Scrap{sketch} and the last "Got Talent" challenge

This week it was design team member, Rachelle's, turn to create a sketch and layout for our weekly sketch challenge and what a great job she did!! I love how she made her sketch into a 2 page layout, something I need to do more of!! FYI: the weekly sketch challenge will go back to being posted on Friday's starting next week.

Today the last challenge will be issued in our "My Scraps Got Talent" contest. We have had a great summer completing the many different challenges the team members have given us, with many ladies participating! A special "thank you" to the design team members for all of their hard work AND to all of those who have played along with us this summer!! It has been such fun being inspired by your creations weekly!! Look for the "Got Talent" winner to be announced next weekend!!

Have a great Friday and try to stay cool!!

"A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you."

This is the quote that I used for the scrap{quote} challenge. I saw it on the die cut page of the Dutch Mustard soup collection from Jillibean Soup and immediately wanted to scrap a picture of my husband and I using it!! The photo is not a good one, we were outside doing yard work when my daughter snapped it, but I think it still shows the love we have for each other!!

Happy hump day everyone!!

week #7 of My Scraps Got Talent

I can not believe that we are already to week seven of our Got Talent contest over on the message boards. Each week the design team members have given some great challenges, recycle items on a layout, color combo challenges, etc , to help get our creative juices flowing. This weeks challenge is a two part challenge, one part being a sketch, which most of us scrappers love! Since this is my week to post, I created the sketch and I will tell you now that I am by NO MEANS a sketch artist but I hope that you can look at it and be inspired. The other part of the challenge is to pick of song title from the list given and use one as the title for your page. Easy Peasy right?! I would love for everyone to play along this week and share your creations with us! (and here is a little heads up, make up week for any or all of the challenges from the contest is coming very, very soon!)

Crate Paper is having a giveaway for retailers!! I would so appreciate it if you would go here and nominate my store, My Scraps & More! I would love to be able to share their awesome giveaway with all of you...thanks!!

New products from CHA!!

I am soooo excited about all the great products that have been shown for this upcoming CHA! I personally think that the companies have out done themselves this time!! I have ordered from all of the companies that I currantly have in stock and new items should be shipping in August! Please look for them here first because you never know, I may just have a little promo going on! wink! wink!!

Along with all of the companies at My Scraps & More now, we are going to soon be carrying a brand new scrap manufacturer that I am really excited about! Authentique paper was some wonderful papers and die cuts that I thought would be a great addition to the online store. Each set also has a bi-fold paper set that is like different colors of coordinationg cardstock to match the papers. Gotta love that! They have four themes now: Journey, Blissful, Uncommon and Slendid collection. Two others sets are being unvealed at CHA. One is a Halloween theme and the other is a Christmas theme. You can see all of their papers here. I got my hands on the Splendid collections and had such a fun time playing around with the papers. They are beautiful! I know that everyone will be wanting to get their hands on these products!! Leave a comment here about what you think of this new company and their products and I will award a random winner the Blissful collection! You have until next Friday, July 22nd to comment.

Have a terrific Thursday and I hope to see you over on the boards!
