What's Been Going On?!?

A whole lotta' scrappin' is what! I have gotten so busy with challenges and contests and submissions here lately, I had to go buy myself a calendar to put down what I want to get done and when I need it done by! Do I sound as crazy to you as I sound to myself? Ha!

First of all, I've been famed! Check out Unpubbed to see me as the featured famer! Ahh....I'm soaking up my 15 minutes of fame..... Here's the layout that I won with:
And here is the layout that I picked as my recent favorite to share on the site:I used my new October kit from Sweet Pea Scraps to make it. I cut out a lot of flowers, swirls and even the tree branch, but it was so worth it. I love the colors in it too! If you are looking for a kit, you need to get this one!

And speaking of kits.....I got to pick up my kit from Jamie Scraps last week and I just about tore that thing to pieces. What I mean is that I used so much of it, all I have left is scraps....and I am even planning to use those too! It is so good that I just cannot let it go to waste! Here are some of the creations I did with it:
This kit is fabulous and works so well with this time of year! It too is a must have! Go on over there and place your order now!

I haven't officially announced that I was picked as a DT member for the challenge site, Scrap Whispers. It all happened so fast. I submitted, I was picked, I accepted, I had to do the first challenge and get it returned all in a matter of a few days. So a little info: Scrap Whispers is a great challenge blog that uses the idea of the "telephone" game where you sit in a circle and whisper a phrase into the ear of the one next to you until it gets all the way around and then you announce what you heard and laugh at how it progressed into something different from what it was originally. Well, this is all done with a layout and gets scraplifted by each member of the team. In the end, the layouts are all revealed and you get to see each persons take on the one passed to them and how the "whisper" progressed. You can read more information about it here. The whole process takes about 2 months and there are also weekly challenges to do in the meantime. Points are awarded to the winning team and then there is also an individual winner who has the most points. I will be reminding you all when it is time for sign ups to play again so you can all join in and play this fun scrappy game!

I used the above layout from Jamie's kit, as my example for the Scrap Whispers 1st Challenge. The challenge was to use Nancy Drew as your inspiration.

There is a new sketch over on Scrapbook Challenges and this is my week to host a challenge. You can see my challenge HERE.

Thanks to all those who went over to YMBD and voted in the "So You Think You Can Scrap?" Contest! I made it to Round 2. This week's challenge is to do a layout based on your favorite ice cream flavor. I'm a chocolate kind of girl, so that's what I did. I can't post my layout here until after the voting takes place this weekend. Don't forget to go over and vote for your favorite layout! Just look for the link to vote for Challenge #2.
