the amazing race - scrapbook style!

Have you heard about the awesome new comp over at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia. A scrapbook version of the The Amazing Race is kicking off in a few days time and I'm very excited to be part of the fun as a Guest Designer for the comp!!
here's a little peek at what I've created for one of the stops along the race.
There are loads of wonderful prizes up for grabs as well as these fabulous major prizes!!!

I'm also a Kit Sponsor for the race and have been busy making loads of these {scrAp this!} felt flags that are included in the Race Survival Kits.

Be sure you check your passports in HERE to ensure that you don't miss out on the fun!

artwork at scrap the boys...

The theme for Scrap the Boys this month is to create a layout inspired by and including your child's artwork and this is what I came up with...
I was inspired by Cameron's awesome hot air balloon artwork and even managed to get a few pics of him drawing it too :)
You've still got until the end of the month to get your entries in for the chance to win some awesome prizes...check out the details here. Also Mel is looking for 3-4 girls to join the STB team so if you have boys and want to share your layouts about them be sure to check it out!!!

catching up part 3...

Hi again, I'm still trying to get things up to date and have another 'catch up' post to share :)  this time to with some layouts I created back in June over at Scrapz Biz. I started the month with a Step by Step Tutorial to create some folded paper accents for my layout
using Crate Paper Story Teller range from the store
they were very easy to make and you can find all of the instructions over in the forum if you'd like to have a go at making some of your own

Our challenges for the month took us into a few different rooms of the house and have a look who I found waking up from a nap in my bedroom...
This page started off as a Base Jump challenge
using this base as my starting point
I used a mix of American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan from the June Cuddlez Cardmaking Kit to create the page
... I'm pretty sure there are still a couple of kits available and at just $19.95 these kits are fantastic value!

Next up we headed into the Living Room for a
 Scrap a Rainbow challenge
 where I used the above colour palette to create this page of all my boys
I couldn't resist using a pic of little Cayden for the bathroom challenge :)
 and because this was a Fetch a Sketch challenge 
I also created a sketch to match 
and used a few cardstock squares to created a tiled effect or the background
 and in the kitchen I found some dessert with a Note Worthy challenge ;)

 Thanks for sticking around while I try to catch up. I think I'll need one more catch up post and then I'll finally be up to date... YAY :)

Scrapz.Biz Olympiad...

The Olympics may be over but there are still a few more days to get your entries in for our Scrapz.Biz Olympiad! We've had loads of fun competing in a variety of scrappy events and each challenge involved a sketch along with some added criteria to complete.

I was the host of the Archery event and used the sketch to come up with this page of my boy day dreaming on the swings.
The criteria was to use a bulls eye design, arrows and the word aim in either your title or journalling

I also hosted the Weightlifting event, where along with the sketch you had to add something heavy to your page, use numbers and the word weight.
I used chipboard, metal and wood veneer accents for the heavy part, numbers on my patterned paper
 and the word weight in my journalling

All entries need to be in the gallery by midnight 19 August to be eligible for the awesome prizes... check out all of the challenges and rules of play here.
