Scrap Africa


Have found a brand new challenge site - always happy to give a new challenge a go especially if it involves a sketch. Scrap Africa highlights some of the amazing work coming out of that part of the world, well worth checking out!!

And boy do they have a talented team - love their work!

I have used some photos of Meaghan and Henry when they were much smaller (and still capable of holding hands!!) from 2006. The scan has cut a little off the top so it looks a little unbalanced. I think my favourite new product to come out last year have been the Amy Tangerine line by AC. The paper and the little figures along the bottom are both her work. Can't wait to see her new lines.

Here is the sketch for their first challenge - still a few days left to join in.



Their next challenge is to do with Africa - a bit trickier but may scrap my dream of visiting Botswana... have to think about that .

I will have an update on my charity walk hopefully tomorrow. Have increased the prize significantly but haven't uploaded the photos yet - and added a second draw gift as well. Go check out the details here. trust me, it will be worthwhile donating a couple of dollars to a good cause (am I sounding desperate enough yet??).

And don't forget to think about your first love and enter Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge latest fun ride!!

Have a great weekend xxx
