For the January ARTastic Challenge we were presented with an interesting image and concept which you can check out here.
Sometimes ideas come like the click of our fingers and at other times it takes a little while with no real connection until you start. This is how it was for me with this layout.
I was out on my early morning walk and disturbed a Kookaburra, who complained loudly but left me a wonderful gift. This became the basis of my layout.
There are very few photos from my early years. This is one of my favourites. I believe that my mum designed and made it for me. It was my "butterfly dress" and I loved it so much that I wore it until it was just shreds and bits.
There is a phrase from a Peter Allen song which says "Fly high, fly proud" and I have that way up high near the ceiling in my studio. It's a short phrase that reminds meof a fundamental for me. That I have to try. Try to reach, try to extend and lift myself to be the best I can be.

We would love to have you join in the ARTastic challenge this month. What will spark you and get you creating? Can't wait to see your pieces. Remember too, it does not need to be a layout. Just make what you are inspired to create.
