Nkat Issues and Project Life

Are you a Project Lifer? 
It is a quick and easy way to keep your scrapbooks about the everyday.
I'm afraid to start as it would mean another job for me to keep up with
but if I was pressed for time and scrapping just for me
it would definitely be a goer!

Paper Issues has teamed up with Nkat Designs to offer 
a 3 month subscription to her Project Life Kits.
They look a bit like this but contain heaps more!

To be in the running all you have to do is......

3. Link up a project here and leave a comment.

I'm going to link up this page that I made for December's

Hope you play along and are enjoying your festive season.
Happy New Year!!

A Challenge!

I haven't had much time lately for challenges
but DH was away last week so I snuck in a bit of daytime play
(don't tell!). Kraft It Up was the first one I managed to finish,
and inspired by some photos that I took for the
Dec. Crop Kit at S&C (I designed it)
I put together this page with a rare pic of my
two youngest happy together!

There's not a lot to it, some mists, patterned paper stars & cardstock stickers (inc. alphas)
from Echo Park, Dymo, Tim Holtz Kraft PP, machine stitching,
and some craft wire I got in a kit from the divine Lou Nelson 
(which I have never used before on a layout but am now totally converted to).

Why don't you play along too?

I feel blessed to be designing for them.
Playing with their vintage findings and book/magazine pages,
the punchinella is divine and comes in so many different shapes, sizes and colours,
and they have lace, and washi,and corrugated cardboard that you
don't have to pull the top layer off...... Sorry, I'm gushing.
But, Hey, that's what Gauche Alchemy does to you!
