each week there is a bonanza challenge...this "diva" layout was for week one...we had to use only the colours in the photos, one word title, monogram, staples, a quote and place your photos into a shape......i actually was voted third with two other wonderful ladies!!! woohoo.....Anna won for week one and it was sooooooooooooooo deserved...she created an amazing layout....head over to the gallery and check it out!!! the photo of this is a shocker but thats night time photography for you......thats what i get for finishing it only a couple of hours before cut off!!!! i was soooo happy to receive a third vote...thank you to the ladies at i have a few more points towards bonanza!!!!
this layout was for the week two challenge...a sketch created by DT leanne...we had to follow the sketch exactly and it had to have the star and a handmade embellishment in the bottom lefthand corner...thats why i have a dodgy flower on it!!! hahahaha.....i couldn't make a decision about this layout...i kept changing what i was going to do so i got the s#@*s with myself and used totally black and white!!! that took all the procrastinating out of the decision process...anyway this is what i ended up with...the photo was taken at club med ria bintan in was a trip mum and i achieved with undercoverwear!!!!
