Lets Get Sketchy have got a Christmas Edition of the online magazine.

I created a couple of holiday layouts from our holiday way back in 2008 when we did a 5 week caravan holiday from Tasmania to Queensland.

This photo is of my son at Currumbin Wildlife Park.  We visited zoo's and wildlife parks on our journey as Sam had at the time a strong desire to become a vet.  His love for animals continues, but now at 18 he has changed his mind!!!!

Here are some close ups - I have listed the products below the close ups

Papers - Bo Bunny 
Petaloo Flowers
Fussy cut butterflies from Kaisercraft Paper
Chipboard – Dusty Attic
Kaisercraft Project Life Cards
Kaisercraft and Scrap FX Stamps

The second holiday layout I created is from the last day of our holiday when we were about to board the boat back to Tasmania.  Bucketing with rain, gail force winds, we drive around the last corner to the boat and the wheel fell off the van breaking the bolts.  We had one hour to spare, and at that time I was very pleased my husband is a mechanic and managed to do a make shift repair so we made the boat!

and again some close ups:

The chipboard clocks and cogs have been painted with Inklingz Paints and then Dusty Attic Rusting Powder applied.  (loving this new product I got!)

The stencil is from Crafters Workshop and I have used a crackling texture paste.

Products used:

Paper – Bo Bunny
Chipboard – Which Craft Do you Do, Kaisercraft & Dusty Attic
Distress Ink
Crafters Workshop Stencil
Prima Colour Bloom Spray
Kaisercraft Collectables

Dusty Attic Rusting Powder

We were also asked to create a Christmas Layout using non christmas colours:

This is a photo of my Dad's animals.  My step mum is an amazing animal trainer and she often creates a photo for Christmas cards with her pets!

Here are some close ups:

Loving the prima products in this layout!  Here are prima flowers and a prima resin - I have painted the resin with Inklingz watercolour paints.

and the last layout is a winter layout - this photo is of our letter boxes at the end of our street, when it snowed at the start of summer

I used a Prima Stencil and modelling paste, then applied Shimmer Paintz spray.  The chipboard is from Which Craft Do You Do and I have used Puff Paint to create a snow effect.
