Exciting News!!!

I have been picked to be one of the 3 Scrapbooking Top50 Design Team Members!!! I'm so excited!! I am taking on this position along side Sue and Susan. Two very talented scrappers!!
I am super stoked to be accepted for this 3 month position starting Sept 1, as i got a taste of it this month with the August cc, and i loved orgainsing it all!! I ca't wait to get my kit of goodies and see what i can create to hopefully inspire the other lovely ladies on the forum!! :)

Scrapbooking Top50 August CC

I am taking part in the Top50 August Zany Zodiac CC at the moment. It runs fro Fri 7th to Friday 14th August, but entries don't need to be uploaded til August 28th, so there is still plenty of time to join the fun. You ca find all the details here. I kind of highjacked the organising of this CC with another of the forum mods, Sue, and it has been great seeing everybody enjoying the challenges.

So far i have completed 2 of the challenges.

Challenge 1: 'Shining Bright' - For this layout, we had to use a sketch and all things glittery and shiny. These are pictures from Jorja's 3rd b'day last month showing her Lisa Simpson cake that Nanny Burdon made for her. Whenever we asked what she wanted for her b'day all she would say was a Lisa Simpson Cake!! lol she is too funny!! :)
Challenge 2: 'Star Crossed' - this one had to be embellished with stars!! I think i managed that!! lol!!
A new twist to the challenges this month was that if you made a card with the scraps from each challenge, you got a bonus point, so here is my card for challenge 2. I am yet to make my challenge 1 card!! :)

Tonight i hope to get to challenge 3, but i will see how i go. :)

Now to August!!

Now to get up to date with August, i have so far completed 2 of the August monthly challenges at Scrapbooking Top 50. You can check the challenges out here.

I have finished challenge 3 which was a scraplift of a layout by the very talented Charm Koch. Mine doesn't look half as good as Charm,s but i have used dome of the elements that she did.
I have also completed challenge 4 which was a technique challenge. The technique was sewing, and i had to use two types of sewing, machie, hand or faux!! I love how this turned out and it has been pointed out to me that the spelling is wrong, but oh well, it will give the kids something to laugh at when they are older!! :)

More July Top 50 stuff!!

I took part in a xmas card front swap and here are the four catd fronts that i made. I love my cuttlebug!! :) Everybodies cards looked great and now i have a nice little stash started for xmas!! :)

These are some cards i made from a Top 50 class with Renee Dowling. I love how they look and they were so easy. Thanks Renee!! :)

Top 50 Xmas in July Cyber Crop

I am really really bad at updating my blog, so i am going to show all of my layouts and cards that i made for the Xmas in July cc here together, then i can try and get up to date with the August layouts!! :) Sorry!!
Challenge 1: Blind scrapped xmas card. (Sorry if i have already shown this!)
Challenge 2: We had criterias. I had to use a mask at least twice, use something see-thru, and have a layering effect with ribbon and flowers. I think thats all!! :)

Challenge 3: Had to use the word 'Giving'
Challenge 4: Was a scraplift of a layout by Ngaire Bartlam. I used the July kit for this one.

Challenge 5: Was to use a funny photo
Challenge 6: Was all about the edges.
Challenge 7: Was to make an OTP card box in xmas colours. I made ine look like a mail box (if you can't tell!!) :)
We the had a mystery challenge, where we had to use a photo that we had uploaded in a photo challenge.
And finally i took part in the Christmas Celebration Challenge. My criteria was to use 'Happiness Is' in my title, use 2009, have hand made flowers (cut with the cuttlebug) and swirl, and i think the last criteria was to have two pics!!
That was a whole lot of scrapping for July, but that wasn't all i did!! :) I will start a new post with the rest!! :)
