So Much to Share...

First things first... Forever Always is having a big competition over the next 6 weeks. For those of you who'd like to join in, here are the details:
True Blue Aussie Scrapping Comp

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me

(Dorothea McKellar)

Join us at Forever Always for 6 fun filled weeks, full of challenges, chat and chances to win, as we take you around this great country of ours, in our True Blue Aussie Scrapping Competition !

The Details:
The competition begins on Monday 26 January 2009 (Australia Day), with the first challenge, and runs for 6 consecutive weeks.
All entries are due by 8am the following Monday, before the next challenge is issued at approx 9am.

Tell Me a Story -



This weekend just gone I actually got some scrapping done !
I participated in the SBM January Cybercrop.
I didn't win any prizes, but it was sure nice to get scrapping again.
I completed 3 out of the 4 challenges, but am only going to show 2 today.
I am saving the third for an upcoming Recipe Scrap with FA.
