To celebrate my other baby's birthday LIL'RED ROCKET that is, we are hosting a sketch challenge for the month of October.
This month I decided to join in for a change and so here is my example.

 Ive used one of my all time favourite LRR buttons here, a red apple button you may also notice one of our new vintage tags, designed by yours truly and....

one of my other favourites a red gingham button.
I have distressed them both with a little brown ink on the edges to give them that worn/aged look.

Here is the sketch. We would love to see your entries with a fabulous Lil' Red Rocket prize pack full of our new release buttons for the winner and rainbow button packs to be won by our 2 runners up.
You don't need to use Lil' Red Rocket products in your entry but you will need to post your entry on your    blog and link your post back to the Mr Linky Link in the LRR side bar.
All entries need to be in by October 30 and Australian and international entrants are all welcome.
We will announce the winners in early December. I hope you will join in to help us celebrate our second birthday. HERE is the link so pop on over and check out some of the other DTs awesome creations and help us celebrate our birthday. TFL xx

I was sent October Afternoons new range 'Boarding Pass' in my DT kit from
HANDEMADE BY SUZANNE this month (thanks Suzanne).
My mojos been a bit missing of late but once I started working with this beautiful range it didn't take me long to find it again. I say this every time OA release a new range but, this is my FAVOURITE!!!
As you can see you dont need to use holiday photos with this range as travel comes in many forms.
Now for a few close ups......

 LOVE that hemp twine available from

 and the OA Chip and Sticks are so gorgeous and heaps of fun to layer to give some extra dimension!

Lastly my favourite quote. I love to travel and think this quote is just so true. I couldn't resist adding it to my page.
Now that Ive found my mojo again, I cant wait to get stuck into more of this range.
Just before I go Ill leave you with a little sneak. Its for something special that I cant share with you until later in the month.

Thanks for visiting and thank you for all your love on my previous posts. TFL x.

So Toto-ly Cute

 Im back with more from The Magic of Oz.  I was pleasantly surprised how easy these papers were to use but, I have to admit that at first I was a little scared.
The colours and the illustrations are just so lovely and everything ties in so well together. I think maybe that is half the battle.
I did however have to put my thinking cap on to find some photos that I thought went with the whole Wizard of Oz theme so, yes Im sorry for the corny title but its the best I could do LOL.

 Ill leave you with a close up. All PPs, Prima Love Notes collection and even the button making supplies can be purchased from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE. TFL xx

 Yep Ive been MIA again. Things have been pretty crazy, We have moved back to good ol' SA and after staying with my folks for about 7 weeks  now we are finally back in our own place.
Ive got LOTS of catching up to do here but for now Ill just share this latest page.....
I was sent Graphic 45s new range The Magic of Oz in my DT pack from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE this month and I hope Ive done it justice because these papers are beautiful!
The colours are so rich and the illustrations are gorgeous.
Suzanne also sent me the Love Notes Collection by Prima and that stunning tree by Dusty Attic.
Ill have more LOs to share made with this range over the coming days so I hope you'll pop back for a look soon but for now Ill just leave you with a close up of some of the details.

 Yep Ive been AWOL lots going on. Good and bad. Sorry for the absence.  I do however have a few things to show you. Not because Ive been busy creating but because Ive been a slack blogger so, here goes.
These first 2 LOs are for HANDMADE BY SUZANNE using my awesome DT kit this month. I was luck enough to get Yacht club by Websters. I m sorry that the pictures dont do these papers justice but I LOVE this range. My favourite by Websters so far.
Ill have more to show from this range soon.

 A simple card using Crate Papers Portrait collection. Also available from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE.
I signed up for Christy Tomlinsons SHE ART workshop and its so much fun. Im really enjoying getting messy with paint and canvases again. Its been a while and I didn't realise how much I missed it.
This is my second attempt. Not really happy with how it turned out but it did help me learn what I dont like and how to do it differently next time so its all good.
This is my first She Art girl. The quote says alot about how Im feeling and our families current situation so it was really therapeutic. Cant wait to start number 3.
Another little card. This time using more Websters from Ladies and Gents.
OK thats all the shares for now. I hope to be back soon with some more for HANDMADE BY SUZANNE and something for THE POLKADOT PLACE. The newest kit SO BEAUTIFUL!! TFL x
