oops, I did it again!

Once again I have neglected my blog. It has been a difficult couple of weeks here, starting with a shooting in the street, then I broke my big toe and then a close family friend passed away - all within the space of 36 hours!!

So, hopefully, starting today, I will feel more inclined to get onto updating.

I have some photos of some wonderful creations by my Uniting in Work ladies that I really want to share with you.

I have been inspired by Libby to come and get back into blogging. Libby's blog is always busy and updated with her wonderful creations. I have just printed off Libby's sketch challenge (click HERE to go and have a look) which is partly to help her celebrate 2 years of blogging! Libby also has heaps of links down the side of her page to all sorts of challenges and inspirational blogs. Why not pop over to her blog and take a look?

Anyway, I promise I will be more regular with the updates from now on!!

Come and play 52 Pick Up with us

We currently have a 52 week challenge happening over at Little Scrapbook Shop called 52 Pick Up.

We don't want to tie you down with a lot of rules and regulations. We want you to create!

Here's the guidelines:

1. Challenges will be uploaded by the Design Team on Sunday evenings.
2. While challenges are to be uploaded weekly, you have 52 weeks to complete them all.
3. There will to be a variety of challenges. Inspiration, technique, and product based.
4. Layouts can be 8x8, 8x11.5, 6x12 and 12x12. They can be landscape or portrait.
5. There will also be card & OTP challenges.

And of course you want prizes right?!

The 52 Pick Up challenge is not a competition. It is not about being the 'best' scrapbooker or card maker. It is about completing 52 projects for the year. It is about encouraging you to do what you love to the best of your own ability.

We will be having 52 Pick Up Support Sessions on the last Sunday of every month.

At these sessions, one participant who has completed all set challenges preceeding the last Sunday of the month will be drawn out of a hat to receive a prize. You must have completed all the challenges in that period to be eligible.

At the end of the 52 Pick Up challenge, participants who have completed all challenges will be placed into a hat and one overall winner will be drawn out.

Along the way there will also be prizes for things like craftmanship, photography, encouragement, creativity and outstanding work.

We have a mega prize pool, and it's all going to you!

Hello everyone!!

I cannot believe I have neglected my blog for so long! I just could bring myself to be on here all the time - I seemed to spend all my time on the computer and no time creating!!

So I just disappeared for a while but now I am back!! WAHOO!

To get the ball rolling, I am going to put up a few posts to show you some things I have created over the last little while, I will share a glimpse into my craft room and you will find out all about the CyberCrop coming up this weekend at Little Scrapbook Shop.

At the moment I have one child home with the chicken pox (I sent one back to school today - she was off for just over a week and was very happy to get back to school today ;) ). Now I just have Zac home, but back to school on Monday for him.

So, bye for now, stay happy and healthy!!
