Make it Crafty Blog Hop

G'day, today over at Make it Crafty we are celebrating
"Australia Day"
with a
BLOG HOP!

And as if that was not enough we have some


What is Australia Day? Well in short, it's the day that the first fleet of convicts arrived in Sydney Australia (yup they are a bunch of convicts!! haha) but today they celebrate what's great about Australia with family and friends and it usually involves a few snags on the barbie (sausages on the BBQ to you and me)!

So let's celebrate amongst friends from around the world and share some crafting inspiration with an Aussie Outback theme!

If you're already on the hop then you should have arrived from DEBBIE otherwise if you want to hop from the start head on over to say G'Day to AJ


 "Aussie Outback Sheila"
available HERE
Here is a close up, the digi stamp is coloured with Copics, unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the Copics used, sorry. 
The sketching of Uluru behind the Aussie girly was done by yours truly in coloured pencil.


Now I guess you're looking for the next mate to hop on over to??

Well before you do... Make sure you leave a comment on my blog for your chance to win an Australian Souvenir. Each of us will be selecting someone from our comments to receive a little Aussie Souvenir from Zoe!

PLUS Zoe is offering 20% OFF store wide at Makeitcrafty.com until the 28th January! Hurry on over (when you get through the hop of course!) to grab some bargains!!


OK OK... It's time to head on over to see my mate Jenn D
Thanks for celebrating with us!! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!!

Crafty Hugs
