I am now a Designer for Scrap Africa!!! :)

A couple of weeks ago Evgenia from Scrap Africa sent me an e-mail asking me if I would like to be a part of their team. Of course I said "YES PLEASE". I have loved this site since they first established it. Their challenges are always fun, and sometimes require you to think a little out of the box, the sketches are always super inspiring. I am so happy and excited to be a part of this team, and look forward to the fun journey I am going to be taking with them!!

So, for my first challenge I have created a layout for Sketch # 5. Here is my layout :

This layout is about my youngest son Jamie, and how he calls me "my sweetheart" rather than Mom. It started more than a year ago, I am not sure why, but I absolutely love it. It makes my heart very very happy!!

Most of the product I used is from the Year-O-Graphy range from Simple Stories. I bought a whole bunch of product from this range from Scrapbook Studio and LOVE it!!!! So fun and easy to work with!! The border punch is also from Scrapbook Studio and is a Knock Out punch by American Crafts, it is called Notebook I think, and has become my firm favourite!! The lovely doilies are from Evgenia's Etsy shop, you can view her lovely products HERE.

So here is the lovely sketch we got to play with -

Isn't it lovely!!!! So, we really would love for you to play along with us, I know I have lots of lovely scrappy friends out there who would have fun this!! Go and check out the Scrap Africa blog, and see where you can link your creation when finished!! While you are there, please also become a Follower, I would be so happy if you did xx

Thanks for sharing in my happy news, I hope you have enjoyed your time here at my blog :)

Well done "my sweetheart"! You deserve the chance to show off all your efforts and share all your ideas with everyone....I'm really happy for you. Just wish I had the same dedication as put us all to shame! Hope Caide is OK after his hectic trip - please give hugs and kisses to all and talk to you soon.
