...beyond the garden gate

Well today was the 'draw day' for the Be Creative challenge. It was quite nerve wracking drawing every ladies name out and seeing which picture would go where. I was quite amazed when my name was drawn out for one of my favourite pictures, a wrought iron gate.

Excuse the bad photo. It's alot brighter and nicer in real life. So, what am I going to create using a wrought iron gate as my inspiration? Well, you will just have to wait and see! I already have a few ideas forming in my mind, so will have to jot them down on paper soon. Oh, I also got drawn the colour gold. So I have to incorporate that somewhere in my end product. Should be interesting! I hope the girls all like their pictures!

The picture above is myself, 2 years ago on the morning of my 21st birthday with my brand new sewing machine. Dad took this photo without my knowing!
Hmmm... how do I make it work??
'Twas definately one of the greatest birthday presents I have ever recieved, and definately the most well used!!

My mum and I visited my Grans grave today. I can't believe it's been nearly 5 months since she passed away. I bought some lovely fake flowers, and stuck them in the ground, and also bought some pretty daisys from our bushes at home. She always loved flowers. :)

Hi Sam!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love the photos of you with your new sewing machine. I can imagine what a great 21st birthday that would have been! I really enjoyed your blog and I'm sure I'll be back!
