Hi ladies, it's been lovely being a bit more active on my blog!!

Soooooo, I am hosting the latest challenge at SCRAP AFRICA, and I would LOVE for you to play along!!! The challenge is to use the following on your page:

 (The triangles I used are in the form of a banner) 

There is a SUPERB prize up for grabs for one randomly selected lady who enters this challenge, check it out!!

 2 Crafty strives to offer affordable and versatile laser cut chipboard products to the Australian and International Craft market.

2Crafty’s products are manufactured here in Australia and offer products suitable for scrapbooking, cardmaking, altered art, invitations and mixed media, and with over 1000 designs, every area has been covered.

2Crafty’s owner Vanessa, stumbled on the demonstration of the laser cutter at one of the Sydney craft fairs back in 2006 and although her background was Human Resources and payroll her creative mind could see unlimited possibilities and so began her journey into the world of a craft wholesaler.
2Crafty designs are supported both locally and in the overseas market and Vanessa strives to offer the highest level of customer support, and is happy to discuss personalized orders with customers via their local scrapbooking store.
2Crafty also offers a fabulous blog that is updated weekly with projects created from its wonderful Design Team with both local and international designers which includes the very talented Di Garling, Chantal Vandenberg, Elena Olinevich, Fiona Johnstone, Keren Tamir, Leonie Neale-Dawson, Linda Eggleton.

The 2Crafty website, although a wholesale website, offers you a birds eye view of all the wonderful designs that it offers. Make sure you check out the stockist list and don’t be afraid to ask your local store to order products that they may not have in stock.

O.K., so after seeing that awesome prize you really want to play along right?!?! We would LOVE you to!!!

Just playing with the latest Let's Scrap sketch!!!

It's been a while since I had the time or inclination just to scrap for fun, so when the urge hit me, I ran with it and just played on Thursday afternoon, the weather was chilly and just perfect to craft. I had the best time, and absolutely love the layout I created. I decided to use the latest sketch from LET'S SCRAP, I was on the DT for 2 terms a while back, and I always enjoyed creating layouts based on their sketches, this one by Debby was no exception!!!

Here is my layout and some close-up shots:

 ~ Large Chippie Title - Enmarc Crafts
~ LOVE letters - Heidi Swapp
~ "Today" button - A Flair for Buttons
~ Dot Border Punch - AnnaBelle Stamps
~ Blue Everyday Life PP - Project Life by Becky Higgins
~ Arrows cut with my Silhouette Cameo
 Here is Debby's lovely sketch, I used the left hand side!!

If you want to play along, why not join the LET'S SCRAP community, it's a great place to be, and the ladies there are so friendly and encouraging!!

Sketch Challenge no.16 @ SCRAP AFRICA

Hello, if I do happen to still have some blog readers left, welcome back. I really am sad that my poor blog has been so neglected of late, but my life really has taken a 360 degree turn because my Mom and very elderly & frail Gran have moved in with us. My Mom is opening a coffee shop/cafe here in Dundee, so it has been a life changing time for all of us.

Needless to say my crafting time has been almost non existent!!

I am RATHER late in getting this post up, but here it is!!!! My layout for the latest SCRAP AFRICA sketch challenge!!!!

(Sorry about the rather poor quality of photos I used here, I am really battling to find the best way to photograph my layouts!!)

Here is the fun sketch we got to play with for this challenge!!

Please stop by the SCRAP AFRICA blog for details of the prize up for grabs as well as inspiration from the rest of the fabby SCRAP AFRICA team!!!! You have until the 14th of April to submit your layout!
