July, here we come! Challenge:102: Celebrating Relationships!

and the TWIST is

work in pairs of things.....

So, to be clear, the challenge theme is 

Celebrating RELATIONSHIPS.

Relationships aren't just about what happens in your love life! 
Most important relationships do involve feelings but don't involve any romance, 
for example with family, friends, work colleagues, pets and teachers.

My pictures below are not a pair but two photo's of the same humpback whale


....but I was thinking of our relationship with them now, especially compared 
to our murderous relationship with them in the past, when whaling was a
way of life here in Tasmania in the 1800's.


We (or maybe I should say I) love to see these majestic animals in our local waters on their annual migration to and from the Antartic. These two photographs are a wonderful celebration of the current relationship where they no longer fear us as predators. 


Brilliant photos of Humpback Whales heading north past Cape Barren Island thanks to Peter Marmion. Humpback whales travel northward to breeding areas off the coast of Queensland and Western Australia between May and July and return southward to their subantarctic feeding grounds between September and November.
Cape Barren Island (Palawa kani: truwana), part of the Furneaux Group, is a 478 square kilometre (185 sq mi) island in the Bass Strait, off the north east coast of Tasmania, Australia. The largest island of the Furneaux Group, Flinders Island, lies to the north, with the smaller Clarke Island to the south.
You can also follow Peter via instagram 👇

There are several pieces of design Team inspiration for you today apart from the photographs




Background paper is double sided, have used both sides for my double page spread.
Two photos have two people and both of those photos have been double mounted.
Two flowers on left page, plus two circular embellishments on each page.

My pairs are:
- mom and daughter
- two colors
- two designer papers
- two dies for the frame
- two set of two flowers that each have two flowers with two inks on the petals

Now you have four weeks to create your own piece of work around the theme of

Celebrating Relationships!

Please, no stamps used in your work - we are UNstampABLES

Final Week for Challenge#101: Magic!



Hello Peeps 
The last week to bring out the magical and create something that represents 

Magic 

for you and as a TWIST can be related to one of the many Walt Disney films made over the years since the early 1930's.

Googling Walt Disney films gives us three pages--it is pretty easy to just link to an idea and create something quite magical!

While you do not have to follow the twist to enter - it is fun, a further challenge AND 
you might be chosen as a DT Favorite!

Remember - NO STAMPS.
We are still getting people entering pieces of work where a stamp is front and centre.
They are just disqualified.

The usual prize is available

$15 Aust 
payable either through Paypal
or as a voucher to an on-line shop that accepts Paypal 

Our team are all struggling with Corona related issues or technology issues
this week and so there are no inspirational pieces to show you

Please remember you are  not restricted to cards

Walt Disney made lots of films - nature and the environment features
as do animals and birds--and even inanimate objects like cups and saucers!

Last Week for April Challenge -

Hello Peeps - hope that nasty virus is leaving you and yours alone

We are still surviving

Guess what - it is the last week for the challenge for April

Creative People and/or Being Creative

 TWIST -  name a creative person you admire
 and CASe a piece of their work

We have some lovely pieces entered but unfortunately we still have people using 
either digital stamps or stamped images - we cannot accept them

Please make sure your piece is an UNstamped piece before entering


Some of you are aware that in Australia and New Zealand we commemorate a day in late April
 as a National Day


 This stands for Australian and New Zealand Armed Forces 


For the first time since 1919 and the Spanish Flue we have not had a march or public gatherings for this and many found this would be very hard to accept.

It was suggested that we all go to the top of our driveways or onto our balconies at 6.00am
and with a candle and our phones turned to the Canberra Dawn service hold a memorial and a minutes silence there.

Across Australia on Saturday morning at 6.00 am thousands of us gathered to remember
with our candles in the early morning light
I was so proud of our country 


Geilston Bay

In the dark people waited and the trumpet and guitar and harp and clarinet players 
put their best foot forward and played the Last Post and Revally for us
It made the hair on my body stand up and I cried

This is the card I made as a result



It is for the artistic part of the challenge

I have not attempted the TWIST with this one

You have a week to enter and we look forward to seeing what you have created. We hope you create or you CASe something and enter it - remember - not with stamps or digital stamping.
