CSI Detective - newbie - me!

I am sooooooo excited.. I feel a mix of pure AMAZING mixed with violent stomach churning sick! I am so amazed that I have been selected to join the CSI Design Team for Nov - Jan. I am really looking forward to this.
I tried to find a picture which shows just how happy I am, but nothing seemed quite right, but I thought these Macarena dancing cats shows it best...

Clowns 2013 digi layout

I used the amazing Tinci Sweet Afternoon Mini Kit provided at Pickle Berry Pop for the Mystery October 2013 challenge. I've not done that before.

I found some perfect photos for it - from my childhood - roundabout my 12th birthday when my brother and I were acting up after using a face painting kit in 1970 something.

Nature Girl 2013 - digi layout

What can I say? I really enjoyed the bird like challenge and this almost hippie image to use as inspiration! I used one of my favourite pics from my childhood - I was about 14 years old in this one - it's the only picture of me where I think I look pretty. (I was actually at the Ricketts Sanctuary - amazing outdoor sculptures of aboriginal artist William Ricketts)

I wanted a page that showed the nature that I grew up with; hence the Yellow Rosellas - endemic only to my local area (slightly digitally altered one of my rosella pics to get a flying shot), the woodland trees, the river, and the splashes of colour of the wildflowers.

Follow This 2013 digi layout

I got excited as soon as I saw this palette and sketch at The Color Room. Waited like two seconds before I got into it. I love these colours together. So modern and crisp!! And I loved the sketch!!

The Color Room Palette 160
So, this is what I ended up with. I was really happy in the end. Sometimes pages just come together - this was one of those. Refreshing. Used photos of my cousinette Violet and her Dad (my cousin). The photos are actually from 2011 but I felt they really suited the palette. Violet is an outdoors girl, on her first pair of skis at 2 years old, and this year got a baby sister after 4.5 years of "only child syndrome". I used my photos of one of my petunias. 

Will have to come back and put the Ingredients in.

Arabian Love 2013 digi layout

I was really inspired by this photo for some reason, even though my layout did not have any candles in it or had anything to do with a birthday. I loved the colours and all the black! I used 11 letters in my title to match the 11 candles on the cake.

Pixels & Paper Challenge Blog October 2013

my page Arabian Love 2013 for pixels and paper challenge oct 2013
The journalling reads : "I've loved Arabian horses since the early 1980's. I joined the society in 1984 as a silent member and still belong today. I study lineages, and love to paint them, but the biggest thrill was in 1999 when I saw River Oak Imprint IRL (in real life). This is a photo I took of him. OCT 2013"

I really enjoyed doing this page and editing my photo so I could have the horse like this for my page. Will come back later and put the ingredients in. Lots from Far Far Hills. The flowers are from Pickle Berry Pop.

Second to Amir El Shaklan (imp) River Oak Imprint is my next favourite stallion in Australia. I kind of lost a bit of my passion for the Arabian horse after Amir El Shaklan (imp) passed away. He had been around the whole time since I was first interested, and left like he had left a bit of a hole. But I've recently gone back into them, and tripped over a small album with this photo and several others - the only Arabian horse show I've ever been to. Being asthmatic and allergic to horses makes being with them indoors impossible for more than an hour. Even on this occasion I still ended up at Out Patient's - but it was worth it!!!

Ingredients : will populate later.
