A cool give away and some LOs

Wow - you should check out the cool give away over at Sam's blog. Check it out to be in the running to win this.
Also - just wanted to share some more LOs. Firstly, here is one that I did for the May Top50 monthly challenges, had a lot of fun doing this is a LO of all the colours and swatches (or representations of) everything in the new house. I really like how it turned out.

Next is a LO I did with the May kit from my local LSS, Scrapville. This is actually the second LO I have done with this kit and I still have heaps of product left. I love how this LO turned out.

This is a close up of the cool little apple I made....thought I would try something completly original (if it has been done by anyone else I haven't seen it) and I really like how it turned out...and it was so easy to do!

Next is the first challenge for the May CC over at Top50, "Lights, Camera, Action". In this challenge we had to do a LO based on a movie poster of one of our favourite movies and it had to me smaller than 12 x12.

This is the poster I chose - from one of my all time favourite movies "The Slipper and The Rose". As a side note, if you are a romantic soul and don't mind singing and dancing in a movie, then this is the perfect movie for you. It is the story of Cinderella in a way you have never seen before. I recommend you grab a wine and a blanket, turn up the TV loud and be wisked away into a world of make believe. Anyways - I digress.

I was, of course, inspired by the LO of the poster and used it as a kind of sketch, but there are several other elements in the LO that are not quite so obvious. I tried masking around the photo and papers to imitate the look of the flourishes in the poster (OK - you can't really see it, but I tried none-the-less). The title was also inspired by the theme of the movie and the flowers by the title. This was a really quick LO and I really like how it turned out.

Well, that is it for tonight. I will have more to share by the end of the week I hope as the challenges for this months CC at Top50 are awesome - you should go check them out. I have done 1 and really want to get the other 3 done.

Hugs to everyone...MWAH
