It was a painful process trying to pick just one.....
but the winner of my 'peek-a-boo' challenge this fortnight is:

Helen Wallace!

Congrats Helen!   :)    I just loved the symbolism in Helen's 'Cocoon' layout.  The cocoon shaped peek-a-boo tied in just perfectly with the beautiful cocoon in the pic.  Just gorgeous!

Welcome to our new blog. Let us know what you think and what you would like. This week we have the divine new Bo Bunny in store.

Fortnightly Challenge | 15-28 August

Hello Lovely Ladies!!

It's my turn this fortnight and you guessed it.... I want to see 'Peek-A-Boo' styles!  So start ripping, tearing and peeling back to reveal whatever is lurking underneath! :)

The rest is entirely up to you.. the more inventive and imaginative, the better!

I've been a bit 'peek-a-boo' mad this month, but here is one example:

{i wish for you}

Your peek-a-boo can appear in the corner, as I've done above, along the edge, or even in the middle, as I have done in this layout.

You have until midnight on Sunday 28th August to get your 'Peek-A-Boo' on and upload to the Fortnightly Challenge thread.  The winning entry will also score a $10 Voucher from the Boxx Shop!!

Have fun!

Book Of You Kit | July 2011

Hello Guys,

Well the Book of You Kit is my baby for the next 6 months and I'd love for you to all play along with me.

The first kit is all about 'Things I Remember'.  Things from your childhood that might be tucked away in all the nooks and crannies of our memories.  Things that we may not think of on a regular basis.  Things that we risk loosing forever if we don't get them down on paper!

Here are the goodies:

The kit itself is a real mish mash of goodies including LYB, Lilybee, 7Gypsies Conservatory and Pink Paislee pp's, tissue tape, LYB Bliss lacecut frame, Kaisercraft Blooms, Scrapware chippy alphas and a couple of sheets of cardstock too.

For my first sample layout I have employed what I call a 'blind typing' kind of technique.  Just type all the things that come to mind.  Don't look at the monitor, don't correct grammar or spelling... just type.  Let your mind wander through the years, starting with your earliest memories and slowly moving forward.  They can be events, things, people or feelings.  I've gone up to the age of 10 or 11.  You could even do one layout for every decade if you like.  You'll be surprised what you come up with.  Leave the corrections and formatting until last.  I then decided to form my journaling into 'thought bubbles'. 

{things i remember}

For my second layout, I decided to extract one of those memories and highlight it in a page of it's own.  I was really surprised by how much I remember from the three years I spent in England as a child, so I found a photo of the town we lived in... and even found our house on Google Earth!  lol.  I really enjoyed the whole process and hope it helps you retrieve some long lost treasured memories.

{home away from home}

Full instructions are available in the Book Of You Kit Club.

Happy treasure hunting!  I hope I have helped you unearth some old memories that were almost forgotten….
