Archi-scraps - I'm Late, I'm Late.....

Hi Ladies

This month over at Archi-scraps the challenge is to use this pic for your inspiration and clocks as the criteria! 
You can get to Archi-scraps here.

 This is Sydney's General Post Office building, which is heritage listed.

 The criteria this month is to use a clock or clocks.
It can be in the photo or on the page somewhere or on your card.

Here is my interpretation of the challenge....

I'm Late, I'm Late... For WORK!

Someone changed the time on our work clock in the cafe at Bunnings (Mill Park)...I thought I was late for work!

Here is a close up....I used a clock face as my base and added a few clock aswell...and of course had to add the white rabbit from 'Alice in Wonderland' too!

Thankyou Julene and Archi-scrap DT girls for another great month of inspiration!

Green Lorikeets by Cathy McClelland

The CRITERIA is to use PAINT on your work.

Here is my page for the challenge called.....

'Let your Dreams Take Flight 

I painted around a cereal bowl with Jo Sonja's  'Burnt Sienna' acrylic paints and plopped it down in the corner, I also painted around the edge of the page and added splatters.
I used this photo not only because it was green (I ran out of ink in my but because it is a photo of Bern and Cin (friends) and Steve and I, feeding Lorikeets at Currumbin Bird Sanctuary in the 80's on a very cold and miserable raining day!

Here is a close up...

Pixels and Paper - Been There Done That

Hi Ladies!

The challenge this month over at Pixels and Paper is TRAVEL themed inspiration! If you would like to join in the challenge, you can find it here. The inspirational photo is below....

 I took the map and pinned points of travel as my inspiration.

Here is my page for the challenge...

'Been There Done That'
 I saw something similar on my bloggy travels (as you do!) but from memory it was a map of the United States, I wanted to do a similar page but showcasing my Aussie travels.

Here is a close up! 

Journalling says....I love travelling!! I have visited quite a number of places in Australia. In the late 70's I flew to Perth to stay with friends and then drove back along the Nallabour (now that was an experience). I have been to Broken Hill and Coober Pedy on our way to Alice Springs, (climbed to chicken rock at Uluru)!! I love my travels!

Thanks for a travel challenge Jane and DT girls.
