Want to Design for Bird is the Word or Prefer to rake in a Major Stash Haul??

The word is out at Bird is the Word!
Everything you need to know can be found here!!
Wendy, the site owner is one of the sweetest, most laid-back people I have ever met & when I say that it's one of the best places to work in the world, I really mean it!

As part of the Design Team you are required to create 2 pages a month, once a fortnight, containing the magic WORD, whatever that may be, but she keeps us informed at least a month in advance so if you are a "work ahead" type of person, or going away, you can plan ahead & still get your assignments in on time.

All you do is upload your creation into the DT site the day before it's due to go live & that is IT!

Oh and there's the small matter of commenting on the entries each fortnight, this can be time consuming but you do need to comment on a minimum of 15, however, a few of us like to visit as many as we can, and that's great too for when you choose to make the time!

It's fun seeing what everyone has created & deciding on your top 5!
Teaches you a lot too, so that when you are entering your own challenges, hoping to win something, you can appreciate how difficult the judging process actually is & also know what key factors can help you gain, or make you lose, that vital point...

It's really one of the most versatile challenge sites around & as part of the DT you are always encouraged to create layouts you would already be creating anyway, nothing strange or unusual & the words are always so flexible you can get them to fit photos you already have printed!!

SO PLEASE APPLY - there are quite a few places up for grabs :)


And some other great news is that my gorgeous scrappy buddy Rachael Funnel is having a blow-me-down massive giveaway on her blog this month!!
Lookie here for all the details & leave a comment, as well as posting about it on your blog for double the chance of winning!

You also need to sign up as a follower, which I can assure you you want to do anyway.
Not only is the woman a super-duper scrappy machine that churns out the pages on an almost daily basis but she has real artistic flair & her pages are always a feast for the eyes!!

Here is the exact post you need to comment on.

See what I mean by mega-stash haul???


And ****lastly*** I will also be having a giveaway shortly!

Yup, to celebrate 3 YEARS in Blogland, 
3 years which have been full of joy & pain, a wild ride I tell you!!

I have actually hosted a giveaway either here on my blog or on other sites where I have been designing or Guest designing, 
each & every month for the whole year, 
including for September, so I am going to ensure that my giveaway goes up this month but the draw will be in OCTOBER 
so you will have plenty of time to comment.

I have a whole paper line to share!!
A popular one too but sent to me in error 
(a very long & complicated story I won't bore you with) 
that actually ended up costing me in time & money, 
but I want to turn the story around into 
a blessing for one of you, 
my faithful readers & loyal support system, 
so look out here for some GOOD NEWS very soon!!
