I scrapped!

It's such a rare thing for me to sit down and actually do a layout. I really need to rectify that situation and do a lot more scrapping. Although firstly I do need to get some of our digital photos printed. But I did do something yesterday, I've been looking for a design to do as a make and take for workshops and this is what I came up with. An 8x8 page and a matching card using the left over product. I love it, and am very pleased with the outcome, if I do say so myself.

Don't you just adore the Recollections Paper that SU have? It's so yummy and I love how it all matches our cardstock. Really takes the guess work out of doing a layout.

Also I just wanted to say a big thank you to all those that have left comments on my blog recently. I'm very happy you like my work :-) makes me feel all warm and gooey inside to have such nice feedback. Thank you.

I Challenge You!

First off, let me start by apologising for taking so long in updating my blog. I have been creating and have a stack of samples to post. It's getting the the computer to be able to fix them up in photoshop which is the problem. But I promise I will post something up tomorrow.

Now, to the nitty gritty. I know that there are people out there that read my blog *big wave*, hello. But I would love to hear from you, so I'm going to issue a challenge. I would like you to create something, using any SU product, then I want you to email me ( a photo of your finished product which I will then post on my blog. That's the first step. Simple :-)

At the end of the month, when hopefully someone will have emailed me some photos, I'll ask for a vote and the winning pic will receive a prize. Which will be something yummy and gorgeous and you'll love it! (SU demos' are ineligible to enter the draw but can certainly post a pic)

So come on, get cracking and don't forget to leave a comment that you're going to have a go, I'd love to know how many of you are attempting it.
