Happy Birthday Scrapbook Dreams

Scrapbook Dreams is 2 years old!  Yippee and Yahoo!  It was Shell’s site that I found on my very first search for a New Zealand ATC swap and I have been an active member ever since.

To celebrate, Shell issued 4 challenges last Saturday.  First was a scavenger hunt that took us all over the site to find the answers.  It was great fun!  Answers were e-mailed to her so no one could “cheat” with a copy and paste, lol (as if we would).

Next came a layout challenge.  The theme was of our choice but we needed to use this sketch for inspiration:


I was so pleased with my end result.  It just came together:

Challenge 3 was a card challenge.  We had to use at least 3 items from a list Shell provided and one of 4 card sketches:



Here is my entry for this one:

The final challenge was a tag one, again with a sketch given for inspiration:


And, here is what I came with:

Thanks for a great site Shell and all the hard work you put into it!

Good Grief!

I haven’t put up a post for such a long time! Talk about slack!

In my defence, now that Winter is upon us, it is pretty chilly in my craft cave so I don’t spend very much time in here.

Having said that though, I have been pottering a wee bit here and there. Making a few cards, a couple of layouts and some atc’s and tags for swaps.

So, you see, I have been doing something after all. I also made my sister-in-laws wedding invitations/RSVPs which I was really happy with.
