My daughter, Alicia was linked to by Anne at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge earlier this month, which she hasn't actually let anyone know about yet.  As some of you know my daughter and her business are going through a tough time over the premises she rents and a huge increase in the rent.  Anyway to cut a long story short Alicia told me about the linky thing and that Anne also hosts a monthly challenge....and you know how much I love a challenge.  So here is a layout I created for the challenge about my Country over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

If you would like to see the layout that Alicia was featured for it is here, which also happens to be the layout she won last month with at Once Upon a Sketch.


  1. Mar - it took a whole day of interruptions to get here to see this, but WOW I am so glad to get here!!! I'm reading your story of the link to Alicia's wonderful layout - and this makes me doubly glad that I link to wonderful ideas and to those who play on our blogs and their successes with contests and publishing.

    ... and I LOVE your wonderful layout. So glad you stopped by the visit us over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, and I sure hope you come back to play along often!!

  2. Hi Mar. It's so lovely to see another layout created with Australia in mind - a girl after my own heart! I just love your choice of papers, that gorgeous rosella in amongst the native flowers are a wonderful accompaniment to your photograph. And I love love love your handwriting but I think I've told you that before on a different layout.

    Thank you so much for joining us at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month and I hope to see more of you.
