The rules for this challenge are - Go to where you store your photos on your computer. Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH photo. Post that photo on your blog along with a SHORT story about it. Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.
OK so here we go I was dreading what it would come up with as I have a lot of photos on my external drive.
This picture is from my holiday to Disney world in Oct 2007 with the my 3 daughters. We stayed at the Disney Caribbean beach hotel for 3wks and this is part of the pool. I bought an Olympus waterproof camera to take with me and it was great, we got some awesome photos in the water and underwater.
This is Shanna my eldest boosting Kayleigh out of the water. We had such a great time on this holiday as you can see we got a good tan.
Ok so on with the rest of the tag, I have to tag 6 people to take part let me see.....
Ladies if you have been bumped before I can understand if you don't want to do it or if you are pushed for time.

The challenge on the Whiff-of-joy blog is to use purple and greens. I cheated alittle and used my distressing inks to make papers the colour that I needed.
The inside of the card is stamped with see d's stamp and then chalked so it doesn't look stark.

I used an image sent to me by a very special friend as I haven't got any Sarah Kay stamps. What a cute stamp this is, I haven't seen it before and it was great to colour. I coloured the image with copic pens. The papers are from K&co, I have added a wash of vintage photo destress ink to make the colours coordinate better. I wish I had used a brown in to place the swirl now but never mind.

I have made this card for 2 challenges. The image is from high-hope-stamps and their challenge this week is dry embossing. I have used my dots folder by cuttlebug. I used my gold ink pad to highlight them to go with the colour theme of the card.
I did say I used this card for 2 challenges, the other challenge is papertake-weekly challenge and this is the sketch that Dawn has created for us to follow this week. I have gone for a plainish card for me but I think it worked out ok in the end and is not to boring. I hope you will agree.

I used my reinkers to make the papers the colour that I wanted. The other stamp set used is from inkadinkado stamps caled rock star they have been used for the front and inside of the card. The paper stock on the inside was white at the beginning and then I used the re inkers and ink pad to make a suitable paper for the inside of the card.
Pink posion stamp: Rockstar Anya
Inkadinkado: Rock star
Paper pizazz: Red music background
Basic grey: Red
Both papers have been coloured with Tim Holtz reinkers to make them more compatable.

Isn't he just the cutest dragon ever. He is called huggable Hank. I have coloured him with my copic pens.
The post card writting is part of the paper, I have picked it out with 3d lacquer. In the corner the sentiment is 'Sending you a great big hug'
For the inside I used the same blue paper and coloured some white shimmer paper with green chalks so that it matches better and stamped the sentiment.
High hopes: Huggable hank
Aud stamps: round sentiment
Funstamps: sentiment inside
K & co: Awnings
Coloured with copic pens
Thank you so much for popping by and taking a look.
