There will be a total of 8 events you can compete in. Each challenge is sketch-based with extra criteria as a requirement.

A merit prize will be awarded for each event. Each competitor who has completed the challenge by the due date and has completed a minimum of 5 events will go into a lucky draw to win the merit prize and a $10 voucher for that event. Multiple wins are allowed. You will go into the draw for each event completed whether you have won a prize in another event or not. Prizes will be drawn at the conclusion of the competition.

There will also be a major prize for the most successful competitor and a runner-up prize. A minimum of 5 events have to be completed to be in the running for the major prizes.

To kick start the comp, we are holding a Torch Relay blog hop starting right here today!  Each of the design team will be sharing a motivational card or layout of encouragement this week.  Here's mine...


I've used October Afternoon 9 to 5 stickers, journal card, paper, button and Doo-Dads for my card available at Scrapz.Biz HERE.



Now if you visit Chloe's blog on Wednesday and Aga's blog on Friday and leave a comment on each of our blogs (including mine today), then upload your own motivational card/layout of encouragement by Sunday midnight, 29 July 2012, you'll go into a draw for a nice little October Afternoon scrappy pack!!  You've gotta be in it to win it and we'd love for you to join in the fun!! :)

A card challenge...

Hi everyone!  Today I've posted a new Noteworthy card challenge over at Scrapz.Biz.  Since the theme is "Hide and Seek" I decided the challenge would be to created a pocket card for something a little different.  (Challenge details and how to enter can be found HERE.)

Here's my sample card...


I've used adorable October Afternoon Cakewalk goodies from the Scrapz August Ticklez Kit to create my card along with a green button.

This is the hidden part of the card...a tag which pulls out for you to write your message on.


These OA Cakewalk stickers are so cute!


If you'd like to join in the fun all details can be found HERE. :)

More cozies...

It's been a busy first couple of weeks for my little Etsy store and I just want to thank everyone so much for your support!  It's been so much fun packing your orders and sending them off all over Australia...and even to New York!


 I've been busily making a new pile of mug cozies for the shop over the past week or so...


and have just uploaded this pretty rainbow of cozies with a variety of cute buttons on each.  I think my fave button is the little wooden apple button.  Can you see it on the lime green cosy below?

Now I need to get to work on more little Blythe hats too. :)

Some scrapping...

I've got a couple of pages to share today from recent Scrapz.Biz challenges.

First up is a page sample for the sketch challenge I set.  (Details and sketch HERE.)


I used some of the remaining goodies from June Cuddlez Cardmaking Kit for this page and just added some cardstock, the yellow flower, tag, swap card and brad.


I'm really enjoying scrapping some older photos at the moment!  So fun to look back at how little the kids were and how much they've changed since then.


I love that the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan banner is already pre-sewn...made it so easy!!


This page was my sample for last week's Base Jump challenge.  (Details and base HERE.)

Last week's theme was Dress-Ups so it was the perfect time to scrap these pics of Ayden dressed as Ben 10 for the book character parade a couple of years ago.


Here's a couple of close-ups...

Everyone loved that mask! LOL


I just realised that I had big camera's on both of these pages...didn't even realise when I was scrapping them!


Ok...that's about it for today.  I'll be back soon with some more scrappy shares. :)

My new etsy store Poppy Tree Lane!

You may have noticed that things have been pretty quiet here on my blog lately...well it's partly because I've been working on opening my very own Etsy store!  I'm so excited that today I finally launched my shop...and it's called Poppy Tree Lane!

I love crochet!!  So in my little store you'll find a variety of cute, colourful items such as mug cozies and little hats for Blythe.  Here are a few examples....

These are my mug cozies and are just a few of the colours I've been making them in.  They make the perfect gift for any coffee/tea lover...great for teachers, friends, family...or for yourself!





 I've also been making a variety of Blythe hats in different colours and styles.  These are just a few...

Bear hats...


Granny Bow Hats...

Granny Button Hats...

I also have owl hats, koala hats and polar bear hats too.  :)   In the future I'll be adding other crocheted and stitched items as well.

If you'd like to come on over for a look you can find my little shop HERE or just click on the link over on the top right hand side of my blog page where you can see the little grid showing a selection of what I've got in store right now. I'm so excited to finally have Poppy Tree Lane offically open!

Edited to add:  Thankyou so very much to all of you who've visited my shop so far and made purchases!  I'm over the moon with the response you've given me today and I really hope you love your items!  Thankyou!!! :)
