I've been busy! and some news...(and a surprise at the end)

Where to start...?

First I'll start with my next Snap and Scrap CT assignment.

This month we've started doing a template challenge instead of a journaling challenge. And I'm on the template team this month. This next week we will be featuring Gillian Foley. She created a new kit, and it's not in the store yet, so I can't get you the preview, but I am in love with the metal swirly element. (It's in the lower left hand corner of my lo).

Next up are some layouts made from more of the grab bag at ScrapMatters. You can no longer buy the grab bags, but you can see what was in them and purchase them separately.
Happy Scrap Girl's was filled with OODLES of stuff, including this BEAUTIFUL mini kit, Aiden. And you really missed out if you didn't buy it because, now it's 30% off of the full price, but it's still worth it.

This is what I made with it. Love, love, love how it turned out.

Jeni Hopwell's bag also was filled with gorgeous products. I can't find them separately yet, but I do see that the bag is down, so it's probably just a matter of time until they show up in the store. This one is a new kit At the Beach. I love that blue background paper, and the tan bg paper. Love the stitches too.

Jeni also had 2 great paper packs which I used to make this layout below. This one fulfilled three layouts for me. First was a CT layout for Jeni. The second is the Saturday Challenge is running at ScrapMatters. The challenge is to scrap about your weekend activities. (I really love Ikea...they have GREAT food, and it's a fun place to be too). GORGEOUS PARTICIPATION PRIZE. The third is this past weekend we had a Cyber Crop at Snap and Scrap. (I probably should have blogged about it before it happened...I'll remember next time...we're hoping for this to become a monthly event with prizes and fun all weekend long, so anyway...look for that). One of the challenges was a sketch challenge which I also used for this.
So, I've been kind of busy with that.

And in the way of news...Snap and Scrap is going to be having a Designer AND Creative Team call. I'll post the ads here as soon as I get the go ahead. Please come join us. It is SO much fun there.

Also, I've recently noticed that I have a follower. Thank you to Shannon who likes my blog. In honor of my (1) follower, I'm giving a freebie. I made a template out of my Andrew Up Close page (as seen above). I hope you all enjoy it (hopefully more than 1 person). I'd love to see what you make.

I've gotten it fixed. For some reason 4shared changed the file type, and I apologize if it didn't work for some.

I've never made or used PNG in a template form before. I think I did it right. If it doesn't work, will someone please let me know?

I love the look of this template, however, it comes downloaded as a "file" and cannot be opened. Is it supposed to be a PSD file? I tried renaming it to a PSD and it wouldn't open.

Thank you for sharing your talent...I am a template nut. I love this one. I will be sure to send you a link to see what you think.
