a MOMENT lasts all of a SECOND, but the MEMORY LASTS forever
{DDCC #69: DT Project}
I had to do a 21st photo shoot this past weekend for Chelane and thought it fit to use this sketch as a starting point for the DVD Cover. The photo of Chelane was printed on white cardstock with an inkjet printer and then cropped. All the designer paper are from Basic Grey. The stickers and embellishments are from my personal stash.

Sketch 69

69-Front

Isn't this scalloped circle with the little holes just gorgeous. I used the new Creative Memories punch to create it. This punch is a 2in1 bliss as it makes the same scalloped circle without the little holes as well, by just flicking a switch. The diameter of the scalloped circle is 5cm. Doing Life, a consultant for Creative Memories, currently stocks this punch so if any of you residing in South Africa would love to get your crafty paws on it, just email me. The cost is R310 + R35 postage.

I am entering this creation for the following challenges:
  • Crafty Cardmakers: #12 - What is New? {I used my newly acquired scalloped circle punch}
  • Creative Inspirations: #43 - New Year, New Products { I used my newly acquired scalloped circle punch}
  • If the Shoe Fits: #17 - Use Chipboard {The 'lovely'embellishment at the bottom is chipboard}

69-Saying

Once again I apologise for my lack of visits in blog land as I am a bit pre-occupied with planning for the next Doing Life Makaranga Scrapaganza on 30 January 2010. Hopefully by early February my presence will be more visible amongst my bloggy friends.

  1. Good afternoon Desire

    What a beautiful l/o, I adore the colours.

    And that punch is indeed gorgeous, so clever to punch the co-ordinating circle. I bet they don't sell these anywhere in the UK, but I'm going to have a hunt.
