I thought I would have a go at Nicole's sketch #3.





There are so many challenges and sketches to choose from it's getting bit overwhelming! More birthdays for men. I was pleased with this and love the natural colours. The sentiment is stamped and embossed with blue ink clear ep and did resist technique with brilliance ink. Love the effect! The rest is pretty simple... die cuts (of course!) & I put some eyelets in the corner to balance the embellishment.







My Photo Booth....



This is by no means anything special and I just wanted to show you as I've had some lovely comments on my photos but really anyone can get theirs to look this way. I tend to try and take pictures in the sunshine (when available). The picture will show just how simple and versatile my booth is.... Tee Hee




See so versatile.... I can drag chair anywhere under light source, I can change the backdrop to any decorative paper I have in stash. I tend to NOT use my flash I find that it changes the colours in your creation. Sometimes if it's dull I will put it under the a bright light. That's it really, nothing fancy just simple and easy to manage. One day I might actually use this backing paper and have to buy some more (what a shame).

Thanks for stopping by! HuGs :)

How clever is your photo booth?? You know everyone is going to use this idea now, don't you? Well, I know I am! Lol!

I enjoyed seeing your cards, too. You made a great card of Nicola's sketch (where I found the link to your blog). TFS!

I use that technique too, my chairs are brown leather so they are the perfect backdrop and as you say they are easy to drag into good light! Great minds....
