush, but had an American accent (thanks to my Mum)
5.   I get most of my scrapping done late at night at the dining table.
6.   I love Zarrafa's coffee.
7.   I arrived at my wedding on a Harley Davidson bike.
8.   Parasailing is on my bucketlist.

And now to pass the award on to two wonderful blogs that I have recently found:
*Wendy Kwok, her amazing work can be seen at  Capture Each Moment.  She has a heap of gorgeous layouts and projects on her blog.
*Tara Orr at her stunning blog  (make yourself a coffee, sit down, and enjoy the eye candy)

I've been getting a few layout done...yay!  Thought if I push myself to do these challenges I'd get more scrapping done. And it worked.
So here are my entries.
The first is for Creative Scrappers 

The next challenge is a sketch challenge at The Scrappiest.

The last layout is for a recipe challenge at Debs Creations, where we  had to use the following items on our layout;  chipboard, ink, pearls, paint, stamped image/texture, lace/ribbon, circle, and hidden journaling.

 The crochet doiley has been hand dyed.
 I've used a variety of techniques on the A2Z Scraplets chipboard, including inking, embossing, and painting with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint.

 I've stamped and journaled on the tag, which tucks into a pocket behind my photo.
