Featured on the CK Club Blog & Designing for Sketchabilities!





2 big pieces of news to share for me today!!
 I only just saw the CK Feature now!!  Talk about slow on the uptake - it's been there for 10 days but obvs I never scrolled down far enough on last week's newsletter - Woo Hoo!!

Here's a little screen-save & you can see all the features here.


 Considering it's the first time I've ever entered anything into that gallery I'm pretty darn chuffed & hope to find some more time to put more in there soon.  It's very obvious to me that what they are wanting right now are quick & easy layouts so I'm only going to put in simple stuff & am actually trying to simplify my style somewhat, even though I love the layering & clustering, as there isn't really a magazine that accepts international submissions, that suits my style.

The other big news is that I was selected for the Design Team at Sketchabilities recently!  
You can click on the link to see the whole team - love that it is so international.  
Woo Hoo!!

Karan's sketches are seriously awesome!!

Not sure if you have all heard the news but Inspired Blueprints is no more.
They sent out a newsletter (I presume to all members) a couple of weeks ago,  although there is no announcement up on the blog.
The Ning Site is going to be blocked so if there are any layouts that you would like to retrieve, or any other information you could do with there, you need to go fetch it soon, only a couple of weeks left before you won't have access (the end of this month I think I'm right in saying...)

SO I decided I may aswell throw my hat in & try out for SKETCHABILITIES seeing as I no longer design for Inspired Blueprints now that they have decided not to close down.

 HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!!
