Last Years Masters!

I've been scrapping a bit lately but nothing that I can share ... yet.
It's an exciting time right now, with girls waiting for "THE CALL" from Scrapbooking Memories to narrow them down to the top 50 and then later on to the top 10 in Australia. For my friends that aren't Aussies, The Masters here is a little like CK Hall Of Fame. You have criteria set and need to create layouts and other items accordingly. I've entered the last three years and been fortunate enough to receive Honorable Mentions each year for pieces of my work - it's so exciting to get the call. I can only imagine that it is unbelievable to be chosen in the TOP 10. Unfortunately, this year, due to an exclusivity rule and me writing articles for Scrapbook Creations, I couldn't enter but since I've been thinking of the all girls I thought I might share the mini album I made for last years entry - the criteria was that the album had to be about yourself. I loved making this - it was complex yet simple at the same time. I didn't receive an Honorable Mention for this - the standard was so amazing!














Hope I haven't bored you too much but I really wanted to post something - hopefully I'll have something to share next time. Good Luck to all the girls this year!

Leanne - that album is amazing! That deserved at least an honourable mention. I would love to be able to see it in real life - it looks so tactile

OMG Leanne!
This is so amazing!
I can remember the album but I don't remember the "box" and this is more than a box! This is just amazingly (<--can we say that?!) creative! I LOVE this!

you're too good!

Kathryn said...

Leanne this is stunning. I wish I had the time and the creative fingers to do this! I'm a little frightened to do OTP but the album looks like a good starter. I'll file it away for when the need arises to do an OTP! Thanks for sharing, it's lovely.

Leanne, your work is always amazing! The album/box certainly deserved an honourable mention. Very inspiring too!

The inspiration & planning that went into this are mind blowing.... I can't believe you didn't receive any recognition for it..... This is heirloom stuff! Absolutely inspiring!

Oh Leanne - WOW doesn't even come near what I'm thinking about this one - once again to those who are the decision makers - I OBJECT!! You should definately have been chosen in the top 10 - what are they thinking (or maybe they're not and that's the problem!)

Your album of yourself is like an onion.
remove one layer and oh my, there is another, and another, and another.

So beautiful and crafted with love. It radiates how much you put into it.
I do like how the emovabe journal label is inset into the Hambley layer. very clever.
the cord and feathers are very feminine.
just goes to show how high the level of being a master is.
I have envied your style from afar for a while. Clean and classic.
I am finding that your influence is creeping its way into my LO a bit.....
thanks Leanne.
