I love being involved in the start of something new so was very excited to be accepted as a guest designer at Anne's new challenge blog - 'another freaking scrappy challenge' - very cool name by the way. And looking at the other guest designers, I am a bit overwhelmed to be in their company! Just stunning work.
And the debut challenge is one I loved -
The challenge is to make a layout that tells us about your dream! In your layout incorporate any two of:
- kite, or
- symbols of your dream – you can use a photo or drawing that is representative of your dream.
Journal about your dream and share it with us if you wish to in the narrative on your blog. And check out the prize - love cosmo cricket stuff.
Please also include a link to a scrapbooking technique or tool video in your blog posting for this challenge.This video does not have to be made by you - unless you want to make one. We are asking only that you share a link to a cool video that you have appreciated on someone's blog, on YouTube or wherever you find inspiration so that we can appreciate it too!!
At the moment I have two big dreams, both of which are a bit pricey so shall remain dreams for a while longer - a new house and to travel a lot more. But I will settle for a few chooks and to lose some weight! I have also included less tangible dreams in hand writing around the photo - happy, healthy children, to give help to those who need it, to generally appreciate the life I have, etc.
And here is a close up of my big cloud dreams...
Now I was supposed to put a video link in but due to very little internet speed (tomorrow can't come soon enough) I can't view any videos (thwack Matt AGAIN!!) . But I have found a site that has many numerous tutorials with some stuff I can't wait to try. The name of the blog is Cathy Can't Help Herself and I love her ribbon scrunching tips but I really like her ideas of using chipboard which is something I struggle with. So go check that out here and leave some love as well.
So thank you Anne for the chance to be involved and go check it out and come and join in the fun!!
Oh and the magazine I was reading had a terrific economical tip for those who renovate or move house. One lady in there was saying that she splurged on her newly renovated house by putting in a pool and a pond and a few other things but she saved money by keeping her old dining table - Is this implying that everything else in the house is new?? Wow is all I can say but maybe I am out of step with the real world by keeping older furniture...
