Blog Wanderings

A few things I have been discovering in my blog wanderings …..
First of all we begin our DT role @ Scrapbook Outlet with some of the new BG that has been uploaded to their online site & should arrive for me to play with on about Wednesday. The Scrapbook Outlet is running a forum Competition with a $25 voucher prize – check it out!

Have you tried scrapping yourself? Check out this blog for info & updates – there are entries from all around the world, some cool prizes & some celeb scrappers who have already scrapped themselves – links to all the LO’s are on the March 23rd entry on her blog: 12x12 .. 8x8 .. 6x6. The following is from Kirsty’s blog:
Challenge Rules: All you have to do - even if you are shy, is scrap a picture of yourself on a 6x6 page (we say this becuase some of you may be a little scared - but any size will do). Tell yourself/your kids/your family about you in a short yet expressive phrase - show me YOU! You might want to scrap like my version entitled "I am a Mother" or "I am a Woman" .. you choose what you like as long as its about you. Add doodles and Primas if you can too! Email me at to enter a link to your work and i will then post the link below. Comp closes 30th April 2006. Winner to feature in The Scrapbook Magazine as part of an Article amongst chosen artwork of other entrants

And another which looks like a challenge & a lot of fun & creativity is the 21 day challenge that Rhonna Farrer is running.

Hi Lara, Kirsty's comp is great isn't it. Gets everyone scrapping themselves for a change. Hope you're gonna do one?!

Yes I saw those challenges. I'm keen to do them but still only thinking about it. Have fun with the DT stuff - look forward to seeing it.

I like the sound of the srapbook outlet comp, Love basic grey so I think even I could manage that one.

Lara said...

I'll give it a go Trina - just waiting for some pics to arrive at the Pharmacy!

Are you watching the mail!! Hehe
Some interesting sites. Have only done one layout about myself so far!!

Becky said...

Cool, I'll have to check out those challenges! Thanks!!

Yep, scrapping yourself is always the hardest, I've only done one of myself also, and I still don't like the photo! One of our classes we are running in May is exactly that. Creating an album called 'Pieces of Me' a class that will run once a month to slowly complete a gorgeous 8 x 8 album all about yourself! I have to do one also so I have examples, so its a good way to force me to have to journal about myself too, I haven't even started it yet and already I'm stuck for words!!
