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 unpacking...so 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 pic...so pretty!
Here's my page...
The Sassafras Lass Sweetly Smitten papers fitted perfectly!
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 goodies...so 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, Nati, Chloe 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!
