Just Add Ink #106 Sketch

This week the lovely Bron has come up with a fab sketch to challenge us over at Just Add Ink!!

When I first saw the sketch I couldn't wait to get started, however once I did I realised my mojo has gone out the door :(
Lucky I'm going away up the coast for a long weekend (starting today) and I think that will rejuvenate me!

So here is my take on the sketch

I've used
Paper -Whisper White, Real Red and Big Top Birthday DSP
Ink - Daffodil delight
Stamp Set - Birthday sentiments by Amy R stamps
Other: Pinwheel die, Brad, bling and Nestabilites

Here is the sketch for this week

I can't wait to see your take on the sketch, so jump on over to JAI and link up!!

The Pav

Ohh a while back on Australia day I mentioned that I made a pav from scratch for the first time!

Well it turned out fantastic BUT I did forget to get a photo of the whole thing. I managed to quickly snap this one on my phone before I shoveled it ino my mouth  :)

Sorry it's not the best photo but I thought I'd share anyway.... bet it's got your mouth watering???

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday filled with lots of laughter and love.

Just Add Ink 104 - Back to School

WOW my first creation for the Just Add Ink team as a Design Team member!

I'm thrilled to be on the team working with such lovely ladies :)

The challenge this week is just add Back to School.  I've made my creation with all the Mums out there who need to get reorganised now their kids have gone back to school. But you could always dress this up differently and it could be used for your children's desk as well.

 There are three compartments
- one for pens
- one for post notes
- and the one in front is some cute little sticky tabs I got from Kikki K

I've dressed up the front with some pearls and a beautiful paper ribbon that my BFF made - you can't see it very well in the picture but I sprayed it with shimmer mist so it's all sparkly! 

Nothing like beautifully organised stationary to get you motivated to get all that back to school paperwork in order!!!

Head on over to the JAI blog to enter your creation in the Back to School challenge this week.

Super exciting news.....

I've wanted to be a part of the Just Add Ink family for a while and I can't believe that I've been chosen to be on their Design Team.

I'm completely thrilled and overwhelmed at the same time.
I seriously teared it up when I read the email that I'd been chosen!!!!!!

All the JAI DT ladies are so talented and inspiring that I know I'm certainly going to need to put in 110% for all my creations to keep up with them!!!

There are also 3 other new DT members to welcome on board so pop on over to the JAI site and check them out!

I'm really looking forward to working with all the JAI team.

Keep your eyes on this space for my first creation for JAI very soon!!!!
