hi.. this last weekend was the challenge weekend for Scrap of Difference..http://www.scrapofdifference.com.au/messageboard2/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=2641 and the theme was TWO OF A KIND.. we have a sketch, a color and a technique challenge..using the theme to inspire the layouts..
the layout called "a special bond' is about my daughter and her special friend Eloni who shared their lives together in Treasure House Childrens Home Fiji before they were both picked up by their family's on the same day in January 2003.. what a wonderful opportunity to get each others details and stay in touch for the sake of these two girls and the bond they have..we were able to re-unite in January 2010 and the girls were able to just get to know each other again.. so definitely a very special two of a kind..
i used lots of die cuts and layered them with foam tape for dimension..(now sorry for the gap...dunno why!!...still learning about these bloggy thingys!!)
scroll down please........
the technique was to do a double layout.. i don't usually do doubles.. so this was a good challenge..
this is of course of my two daughters.. two of the closest kind... sisters...(now for some reason i cant seem to put up the double, or get the two layouts side by side.. but you can get the idea.. the pages are like a mirror image.. ) I will put one layout in each of my daughters albums.. and just a closeup of the flowers which include the new kaiser paper blooms and kaiser dress form..(which i LURVEEE!!) thanks for popping in today.. hope your day is going great!!

http://artasticchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ the challenge was to use the painting for inspiration as well as use multiple photos of yourself, use wings and the layout has to be about yourself.. i saw this quote somewhere in my blog travels and always wondered if i could use it one day.. well now i have.... the reasoning behind the title is that at times i have felt quite useless and not amounting to much, even broken at times.. but with Gods help i have been able to achieve things that have blessed my life.. thanks so much for visiting and sharing your thoughts on my layout..hope you are having a great day!xx

"May God bless and keep you always" for my inspiration and title for this layout of Nisha..i cut up an old calendar for the daisy flowers and the cherub and dove, so make sure when you put up a new calender for the year you don't throw out anything you may be able to use on your next layout!! thanks so much for popping in!!
