Some Odd Girl - Fun Day

Super late post, I know. Really.. I should be in bed, but all I've done is cough today - so dropping off to sleep is proving a little more difficult than I'd like. So I thought I'd stop by and share the project I made for the Some Odd Girl - Facebook Fun Day Challenge.

I don't know about you guys, but I've had a blast today. I haven't really been feeling 100%, and I've been in and out of the house, but I think I've caught up on most of the action. The mini tutorials and quick sales, along with the banter all of the ladies have been providing on FB has been fantastic! :) I really hope Kristy and the team make it a regular thing! :) 

So.. before I waffle on anymore. Got washing to sort out and fold before bed yet. Goodness.

 Now be warned.. I think this is the first SMASH* post I've made on my blog, although I have done a few more pages.. so.. I hope the photo is clear enough - I've been playing around with the best angle and stuff, and cannot for the life of me get it to look straight. I took about 8 pictures of the same page and they're all skew-whiff. So I've chosen what I believe to be the best two to show ya..

Still the most wonky thing ever.. but.. meh. I've used the gorgeous and oh so cute Shy Kaylee. I've printed her out at 5.5" which is a little bigger than I normally would, and I had a blast colouring up the creases in her top. Of course I had to add some turquoise tips to that quirky hair style of hers too! :)  

So the challenge was a BRIGHT COLOURS challenge. You guys know I love teal/turquoise yeah.. and what colour goes so well.. only ORANGE?! How much brighter could ya get? Heehee.

Polka dot socks. Yes please! :) I really do despise my handwriting, but as a load of ladies have said.. it's your SMASH* book and your own hand writing is the ultimate personalisation. Right? I've added a heap of stuff.. Pebbles stickers, Cosmo Cricket alpha stickers, MME papers and rub-ons, Sassafras button flower, Papermania and Doodlebug brads. Washi tape, twine, twill stripe ribbon. Yummity stuff.

So I'm off to get the rest of my chores finished up then off to bed for me. I oh, so hope Mother Goose allows a lie in tomorrow - I'm pooped! LOL.

Over and out.
