Magazine ATC Swap & Award

Magazine ATC Swap

This month's theme for the face-to-face ATC swap is to use magazines and here are my cards:

It was actually more challenging than I thought it would be, but I'm sure these will do for the swap.  I quite liked two of them, so kept these for myself.

Blog Award

The gorgeous Kate Crane awarded me with another Blog Award ... thanks so much hun.   There are a few "rules" for accepting this award, namely: (a) thank the person who gave the award ... tick; (b) copy the logo onto your blog ... tick; (c) link the person to your blog ... tick; (d) pass onto 7 others ... tick (see below); and (e) list 7 things that no-one really knows about you ... hmmmm, I'm pretty much an open book, so will list a few things below that hopefully others don't really know about me, so ... tick:
  1. I always wanted to be an archeologist, but never got around to getting an education in this field.
  2. I left school after finishing year 10 at the ripe old age of 15 (ie, didn't go on to year 11 and 12 to get my Higher School Certificate), but still managed to complete a Bachelor of Business degree part-time as a mature age student.
  3. I love all the Harry Potter books and films and am in awe of J K Rowling for creating such an imaginative story, that has taken the world by storm.
  4. I love living on the land and am considering going back to university to get an agricultural degree.
  5. I never understood people's obsessions with their pets, until we got a dog of our own ... I am utterly in love with my pooch Beau and want to take him everywhere with me ... our holidays are even planned around getting pet friendly accommodation!
  6. When I have an ATC deadline looming, I spend every waking moment creating what I'm going to make in my mind ... it doesn't stop until I make a draft ATC, so a lot of the time I've got to "just-do-it" or I end up having sleepless nights.
  7. I avoid conflict at all costs.
I pass this award onto some fabulous creative people whose blogs I love to frequent:-
  1. Kyla deRuiter -
  2. Tanya French -
  3. Belynda Duffill -
  4. Barb Thomas -
  5. Bevlea Ross -
  6. Elizabeth Harms -
  7. Samantha Marshall -
That's all for now, until next time keep creating up a storm.
