SWV April Sketch Challenge

Sine posted a lovely sketch for the monthly sketch challenge at SWV. This is what I came up with. I apologise for the shadows - with the later and darker mornings it is harder to find a suitable sunny spot to photograph the layouts.

Entry for White With 1 April Challenge

This is my layout for the White With 1 April Challenge, which was to use white and coral, and to journal on the photo. I just took this photo of Megan about 4 days ago, while we were walking on the beach at dusk in Mackay. There is lots of cutting, lots of pink/coral coloured pearls, bling and doodling. I am really happy with the result.

Home again

We are home again after spending a lovely week in Mackay with Lea. I'm sure Lea and family are still trying to recover after having us there for so long!!! The first half or so was really wet, so was good indoors weather.

Last night I created this entry for the April White With 1 challenge.

New Products

For the last 6 months or so I have been using an awesome range of skin care products called Larissa Bright. They are made by a lady of that name based in Townsville. They are fantastically priced, and so lovely to use. I am really happy with the condition of my skin since using this range of cleanser, toner and moisturiser. Last week I got the make up range - foundation, eye shadows, blush, mascara and lippies. It is all mineral based, and is so nice to use and wear!!! If you ever need a new skin car erange, I strongly recommend trying this product range out.

Scrapping Retreat

So you don't miss the chance to come along to this fun week end retreat, I have brought this post back to the top again. I am all booked and paided for, and flying down from Mackay early on the Friday morning. So looking forward to it!!!!!!
