SIA is the Aussie version of CHA!- A Scrapbooking Trade show!
The theme this year by SIA was What if.......
I presented a number of layouts and items as a DT member for Scrapware and was given the theme Alice in Wonderland with the colour choice of Black-White and Red.
SIA had a What if.....competition consisting of 1 layout and 1 card
Here's my entries!
I don't ever do cards so this was a challenge in itself.
I made it into the finalists and now these form part of the entry into the other 1/2 of the competition SIA had called the Diva competition -this will be announced late next month
by Magazine Scrapbook Creations - I'll keep hoping!
This is the 'Album-Journal-book' that I designed last year
and was released by Scrapware at SIA!
Back of book - showing Jewelry I made. (it was a necklace but I converted it for the book)
Here's some pictures of a number of the pages inside
(too many to show all of them!)

I was trying to get a vintage-retro feeling to the layout and a little more childish-playful.
The edge is a few layers of panel stitched fabric and hessian.
This is for the same TCR #5 palette.
The focus for this layout was not the photos but more the tags
and labels of my daughters clothing.
I wish I had more pictures of the clothes I wore when I was a child
but I mostly know what my mum tells me.
If only I had those visions to remember in my head or to see
- that's why I decided to do this layout for my daughter.
Loads of fabric, tulle, lace and all things girly!
Till tomorrow! Bye. G.
G45. black Satin, Prima flowers, Scrapware chipboard, Shimmerz and Glimmer mist.
(when the gl/mist was still wet i rubbed some off to create different texture and tone on the vine branch)
The pictures are actually mounted onto different heights of chipboard adding more dimension
