Sixx:A.M.-Pray For Me Music Video (NEW)

..at the risk of sounding like a cracked record..I LOVE Sixx A.M. LOL...but this song??? You will see my driving around with this cranked right up...ALL the time. This is my favourite song from the soundtrack.
Pleaasee do not think im glorifying heroin use. I am horrified at what it does to this world..but i do admire that this mans' spirit..as broken and lost and the fact that he could smell death on him each and every day..gave way to an appreciation for his life...just when it was almost too late..and now?? he helps so many other people faced with this ....and the children of those with a debilitating addiction...like me.

The Orphanage trailer (ENGLISH SUBTITLES)

oh boy..do i need to see this.... can . not. wait.

Been a little slow.....

Ive been a busy gal this week..my little sister turned 31, I worked ,I joined FACEBOOK!!,I have been attempting to make a dent in my deadline list...so..the ol'blog got the back seat.


Needless to say...I have a couple of things to show you..





New Pink Paislee papers..yum!!!and this was my DT effort for the Stamp on a Layout challenge.....(the butterflies!!!!)..Same photo zoomed out....more stamping with the pink Paislee clear stamps which are in a word........YUMMMY!!!



The kids were dressed for "rainbow day" at school......they raised 3,500 dollars for the Cancer Council.....just by gold coin donation....and butterflies that they made and sold at the Relay for life day.....

..These are my Art Journal pages for the Shop and Crop art class...this month were experimenting with image transfer.......using the Gel Medium method....

Id love to give a HUGE thank you shout out to the Incredible Viv Bonder for the help she gave me a while back in working this method out..I used to do heaps of image transfer in highschool using thinners...but its not so acid free....LOL.....

and then a few Lusi Austin inspired quilling pieces...some more hot glue....

...and some watercolour crayons......

and another huge thank you to Brian Froud for the art that has always inspired me.....in fact..the top little pixie...is my tattoo!!
