A big hello to you and welcome to September.. for us that means Spring.. warmer days and beautiful flowers!

I have a few challenges to post and I thought I may as well just bulk up this post and put the 4 challenges I am on design teams for!!

Ok.. lets go!!!

The latest sketch for CARDABILITIES #130 is so lovely! ( I know I say that all the time... but they are!!)
and the sponsor this time is The Stamping Boutique  which has amazing digi stamps..

The new challenge is up for The 123 CHALLENGE BLOG and it is

To use the color BURGANDY the word SUPER and colored pencils..  well I reckon with this latest craze of coloring in books for grown ups, you could use something from your book for this... but I didnt think of that when I created my layout... instead I thought.....

 water color pencils.. I lightly gessoed my page, then stencilled and then colored in over the stencilling and sprayed with water and used a brush to mix....

and my layout.. closer views..
Super star!!
My son posed like this.. so I took the photo.. and now I have scrapped it.. never tempt a scrapbooking mum!! She WILL use the photo!!!!

The September Challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS was one I enjoyed creating for..
