Let me start by saying how excited I am to be on the Twiddleybitz Design Team. Just a few short months ago I was having a bit of a mojo-less crises of confidence as far as my scrapping was concerned and decided I needed some new scrapping goals. One of those goals was to try out for a manufacturer's design team... I kid you not... I put the thought out there and lo and behold I have a message on facebook from the Magnificent Mel THE VERY NEXT DAY!!! I gotta tell ya it was a wee bit weird... I started thinking she was some kind of super-hacker chick that had spied on me reading the Twiddleybitz DT call on the ning site the night before!!!!!! Then I get chatting to Tiff "THE TERRIFIC" Sawyer and found we have much in common... and Mel "LissyK" Connell (one of my VERY first favourite scrappers ever) joins the DT too... yep, it was just meant to be! ;) I am so glad to be part of such a wonderful team and I am always really inspired by the wonderful work all YOU chickies share in the gallery too. I found my new home adn it sure is warm and comfy! ;)
OK, OK, I know I bang on a bit... so here's a few of my most recent LOs...
watch ya THINKING 'bout? I really love this photo of my darling boy and...
I am loving my DYMO Labeller again lately (inspired by Tara Scobie)... but I had run out of black tape so this is a free font download from da font. Another excellent way to hide crappy handwriting... I really am struggling to just let things be on my LOs at the moment... but I like how this one turned out in the end.
Now, at the risk of looking like a tight @#$% scrooge [YES, ANDREW, I KNOW, I KNOW!!!! ;)] I split these scrolls into two and misted them. Cheap you [HE may] say? More bang for your buck I say! hehehehehe ;)
I used some coffee stained sheet music (I chose this piece especially because of the title)... some scraps, a twig and some rusty wire... a Hambly Screen Prints rub on and a BG office tab (quite possibly my favourite BG embellishment EVER!)... and of course some TBZ Musical Notes (simply inked with black Versa Color Cube).
This is why I got my sewing machine out in the first place... I really stuffed this LO up... it was coming along really nicely (it is a very close lift of my own FOREVER LO) then I had a brain fart (as I am prone to do on more than the odd occasion) and thought I could free hand drawn the butterfly's path with a black marker... it looked crap so I tried to sew over it... that looked even more crap... so, as I usually find more is so much more... I just kept sewing and sewing and sewing (hey, no use getting it out for one little stitch now is there???) until I think I kinda like it! ;)
Just click on these links if you'd like to read more of my Twiddleybitz-ing misadventures... you might get a laugh out of my lesson in what NOT to do... about my ill fated (but quite good looking in the end, even if I DO say so myself) Curly Christmas Tree...or my post about my Floating Frame.
I hope you are enjoying the blog hop so far... I KNOW I am!!!!
Don't forget to leave me a comment... I'd love to pick YOUR name for the pack of goodies I have sitting here! ;)
