New month, new sketch and new DT!

Hi everyone! It's been a strange January for me.  No running around getting kids ready for school. I'm almost feeling a bit lost! Lol! I'm sure the feeling will pass quickly though. :)
There is a new sketch up at The Scrapbook Store. Another beauty designed by Nadia. :)
Here is my take on it, using the beautiful Kaisercraft 'Tropicana' collection.  Just perfect for some of our Bali photos.  This is my DD and her bestie having cocktails in one of the many restaurants we ate at.
A close up of some of the fussy cutting. :)
More fussy cutting. :)
And the title I cut using my Silhouette machine.  I am determined to use it a LOT more this year. :)
I hope you are going to play along with the sketch.  There is an awesome $40 store voucher up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw, so anybody can win!  Pretty awesome hey? You can read all the latest news in the newsletter HERE.

I also have some great news to share.  I am one of the new DT members at SCRAP AFRICA! Thank you to Denise and Evgenia for the opportunity. I am so excited to join this wonderful team of talented ladies.  Here is the list.

Until next time.

Congratulations on your new DT - they are lucky to have your talent! Wow to this beautiful page! You're right - that paper range is perfect for Bali photos!! So have both your kids completed school now? Are they at uni?? In your home town or away? My eldest is already in her 3rd and final year (although she's staying to do an Honours year) but not here so we have to drive 2 days in her new car to get her back there next week!!
