Little Miss Pink

Little Miss Pink
Fell down the sink.
How many miles
Did she fall?

Hello! Firstly, my apologies again to those of you that comtinue to check in to my blog when I haven't been able to do the same back to you. I've just been super-busy. More on that later.......

The new Mini Challenge is up at More Than Words and the challenge is to use the word "Miss" on your card, tag, ATC or postcard.

Here's my tag.

I was thinking about how to use the word "Miss" when an old saying popped into my head. We used to use the "Little Miss Pink" saying (see start of this post) when I was very little to choose who would be "he" in chasey or hidey (hide-and-seek). Each person would put one foot into a circle and one person would say this Little Miss Pink saying, tapping on each foot as they spoke. A number would be chosen and that number would be counted after the saying. Whoever's foot was the last one counted would go "he". It was so long ago I'm surprised I can still remember this!

Did anyone else do this or was this just a thing at my primary school?

Anyway, I hope you can join us at More Than Words this month. You can find the challenge details here.

Happy scrappin'!

Welcome back! Have you seen the challenge at Kraft + this month? The challenge is to be inspired by Shakespeare. Ooohhh, now that one's got you thinking, hasn't it?

The first thing that came to my mind was the famous Romeo quote. I remembered I had a photo of my daughter on a hotel balcony and I could just picture her saying "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?"

I added lots of balcony-themed images like windows, doors and flowers.

I hope you can join us this month. You can find all the details here.

Happy scrappin'!

Keeping it all One Colour

Hello again. The new challenge has just been revealed at More Than Words. You have to be inspired by the word "Goodbye" and use a Monochromatic colour scheme on your project. I said "Goodbye" to autumn and used a range of rich browns on my art journal page.

There are heaps of different layers on the background. I hand drew some leaves too which I thought were pretty cool!

This old walnut tree is in front of our house.

I hope you can join us this month. You can find more details about the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!
