I have been blog hopping and OMG some of their work is out of this world! It will be tough to chose the final 10 - glad it isn't me who has to narrow it down :P I decided to create 3 new projects especially for Round 2 - something that reflects me and my style and my capabilities :) So spent last weekend playing and then left them for a day to ponder over and give final touches to before posting off. Hope the glass front doesn't break on the way eekkk!! Anyway I have decided to share - all projects had to be sent by yesterday so there's no harm I guess rofl!! And you know me - love to share so here it goes

Layout - the photo is one I took when playing with the camera off auto at the beach a couple of weekends ago - hence the photographers talk for the title!! Lots of distressing and ink and chipboard :)

Card - I tend to overthink cards and turn them into little masterpieces - only addition to this card is I added lots of beautiful mica to the flowers

and my OTP item - I chose a clock to alter - bought a cheap one from Homeart here and it was hideous lol - pure white background with primary coloured butterflies scattered on it....well a bit of paper, 3D mount tape and lots of playing resulted in a very Steampunk inspired clock! Now to pray it makes it in one piece - it has been wrapped up very carefully!!!!

Well there you have it - all 3 projects!!! Thanks for all the special messages too - it is nice to know people are excited for me!!! Off to clear up my scrap desk and scrap some more :)
