Scrap Lounge masking SBS :)

Hi Guys

As I mentioned at the start of the month I was honoured to be asked to be a guest DTeamer at the fab forum Scrap Lounge :)

As part of my creative fun was to do a step-by-step on masking, which can be found here :) :) :)

I also did a couple of extra layouts as examples of using a different type of mask as both a mask and a stamp :)

Photo's taken by dQ :)

Why don't you cheek out what the fabulous Kym did with her masking tutorial as well :)

Cheers and Happy Creating, Lou xoxo

Your just amazing Janet!!!!! :) :) :)

Ive been a little emotional this last couple of days as a mate is going thru a recurrence of her cancer. Today she visited her Oncologist and has got the low-down, and a 'treatment plan'!!

One of the most amazing things I have always admired about Janet from the very first moment I met her was her 'Out there Bravery' and 'Strength'. It defies emotional logic STS. She is Truly incredible!!

I am so blown away by her and her Bravery, and her Strength, and fighting Spirit that I made it the topic of one of my Scrapbooking Memories Masters Layouts [the entry for journaling/ephemera] I had actually hidden the journaling as it was a little too private and heartfelt for me to share. I promise to share it when I know one way or the other if it is a HM or not!

I also dedicated another layout to her bravery for my first layout to be published in Scrap365, which I will be able to share soon.

Janet you know I couldn't find the words when we spoke the other night but you also know that I can create around what I feel for you!!!

You are in my heart and my prayers!!

Much <3

Fight On Janet!!!!!
