A2Z and Show Us Your Stuff Challenges!

Ahhh...don't you love the start of the month, when all the new challenges are listed? I just wish I had time to do more of them! Here are a couple though, that I hope you will try. This first layout here is for Show Us Your Stuff, and the challenge was to make a layout with a love theme, and to use a handmade heart on the page...


I actually kinda like this layout! I love all those photos of Em, she is such a little character :) And here's my handmade heart...


To see what the rest of the design team did for this challenge, and to enter your layout, go HERE. There are some fabulous handmade prizes up for grabs, including a prize for the first person to get their entries in for both February challenges!

And if you're looking to do a sketch challenge this month, check out this one at A2Z Scraplets...


And here's my layout...


Love this photo of Jack, taken at my brother's wedding last month. Jeez, he is growing up so fast, he's really starting to look like a young man, and not so much a little boy any more :( I used Imaginisce Garden Party papers for this layout. It's actually a really girly range, but with more boyish colours on the back. (oh, and make sure you check out the Imaginisce Blog today for the Feb challenge. Mine will be up later in the month!)


Now, A2Z are doing their sketch challenges a little differently now, and you can link your layouts up with the Mr Linky thingo. Which is awesome, I think, because that means new blogs to check out :) :)

The A2Z blog also now has a Followers thingy, so you can follow it with your blogger blog, so make sure you become a Follower over there, so you don't miss anything!!!

And lastly, guess what....


A2Z are having their very first blog hop on the 11th February!! So exciting! Make sure you keep your eye out for that one, there will be some fabbo prizes on offer (another reason to hit the Followers button over on the A2Z blog!)

Ok, I'd best get off of this computer and finish a few layouts I've got sitting on my desk.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sam, loving that Em layout, the photos look fantastic framed like that and against the kraft card! I must use kraft more often!! LOVE the heart and flower, very pretty and creative.

Your Jack layout is very handsome, he looks fantastic in the blue and the photo is gorgeous!

Have a wonderful weekend!
