Get those challenges in!!

So much going on this weekend challenge-wise in the world of scrapping. But in case you are looking for something to do, or some inspiration head on over to the re-invented 123 Challenge blog or the Kraft It Up blog and give the March challenges a go. You still have 2 days to be in the running for some great prizes.

The 123 Challenge for this month is to create a layout using the colour 'black', the word 'year' and the techique 'twine circles'. Here is my Creative Team example....

The Kraft It Up challenge for this month is a sketch...

And here is my take on the sketch....

So get into the craft room, and get creative!!

Two weeks...... not a long time for me between blog posts because I simply quite often forget to, with everything else that occupies my busy days. But it IS a long time for me not to scrap or craft in any way, which is exactly what has just happened in my life.

TWO WEEKS WITHOUT SCRAPPING!!! That is just wrong!

I have a 5mm kidney stone (and the subsequent state it left my body in after it was unceremoniously removed) to blame for the hiatus.

So needless to say, I am champing at the bit to get creative and thoroughly messy this weekend with four glorious days ahead of me.

So as I set off on my weekend of creativity I leave you with this thought....

It's not often I get the chance to scrap a page just for the sheer joy of it lately. With all my other commitments there just never seems to be enough hours in the day.
Last weekend I went away to The Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne to join in the fun at Malinda Gardner's Scrap & Chat Retreat, so I spent the first night creating this layout (in between the chatting and laughing).
These pictures are of my daughter Elise and her boyfriend Rhys getting up close and personal with a cheetah at Canberra Zoo (a Christmas present to Elise from Rhys).

I have this huge collection of washi tape, but hardly ever seem to use much of it, so I gave it a good workout on this page.

Words Or Whatever Challenge

Want to win some awesome chipboard for your stash? 
It's too easy....all you have to do is show us your creative talents using some Words Or Whatever chipboard and upload to the WOW Facebook page , or email it to: by March 15th.
