Cyber crop and another lucky win.

Purplescraps had another cybercrop on Friday night.I won the bingo competition online for the 2nd time in a row. This time I won a hot glue gun from Purrfect invitations. I'm looking forward to using it as I've never had one before. I'm sure it will increase my talents/skills in scrapbooking,especially for off the page ideas.

We had to do another black and pink layout which I have here.It was to include a black cat, the logo from Purrfect's website.

Missed out on a design team :(

I read on the mystical scrapbooks site that I missed out on the design team.I was sad in a way since I like using black backgrounds,..... but onward and upward.
There is another 2 I'm contemplating entering.

Ribbon Rocks! online class.

I did an online class teaching some of the techniques for using ribbons. There are 4 on this layout. Using scraps with a brad,pleating using loops then stapling them,and 2 flowers.The flowers are made by looping ribbon around 3 fingers then cutting them or sewing them then fanning out to make a rosette.I was really pleased with how this one came together!

White with one blog

I've entered my basic grey layout ponder in this month's white with one.I really loved the old postcard and had fun making the button frame.

A scrapjack entry

Here is a scraplift I did last year of Zina Wrights layout called "No sleep for Kody". It was on Blue Bazaar but I cannot find it there. I am now entering it in Aussie scrapjacked.

And another win

I'm on a roll so it seems. My blind scrapping layout from Purplescraps has also won! I get a mystery prize for that.I did a tribute to Sydney using pictures I took from the INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL roof swimming area.

New Challenges....yipee!

I've found a new website recommended by Emily from Purplescraps . It is called and they are looking for a design team member. I'd really like to do this as I need something extra for my scrapbooking to extend my creativity and keep me motivated.
They have asked for an original sketch so I submitted my time layout from earlier blogs plus 2 layouts with black backgrounds. One has lime green and one with pink and orange.They can be seen at this website above.

I've won again.

The Simpsons layout featured below won me a $20 voucher to 3 angels scrapping on Purplescraps. I was pleased with the layout but others did just as well so I thought one of them would win it.
I'll be happy to spend the voucher on more scrap goodies though.
