Look at me – back again and four days in a row!
I have some very exciting news to share with you today – well to some its no longer news but I’m still over the moon about it! This past week I received an invitation to join a new Scrapbooking Forum and thought to myself ‘well I did say at Christmas I wanted to do more scrapbooking this year’ so off I went and joined.
A day or so later I get a message from the forum owner (Erika Martin) and she asks me if I’d like to be on the Soul Scrappers Design Team!! Well after picking myself off the floor I did check with her first to ensure she had the right person and she said YES!!! Soooo I said Yesssss too! Its a huge honour to be asked to be on a Design Team for someone who does such awesome scrapbooking like Erika!
The forum is such a great place to be a part of and I’m still amazed at being on the Soul Team! They’ve already had some new challenges posted to the forum and they look really good – there will be sketch challenges, technique challenges, theme challenges and also some for Digital Scrapbooking. Now the one posted this past week that I wanted to have a go at was the “About Me Challenge” from Erika.
I originally was going to start with a brown theme and baroque motifs however after pulling out umpteen different Designer Series Papers I opted to go with colours that match my photo’s and couldnt work out a title for me so I figured for a page about me I should share the things I love so I immediately thought of the Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin kit – if you remember I used this for yesterday’s Utah Divas Sketch challenge card.
I couldnt get a patterned paper to work from the kit so I went through my stash (and believe me this took some time!) I opted for the pretty floral paper from Candy Lane Desiger Series Paper pack.
I love these hearts!
The adhesive die cuts that come in the Simply Scrappin kits make any layout look good!Â I’ve torn vellum to go behind the “I heart …” letters just to lift and make them stand out better. All the things I love were printed and cut up and I put the small adhesive die cutÂ hearts on each one.
Its been so long since I’ve done a layout it was good to sit down and play with photo’s and paper again – I even found the little photo printer we have and the photo paper without much searching which is a good thing considering we’ve just moved furniture around in the house and this is a sure way to put something in such a safe place that it can never be found again! I’m sure you know what I mean.
Now if you’d like to do more scrapbooking or even learn how to do it why not come and join Erika’s new forum at Soul Scrappers or just click on the Soul Scrappers banner below or over in the sidebar on the right.
