Week 11 of the challenge is the "Human Body". This photo is of a sculpture of a plant swallowing a human & all you can see is the foot still out at the top. It is at a reception centre called "Songbirds" at Mt. Tamborine. Week 12 is "Hello Spring", even though it is Autumn at the moment with the rain & the heat my garden is blooming! This is a blossom on my passionfruit vine & the colours are gorgeous in it. This is the first year I have had lots of fruit on it. Its hard getting to them before the cockatoos or the possums! "Then & Now" is the theme for week 13. I have 2 photos for this. The photo is of My hubby & me when we started going out & the other photo is of us in 2009.

These are a sneak peek at the classes I am teaching in April. The layout with the flowers is called Timeless & it has lots of the new flowers that Lisa has in the shop on it. I also used Graphic45 paper on it. They are all so beautiful. The heritage gentleman LO is called Well Groomed & uses older style papers & embellishments along with cutouts & sewing.
The birthday LO is call boys2men & uses paint & ink to create a grungy look. The Autumn looking layout is called Grow. It has lots of layering & uses different techniques & mediums to create this look.
Here is the sketch & the layout for week 6. I misplaced one of them & got out of whack of where I was up to! This was a quick & easy layout as I used pre-made journal blocks & embellishments. It is an untraditional take on Christmas with the papers I chose but they worked because of the star at the top of the tree theme & for the fact that my son & grandson are stars!!

Right now I'm up to date with the sketches for layouts 5, 6 & 7. Hopefully I haven't left any out. Sketch 5 is the round layout called "Treasures". I punched scallop circles & plain circles that were coated in dimensional magic & layered. Sketch 6 has cut out & punched patterned pieces. Sketch 7 has handmade flowers made from a template & inked & a button in the center.
Here are the next photos in the challenge. Week 9 is "Time". It is of a clock edge that I painted many years ago-I still don't seem to have gained any time though! Week 10 is called "Simple Pleasures". I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this until one night I walked into our dining room & saw my grandson eating icecream & enjoying every last slurp! I took another photo of him licking the bowl!!
