We were amazed at the large number of ladies who applied for the Let's Scrap Design team and it was extremely difficult to decide who would make up our team for this term. Thank you to each of you who applied and if you didn't make it this time we hope you will try again!! We are so excited to see what challenges and layouts our new team will come up with over the next 3 months! Please help me in congratulating each of them!!!

Congrats Ladies, I'm so excited to get to know each of you better in the next 3 months!

This really is the one online sketch site which I really feel passionate about!! Maybe it's because I am a 2-page junkie, maybe it's because they have the friendliest(???) and most encouraging members ever, or maybe it's because Cheri sketches is so easy to work with . . . gorgeous sketches that helps me make wonderful treasures full of memories!! If you not a member yet, PLEASE go check them out HERE!


Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Hugs!

Some Scrappy Goodies To Share!

First, let me apologize for me being such a bad blogger!! When I started this blog a year ago, I never realized how much work a blog actually can be! Even to do a simple & short post can take me such a long time ~ especially with the bad internet connection we currently have. But, I know I can do a lot better than what I did the last few weeks!

We are now settled into our new home here in Saudi Arabia. We are fortunate enough to live in a very nice compound with good housing and beautiful gardens! I'll promise to do a post in the week showing you a little bit about our new surroundings. Monique started school today, and I'm still trying to sort schooling out for Ruan. It's very frustrating here for me . . . it seems if everything is taking s..o.. m..u..c..h l..o..n..g..e..r to get done than any where else in the world!! Hopefully Ruan will be sorted in the next week and then we will truly be back to normal!!

If just started to scrap again, and I'm LOVING it to be able to be creative again!! Once again I don't have a scrap room in our new home, but thats OK, since H bought me this beautiful shelving cupboard to store all of my supplies.


And I'm really loving how it looks and how easy it is to find what I need!

I haven't done many layouts yet, but let me share the few I have done since arriving here.

The first one I did was for Debi Clark's SSQ#7 "How to grow your garden" challenge at Soul Scrappers. Debi sent us these awesome goodie back full of embellies to use on your page. This is my entry:



The next one was for the weekly sketch (4-6-11)at Let's Scrap. It really was nice to see that I was the winner of the awesome prize for that week. I love to play along with Let's Scrap . . . I'm a double-page junkie!!! Here is my entry:



Here is this weeks sketch for the weekly Let's Scrap sketch. If you want to play along upload your layout (single or double page) to the Let's Scrap gallery before 11:59pm on April the 19th. Hope to see you there!!!



Let's Scrap is also having a DT call. Entries close on April 20th. All the detail are on their home page. I'm going to give it a try . . . are you???

Happy Saturday!!
