I'm leaving on a jet plane....don't know when......

HAHAHAH!!! Ok, seriously, you don't want me to finish singing for you!!!! BUT I am leaving tonight for ............ AUSTRALIA!!!!!

As some of you might remember, my sister & her family are living in Cairns, Queensland as she is on a teacher exchange! Well, I am headed there TONIGHT!!!!

Soooooooooooooo excited & so nervous! I've never flown that far! I am headed there with my other sister & her hubby. Tim is staying home with the dogs - I wish he were coming but he isn't much of a traveller & 16 hours on a plan is wayyyy too much for him!!! :(

Anyway, I have most of my DT stuff done and scheduled to post so hopefully Mr. Blogger is on top of things while I'm away! If I get a chance I will update with some pics here, but it depends how much fun we're having!!! LOL

The Stamp Fairy Challenge.....Try a NEW technique

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN, this is my 3rd post for today! THANKS!!

Hello everyone! This is for The Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and their challenge this week is to TRY A NEW TECHNIQUE!! I have wanted to try a Side Step card, so I thought this was a perfect opportunity. I found a tutorial that looked pretty easy to follow, and it wasn't - so I "winged it" and this is what I came up with!!

I will have 3 posts for Mondays, so please be sure to scroll down to see them ALL!!!! THANKS so much!!!!

The paper I have used is Basic Black (SU) and the DP is from Basic Grey. I have used PIRATES 1 and the SKULL FREEBIE. The treasure map and bottle are from Dustin Pike and the sentiment and parrot are from High Hopes. It is all coloured with Copics and crystal effects added to the bottle, the parrots beak, and the skull on the map (which is why they are really shiny...they must have caught the light from the flash! OOPS!)

I hope you will head to the blog and see the incredible samples the DT have created and check out The Stamp Fairy images! So many cute ones being released every week!!!!
Check back next week for another great challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a GREAT week!!
