Its hot here today and predicted to get even hotter tomorrow, so i have spent the afternoon inside with the air conditioner being my friend (smiles) and have done a couple of pages in my Art Journal.
Mid January just cant come soon enough - a friend has kindly lent me some magazines, stamps and inkpads - but i am soooo missing all my own craft stuff too lol.

Libby from Libby's Crafty Scraps has very kindly given me this award - thanks Libby.

So there are some things I am to do to receive this illustrious award - some rules to keep it growing:

1. Copy picture and post on your blog
2. Thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself we don't know:
a) I am left handed.
b) I used to be a member of Project Jonah in New Zealand and attended many whale strandings.
c) I hate asparagus !
d) I love watching Rugby league.
e) I would love to get a tattoo one day of a dragonfly.
f) I love eating anything cherry flavoured
g) I love hot weather !

Here's the two wonderful new digi images I got to play with for this weeks New Releases

and here are the two cards I have made with them, using the challenge recipe

Both images were coloured using copic markers and as I am still waiting for the bulk of my craft supplies to arrive from New Zealand, the remainder of both cards were made with scraps and bits and pieces I managed to squeeze into my suitcase (smiles)

Enjoy the blog hop and Robyn's wonderful new releases and have fun with this weeks challenge !

Journal pages

Slowly settling in here in Australia.
Got my priorities right lol - found a good papercraft store and also an art supplies store here in Bendigo so brought a few essentials to keep me going until my things arrive from NZ, which probably won't be till mid January.
Spent this afternoon creating my first Journal Pages, since moving - this double spread was inspired by 2 things - firstly watching some of Teesha Moore's YouTube videos on journalling and secondly when I was sittng having breakfast this morning, I spotted 5 kangaroos bounding down the road next to the house. Had to do a double take to make sure I wasn't seeing things and then smiled as it made me realise how different a view I now have from when I was in NZ.
