sharing my buzz

Hey all

San here......for this post I am being totally self gratifying and sharing my excitment for 2012. Every year for the last four, I have entered the Sydney Royal Easter Show. I have been honored with two seconds and a highly commended....but this year, i cracked the big one...I WON!!!

The excitement was high in our house for a few weeks and still now I have a silly smile on my face about it. Anywhooooo...sharing the winning layout with you this post.

It was a double (eek), only criteria was photos, journal, title, and either stamping or sewing.

Its a layout about my Great uncle, who turned 90 last year. We are very lucky to still have him in our lives and love spending time with him.

I used a couple of WOW ebony flourishes on the pages. the black is so solid, it enhances without taking over the page, and works so well with the hertiage look I was going for.

close up of the pages:

and just cause I can! (hehehe)...heres my First place ribbon that is hanging in place of honor for the next year.

Have a look at your local shows, they will all have scrapbooking categories and I am sure they would love entries from locals. Go for it!...its a buzz to win a ribbon
And.....dont forget to add some WOW to your entries!

And speaking of winning...have you checked out the May Sketch Challenge at WOW.
Grab a copy of the sketch and have a go.

Happy Scrapping, San x
