Its hard to believe we are up to week 6 of the Celebrate New Zealand competition over at Scrapbook Outlet. This week its my turn to post the challenge and kiwiana questions.
I must admit that week 6 come around very fast, and I was not at all organised, so I whipped up this lay-out at mid-night, the night before I had to post the challenge!

My page has that 'very quickly thrown together ' look about it!
I have used stamps to decorate my white background, added a little embossing

.... a few sprays of Glimmer mist, pearls, a handmade star, and a wee light house that come all the way from Germany (thank you Hannah).

The theme for this week is New Zealand songs, and the challenge is to use a NZ song title, or lyric from a song either in your title, or in your journalling. I have used Dave Dobyn of course, because he is my favorite NZ singer...I may be showing my age here!!

We have had a very wet afternoon here today, which was wonderful as it gave me an excuse to escape to my craft room and catch up on a little scrapping.

I like your LO Sonya - I don't think it looks "thrown together" at all. :-) Love that you've used stamps ... that's what I want to do more of!

You are so clever throwing things together at midnight. Also a Dave Dobbyn fan. Love all the detail in your layout. Great challenge - wish I had had time to do them. (not so clever at midnight myself lol).

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
