Scrapz Daily Challenges

On our recent holiday down south we spent a lot of time on the beach.  It wasn't quite warm enough to go swimming but the kids had so much fun exploring the rock pools finding star fish, playing in the sand and collecting shells..  Anyway...last week's Scrapz.Biz daily challenge theme "Footsteps" was the perfect excuse to scrap some of the pics we took.  I've set the Fetch a Sketch challenge and all the details can be found HERE.

First up here's the sketch...

And here's my page...

 I've used the Pink Paislee Nantucket range...such a beautiful collection for beachy pages.

I've also set this week's Noteworthy (card) challenge.  The theme is 'Up In The Sky' and you can find my sample card and all the challenge details HERE

Here's a little sneaky peek...

I've used the gorgeous new October Afternoon Sidewalks goodies on this card.  I think it's my fave OA range yet!

If you'd like to join in any of this month's daily challenges you've got until 31 October 2011 to get your entries in.  You could win a voucher to spend in store!  All daily challenges can be found HERE.  :D

A scrappy catchup...

We just got home last night after a lovely 10 days or so down south visiting Paul's parent.  Lots of fishing, beach walks, exploring rock pools, park visits and spending time with family...SO nice!!!  We're still I haven't even thought about downloading pics from my camera yet so I'll come back with some holiday pics soon.

In the meantime I need to catch up on some scrappy posts!  Last week I ran the Inspiration challenge over at Scrapz.Biz.  I chose a pic from one of my fave magazines at the moment...Mollie Makes!

There were loads of pictures amongst the pages I could've picked (this mag is fully loaded with inspiration!) but in the end I went with this totally gorgeous pretty!

Here's my page...

The Sassafras Lass Sweetly Smitten papers fitted perfectly!

Another closeup...

So that was last week. :)  This week we're celebrating World Cardmaking Day 2011 with some fun card challenges!  All the details can be found HERE.

Here's my sample card for Challenge #1 - my What's Cooking challenge...

I love these fun October Afternoon Rocket Age perfect for little boy projects!

You'll find all the details of this challenge (#1) HERE.

My other challenge (challenge #3) is to create a Christmas Card.  After all it's really not that far off!  Eeek!  (Details HERE.)

I stamped my background and chalked it a little to add a little extra green shading.  I then cut the baubles from some Echo Park paper, added some rhinestones and bakers' twine and finished it off with some stitching and a sentiment. :)

There are some great prizes up for grabs!!!  Why not come and join us and add a few cards to your stash!?  Visit HERE for our challenge timetable and prize details.

Today we also announced our fabulous new Design Team girls!!!  A HUGE welcome to Aga, NatiChloe and Shell.  (I'm thrilled to have you all on the team and I just know it's going to be so much fun working with you all!)  With our new team we're shaking things up a little with some fresh new challenges and a new format...and there'll be a new challenge each weekday!   It's going to be a lot of fun! 

Ok...I think I've covered everything for now.  I'll be back soon with some holiday pics! :)  Thanks for dropping by!
