Guest Designer Gig

Here's my last card from my Guest Design Gig over at The Alley Way Stamps.
The set is called Petal Pushers and it's pretty fun to work with.

Colour Q Challenge #259

Well it's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at the Colour Q.

Let me explain this page a minute.  I took these photos of my kids at the beach last week.  We've been having a warm and sunny September here in Vancouver.  And there is not school yet as the teachers have been out on strike since June.  As I am both a teacher, and married to a teacher, it's been a tough financial ride for us.  But spending the morning on the picket line gives me time to spend with my own kids.  And taking them down to the beach last week gave me a lot of unexpected joy during a really stressful time.  

The great news for me was that I woke up this morning to the news that the labour dispute has finally come to an agreement in the wee hours of the morning, and on Thursday we we vote to ratify it.  So hopefully the schools will be open next week - YAY!

It doesn't matter where you live, I'm sure you can agree that we should expect our government to follow the law, and when the break the law they should be held accountable.  And this was a major part of why we were out on strike.  I did it for the future of my children's education.

So enough of the political rant, and back to my page.  I really like using the dark background.  I think it really sets of the rest of the colours on this page.
I used these kits to make this page.


And this fantastic template

Colour Q Challenge #256

A few weeks ago we went on a multi-day camping trip.  Yes my back survived multiple days on an air matress.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to a nearby provincial park.  It was very organized for the long weekend.  This particular weekend they hold their annual lantern festival every year.  It was very organized and a lot of fun.  The parents wound up doing most of the work, but Brad kept bragging to everyone that he was married to a papercrafter so I was bound to come up with something great.  Well, it wasn't horribly original, but I made a solid lantern.

Anyway, I digress...
This week I used the latest kit from Mye De Leon, to create this great page below.
Hop on over to Colour Q and check out the great samples from the Design Team.
