Scrapz.Biz Olympic Torch Relay Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to your second stop along the Torch Relay Blog Hop!  (You should have already visited Sheree's blog, if you haven't, hop along there now ;-) )

Over the next few weeks we are running an Olympiad over at Scrapz.Biz which starts
on Friday 27 July, 2012 at 7am with the Opening Ceremony.
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.
The runner-up will receive a $50 scrap pack.
The winner of Scrapz Olympiad will be invited to be guest designer for one month and receive a $100 scrap pack.
All challenges have to be completed by midnight August 19, 2012.
To kick start the comp, we are holding a Torch Relay blog hop (which started at Sheree's blog on Monday)! Each of the design team will be sharing a motivational card or layout of encouragement this week. Here's mine...

Using October Afternoon 9 to 5 range ...

And lots of Prima goodies :-) ...

Now if you visit  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 to the Scrapz gallery, 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!! :-)

Happy Hopping!!

A couple of shares...

Hello!  Looks like this Saturday posting thing is becoming a habit :-)

I'm sharing the page from this sneak I posted last week:

Here's my little cowboy ...

Just love all those Echo Park papers!  I've used papers from 3 different EP ranges :-)

Earlier this week, it was my turn to post on the Lil Red Rocket blog and here is the page I shared.  My DD starting her very first cross country race.

The orange spotty button is the star of this cluster :-) :-).  You'll see some pinwheels from the latest Rainbow Splendour sale too :-)

That's all from me today - have a great week!

PS.  Don't forget this is starting next week!!!!  It will begin with a blog hop ....

So, first up, here is my card for my Noteworthy challenge over at Scrapz last week:

{yes, there is a certain little Mister who will be turning 3 soon!!  Where does time go?!}
{yes, he does like 'effelants' :-) }

This week, our theme has been "dress-ups" ... I created a super simple sketch to 'dress-up' and scrapped a page of my Little Mister dressed up as a cowboy.  Here's a little sneak:

A Saturday share ...

I am just loving these photos - there's something about little girls, fairy tutus and pretty flowers!  This page was created for last week's Scrapz challenges ...

I have used Crate Paper Pretty Party ... as the name says, it's super Pretty!!!  I've probably said this before, but pink and green would have to be one of my all time favourite colour combos :-)

And here's a sneak of my challenge for this week:

Why don't you come over and play?  There are 3 challenges every week and you have until midnight Sunday night to enter.  Each challenge you complete gives you an entry into the weekly prize draw.  The prizes range from products to vouchers to kits!  You have to be in it to win it :-) ;-)

July Ticklez kit

I've received the Scrapz July Ticklez kit to play with this month - it is just gorgeous!!!  It features the brand new paper company Carta Bella and their "Beautiful Moments" line ... I must admit, I just adore it!!  The papers are thick and slightly textured and lovely to create with :-) :-).
Dream, laugh, imagine:
This is a pic of one of my bestie's little girls :-) ... isn't she adorable :-)

Beautiful moments:
This is my DD and her sweet little bestie :-)

In both pages, the only extra things I added were one other Prima flower, a doily and a piece of cardstock. 

Here is the kit here:
**sorry, I just checked and it's SOLD OUT!!!**  You have to be quick to grab these stunning monthly kits!!

Or, if cardmaking is more your cup of tea, there are TWO stunning cardmaking kits (that are easily used for scrapping too!!!)

Little Bo Peep:

And Little Boy Blue

Find out all the details of what's included here.

I'll be back soon to share some of my lastest challenge pages :-)
